The Question Club
a month ago, two of my flatmates and i discussed having a party. it ended on something like "ok, cool, let's have a party on may 1!" there were references to it for a few days after, but we hadn't discussed it for 2 weeks before today.|
since we hadn't talked about the party, i figured it was off and made other plans to have dinner with other friends (you can see where this is going). tonight, my flatmate mentions something about the party and i said "err, the party? on may 1?" she says yes and i tell her that i've got plans because i didn't think the party was actually happening. i can tell that she's upset by this, so i then say that i'll try to work something out and do both.
-the party and the dinner both start at 8 and the people from the dinner can't come to the party
-my initial thought would be to go late to/skip dinner, but, since my friend is making a serious home-cooked meal, this would also be rude
-i would prefer to go to the dinner, but feel a moral obligation to go to the party
what would you do? what do you think i should do? do you think i do have an obligation to go to the party?
(note: i'm not looking for you to validate me, i'd like your genuine thoughts, thanks!)
( ok, more details under cutCollapse )
