So I finally booked my flights for my holiday to Dublin in May. Yay! We have tickets to see The Boss in concert. Oh yes! It was a huge ‘value-added’ bonus for my trip over there. I found a new website for cheap flights that allows you to choose your seats online for an extra $22 each. It was a pretty sweet deal. But I got so tied up in picking flights that would allow me to sit by the starboard side window seat that I completely forgot to make sure I picked a flight that got me there before the concert.
As soon as I realised it, I went online and tried to contact someone from the company to help me change the departing flight. Unfortunately, I didn’t read the part about how the ‘instant fare’ (the cheaper fare) is non-refundable, non-changeable, and just plain not good news for me. I had two concert dates to choose from: The Boss near the end of May, and xPrincex in the middle of June. Now I don’t get to see either with him.
I’m so upset about the whole thing… We were both really looking forward to going to either one of those concerts together. He bought tickets to both concerts specifically with me in mind… and I went and did something stupid. So stupid that if you didn’t know any better, you’d think I didn’t care about his thoughtful actions. So it hurts. My stupidity hurts. A lot. I just feel like I let him down.
I know I’m being dramatic, but I’ve actually had a few days to mull over this… and I still feel pretty strongly about it. I care about him a great deal and I would never want him to think that I don’t care about things he does for me. He is one of the sweetest guys I’ve ever known, and I am just careless. It’ll take me a while to get over this… and I’m sure it’ll take him a while to get over it too. I just wish there were some way I could make it up to him. Or better yet, I wish there were someway I could still go see xThe Bossx in concert with him! ARGH!
