Don't expect me to do something "because".

When our letting agent called me up tonight and informed me that she was being "as fair as she could" and that our rent would have to go up, naturally I asked why? The landlord isn't paying any more than he did in the preceding year, we've been very good tenants and haven't cost them any money, in fact the estate agent couldn't give me a single reason why the price must go up, yet apparently it does.

I'm not doing something just because it's the way it has to be done and the way it's always been done, I don't do things "because".
