Personal Issue

I don't normally talk about such details, but due to my extremely stressed out situation and only having like 2 days off in the past 50 days, well my thinking can't be trusted on such little issues cause i am bound to overreact more than usual

So here it is:

I am a UT grad from Louisiana, so the UT/LSU game has been circled as a to go to game since the last time they played in knoxville like 5 years ago. I was able to find tickets through my gf's dad because he didn't want to go and his wife couldn't find anyone to go with her. They weren't even going to purchase them until I asked for them. Well they got the tickets but no exchange of money happened and the tickets never exchanged hands because they just picked them up last week. Well I knew I might not be able to go because of work, so I told my sister (huge LSU fan and born and raised in louisiana and has never seen LSU in person) I would give them to her as a christmas gift if I couldn't go. Well my girlfriend decided since it was their tickets she wasn't going to give them to me if I couldn't go even though I asked for them and her and her mom were going to use them (they have no interest in the tickets, neither from louisiana and barely like football.) So my tickets have now been taken completely away from me as of right now. Should I be mad? What's your opinion?

I am a little confused by the whole thing...

did you tell your gf you would buy the tickets from her and her mom? Are ya'll getting along right now or is she just trying to be a b**ch?

I would say that if they arent going to use them and they will go to waste then yes, be mad...but if they actually plan on using them then I wouldnt be too upset...

not being a sportsfan i dont know about this, but could you get your sis tickets to another game maybe, or to this one, just different seats?

Weirdness. I dunno if it's worth being angry about, but I would think your own girlfriend would at least discuss it with you before just not getting the tickets for you. At the same time, if she had no knowledge of you offering them to your sister, you can't really be mad at her.

I'd discuss it with her further, and just mention, "Hey, I know you and your mom don't really even care about this game, and it would mean a lot to my sister to be able to go, since she's never been to an LSU game.... I really wanted to give them to her as a Christmas gift...." Putting it like that, I think your girlfriend would happily give them up.

with both ladies. If the tickets aren't going to be used and she won't let you have them I'd be pissed. If they just decided that they wanted to use them themselves that's a different issue and you might want to try talking it over with your gf and just letting her know about your agreement with your sister. As in most cases cooler heads prevail, don't get pissed unless you know for certain that your gf is just being a malicious beotch (which is almost never the case in any kind of decent relationship).

So does this mean you're not going to be able to go either?

They're not your tickets. If you had paid for them...different story.

Now, even though no one would have the tickets without your getting involved...your gf is making decisions about them...and it doesn't include you or your input... I would be re-evaluating the future with this gf...

But still be a little pissed.

The tickets are going to be used by either party. She knew of the deal I worked out with my sister, but she is a band geek and wants to see the band. I offered to take her to the UT/Kentucky game at the end of the season, but she said she wanted to go to this one with her mom.

it almost sounds like she is just trying to be difficult honestly...if she just wants to see the band, what does it matter which band it is...tell her you will get her and her mom tickets to the other game if you can have those for your sister...other than that...i dunno

in the future, you should not tell anyone about anything until you are sure it is going to happen. then no one gets disappointed. i'd probably be upset at the girlfriend, but her parents did get the tickets so i think they have the claim to them, regardless of the arrangement. this is a sticky situation...good luck with it.

Well they told the people they buy from they weren't interested in the tickets. I found out I could get them and told them to get them for me. Which they did. Now they are renegging on the deal. No monetary or ticket exchange, I am up s**t creek without a paddle. I am just trying to figure out how mad I should get about it.

Getting mad won't do anything, you need to ride your bike more and gf less...

Wish I could do either right now. I am too tired from work to even scratch myself much less ride anything. Plus I now have a cold. Man, this outage has been so much fun.

If this is your biggest problem in life right now......wow, you got it easy. ITs a football game. Seriously, not a big deal. No if the b!&#h did that with some world series tickets, we may have a problem. Till then, don't cry over spilled milk.
