DAY TRIP TO SOUTHSEA! #TightwadDad VLOG 033



DAY TRIP TO SOUTHSEA! #TightwadDad VLOG 004 | Neil Mossey



I am a #TightwadDad and finding happiness for my family with...

- Parking at the beach.
JOY 1

- Arcading in the amusements.
JOY 11
“I love that word, arcading.
Like it’s a job.
It is.”

- Fish and chips dinner on the pier with an English Channel view.
JOY 9 to 10
“Plus offered £11 off for poor service, even though we thought it was quite good.”

- Free cinema tickets (paid by Granddad).
JOY 8.5
“And tested out a game ‘Multiplex Cinema Screen Roulette’ with my boy.
The rules are simple.
You sneak into other screens, gambling that it’s not something massively wrong.
This’ll be a hit if we had more time, but had to balance it against the validated parking.
With actual money involved, there’s the real jeopardy.”

- Parking at cinema.
JOY 6
“Validated. £2.10.”

- Supermarket chain mini store shop: Milk x2.
JOY 5

And here is a transcript of how we reached these scores.

[MUSIC] Hello I’m Neil - #TightwadDad.
I made a video where I took a trip to London, and I measured the Money vs. JOY.
And today, it’s my son’s birthday.
And we’ve come here to Southsea!
[MUSIC] So already the spending’s started.
We’re on £4.10 for the beach parking.
Joy there is 1.
[MUSIC] Doing first?
Arcade.
Arcade.
[MUSIC] [COIN PUSHER NOISES]
Arcading.
Score out of 10 for Joy.
Arcading?
Eleven.
Eleven?
So it was 11 for the arcading.
[MUSIC] 9 to 10.
So shall we call it 9 and a half?
9.5?
Yeah.
9.5.
So now we’re gonna go to the cinema.
It’ll be interesting to see how much money versus joy that brings.
[MUSIC] It’s amazing.
I’d rate this a 10, just walking here.
Just being here’s a ten?
So just being in the multiplex place is a ten.
Yeah.
[MUSIC] Hey Joe what did you think of it.
I liked it.
Yeah?
So how much Joy was that.
Well it was all so sad.
It was sad - we laughed, we cried...
I’ll give it an eight!
An eight.
An eight and a half.
Yeah, I’d give it-- eight and a half?!
So for this particular film, it was an 8 and a half.
And parking was £2.10.
How much Joy for the parking?
Erm, I think they should’ve done it...
I’ll go for a... six.
So a six?
Six for a parking?!
That’s quite high.
Okay.
Six.
