Ok, so my friend and I were planning to take a trip to Europe next summer. He is doing his second semester in Prague and I was going to fly out and meet him there afterword. Now, he personally invited me to go backpacking with him, but last night he calls me over out of the blue and takes back his invitation, saying he'd rather go by himself. I'm really pissed off about this, but some people are like "well I can see why he'd want to go alone", but thats not even the point, this kid who I've been best friends with for 10 years who invited me to go to Europe with him just basically said "actually, I want to go myself you go do whatever." I don't really know how I should go about this. I want to call him out for being an indian giving prick, but like I don't know thats not really my personality to just go around calling kids out. But I really feel like I need to say something to him.

No man I don't think you do have a right really, it was his invitation to give and his to retract. Sorry I can see why you WOULD be pissed but I can also see that if you're asking SHOULD you be, the answer's no.

I can see why you're angry about it, and you do have a right to be upset, but you have to respect that he would rather go by himself. It's probably nothing to do with you, he would just rather experience it alone. Try not to get too wound up, and see if you can't organise another trip at some point.

The power to feel with others give.

In a sense you could be mad, but don't.
Well at least don't call him out. Won't lead to anything good.

I can see why your angry but it is his business whether he asks you to come or not. If he takes back that invitation, I can imagine I would be a little angry but if he wants to go by himself, just politely ask him why he choose to venture out on his own. Maybe he has a very decent reason?
#9
What he did was actually completely self centred and idiotic, yes it was his invitation and he had a right to do what he did, but it's not really the done thing to use that power. Bit harsh to be honest, I'd be annoyed. Just kick him.

Honestly dude, thats exactly what I've been saying. But this kid has always been predominantly concerned with how something affects him, hes a very selfish kid, this isn't the first time either.

If it makes you feel better I don't REALLY have anyone I can go travelling with apart from family (which is fine imho), but people are tied up with University, or really really can't be trusted or are plain weird.

Fly out there anyway. If he tells you he said he wanted to go alone, say you must have been drunk and cant remember th ephone call. If he doesnt then offer to let you come, kick his ass

I disagree, once you offer someone an invitation, it's, at best, very rude to retract it without reason. TS has every right to be pissed, his friend's a dick.

Well its obvious he has some personality issues and you can either try and resolve them or leave him alone from now on. Don't fall out with him and insult him, just ignore him politely, as if your moving on in life and he's not going to be a part of it anymore.

sucks, but at the same time at least he's givin you some decent notice

In general, if you have to ask yourself "Do I have a right to be pissed about this?" then most of the time you don't...

Uhm, did he say why? Because everything depends on whatever reason, but hell, I'd be mad about it.

Thats not the point... the point is that he DID invite me, and then retracted the offer after like a month of us talking about all the stuff we were going to be doing... you don't see something wrong with that?

Call him up and ask him why he wants to go alone, then if says he just wants to. Well, say something mean. He shouldn't of asked you in the first place. Especially if the reason is "just because"

I'm sure there will be other chances to go to Europe though.

Wow, I'm guessing you don't have many friends...

It's not about whether his friend should have to bring him, it's about whether his friend should invite him, then retract his offer for no reason at all.

I'm not getting pissy with you at all, but if he shouldn't have to bring me, he shouldn't have invited me. I don't know about you, but where I come from, if you invite someone somewhere, and then take back the invitation, that's not acceptable. Especially something like backpacking through Europe. I'm not rich, I don't have the money to just go to Europe whenever I want. My parents are willing to by a plane ticket for me next summer because I'll be 20 and they want me to experience Europe at least once, who knows when I'll get to do something like that again?

Why dont you talk to your mate?

He probably has a credible reason and if not what can you do?
