Argh! I just have to get this off my chest. Has anyone ever gone through the process of hiring a limo for the school prom, or any occasion for that matter, only to have people pull out at the last minute? I spent ages sorting this out for the very special occasion of my daughter's School Prom, which is this Friday (only two days away).
Last night, knowing the limo was booked I had one lad say he was going with someone else, because they were cheaper! The other lad said he knew of a cheaper limo hire company. This has happened THREE DAYS before the School Prom and of course the deposit would be lost if we cancelled, so it was pointless trying to re-book last minute with another company.
I spoke to one of the lads and his mother at the weekend and neither of them told me at the time they weren't happy with the booking I'd made.
Thinking I could speak to the mother and reason with her I pointed out that the deposit for the limousine had been paid, but my pleas fell on deaf ears. How could they not understand how stupid, selfish and downright unreasonable they are being?
In short, they promised to discuss further and call me back last night, but of course they didn't. They just wanted out and hadn't the decency to tell me the truth and I'm the one left stressing and trying to find the balance, to cover their share of the limo hire. I haven't had chance to tell them exactly what I think of them but I am absolutely livid and going crazy!
This was all kicking off when my daughter is in the middle of her GCSEs and was trying to revise last night. She was so upset that these boys let her down, she could barely concentrate. Why are there such stupid, selfish, thoughtless, ignorant people on this planet? They may have saved themselves a few bob, but they've alienated a lot of people and lost friends, as the other boys and the girls who are still going in the limo are angry too.
Maybe this seems a ridiculous rant, but I cannot believe that there are parents out there who act like this. Your support appreciated! Many thanks.
