A and B have had a day out planned for a few months. Day out is a 2 hour trip away and the opportunity for their children to have lunch at a place that sells food they can not get anywhere near where they live. Children are really excited about this. C had asked to join trip last minute which is fine, however, C and children will not eat the food served at this place and has requested they eat at a chain restaurant which they can have in hometown. A and B have said no, kids have been looking forward to this for ages, however if C and kids want to eat somewhere else then that’s fine and they can meet again after. C is mad and saying they are being selfish and not accommodating her palate. A and B refusing to budge as they had trip planned months in advance.

Enjoy your day out!

C is welcome not to come. She wants to join a trip others have planned, she needs to join in with what’s already planned.

C! What’s the food?

C! Stick to the original plans. Somebody joining late should not be derailing the plans

C is unreasonable. Kids can try something new for a change. I wouldn’t be dictated to like this.

C of course.

C is out of order.

C. They tagged along. Could they not eat somewhere else and meet again after?

C, although I do wonder on the group dynamics. Would C normally have been invited from the start? Why the late invitation?

Definitely C

Don’t change your plans.

I’m trying to think of a food that I could only get with a 2 hour drive.
So for me it must be Ikea Meatballs grin

How cheeky to invite yourself and then get mad! But I'd love to know the mystery food!

MyCatHatesEverybody Fri 21-Feb-20 17:06:56

C--heeky fucker--

flumposie Fri 21-Feb-20 17:07:14

If someone joins this thread to make the case that C is being reasonable then I shall lose all faith in Mumsnet.
