Sorry for the ramble I'm dyslexic and really struggled to write that

Sorry I tried to read this but you need to use sentences with full stops.

That isn't fair at all.
I can understand why you are upset.

That should be yanbu!

Unfortunate crosspost.

OP, might they still pay to go the events individually?

My best friend is able to pay but at a cost to her as will work out more than the membership she already made me book a week of work for a holiday that we never went on x

pie op says she's dyslexic, and struggled - was there any need for that to be the first rely she received!

As I could fully understand your post op, YANBU. That would piss me off hugely! Any chance there's time to rope another friend into coming?
Or as you'll be round like minded people, why not go solo - you may have a blast, or worst case at least enjoy whatever it is

They sound a bit flakey. Do you have other friends you could get involved?

MaidOfStars Tue 12-Apr-16 13:14:51

Moose Judging by the timings, pie posted before the OP's second post.

Are the memberships transferrable? If so, could friend A buy a membership for friend B so friend B doesn't have to wait for a space to come up?

Moose I posted at the same time as the op update. Sorry op if I offended you.

YANBU. I've had similar happen to me, I told 4 friends about a concert to see a band we all like. They all said yes, they'd all like to go. So I (stupidly) bought all 5 tickets on my bank card. Only one friend came with me. I had to sell the other three tickets to a touter and was out of pocket by quite a considerable amount. I learned my lesson and now will only buy when I received the money first. YANBU.

Ppie10 YABU. I could understand the op perfectly. It's not difficult. grin

No offence taken I can never read what I say anyway blush my other friends coming to now but it's the principle of it that she new a while ago and didn't think to tell me before so I had time to make plans
