Thriftiness is in the eye of the beholder

An article featured on the front page of yesterday's Edmonton Journal reported on a study about coupon-users and those around them, as conducted by researchers at the University of Alberta.
The general consensus was that A) we view people who use coupons, and those standing next to them in line, as being cheap; and B) statement 'A' is no longer true provided those people in question have above-average looks.

Translation: As long as you're hot, the rules no longer apply to you, and you can get away with anything.
