I want to get some other folks thoughts on an issue Hubs and I can't seem to see eye-to-eye on.
Subway is currently running a "special" this month.
A 6" Meatball or Combo Sub is $2.
When we get Subway, #2 Son always gets a Meatball Sub.
He will eat 1 12" or 2 6" subs worth.
So we went to Subway to get some subs to take home for dinner the other night.
I tell Hubs to get #2 Son 2 6" subs, so we pay $4. If they make it as 1 12" sub, it's the regular price of $5.
We save $1 on his meal if we purchase it as 2 6" subs.
Hubs says that no, if he wants 12" of sub, he'll buy 1 footlong sub and not 2 6" subs.
He's spending an extra $1 on this when he doesn't have to......and he REFUSES to do it my way and save that $1.
It is driving me insane!
Why is he so bull headed? It's not like I am asking him to use a coupon or do anything dodgy or illegal!
I know we won't starve for want of him spending that extra $1 on the sub(s) but why spend it when you don't have to?!
You do stuff like this....spend unnecessary money when you don't have to......and it adds up, right?
It just goes against every frugal fiber in my being.
I think he'd better off saving that $1 because the alternative is spending many more dollars than that when he has to pay for additional blood pressure medication for me because he is making it shoot into the stratosphere, he is!
I guess I could go start drinking heavily instead of getting annoyed to no end.
So how about you?
What side of this globally important issue do you come down on?
*Would you buy 2 smaller subs and save that buck?
*Or would you be so inflexible and stick to the way you always buy the sub, as a footlong and go ahead and waste money by staying with how you have always done it in the past?
As you can see from how I worded this question, I harbor no bias toward either side of this issue.....*snort*....
