why aren't you going on holiday this year, why didn't you last year.
are you getting a new sofa/bed/kitchen soon
why don't you have a baby
why don't we buy this anymore mum
why do we always go on walks or to fun days not theme parks or cinema trips

aibu to repeatedly have to say because we can't afford it and to hate every time I have too sad we are really trying hard to get things straight through no fault of own family circumstances and massive cuts we are skint it seems like I have to say we cannot afford it multiple times a day. someone cheer me up with tales of how it gets better

YANBU 'Because we can't afford it' is a common phrase in this house. I just wish we said it earlier then we wouldn't be in so much debt!
