No more drama

I mentioned a while ago that in August I will be going on vacation to Jamaica. While that is still the plan, I’ve been experiencing nothing but DRAMA about this whole friggin’ trip.

The original plan was that me, my BFF and two other people would be going together. One person had to drop out because she will be going away with her parents that week. Which I didn’t think was that big of a deal. I just figured it would be the three of us then.

However the other two thought otherwise. All of a sudden they are telling me we HAVE to find a fourth person to go with, otherwise it won’t be any fun. Umm excuse me? Does having a fourth person really make that big of a difference between having a good time and being miserable?

I believe a trip, or anything really, is what you make it. If you have no worries or fuss and just enjoy yourself you will have a great time. I mean I went to Paris by myself and I can’t even speak french and it was one of the best vacations. It never occurred to me that I couldn’t have fun unless I was with someone else. I feel like my friends are behaving like teenagers and if there aren’t a certain amount of people involved it isn’t cool and it will be lame.

Now they are scrambling to find a fourth and I’m sitting here really pissed off. I don’t want to invite a person just to invite a person. This isn’t a day trip; this is a 7-day trip where you will be with someone basically 24/7. Excuse me for not wanting to go away with someone I barely know. What if no one gets along?

Also I am taking it really personally. Every time they say the trip would be lame if it’s just three, I feel like they are saying I’m not fun enough to go on vacation with. That it’s me they don’t want to be stuck with. I’m seriously really hurt, and every time I try and say something they barely listen or shoot me down. As of now my BFF still says she’s in, the third says he will only come if there is a fourth. I want to them him to fuck off.

I feel like come August I will be taking the trip by myself. Which right as this moment I wouldn’t even mind, because then I wouldn’t have to deal with this shit.

No offense but it sounds like your friends are being very juvenile. Who cares how many pepole go? Who cares is someone you don't know well goes (if you are not sharing a room with that person, of course)?

Are you expected to spend 24/7 together, entertaining eachother each moment? That isn't realistic. I think your friends need to chill out and have fun! :-)

That is silly. Why look for a person who you aren't good friends with just to have a 4th person? I love only traveling with 3 people. It is all about the fun you have and what you make of it!

I'm with you, I love traveling by myself. One of my best trips was my Italy one. I loved doing what I wanted, when I wanted.

Hope things get better!
