A woman planned a vacation for more than a dozen friends, but became enraged when an engagement proposal started to gain attention.
She took to Reddit’s “Am I the A ******” forum for advice. She and her 15 friends will all turn 40 next year. To celebrate, she has planned a trip for the whole group next year. This problem arose when a friend asked him if he could use the trip to propose.
“A lot of my friends will be turning 40 next year, so I asked my closest friend Jenn in the group if she wanted to have a joint birthday and make it a great trip,” she wrote. “I planned and booked a trip for the group. Destinations searched, flights, accommodation, activities, everything booked and organized, coordinated schedules for 16 people, etc. The trip is early next year and I just heard that her long term partner is planning to offer this trip. I asked if he could possibly find another opportunity and offered to help plan another trip for the group before or after to celebrate and surprise her with the proposal.
Jenn’s boyfriend did not respond positively to the request.
How to pack the perfect weekend bag:
“He was fuckin ‘and said I was super selfish for wanting to take the’ all around me ‘trip, and I just feel bad,” she explained. “Maybe I’m a big spoiled baby. But I feel like that has changed from an “us” trip celebrating the milestone together to an engagement trip and a party. They’ve been together for almost a decade, so the proposal is a big deal, and I’m SO happy for them, but I feel a bit taken for granted for all the hard work I’ve put into planning without help, and now the trip is going to be all about planning the engagement and the wedding. I feel like the asshole and now I’m super guilty.
Reddit users thought the poster was the right way round.
“You shouldn’t spoof other people’s events,” one user commented.
“It is selfish to have usurped an event that should concern you and your friend,” said another.
“He hijacks your plans,” wrote one person.
