You absolutely should give him his money back and tell him to kick rocks. I don’t know what he was doing or why, but he just wantonly decided he wanted no parts of your birthday. Didn’t even offer a phone call or text?
Not even an eensy weensy text?
Yeah. He gotz ta go. Family vacations are times to spend with people who care about you and your well-being. Your chico doesn’t. Granted, I have no clue if he offered a response or if you even asked for one. So PERHAPS he has the greatest reason (short of getting shot or dying) as to why he couldn’t be there. Perhaps but if he did, he would have called and offered that explanation at the time.
Unless he was wrestling a honeybadger, in which he couldn’t because he was losing that battle since honeybadgers don’t care. Honeybadgers don’t give a *CENSORED*.
Either way, I say he’s out on the family trip. Hell, let me go with you. I’m SO in need of a vacation right about now and I promise to text you on your birthday to tell you why Im not coming. Honest!
