Why not get a maid instead? Also, **** stingy maids who want to use my cleaning products and vacuum rather than having their own. Or am I the stingy one in that situation?

Re: Stingiest thing you've seen someone do

In my experience it is standard to use their own cleaning products, but give you the option to use yours if you have specific requirements/preferred products. Using your vacuum seems weird.

I pity whatever poor toilet is subjected to the assaults that necessitate monthly brush replacement.

What would be the difference between a "nice **** brush" and a "regular **** brush"? Are there actually luxury **** brushes? How would one make my life better?

Euros are so weird.

The difference is that the first one is disgusting.

Here's what I have, but I don't replace it every month.

I suspect an old housekeeper of spreading a flea infestation from someone else's place to mine by using her own vacuum. Never again!

Re: Stingiest thing you've seen someone do

I've thoroughly thought about this for at least 15 seconds. I cannot think of one good reason to mount a toilet brush on the wall. Someone please enlighten me.

You can mount it on the wall right by the sink where you can wash it whenever you feel like being stingy.

I just buy tenish of them everytime I visit IKEA and have my maid change them out every few weeks. They are like one buck a piece. Also what gregorio said about nice **** brushes. Nice ones are the nut low because they are not easily replaced if you're not a trillionair.

BTW greg the new trend is completely black ones because you dont see the **** on them.

If it is somewhere in a public place, then it is better when this toilet brush cup, this thing where you stick it back, is very stable and immovable.

O_O How much? Did I see it right? 1280 canadian dollar? Really?
LOLOLOLOL
I did realize it only after a third look at the picture

edit: Why does it cost so much? Even with porcelain and so.
edit2: there is some irony in the name of the shop and 1280 CDN toilet brush

You wouldn't put a cheap $140 toilet brush like this one in your carrara marble bathroom.

Re: Stingiest thing you've seen someone do

I haven't touched a toilet brush in years and I can't imagine rich people have either. Why are do these things need to be displayed, rather than just kept in the cleaning lady's bucket?

I am somehow unsure, is that a brag or a beat.

Re: Stingiest thing you've seen someone do

Enough of this toilet brush nonsense.

Just saw this one after my kid's swim lesson.
The community center has one of those donation boxes with a big bowl shaped opening on top where kids can drop coins down a chute, and then watch them spin around for awhile before dropping into the hole in the bottom.

So we're waiting for the people in front of us, a mom and her 2 kids who are like 3 and 5 years old. She takes out a handful of change and the the smaller kid immediately reaches in and grabs a few coins out of her change purse. Couldn't tell if they were nickels or quarters, but he drops them in to the chute real quick.
Meanwhile the mom is picking out a couple pennies for the older kid when she looks up and sees the coins spinning around. She goes "NOOOOOOOOOOOOOO not those ones, no silver coins!!!" and proceeds to dive into the bowl to snatch the coins up as she explains to the little kid that he can't use those ones, only pennies.
The older kid drops both his pennies in the other chute, and it turns out the mom has no more

Little kid is crying for another coin but mom says NO and leaves without giving him back any of the other change to use.

Re: Stingiest thing you've seen someone do

The $1200 is just some stupid amazon crap because there are none left and they're only being sold by randos. I'm sure when the product was stocked it was not close to that price.
