Bunney Posted August 7, 2017 Share Posted August 7, 2017 Right, my boyfriend and I have been living with another couple for the past 10 months now (our roommates girlfriend doesn't officially live here - she's just always there). This past Friday, my boyfriend and I were supposed to take a 'dolphin tour' which is a specific boat tour at a beach about 1h30min away from our hometown. He surprised me with the tickets on the day of our 1 year anniversary by giving me self-made/self-drawn "vouchers" train ride, ferry ride (to get to that specific beach) and the dolphin tour. His roommate knew all about it all along because he saw my boyfriend make these "vouchers" for me. So Friday came & we went all the way with the train (1h), the ferry (30min) and when we finally arrived at the island where the dolphin tour takes place... He realized that we took the wrong ferry & thus were at the wrong side of the island - and since the tour was already about to start, there was no way of getting there in time (no taxis etc.). Also, these tours only take place twice a day and we had the later one. Needless to say my bf was very upset as the whole thing had taken him a lot of planning & was mad at himself for not checking where the ferry arrived beforehand (he assumed there was only one port). It was awful, he was on the verge of tears as he had really wanted to take me on that tour (as I had talked a few times about it in the past and how much I'd like to see the dolphins). There was no cheering him up that day When we got home later that day, totally tired and exhausted, I told our roommate about it (bc he asked how it was) and he showed a lot of empathy to the situation. Today (3 days later) my bf and I are sitting on the couch watching GoT and our roommates get home. They look at us with this playful "shameful" look like they had something to confess and we were like "what? what have you guys been up to?" and yep you guessed it, they took that exact dolphin tour today - lol. I didn't say anything at the time and just listened to them going on about how great it was - but after they had left the room I did start to feel annoyed. Am I being petty? I really would like to hear how other people in that situation would react. I mean, obviously I am not going to say anything to either of them but inside I do feel like "are you freaking kidding me? Get your own ideas " lol. Mind you, they are NOT the outdoor kind of couple and rarely ever do anything together (the last time must have been end of June where they went to the movies); actually they have one of the most dysfuncional relationships I've witnessed; he has broken up with her twice in the last 3 months, are always arguing etc. So maybe since I am harboring some resentment toward both of them (for several reasons) I am being more annoyed at this situation than I usually would be. Btw we are in our mid-twenties (me and the girlfriend), bf is 31 and roommate is 35. What do you think? Link to comment
