s/o of "You Can't Afford This"..."They/You Can't Afford That!"

<< < (3/3)

I get a bit prickly when my sister or dad do something nice, because Dad has been critical in the past of his idea of how my money should be spent (and I am pretty frugal, but he is cheap) and my sister thinks I am still 5 and can't function without her telling me what to do, including embarrassing me in public by loudly proclaiming "You can't afford that!"  But, I have learned to tune them out, or tell my sister quietly that I am fine to please not be loud, and they have in turn learned to back off and when they do do something nice ...extra at Christmas or Birthday or a small just because gift, I can take it in the spirit it is given.
