I hate to spend money when it is absolutely unnecessary. My wife says that I am cheap, but I think I am only being thrifty. I don’t think there is any reason to waste money if it isn’t something that is absolutely necessary. When my wife and I go out of town for any reason, we always stay in a hotel that is cheap. I don’t settle for a place that isn’t clean, but I don’t need to spend two or three hundred dollars just to rest my head. It seems silly to spend money on a bed and a toilet. My wife wanted to make plans for the two of us to get out of town for our anniversary. She decided not to consult me about the plans, so everything could be a surprise. One of the surprises was the hotel where my wife and I stayed. She picked a much nicer hotel then I would have chosen. The hotel had central heat and AC in our room. I’ve never stayed in a hotel that had central heat and AC. I know my wife spent a fortune on that room, but I didn’t dare complain about the cost. She really wanted to surprise me with a wonderful weekend away from the kids and she managed to create the most romantic getaway. I had a lot of fun while we were in the hotel and I must admit that it was nice to have amenities like room service, massages, and an indoor pool in the basement. Those things are never available when we stay in cheap motels.
