Keeping details limited for impartial advice.

Person a has tickets for an event. Offers them to person b day before said event (after offering them around). Person but says yeah I'm off that day, sounds awesome.

Person a texts next day to arrange payment. Person b says yeah cool can't wait to go etc. But no payment forthcoming.

Person a waits around all day, can't start dinner in case I need to dash out to meet to give the tickets.

Person a texts 3 hours before event as no word. Person b says 'oh no I'm not going now'.

I then call person b and (politely) said, 'in future, if you don't want to go, if you could let people know so they can sell the tickets to someone else?' I am very close to this person so they would be very disappointed if someone else got there first, so didn't put them up for sale on fb etc after offering them.

Person b hung up on me and blocked me. Yes I am person a. Is person b overreacting?

Yes person b is overreacting and is a bit of a dick for messing you about.

Person b is a twat and needs to pay for ticket if they agreed to it in advance of the day.

Didn't need all the person a person b stuff though, just makes it harder to understand.

Yes person b is overreacting. They should of told you earlier that they didn’t want to go.

Person B is an ass, I presume you are Person A? grin

Person B shouldn't have waited around all day and should have chased up payment more but person A is wrong for not saying she didn't want the tickets sooner

Person B is a dick.

Maybe person B originally thought you were giving them the tickets as a gift and changed their mind when they realised you wanted payment for them?

Person a and b just nade a simple AIBU more confusing than it needed to be.

Were you very clear from the start you expected money for the the tickets?

Although either way its unfair she didn't tell you sooner and yes I'd be bloody annoyed too! So YANBU!
