One of my friends is getting married. We don't get to see each other often but will text fb etc. we are more than acquaintances but not besties ( somewhere Inbetween )
Anyway some girls are organizing her hens, The texted asked for a deposit of $30 , I assumed that was it for the night so I've just paid. ( thinking you can buy your own drinks to suit your budget or in my case hide the fact im not drinking )
I was only going to make a small appearance anyway to say hi as I'll be 10 weeks. Obviously I won't be drinking and know I'm sleepy so to me $30 was reasonable for the atmosphere and a quick hi.
I've now got a text saying its $130 total ( so I owe $100) and more detailed event info. Pretty much ( yes I know it's a hens) the $$ are going towards alcohol.
I've replied back I can't go now as I can't afford the $100, but to keep the $30 and I'll catch up another time.
Truthfully I don't want to spend that amount to only be there for 2-3 hrs drinking soft drink and avoiding nibbles. ( be to sick to not go at all, $30 I'll part with $130 I'm not comfortable with)
Ps yes the girl organizing it knew I was pregnant.
So what I'm annoyed at is we didn't get the full costs until after and the description of the night was not detailed to begin with either.
