Going on holidays with my parents - July 17th 2012, 04:23 PM

I have a bit of a problem. I'm going on holidays to Glastonbury (not the festival, just Glastonbury ) with my parents in September. My sister was going to come with us but she just said she won't because she will be bored.

We don't really plan on going out in the nights. None of us like pubs/clubs. We may have a bit of a drink in the chalet but that's it.

Problem is, I told my friend that if my sister doesn't end up coming he can come with us :/ My parents said it's fine. Thing is, I know he will want to go to pubs/clubs and will end up nagging the hell out of me to go out. I don't want to go out getting drunk it's not my thing and it bores me.

I don't want him to come now but I kind of promised him

Ugh. What should I do?

Well you can do a few different things:
-You can tell him your sister is coming even those she is not
-You can beg your sister to go
-You can still have your friend go but make it clear that you do not want to go to pubs and get drunk (but he can go by himself if he would like).

Those are really the only choices you have. If you do end up bringing him, and he starts to nag you, then just be honest with him: "This is why I debated on asking you if you wanted to go. You know I don't like going to pubs, but yet you sit here and nag me about it. If you want to go out, then go out! I'd rather stay here". It may sound a bit harsh, but he will get the point. You shouldn't be harassed on your own holiday. Its your time to relax and do what you want to do.


Best wishes,
Chris

I hope you know that you deserve it all. The best, the most honest, the most beautiful purest love in the world. Not only to be loved by others, but to be loved by yourself. To look in the mirror and think "Yes, I'm exactly who I want to be". To speak up and be proud of yourself. To be brave and open. You deserve the nicest and most caring people to walk into your life. You deserve it all, you know. The whole world...

It doesn't sound like your sister wants to go, so I wouldn't suggest trying to convince her otherwise. As for your friend, I would be upfront with him NOW, vs. once you get there. You don't want him to be under the impression that you'll go clubbing with him - let him know BEFORE you go that, as much as you love his company, you don't want to enjoy that company in a club/pub. =P Tell him he's welcome to go on his own at night, as that's his right, but you won't be joining him. If he's okay with spending the day with you and spending the night without you, then I don't see why this has to be a big ordeal. You'll both get what you want at the end of the day. =)

I could do then we can just do what we want without get the other one bored

I don't really like lying to anyone :/ I was just going to say my sister was coming when she isn't. She would probably update her Facebook saying that's she's in her house at one point
