The rest of your twaddle is just that so not worth further comment. The demonstrative advice you give of "living within my means" is ludicrous since you are quite clear it is within the means of your parents that you are living.


couldn't have said it better...  I've never gone into debt either (i'm 24).  My grandfather bought a car for me, and pays for my college, but I don't go around looking down on people who are in debt because they aren't lucky pieces of crap like myself.  I agree that living within your means is important whenever possible.  However, in many cases that just isn't practical.  Be grateful that your parents have been so kind to you, and that they have the means to do so.  Thinking that you are somehow better than others because of this fact is absolutely ridiculous.  I'm sure that if most of the men on this forum asked for help from their parents, their parents would help them whether they had the means to help or not.  Many probably realize that their parents have their own things to worry about so they do their best to live their lives on their own hard earned dime.

i've got a slightly different take on this, being a dad who paid for his kid's school, and whose kid has periodically moved back into the guest house when things got tough. I've never regretted or begrudged the money I've spent or the support I've given. but if i ever heard her sounding like you in your original post, i think i would be sorely tempted to kick her off the tit. until you're on your own, functioning as an adult (meaning: paying your own bills, etc)., you are in no position to give anyone else advice about finances. fortunately, she is a great kid fully aware of how fortunate she is, grateful for the help she gets, and eager to ask for as little as possible.

hey guys thanks for the response.

so to update you guys....

i told him that i was just going to eat my plane ticket and not go. and then he said 1k. and then he told me to just come out and not worry about anything. so i did.

i blacked out the first night we were there and played some $100 min blackjack with $400 lol. made a little over $6k on the hottest 45min streak of my life. gave him $1k and now i dont have to stress over saving up for a new apt next month. funny how things work out sometime.

I don't think this emoticon has ever been more richly deserved:

i told him about it. his offer to me is 1k for everything, and i wont owe him anything. that leaves me w/ 200 for 3 days of spending money. the first cabana does not include food/drinks.

im thinking of saying no because there are things i want to do there such as play poker, gamble, see some stuff...am i being selfish and unreasonable?

i might counter with 500 upfront, whatever i have left ill give him when i leave, and he can add whatever to my tab...if im there for it (i told him i wont do brunches, the first cabana, spa shit).

I would not counter. If he is offering a discount of a thousand dollars I would consider that very generous and not risk insulting him by asking for more of a discount. I understand he is a good friend and I would want to keep it that way.

 

I would consider what is more important, supporting a friend on a very important day in his life, or wanting to play poker, gamble, see some stuff. If I was going for the wedding I would make the trip about my friend and not what I want to see.

 

Imagine if he floats you the whole $2000 because he wants you in the wedding, but while on the trip he sees you gambling hundreds of dollars at the poker table?

 

If you are in the wedding party your job is to keep your friend happy and make sure he has a good time. It is his day.
