Idagirl Posted June 19, 2017 Share Posted June 19, 2017 Not sure how to even start but going to simplify it as much as possible. I would like feedback from outsiders. Been planning a 4 day vacation for several months now.. saved money (even though I'm poor) to go.. The vacation happen to be in the same town my best friend lives in.. so you can imagine my excitement! The trip included my boyfriend of 2 yrs, his sister (which is my other best friend), and his male cousin that we shall call... Jelly (my phone auto-corrects his name to this and it seems fitting) I'd been tagging them on Facebook with all the different activities that were going to be going on in this city. Of course I didn't expect to get to all of these activities but maybe 1 or 2 in hopes to be able to meet up with my friend for a couple hours.. My travel companion's seemed excited to do these things and so the trip began! My boyfriend cousin, Jelly wanted to be the driver and we just needed to pitch in for gas. If we drove straight through without stopping it's a 8 hr drive, but I knew we were going to stop frequently.. First day... 12 hours of driving.. stopped at every landmark visited every historical site we could think of. Jelly is a very heavy overweight man and doesn't like to walk so the visit's were short lived and some we had to pay money to see...He would normally take a pic from his cell phone and immediately post on Facebook that he was there. We stopped in a town midway to our destination and booked a hotel. Ate dinner turned in early. 2nd day of vacation: 12 hrs of driving, lots and lots of driving. This day Jelly wouldn't stop at all.. he would just tell us to look out the window as we drove by these places... ok, let me stop to add that we drove 5 hrs out of our way to see this landmark and he wouldn't even stop to let us get out and see it.. 12 hrs later he drove 20 miles past the town my best friend lives in to book a hotel for 2 days. I said, all the fun activities are in the other town why are we staying here? Jellys response, " I'm not a partier so if you want me to drop you off that's fine with me".. i thought to myself..are you effing kidding me right now...I looked at my boyfriend and he didn't say a word.. I said, can we at least meet up with her for a few minutes so I can say hi and give her a hug? Jellys response... Eh, probably tomorrow. Ok, so I text my friend and said I'm sorry I'll meet with you tomorrow. So my thought process is... I'm not going to ditch my travel partners and boyfriend cause we are in this together... right?? Day 3: Jelly gets us up early and wants to go look at a lake... the name of the lake has the same name of the town friend lives in.. I said yes sweet then we'll head over to the car show meet up with my friend.. going to be a good day! So I'm a bit sleepy from waking up so early... I dozed off in the back seat.. I woke up and noticed we are on a interstate 50 miles away from the American boarder!!! OK what is going on... I close my eyes for which seemed like 5 minutes and we are almost to Canada???? Dear lord give me the strength to not freak out. I said, where are we going? My boyfriend turns and looks at me and said that lake jelly wants to see... I said, I thought we were seeing a lake close by and our plan was to go to spend the day doing these activities we all agreed on.... ya know what I got?!?! Silence from everyone! !! So we reached our destination (4 hrs later) and it included 50 miles of winding roads that eventually gave me extreme motion sickness! The worst part... we didnt the even STOP.. jelly wouldnt stop so we could look at this lake!!! We just drove by. OK I'm holding back tears.. sick, frustrated, angry, confused.. we just spent 24 hrs driving to spend another 8 hrs driving?! Boyfriend didn't ask how I was feeling with the car sickness at all... even though I mentioned it a few times. We got back to the town my best friend lives in... my boyfriend asked if I wanted to call her to meet up with us... OK 8 hrs later I call her... well she can't meet up now.. it's late and she's been drinking and doesn't dare drive.. naturally I didn't blame her.. my boyfriend and jelly said they could drop me off and I could find my own way back to the hotel... first of all... how? The stupid hotel is in a different town 20 miles away. Had I known we were taking a 8 hr road trip to a lake we couldn't even get out and look at then I wouldn't have went! I could have stayed behind and spent time with my friend... Day 4: departure day... yep you guessed it... jelly didn't want to walk 10 feet from his truck so we could have lunch on a dock with my friend that was waiting for us... we left... drove to the Canadian boarder so jelly could take a pic.... from his truck so he could post on FACEBOOK THAT HE WAS THERE.. 15 hr drive home.. I'm really upset, I felt like a little kid on vacation with my grandparents.. My boyfriend and jelly all knew how excited I was to see my friend. I wanted to meet her man. I resent my boyfriend for not sticking up for me... I don't even know if I should just get over it or be angry like I am.. I spent $500 on this trip and not once did I see my friend. Are my feelings justified? I expressed my disappointment to my boyfriend and he said he felt bad that i didnt see her but yet he didn't take my side at all the entire trip.. I want to slap jelly in his fat lazy face and now I'm looking at my boyfriend of 2 yrs very differently Link to comment
