    Yes, same here!

    A: I haven't got enough money.
    B: Yes, same here! And I always get too much homework.
    (taken from ENGLISH IN MIND 2, Cambridge University Press)
    Does A mean 'I haven't got enough money, either.' If so, why doesn't he say 'No' instead of 'Yes'?
    THANKS.

    Re: Yes, same here!

    When B says "Yes" he is agreeing with A. "Yes" indicates agreement.

    Re: Yes, same here!

    If the dialogue goes like this:

    A: I haven't got enough money, have you?
    B: Yes, I have.

    Does B mean that he has enough money?

    Thanks.

    Re: Yes, same here!

    I think it means so because 'Have you?' means 'Have you got enough money?'
    I am not a teacher.

    Yes.
    “Every miserable fool who has nothing at all of which he can be proud, adopts as a last resource pride in the nation to which he belongs; he is ready and happy to defend all its faults and follies tooth and nail, thus reimbursing himself for his own inferiority.”

    — Arthur Schopenhauer
