Ok so my boss is retiring. She said she doesnt want anything big, and has said that for years.
Our office has insider politics though, so it ends up she is having a retirement luncheon and its at like one of the PRICEIST places in the whole city.
They said its 26.40 for lunch (plus soda) so it will be like 30.00 per person. :eek: :eek: :eek:
Now, this year is tight for us. We are getting our credit card debt down, we are saving really good for Christmas, I’ve already made a ton of presents.
Now, why would I spend 30.00 on a lunch for me, when thats how much I plan to spend on my parents for all of Christmas!!! Yikes.
I feel obligated because if I dont go - it will be noticed.
So I thought I would say I have an appointment (that wouldnt be a lie hehe I could meet my husband and daughter!!!) haha!
What do you guys think - is this totally unreasonable - or should I just suck it up and go?
