I Don't Buy it

Meaning/Usage: Disagree; to not be convinced

Explanation: This phrase comes from a popular way of getting agreement, which is "buy in."  For example, a company director can say, "we need buy in from all the board members to proceed."  In this statement, "buy in" is getting agreement.  Therefore, if you "don't buy it," then you are not agreeing.

"He said he didn't do it but I don't buy it."
"Their prices are supposed to be better but I don't buy it."
"She said she was sorry but I don't buy it."
