Dear Blader, (advice for the lovelorn)
« on: April 10, 2007, 06:56:20 PM »

Or anybody else:

A customer of mine gave me 2 free passes to Washington National (fairly spendy upscale local course), which I have to use this weekend.

I offered to take a friend of mine, and he invited 2 other people that I've met a couple of times...

Do I:

Offer to split 4 ways, or

Use my free pass, and let the friend and the friends friend sort that out between themselves...

Did you offer to pay for you and your friend with the pass?

You have to use the pass, there is no reason you should be out of pocket any money on this, except for minor peripherals. I say use one pass for you, one pass for your friend, and since he invited others, which is fine (did he check with you?), but the onus shifts on him, and them.

Yes, and it's a really outstanding track, they've held several NCAA Pac-10 tourneys there. I think some qualifiers too?

If I were in the same position as your friend, I wouldn't expect you to split your pass, but I suppose you could clarify what he thinks the arrangement is or should be and go from there.

I've heard of it before.  And what the site shows certainly looks nice.

I don't like it when things like this happen to me (I get shivers just thinking about it); sorry your having to deal with a situation like this.  Talk to your friend; tell him you only have 2 passes, and that you wouldn't be going if they hadn't been given to you.  Then tell him that you had thought of inviting him using the extra pass and that you're glad that he is looking forward to it.  Explain to him that - because the passes were given to you - you don't have passes for the friends that he invited.  So if they still want to come, suggest that he and his friends work out something between the 3 of them to pay for the costs of that.

Dealing with in the sense that you are gonna let your friend know that you only had 2 passes and that he needs to work the rest out with his friends. 


Scratches Head Is what I said any different than what everyone else said?

Actually, when MikeW told me he was bringing 2 others, I did say 'I've only got 2 passes' figuring that he would take the hint....

And yeah, it's a GREAT track...

Slow down:

When you meet me, you'll realize that sarcasm and irony are the canvasses I work in, which don't really translate well to the ThE InTerNeTs sometimes.

There is not enough information provided at this point.

In my mind, the principle issue, not yet disclosed if I have read this carefully, is whether or not you would enjoy copulating with either or both of the two additional friends invited by your friend to round out the foursome.

Once we know this, I'm confident we can arrive at a satisfactory solution for this particular conundrum.
