I don't think Barney is out of line or being narky. I think he just honestly thinks you really should go. Whether you agree with him or not doesn't make his comment rude.
I don't particularly think you should have to go, but I'm a bit of a home body.

Since Barney is a close friend then I would take the comment for what it was and not stress about it. Then as he is such a close friend I would say ' well you know me, seriously cbf going all that way and all that hassle, you know we're not that close'

I have no contribution to the thread, I'm just impressed at hearing someone saying "throws shade".

I am not sure what I think. For me it depends on the specifics surrounding the previous friendship between the person turning 40 and the person who has ditched the party. If they were once close and/or the person turning 40 is going through a rough time I could possibly think Barney was ok giving the ditcher a hard time. If not, maybe Barney is a little out of line. But not by that much.

Maybe Barney knows the party will be legen.....wait for it.........dary.
Sorry, couldn't resist. I don't think he is necessarily out of line for saying it if he's a good friend. But if you decline and he continues to hassle you, then that is out of line. I'd just say "yeah, I know friend came to mine, but for XYZ reasons, I just can't right now" and leave it at that.
