Cheap Frugal Billionaire Complains About $4 Idaho Cup of Coffee
There's an old wives' tale that the more money a person has, the stingier they are with their money. If you believe the breaking published reports from this Idaho town, then one of the world's wealthiest people has an issue paying $4 for a cup of coffee in Idaho.
As we've disclosed here, the world's wealthiest have again set up camp in Idaho, discussing world domination, money mergers, and perhaps the latest video games.
Thanks to Starbucks and other coffee shops, Americans are trained to pay extra money for their latte or regular cup of coffee. How many times have you looked forward to that magical cup of coffee in the morning or to power you through a long boring meeting?

However, if you're Warren Buffett's wife, four dollars is too expensive for a cup of coffee in Idaho or in any part of the civilized world. Mr. and Mrs. Buffett are said to be worth over $115 billion.
