    gypped is a racial slur

  • Frugal Mama

    I had no idea of the origins of the word gypped. I’m sorry if it has offended anyone.

    Frugal Mama,
    Don’t apologize.  It’s not a racial slur by any means.  Webster’s Dictionary says it means “a fraud; swindle”.  A person who does this is a “gypster”, not a gypsie.

    Some people just like to make trouble.

    It is indeed a racial slur. I’m sorry you have confused the definition of the word with it’s origins. Please do some more detailed research than just checking a dictionary.

    Articles that have quality information like this are as precious as gold. You have given me much to think about in this article. Thank you.

    This is a great list, even years later. Saving costs without sacrificing quality is the big moving riddle. It can be done!
