My friend has been hyping up the new gilmore girls reunion since its been annouced. My mums currently on holiday so the plan was for her to come to mine as i have no babysitter. Wednesdsy she annouced her friends told her friday was that friends last day in the area before she moved away.

I wasnt that bothered about the new revival until she hyped it up so much. I brought face masks booze etc to make it a good night in.

I told her wednesday weve been planning this for over 9 months so id be hurt if she picked someone else over me. She said shed try to see her thursday night instead.

This is a friend she saw the weekend befpre when telling me it was her anniversaryso couldnt come out then had a couples meal.

No answer Thursday at all and no communication till 10 to 7 friday to say moving friend was busy thursday so shes going out with her that night shed see me saturday.

I had to rearrange saturday night to see her and then nothing till half past 6 to say she had a migraine.

Friday night i watched the first episode and she wasn't impressed i watched it without her. Tonight im watching the rest.

Aibu to annoyed and watch the rest without her? The next time i might see her is next friday due to her work commitments.

I think I must be missing something as I've never watched Gilmore girls! It's everywhere at the moment!

It hasnt been on tv for 10 years and theyve put out a year in gilmore girls. Badically should close a lot of holes in the last series

Hang on....am I understanding this correctly?

You have spent nine months planning to watch a new episode of an old TV show in your house, with one other person, wearing face masks?

Pretenditsaplan Mon 28-Nov-16 04:08:58

Yes we dont get a lot of time thats girly and when the new episodes where annouced she insisted i watched all the old episodes so im up to date. I wasnt as enthusiastic as her but watched them and by last month was actually looking forward to it

You must know that she IBU and YANBU? She dicks you around and then gets snotty because you had the temerity to watch the programme without her royal presence?

Seriously, this woman is not your friend. She reserves the right to blow you off at the shortest of notice whilst insisting you dance to her tune. Tell her to get a grip and stop being such a shit friend.

Shes going to say well i couldnt not go out as moving girl id never see again and i feel like im being over bearing for a tv show shes very good at making every issue she causes somehow reasonable and completely my issue for challangung her on.

Pretenditsaplan Mon 28-Nov-16 04:57:08

Everything is my fault she invited someone to my birthday (at my house) without asking me if i wanted her there. I liked the the girl invited but shes ridicously loud and everything has to be her way so i can deal with her on her own but not in company. My entire birthday was spent fending off invited girl from picking 'in good humour' on one of my less confident friends. The entire night was a write off but "she didnt know and tried to stop it" by making it worse.

OP- If you reread what you have written objectively, you would realize you don't have a friend. You have a manipulative bitch in your life.

AmeliaJack Mon 28-Nov-16 05:12:20

So to summarise, this "friend":

Has invited guests to your home on your birthday without asking.

Has failed to ensure uninvited guest behaves appropriately

Has dropped you twice at short notice.

Has dropped you for someone she is "never going to see again" shock

Has repeatedly cancelled a long standing arrangement (that she initiated) to watch this program and is now complain you didn't wait for her.

However ordinarily nice/fun this person is this is not a person I'd be making any future advance plans with.

I might be prepared to do a last minute night out with her but I'd refuse all other invitations. I certainly wouldn't be inviting her to anything myself.

She's not really worth your time.

Thank you. I think im like most people on aibu i know its not acceptable but i needed to hear it from outsiders

Boomerwang Mon 28-Nov-16 07:03:16

Bin her off. She's taking the piss.

"shes very good at making every issue she causes somehow reasonable and completely my issue for challangung her on."
'Every issue she causes'. So that would be multiple issues. This is not an isolated incident.

I think you need to tell this Queen Bee to buzz off. She is no friend to you and never will be. You are merely her captive audience.

MandyFl0ss Mon 28-Nov-16 07:28:16

Watched the 4 episodes over the weekend and was very disappointed! Just thought it was all so unlike the original characters!

HarryPottersMagicWand Mon 28-Nov-16 12:15:14

YANBU. She sounds like she uses you and when a better offer turns up, she takes that instead. Bin her off, she is no friend.
