Dear Admins and readers Sorry but I really need to vent this so delete at your discresion and/or ignore the post. I spent 4 months planning my very own trip out of this country without having family with me. I wanted to do an excursion somewhere, anywhere alone without having someone else planning the whole trip or feel like I'm just tagging along. To my suprise, my mother actually allowed it but only under the condition that someone (a friend) came with me. The only person interested was my "best friend" but he required a passport. I did a little research and gathered opinions (some from you fine people from an earlier post) and put together a few options to present to my friend. We settled on Cancun in Mexico for a whole week, end of October when theres very little travelling and prices are just where I can afford. He objected around that timeing b/c he wanted to see some nice @$$ and suggested Febuary during spring break. I told him like 3x over the past 3 months that Febuary is a bad time to go when prices skyrocket and I would have to book now to ensure a spot plus I already booked the time off which I was suprised at with my new job. So here I am 4 months later and now I have to cancel the whole thing. He still hasn't gotten his passport and hes still towting the idea of going in Febuary. He now can't get his passport in time for me to book, which I already have for myself, but the real ticker...he had the papers for the passport for a whole month but was too f--king lazy to do anything about it. I surmise he did this intentionally to force me to go in Feburary just so he can see a few more hot a$$e$. I cannot reschedule my time off with work since it gets busy around that time so I've had to cancel the whole trip and I've now also paid a fine for cancelling through the travel agent, who thankfully went easy on me since it was through a contact. I don't know but am I pissed?!?! Like never before...I'll be going back to work as regular on that week I had booked off (they only allowed b/c its slow during that week).
