Bridzilla's
« on: July 12, 2016, 10:30:31 AM »
Wife went to stagette this last weekend and lets just say over excess, self interest were abound. It started off good? So Bridesmaid (her sister) said she would plan it and surprise her. So the place she picked was Naramata BC for a wine tour, a great place to go. But the bride doesn't drink. The sister also picked the AirBnB, it had sleeping accommodations for 25 ppl but only 8 went. The bride found out where they were going about a week ahead and she decided that she wanted to go boating when they were their. So did they rent a boat? Nope. She made her fiance take there boat up. But in order to take the boat, he had to get 4 new tires, get trailer insurance, (the boat is in an ocean harbor all year) and then drive 10 hours round trip for her. Guess how long they spent on the boat? Just 2 freaking hours. How much did it cost? well the tires were "just" $900. I bet the whole boat thing cost $1500 or just $750 per hour of fun.

what a waste! And why on Earth would you plan a wine tour for someone who doesn't drink... that's just self centered!

On a forum about frugality, you should be more frugal with your apostrophes. We don't use them to indicate the presence of an s.
