Your friend says she'd love to take you to dinner on your birthday anywhere you want...
And you decide upon Indian food. Then she says, "I don't know, my bf may not want to do that. You know he's a picky eater."
Do I say, "It's not your bf's birthday" or make another restaurant choice? I'm a bit annoyed.
If it were me, I'd laugh at her and say: "So by anywhere I want, you really mean anywhere I want that your bf would like too?"
"Then he can stay home! It's my birthday, not his"
You can do exactly as r2 says or come up with other ideas and then see if they get veto'd too.
I love Indian, but if it were my birthday, I probably wouldn't suggest it.
Especially if you're hitting the bars after...
"Oh, did I invite your boyfriend?"
What a bitch. I hate it when people do this shit.
Someone will take you anywhere you want to go, and you choose [italic]Indian food[/italic]? Your friend needs a new friend.
This sounds like my horrible family. If it isn't a chain restaurant that serves microwaved crap and offers an over-priced chicken caesar salad for my fussy 40-year-old (not four, forty) sister-in-law, it doesn't exist. My unnecessary, unwanted gift once was a birthday dinner at Chilis... motherfucking Chilis! My favorite food on earth is Burmese tea leaf salad, which they all know about (and refuse to try), and yet they took me to Chilis -- possibly the worst chain restaurant in existence -- and expected me to be thrilled. Jesus.
Well, will the Bf fuck you?
Shutup, R6. I love Indian, haven't had it in a few years and it's more reasonable. None of us are wealthy. So since I haven't said it to her, I'll say it to you, "It's MY birthday."
Oh shaddup and stick to your p b and j with the crusts cut off, R6
What a tasteless fuck. Father was the same way.
Yes, R10, because those are the only two choices in life, Indian food or PB&J.
You thought you were going to be a cunt, but only came off as a moron. Poor you.
Why do women have to do EVERYTHING with their boyfriends or husbands?
OP, offer him a 3-way if he lets you decide the restaurant.
I wouldn't take you anywhere op, you fucking rigid little bitch. Get a pizza and sit home by yourself.
Why does the boyfriend have to come? It's YOUR birthday.
Under no circumstances should you go out with these people on your birthday. You will end up doing THEM a favor on YOUR birthday and you won't feel good about it.
Tell them thanks anyway, but you've decided to make other plans for your birthday.
1) Pick whatever restaurant you like.
2) Her BF can decide IF he wants to come OR NOT.
It's not that difficult.
Women need to grow a fucking spine, and their boyfriends need to grow up and learn eat-habits that are fitting of grown men, not 4 year olds.
She's not really your friend, is she?
Because friends don't act like that.
Ask her if you get to choose the menu for his birthday.
[quote]If it were me, I'd laugh at her and say: "So by anywhere I want, you really mean anywhere I want that your bf would like too?"
I would have said just as R1 suggests, but added "Maybe another time, then, but I'll sit this one out and you two can do as you please."
OP hadn't had Indian "in a few years"? Where doses she live, inside the arctic circle?
