Her Friend Promised Her a Free Vacation, but When They Got Home, She Began Demanding Money and Wouldn’t Take No for an Answer

A woman recently asked for some advice because she didn’t know what to do about an unexpected bill. Here’s what happened.

They decided to go on vacation

Not too long ago, a 28-year-old woman and her 21-year-old friend, whom she called ‘A’, decided it would be fun to go on vacation together.

There was a house they could use

A suggested they go to a certain place in Europe because one of her family friends had a house there they could use.

It sounded great

Of course, the woman thought this sounded like a great idea. Vacations were expensive, and if they didn’t have to pay for their accommodation, they’d have more money to have fun with.

They worked out dates

Now that they knew where they were going, they had to work out dates they could both do. That took longer than anticipated because they each had their own commitments to work around.

The flight was expensive

They eventually managed to find dates that worked for both of them, but it meant they had to book their flights close to when they wanted to leave, which cost a lot more than if they’d booked earlier. But the woman didn’t mind because of what she was saving on accommodation.

She paid for the car

To say thank you to her friend for organizing the accommodation, the woman said she would pay for the rental car and all the insurance. Again, it wasn’t cheap, but it felt like a nice gesture.

They had a great time

The woman said, “Anyway, the holiday is great: drinks, clubs, shopping, all the things two women in their 20s do on their holidays.”

She asked for money

Right at the end of the vacation, the woman’s friend suggested they club together to give her family friend some money for the use of the house. She wanted them to pay a few hundred euros each.

The woman was shocked. She hadn’t expected to have to pay, and it hadn’t been mentioned up until now. She told her friend that she didn’t have enough money in her budget to give her anything. Her friend dropped the subject right away.

She got a text when they got home

They left and headed some, and the woman didn’t think anything more of the conversation until she got a text a few days later from her friend bringing up the subject once more.

She wanted €250

The text asked the woman to pay €250 (approximately $265) for the use of the house. Her friend said it was the “right thing to do.”

She refused to pay

The woman refused to pay a penny. She said it wasn’t fair, as this hadn’t been discussed at the start of their planning—before she’d agreed to go—and she didn’t have that kind of money anyway. Her friend suggested she pay in installments.

Was she wrong?

Was the woman wrong to refuse to pay, or should her friend have explained that she wanted money up front?

The internet responded

One person said, “You paid for the rental car expenses. She apparently paid for the “gift” to thank her family friend for the free lodging. Sounds even to me.”

Another person commented, “If this wasn’t agreed upon, then she shouldn’t force you to pay.”
