Let’s say you own a house. With the house comes a yard and with that comes a lot of various things for the upkeep of the property. Things like a lawn mower, hedge clippers, paint supplies, gas cans, etc.
The problem is you have no where to store them. Consequently they get damaged by weather and people sneak into your yard and steal your stuff – because you don’t a fence.
So you propose to your wife, or whomever resides with you (who knows anymore), to shell out the money to build a lockable shed in the back yard.
Well, your other half isn’t keen on spending the money. You explain that the family can cut it by moving some money around and cutting back.
Instead of listening reasonably to your proposal, your other half, he, she or it, goes on a tirade, exclaiming that taking from one portion of the household budget will hurt the well-being of the family.
