Have you gone through any time in your life where you cursed your frugality? When the desires of *now* kicked into overdrive and made you wish you didn't care so much about your future? What made you say "why care about money later when I can care about this today?"
I bought my co-op over the summer. I had the opportunity to purchase an indoor parking spot (the seller held onto it as a perk for the future buyer) for $120ish a month, or be assigned a random outdoor parking spot for free. I of course took the free outdoor parking and was promptly told that if I changed my mind and wanted an indoor spot, I could get on the wait list, which was approximately ten years. I scoffed, because other than a bit of a shorter walk, the only perk really would be not needing to uncover my car during the snowy winter.
And as I dug my car out of 2-4 feet of snow on Tuesday/Wednesday (between the wind and the snow plow pushing snow and ice RIGHT AGAINST MY CAR, the pile easily reached halfway up my windows), I thought of that indoor spot I could have had, and how I could be nice and warm with a non-achy back if only I was willing to spend $120 a month. How could I be so stupid!?
This is for fun and full of sarcasm - I obviously don't really want the indoor spot, but damn I wished for it then. So, what have you seen/experienced that made you say "Damn my mustachian ways??"
