Not actually a friend, more of an acquaintance who we met through a friend. Got along well and they reached out to say it would be good to meet up. We arranged to go out for a nice walk and dinner at a fancy pub (at their request). They said feel free to invite another friend or two so there could be a bigger group.
Invited another acquaintance who we thought would get along with the other. Booked the pub and put deposit down. Been in the calendar a while.
Then get a message from acquaintance 1 saying can we cancel this time because they’ve now been invited to go for a walk in the countryside and stay at their friend’s holiday cottage, so they’re going to do that instead.
AIBU to be pissed off?
- It’s rude to cancel plans and then say it’s because you got a better option.
- We invited the other acquaintance as we thought they’d specifically get along. We will still enjoy their company but makes it a bit more awkward having a couple and one single person go for a meal.
- Now going to have to cough up the £10 for the booking.
