No. All true. The car is a 2015 Nissan Note with a manual transmission and no power locks (it does have air conditioning though). It is tiny, but the back seat can hold 2 full-sized adults. My wife is an avid thrift store shopper. She will go through hundreds of items and buy two or three things--and she enjoys doing it. The water thing is true as well. To each his own, but I think that you have to be pretty thick to be willing to pay $4 for a Coke at a restaurant. Plus, I really do not mind drinking water. Happiness and fiscal responsibility only go together well when one is willing to save on the things one does not really care about so that he can afford the things he does care about. Nothing like getting trolled for telling the truth.
