This is Mrs. Roy's finger with a big bandaid on it because Mrs. Roy busted her knuckle trying to be being cheap.  See, there was just a tiny bit of makeup left in the bottom of Mrs. Roy's container and I was trying to pry the lid off to get to it.  Unfortunately, Mrs. Roy's hand slipped and an injury resulted.

Mrs. Roy is really mad because (1) I had more make-up in the drawer since I bought two bottles on sale with a coupon a couple of weeks ago; (2) I've tried to get those containers apart before I know how hard it is; and (3) it was make-up!  Purely a vanity item; it's not like I was trying to get the last drop of gold or medicine out of that silly container.

Sometimes being frugal is a good thing.  Most of the time it's a good thing.  But Mrs. Roy crossed the line today and I ended up hurting myself.  Hurting myself to save a nickel is just plain wrong.
