Frugal or cheap?
Just curious what others think of this. I hate paying for coffee, so usually make my own. I was running a meeting early in the morning, and since I am the lead, I do feel there should be coffee for those that have to start early.
So I stopped off at Tim's on the way to work to pick up some coffee. Tim's had coffee 'boxes' that hold at least 12 small coffees. I knew I needed less than that as there where less people than that and not everyone drinks coffee. The box was over $15. So I asked them if they could give me 5 XL coffees poor them in the box which should be $10. Still too much in my opinion. They were really confused when I asked, and then said I had to buy 6 XL which is how many the box actually holds, ($12), I grudgenly agreed.
Was this cheap? It kind of bugs me that when you buy the 'box' they are basically charging you regular price for small coffees, even though it's easier to poor, and charging for XL would seem more fair.
Also, after my wait it took 30 minutes extra. Would it be cheap to just use the extra coffee pot (which I donated) in the staff kitchen, and put it in my meeting room, and buy a $18 can of Tims, and brew my own.
Just curious on the thoughts. I am feeling ripped off on my coffee
