Seeking Opinion


I got this "Complimentary" ticket from my friend.  She didn't inform me beforehand or ask me if I could make it for the event.   Just pass me the ticket after she got the ticket from the Instructor she purchase from.  When I got the ticket from her, I was not sure where the CC is, as I have never been to the CC before.  She do not know the directions too.  So I told her I check the venue and get back to her and we will go together.

Actually, I was hesitating, as the venue is very far from my place, which is from the West to the East and I have to start my journey early.  If the venue is nearby, am ok with the timing.   But in order not to waste the ticket, I decided to go.

On the day itself, I went to her place bus stop there (we near not far away), and we took the bus together.  On the bus, while chatting, she told me that the Instructor private message her in Facebook, told her about the event, without asking the venue, she purchase two tickets from her.  I was telling her, usually I don't go till so far for events and also it's early.  From our place, we have to take a bus to  Bedok Interchange which is 1 hour plus a bit, then change to a feeder service. And the fare for the trip is more than the price of the ticket. 

It's a bit rushing for me as I have a rehearsal at 3pm that day for an event at my place there this coming Sunday. I have before the event, have WhatsApp her I have a rehearsal on and  I have to rush back for a shower before going for the rehearsal. I can stay till the end, but if they drag, taking group photos, it will be very very rushing, so I left early before the session end.  I have inform friend I will leave earlier, at first, she said she wanted to leave early with me as she do not know the way back.  But in the end, she stays till the end.  I have told her how to go back.  Not to sure will she be unhappy that I leave earlier.

Then another issue is, she went to sign up for another event on this coming Sat without asking me if I have anything on, just sign up and then inform me about it.

So I WhatsApp her, next time, if she wanna sign up for any events for me, can she let me know before signing up just in case I have something else on, she seems not happy.  Reply me anyway I don't like events on Sat.  Reply her if u don't like events on Sat, in the first place, why sign up for it.  She reply this coming Sat, will be the last Sat event and it's ok if I don't have the time to go.

Wanna gather some feedback.  Will u sign up events for your friends first, then inform them about it.  Or will you ask your friends whether if they are available on that day, if they are available, then sign up.

Another thing, is it wrong of me to said, can let me know before signing up for events next time just in case I have something else on.

  1. Nobody dare to ask me out so last minutes and I would freak out for sure before turning them down. This is definitely no manners and lack of courtesy as you are not her lap dog.

    Someone likes to do this to another blogger who often had to swallow everything in silence. Hint Hint! Wink Wink!**

    1. So no worries, you didn't do anything wrong for requesting to be notified ahead.

      My best friend who is very wealthy and always asked me out last minutes when he visited KL. I would turn him down even when I was free cos he had done that too many times even after I told him to inform me a day earlier but he chose to be arrogant. I am not his floor mat.

    2. Not that I want to be ya ya by requesting to let me know beforehand, if I didn't said it out, who know's, she might take for granted, next time, she will do that again and again, and so to said, every time, I have to be yes, yes, yes, no right, like what you mention, I am not her lag dog...

  2. Hi Sharon, I would definitely consult my friends first before signing them up for any event and I too would expect them to do the same with me too.

  3. Nope, I won't do anything without checking with my friend first. Also, if somebody sign me up without telling me and if it is not convenient, I won't go. You are so nice to accommodate your friend even though the venue is far and it is too rush for you.

  4. Your friend is so presumptuous, how can one make decisions for others without asking first? I wouldn't want a friend like that.

  6. Even though you're friends, you are not at their beck and call. There should be mutual respect between friends. I would be pissed too.
