to think that dd's friends mum could have told me

that she knew when the Miley Cyrus tickets were going on sale ???

A while ago she said she knew she was touring but didn't know when. I said i'd have a look on the net and if i found anything out i'd let her know, as her dd and mine are huge fans.

I didn't find anything and then before I knew it the tickets had gone on sale and i'd missed them.

I assumed that she had also missed it as she'd not mentioned it, and I hadn't mentioned it as they were now sold out.

Anyhow, saw the mum on Monday and she asked me if I got tickets, and I said no, only for her to say oh we did.

It would have taken her 2 seconds to txt me and tell me that they were going on sale.

Meant to say, that the mum did know I wanted tickets, as I said i'd buy them as my dd's xmas presents.

Presumably she thought that you might purchase "her" tickets and she would have to go without ..???

It's like the woman I know who has access to some sort of priority hotline for Wimbledon tickets. She absolutely refuses to share the number with anyone. And she's a committed Christian who does loads of community work and is always banging on self-righteously about how we should all be sharing and selfless! Makes my blood boil.

YANBU by the way smile

Sorry but YABU.

If a friend did this to me then yes, I would be upset. However, she's not your friend, she's your dd's friends mother. Clearly the more people who apply for tickets, the less chance she'll have of getting any.

Did you ask her to let you know when she found out?

I think you are probably being a bit unreasonable.

FWIW my DD is also a big Miley fan but I refused to buy the tickets as they were £60 each, which for a kids concert is IMO way too much, esp as I'd have had to buy one for me (and I don't particular fancy it).

Oh no no no, you have escaped. You should feel sorry for her not angry at her grin
I cannot imagine anything worse than having to sit through a Miley Cyrus concert. My DD also big fan, but no way no how was I going to buy tickets!

Well yes she is dd2's friends mum but I see her every week at the girls swimming and we chat for over an hour, plus the girls have been best friends since nursery so yeah i'd say she is a friend.

When we spoke about it, I said i'd let her know if I found out anything and i then wrongly assumed she'd do the same.

If i'd have found out first then I would have made sure I told her.

Perhaps I am just too nice, but I know how much both my dd and hers wanted to go so it not telling them wouldn't have been an potion for me.

Sorry about typos, Ds is telling a very long story about spiderman and I am having to ohh and ahh in the right places.

All I can say is 'lock it, bop it, polka dot it.'
Or some such twaddle.

Just stay in, put a bit of Miley on the DVD and eat popcorn.

ROFL grin

Dd2 will not be impressed when she realises her friend is going.

Think of the £120 saving. Bet you and DD could enjoy a nice treat for much less.
