At least if you're planning on paying them back in good faith, that shows you're making an effort.So, this didn't really make me hugely angry but kind of dissapointed.
So, I went to see Jason Aldene with my friend Jeff last May this year and I'm seeing Keith Urban with him and two other good friends next month. I owe him a **** ton of money, but he understands I will pay him once comic Con passes because I'm saving up for it, in which I will use my birthday money and Christmas money to pay for it at the very least.
What made me a little dissapointed is this. So, this money I'm giving in return is going to his parents, which I understand. However, what made me a little angry was the fact that they dragged me into this without me being able to defend myself or without my consent. I'm not made out of money and I have my own stuff to worry about. The reason I can afford going to Mohegan but not paying them back is because I want to use this opportunity to try and earn some extra dough that I can use to save up. I didn't ask to go to these concerts, Jeff respectfully paid them for me out of his own choice and I really appreciate it. If it were up to me, I would have paid for them myself. End of the day, paying them later is better than not paying them at all.
Thankfully though he did talk to them and mentioned they apologized. I'm just at that age where I don't appreciate being talked about behind my back and if I do rant to someone about an issue I have with someone else, it's just me venting to someone close while at the same time, still planning to have a talk with them and or just chewing them out (you guys have already seen me chew out pleanty of members here) because most of us aren't in high school anymore. Some of us are, but a good portion aren't.
If it's too much of a financial strain, I'd walk up to them and say, "Thanks for buying me a ticket, but I really can't afford it right now". Then they have the option of giving the ticket to someone else, or might let it slide and not expect you to pay at all.
I'm probably close to the parents' age, they will appreciate you being honest...
