Money issues suck, especially when you're away with a group of friends and everyone else seems flush and carefree, but you're on a budget. No one wants to be in that situation, but hopefully with a good friend group you can get through it without anyone feeling bad.
In this post, a guy went on a birthday weekend trip with some friends, and had a misunderstanding that made his uncomfortable money situation worse. It ended up becoming a running joke, and now he's not sure if he handled it the right way. Here's his story...
Last weekend I went to a casino for one of my old friend’s birthday. It’s a weekend thing, we stay Friday night through Sunday morning
So Saturday night, our last night at the casino, I’m down $200 because my friends don’t let me stop gambling until they’re ready to stop gambling. I just want to lock my wallet in a safe at this point and leave the casino but we’ve got this dinner at a fancy restaurant booked and then reservations at a nightclub VIP thing after.
