You Know You Married A Scot When . . .*

Me: I'm heading out to Target for a few things, okay?

Rob: Oh, then you can stop by Dunkin' Donuts and get a free iced coffee.

Me: You know I like my coffee hot. I'm not that into iced coffee.

Rob: But it's FREE! It doesn't matter if you like it. Who are you?

*Some have called the Scottish cheap, but Rob prefers frugal.

    Oh so it's the Scottish part of Tom that, that ideal stems from?

    I can't stand cold coffee products but I thought about stopping by to get a free iced coffee anyway. I'd just ask them to hold the ice. Do you think that would work?

    We PA Dutchies are pretty darn 'frugal' too. Although I prefer cheap. ;)

  3. I don't like coffee... but iced coffee, well that's a different story... mmmmmm freeee iced coffee. It just so happened there was a DD right by the train stop! :-)

    I always like thrifty......:)

  5. LOL! I don't like iced coffee either, but I will admit that I stopped and got mine.
    I get this from my dad. He must have some Scot in him somewhere (Ireland is not THAT far away...)

  6. I must have a touch of that in me. I go for free whether or not I want it.

    I've always like the Scots.


Go ahead and say it. You know you want to.
