Help? What do I do? *long*
Ok, to start off with a little background. Joe's (my fiances) Best Friend decided he was going to have his wedding in Florida, with a week long boat cruise to some fancy resort places. He asked Joe to be his best friend before his fiance decided on this lavish location. Anyways, we are the less off of all their friends, so they asked everyone else if they would go along with this. Then they asked us last and told us if we said no, it was all off and they would have to cancel everything. We said yes our of guilt, and prayed we could swing it. We ended up moving to a move expensive apartment 2 months ago (this was planned in April) and now we are paying heat and lights. Our bills are coming in and looking at our budget? We cannot afford the $400 a month payment they need for this cruise until February of next year. Keep in mind we already put a $750 deposit down.
All along Joe's friend keeps saying there are other people who can afford this and have 5 kids, or they can't afford it but they are making the payments and doing without. They just took a trip for petes sakes?!? New Iphones, new bed... sounds like money hurts there hey?
Anyways, we told his friend on June 25th that there is NO WAY we can afford it. We have kids to take care of, a more expensive place and animals that need care. Not to mention my dog/cat/rats go to the vet when needed. $400 a month is not going to happen here. He said ok and that was that. He showed up a week ago trying to talk us into going again. I told him no, and we'd like a refund. He said there was no refund for the deposit (which is a lie). So last week I contacted the travel agent and told her we are not going and we would like a refund. We'll be getting $525 of the $750 back after penalties.
Here's where it gets good. Today, I woke up to his fiance's Facebook status saying "has an angry fiancee, and I don't know what I can do about it. It's not my doing :D - I can just try to make him feel better. Sucks when friends aren't straight with you." Friends aren't straight with you?! WTH Because we went behind their back and canceled a booking in OUR NAME that they were supposed to cancel right after the 25th? I personally think Joe's friend didn't tell Annie and she found out from the travel agent and Joe friend is telling her lies to make it look bad on us. He's covering his butt!!
And then today while I was buying groceries, I had to deal with Joe's friend working security at the store. He stomped up to me and asked if Joe was with me, ahh no he's not. He stomped away. He came back minutes later and said "Tell Joe when I get off work I'm coming over and we'll all have a good talk" and stomped away. Every 10 mins he stomped by me with his chest puffed out. We're still waiting for him to come over...
So like, am I not in the wrong here or what? These people are childish mental cases. Anyways I had to rant to someone, before I blow a gasket when this guy shows up. Best part of it is, I never liked him to begin with!
