Dd1's birthday in a couple of weeks. For her present we decided to get tickets for her favourite band, nice hotel, just me and her. Dp arranged the tickets (I was getting nowhere on my phone). I just asked that he get decent ish ones - not the most expensive, but not too far from stage. So he says we're in first row of seats, slightly to the side.

I've just checked on the seating plan - we're 3 rows from the fucking back!!

Tricky. Did he chose the seats or just go with the best available?

Were they the only tickets left?

Is the date on the computer formation the date he claimed to have done it?

They could have been the other lyrics seats left.

Or if dates don't add up they could be panic bought "anything will do" tickets

Been the only ones left

He could've read the seating plan backwards and thought they were close to the front.

(I may have done similar once blush)

They were the "best available" aka the cheapest. There are better tickets available - less than a tenner more. He doesn't think he's made a mistake.

Did he lie, or was he just confused?

Gileswithachainsaw Sun 23-Oct-16 11:42:13

I'd he pissed off too then.

If hed have said you could have wired him some of the money and got the better seats.

Ginmakesitallok Sun 23-Oct-16 11:42:47

Yes - think hes mixed up "block" with "row" - thought we were in block 200 odd, row 300 odd, when we're actually in block 300 odd, row 200 odd.

I didn't need to "wire him" money - he was on the seat next to me, joint account. He showed me where seats were - I said ok, he booked. Received tickets, I check them, they are nowhere near where he said they were.

No yanbu. I hope dd enjoys it regardless

Gileswithachainsaw Sun 23-Oct-16 11:49:43

Can you buy the better tickets and sell the others on cheap to a friend or family member or something?

Gileswithachainsaw Sun 23-Oct-16 11:50:15

Honestly, of course. With the seats explained.

Befire I get jumped on grin

Nanny0gg Sun 23-Oct-16 11:50:51

So he showed you, you agreed and then he booked?

He showed me totally different seats to the ones he booked!!

MumOnTheRunCatchingUp Sun 23-Oct-16 11:52:30

So you ok'd it!!! How is this his fault?

MumOnTheRunCatchingUp Sun 23-Oct-16 11:53:08

Well I suggest you've got bigger problems than a seating plan then!

He openly lied?

Gileswithachainsaw Sun 23-Oct-16 11:53:34

Is it like when you book at the cinema?

You highlight the seats you want and then add to basket?

If hue highlighted the seats then changed them when you agreed it sounds deliberate

He needs to organise better seats & sell the current tickets on. His mistake, he sorts it. And he needs to explain how he managed to misunderstand the process so badly - does he have form for cocking up fairly simple stuff like this?

Ginmakesitallok Sun 23-Oct-16 11:57:52

No - he was given seat numbers- he went to seating plan and found them and then showed me the seats he thought he was buying. I said ok. Only, the seats he'd shown me weren't the ones he was buying. The ones he has bought are completely different. He didn't lie - he made a mistake. His attitude just now is that he showed me the seats and I said ok. He just shrugged his shoulders when I said he'd gotten it wrong.

Ginmakesitallok Sun 23-Oct-16 11:59:27

Yes he has form - which is why I usually go the organising. But he said he'd get the tickets and I didn't want to be double checking him - he's an adult ffs.

Realistically what would you like him to do about it?
