OK, I have to crab here a bit.
My best friend Joe and I went to NJ two weekends ago to hang out with our friends Jon and Amy, the car broke down and we got stuck in horrible traffic, had we not been visiting them, we would have gone back home, but we forged on, to spend what little time we could with them. This past weekend was my sister's wedding. I had a great time but I'm sick and I got so stressed out I got little red stress bumps all over, unless that was an allergic reaction to food. This coming weekend (labor day) we were supposed to go to a redsox yankees game in NYC with jon and amy. Now Joe and I were both sick of riding in the car from the previous trip and you'd think Jon and Amy would be understanding. I'm also sick and don't want to go. I discussed this with Joe, he doesn't want to go, so we decided I'd take the blame for being sick, they'd read behind the lines and it would be no big deal. I wrote an email to them saying that I wasn't feeling well and that I was wondering if they could sell our tix. I was going to then offer to pay for them if they couldn't sell them, but since it's such a hassle to send them money I'd prefer to have them sell them. It's not about the money I swear.
So Jon doesn't really reply and I IM him, he's really not commenting, so Joe sends out an email at my prompting inviting them and me to a bbq at his house (here in boston ) if the strike is on (MLB strike may ruin the game anyway). Finally I get an email from Amy saying first of all, why does my being sick exclude joe from going, and if the strike is on I'd be happy to come see you, joe. Joe wrote back that he didn't want to go. We haven't heard anything since yesterday. Now I think we're right to want to stay home, seeing as we just saw them 2 weekends ago, went through a lot of trouble and heartache to see them, (my friend found out his dog died while we were away), and they don't seem to appreciate it. I would have appreciated a, "Sorry you're not feeling well Jen, Joe do you still want to go or should I sell your ticket too?" I dont' get it. I am not trying to cheat them out of 22.50, if it is indeed about 22.50 then I'm really pissed, I somehow think Amy believes I assumed joe wouldn't want to go b/c I wasn't going, I said we had discussed it, that should be the end of it.
OK so sorry this was long, but should I just keep my mouth shut and not say anything? In all honesty all Joe and I want to do is stay home and sleep, and if they do end up visiting him, I don't even know that I want to go see them. Am I awful? What should I do? My current plan is to keep quiet until I hear something from them. Sorry I'm ranty, I'm sick, and tired, and no one seems to appreciate what great lengths I go to in order to please people, and when I want one weekend for myself, I'm suddenly a huge b*tch!
