Why do people on this site always do this?

I've seen this a lot on mc.

A lady will say she doesn't have resources (money) for food, bills, another child, ect.

In come the idiots who say "at the dollar store it's only....."

Really?  Do you people who make this comment not understand how money works?  Do you really think a person hasn't already thought of that?

If someone says they can't afford a dollar, unless you are looking at their bank account, then accept that they do not have a dollar.  You don't know their situation, they do.  Do they need to itemize every expense and every cent they have for you?

Once money is gone, it's gone.  It doesn't matter if something is only a dollar, if a person doesn't have that dollar, it's not affordable.  There are only so many hours a day, and many variable when it comes to making money.  It is not an unlimited well.

Why is that so hard for people to grasp?

Not now, but there was a time when I was.

I honestly can not fathom not having enough money for the $1 store.

I don't think I have ever told anyone in my life to go to the dollar store.

"Why is that so hard for people to grasp?"

Because there is really nothing else they can do except offer a suggestion.  

Perhaps you should be asking what do the people who post such things as what you describe, expect.

It's a pet peeve of mine.

I saw it tonight on a post.  I remember a few years ago I came on here sad I couldn't have more children, thinking mothers would be understanding. Nope.  I was torn apart and told over and over if I really wanted one, I would find a way to make it affordable.

Its mom confessions.. People generally dont have empathy... But sometimes I wish I had gone to school for financial advising because those are the people I wish I could help make a financial plan with them to help get them out of their hole...
