The girl was going to the wedding of her best friend and agreed to be a bridesmaid.
Lauren planned to have a good time. But already during the preparation of the event, she suddenly realized that she was constantly spending money on the needs of her friend.
At the last moment, she completely refused to go to the celebration. And Lauren can be understood: her friend demanded that she also pay for the entrance.
Traditionally, the bridesmaid in North America does take on some token part of the expenses. Buying a small bracelet for the bride, or paying for a bar for a few friends. This way, respect and love are simply demonstrated.
But in the situation with Lauren, everything was completely different.
The bride turned out to be a real manipulator. Lauren herself did not notice how she paid for the dress and accessories, took part in the design of the festive tables, paid in full for makeup and hair.
The evening before the wedding, Lauren calculated the expenses and was very upset. In total, she spent about 4 thousand dollars. And it wasn’t even her wedding!
About half an hour later, the bride herself came to visit her and said that her family had decided to take money for entering the event. Lauren would also have to pay.
This was already the last straw. At that very moment, Lauren decided not only not to come to her friend’s wedding, but also to stop communicating with her altogether.
It’s funny that the bride herself did not seem to fully understand how she offended her friend. The level of empathy in people can be extremely low.
