Woman labelled ‘selfish’ after refusing to pay for her friend’s holiday – but not everyone agrees

A WOMAN has been called ‘selfish’ for not wanting to pay for her friend’s vacation, but not everyone agrees with the verdict.

The vacationer was part of a group of friends planning to visit Mexico together.

However, one of the group, who called herself Mary, lost her job while the trip was still in the planning stages.

She then asked her friends if they could pay for her trip after she’d spent all her own money on things like concerts and travel – and her own mother refused to foot the bill.

One of the friends explained on Reddit, “Yesterday we had a little get-together to make sure we all bought our plane tickets and to schedule a time to go out and buy what we need.

“Mary then asked, ‘So who has my plane ticket?’ We were all very confused, she then dropped the bombshell on us and told us that her mother had forced her to pay back all the concert tickets and merchandise because she didn’t know how much Mary actually spent on it.

“After Mary repaid her mother, she was left with $450 (£404). That wasn’t even enough for the round-trip tickets.”

Her friend then rudely said they could each pay their share of the room and plane tickets – which would cost them all an additional $675 (£607).

The woman continued: “I immediately said no that that $675 (£607) could be used on souvenirs and anything else I would buy in Mexico.

“My three other friends said they could see if their parents could lend them the money because they really wanted Mary to come.”

She was called “selfish” by some of her friends for not wanting to pay for her friend, leading her to take to social media site Reddit to see if other people agreed.

Most people sided with her and slapped her friend for asking her to pay.

One said: “Mary is going to ruin this holiday and this friendship.

“If your other friends want to cover for them, that’s their choice, but you have no obligation to pay for someone who is financially irresponsible.”

A second added: “Wasting all your savings knowing you have a vacation planned with your friends group and then expecting them to fund your entire cut is incredibly selfish.”

The Reddit poster later commented that she was canceling the trip herself, saying, “I’m going to try and change the dates of my plane tickets and hotel room and turn it into a solo trip.”
