Conservative

Ok so I was talking to someone the other day and I used the word "conservative." Not in reference to some modest, Christian individual but in the case of not giving very much. Por Ejemplo (for those of you who never took Spanish that means For Example) "She is so conservative when putting sprinkles on the cupcakes." It was interesting because for days I started to wonder how the word "conservative" became associated with not giving very much. Yet that is the impression conservative individuals have apparently given: I may have it to give but I won't give away too much and for no apparent reason. Its like a derogatory term such as "Indian Giver." It made me sad for some reason.
