I felt the support of EHellions behind me
« on: May 31, 2016, 08:04:51 AM »
I'm heading for the beach next week, in the company of my BFF, her daughter (Jane) and daughters friend (Doe).We leave in 4 days. We're driving down in BFF's small but surprisingly roomy car. (background- BFF, BFF's DH and I all share a house- we bought it together a year ago- Jane lives at home because of a disability)

Last night, Jane informs us that Doe won't go if we're taking BFF's car. It's too small and she'll be nervous riding in it.
Jane says Doe says we need to take the SUV (that is having some mechanical issues).
Without even thinking, I responded " That's not possible for this trip."
Jane then asked, "What do I tell Doe?" And I felt the power of EHell as I said "Tell Doe we're very sorry she can't make it on this trip and we hope she can make the next one."

BFF & Jane looked at me like I had 2 heads when I said the above. But this has been planed since January. If Doe had problems riding 4 hours in BFF's car, she should have spoken up sooner, and it's possible that other options could have been found, but not the week before we leave.

Thank you EHell for the shiny spine!!

That's my purse! I don't know you!

Go, you! Hope you have a great weekend.

I'm curious to see what Doe decides to do.

Suprising update....

Doe countered with offering to take her car, a mid size suv, if we would help drive. We're at the beach now, and it was a very pleasant trip.

Thank you for your support!
