I Am Not Cheap. Or "Frugal".

Let's see if I can explain this. I was making tasty treats for a get-together which was to occur sometime in January, and be a combined holiday/Genki's b-day celebration. In my attempt to find out when this would take place and where, seeing as the things were completely homemade, I asked her when it would be, as my Christmas presents were edible.
Because I am so hurt by her response to my question, I shall post a bit of her reply here. "Edible? Going to frugal way this season, aren't we? Ah, well, the most I can give people are cheap-o candy canes cos I had to quit my job...T-T"
...She totally meant cheap. She called me cheap. My mother agrees.
The things were not cheap...truffles and fudge and homemade gingerbread cookies...on a lovely plate...
Grr. Just grr. And then she called ON CHRISTMAS wanting me to take her somewhere. TWICE. Although to be fair, one of the times she also asked if we were doing something tomorrow like we'd planned. I told her no. I was angry and I would be tired after shopping all morning so I wasn't sure if I could hold my tongue. And I didn't really want to see her.

*beep* Ky-bot!

Today at work someone decided I was automated.
No joke. It was a customer, who had just gotten back from the airport, where, apparently, everything is automated, and when they heard my friendly voice, they assumed I was too. When he got to the window, he apologized for being a jackass (his words, not mine). He'd thought I was a recording for taking people's orders, and had behaved stupidly under the assumption I was such and he wouldn't be dealing with me at the next window.
People...*shakes head*
