I have to rant here about this.
My friend is getting married in July to a girl that none of us can stand. She's trailor trash and bottom scum (I have all the stories and proof but thats for a different day), so I'm already not thrilled about this wedding.
I'm slated to be the best man and my other friend is another groomsman. Well, her daddy is loaded, the man has money coming out of places that a good Christian can't say. Well this old bastard thats paying for the whole wedding isn't paying for the best man or grooms men to find their way to the wedding (something I was under the belief was tradition when you're loaded)...Here comes the problem.
As yall can see, I live in Florida...the wedding is in New York City...over July 4th weekend. I did some number crunching and for me and my girlfriend to get up there for 4 days and back (plane, hotel, transportation, food, etc) will cost me over $2000...plus as the Best Man I'm expected to pick up the tab on the bachelor party...which he "expects" to be a fishing charter which will cost an additional $600 or so.
The only damn redeeming factor was I've never been to NYC and thought it would be cool seeing July 4th in the City...Well, the wedding is on July 5th and the rehearsal dinner is the night before..yup, July 4th...Fuck this Wedding...I'm proposing to my g/f as my best man speech just to steal their spot light....but shit thats another couple K for an engagement ring.
