Are You Invited?

Last week, Julie got a last minute call from her friend Kim, inviting her to go to a concert with her that same night. According to Kim, she had an extra ticket and said she would love it if Julie could go with her. So, excited for a night of live music, Jules eagerly accepted the invitation… But when  Kim handed Julie her ticket, she casually mentioned all the extra TicketMaster charges, but told Julie she only needed to give her money for the listed price.

Jules was a bit taken aback.  Though she really didn’t have a problem paying her own way, when Kim used the word ‘invite’ she had assumed the concert was her friend’s treat…

Was Julie right to assume that Kim’s last minute invitation meant she was picking up the tab for the tickets, or was it wrong for Jules to assume that an invitation always implies that the bill will be been taken care of?  Should Kim have been more clear upfront about her intention, or should she have never asked for money for the ticket in the first place?  Tell us what you think!

    Her friend should have let her know up front what it would cost…

    and…she should have asked before she accepted. When you don’t communicate there are always misunderstandings.

    I think that Kim should have mentioned that Julie would have to pay for the ticket. And Julie. should have also asked if she needed to pay for the ticket. Both parties should never assume.

Any Thoughts?
