keep it to yourself

let me tell you something that really chaps my hide. when people say:

"i can't afford it."

"i can't afford it" to me, is someone asking for pity. lock it up. if you are looking for pity, a free ride, or a hand out you are barking up the wrong tree.

i can't tell you how much i HATE when people say that.

'want to go to a movie?'...
'i can't afford it.'...

oh really, well you didn't seem to have trouble affording that $200 bar tab last night!
say what you mean, and quit trying to find pity in everyone else's wallet.

try this:
"i prefer not to spend my money on that."

cool. okay. got it.

see how easy that is?!
