tight ass bitch


TIGHT ASS BITCH

Don’t be a tight ass.  And certainly don’t be a tight ass bitch.  The difference between the two is a tight ass does everything to not spend money ( not save.  Saving money in a fiat currency environment is equal to burning it on a long enough time scale.  By not spending, you need not earn in the first place and that is a freedom all its own ).  A tight ass bitch is being a bitch to not spending money, in the prison sense of the word.  Let me give you an example.  A tight ass doesn’t spend money on a car, biking to work in the winter.  A tight ass bitch doesn’t spend money on a proper winter piece of clothing.  High, I’m Jim and I’m a tight ass bitch ( Hi, Jim! [ shades of an Alcoholics Anonymous meeting in case anyone missed the reference ] ).  Okay, here’s my story.  Before I moved to the high deserts back 40 patch in the lower bowels of Hell, I was living in the states capital, Carson City.  The climate is much nicer there, but rent is way too high and the place is swarming with more Yuppie Scum than a pile of offal is with maggots.  I had run across an old OD Army jacket at a thrift store for $5, my originals having failed to survive a move a long time ago, probably when I went to Florida.  The only catch was, the size barely fit me.  But it was $5, and warm enough.

Once I moved to Elko, I started wearing wool sweaters underneath this jacket.  In severe weather, I wear a thin wool and over that a middle thick wool sweater.  I was warm enough, I thought.  Because the jacket was too small, I didn’t have room to put the insulated insert in place.  In effect, I just had a windproof water resistant outer shell over my wool.  After six winters, and just now at the start of the seventh, I wore this jacket.  Until the zipper busted a tooth and I broke out my previously purchased jacket from my stores.  It was a Swedish surplus, and is was NOT down filled ( I hate the crap ).  It was just like the American military jacket except the insulated insert is built in and it was polyester rather than cotton.  And astonishingly, it was heads and shoulders warmer than what I had been wearing.  Before, I said I was overheating if I overdressed.  I did, but it was like having a fever.  You know, alternating too hot and too cold.  This new coat, I’m REALLY overheating if I dress as before.  In short, it works like a real jacket should.  Cost?  $25.  I made myself stay uncomfortable for six winters because I was too much of a tight ass bitch to spend $25.  Now I feel pretty retarded.  You don’t want to be foolish with money and waste it, but neither do you want to so tight with a buck you are being foolish.  Word to the wise.

  1. Military surplus items are some of the best bargains in town James.

    The only problem is that in many cases, the sizes being offered are at best, large on down, and not for the bigger guys.

    I see that the sportsmans guide regurlarly has the wool trench coats for well under a $100.00, but generally not in my size. I had an officers bridge coat (A fancy, trench coat version of the pea coat) one time that fit well, and that I foolishly gave away. These coats being of wool construction, offer a lot of warmth due to their extended length, though they can also be heavy.

    1. Heavy ain't the word. More like Back Bending. But warm is warm.

  2. And someday you WILL be calling yourself a tight ass bitch, again, for buying that 7.62x54r for 303 components.

    You missed out on an excellent REAL winter coat/parka from SMG. I think it was Czech. Brand new, unissued for $20

  3. Actually the lesson sounds like an issue I have recently been seeing some of myself too. '
    in my case a non electric propane heater I had saved for emergency heating I finally broke out to try and keep my new structure warmer while finishing it up- but wouldn't you know it I couldn't figure out how to get the propane to go through it. And the manufacturer quit making it 5 years ago and no longer supports it. I finally got it figured out almost a week later. But the point was if it had been an emergency - I would have frozen before it got working, because I had just stored it away and didn't try it out.
    I have also found that some of my stored away spam is on the verge of going bad- Again I just stored it away and didn't check up on it.

    The lesson is clear. Check up on your preps regularly, and see how well they work in the real world.
    Not just eating the food you store, but shooting the ammo, wearing the clothes, using the equipment. A little here and a little there a couple times a year should take care of a lot of it.

I must moderate-trust me. You don't want to see what happens otherwise. Sometimes it takes awhile to respond as I only check two or three times a day. No N-Bombs, nothing to get me libeled. Otherwise, have at it. If you criticize me, make sure to praise my hair first.
