We all know how hard it is for parents to get out and enjoy themselves. So is it a crappy move to ditch your parent friends when they say they're bringing their kids?
A man took to Reddit to ask if he was the a-hole in exactly such a situation. His friend has a habit of announcing that he's bringing his partner and child along to social occasions at the last minute — and this guy's sick of it. He asked the internet for advice on whether he's in the wrong.
Here's the story.
Hello, I’ll try and make this short and sweet. I (18m) planned to go to the beach with my friends (18m, 17m, 18f) yesterday. It was cold but nice and seemed like the perfect weather for surfing.
However, before I left the house, my friend “Jay” announced to the group chat that he’d invited his girlfriend “Ellie” and their toddler with us. Honestly, I know how these things go, the day ends up revolving around whether the kid is too warm or too cold or needs a nap, so I made up an excuse not to go and stayed at home with my dog all day.
