tell em thebillfrom the credit card came and you have to pay it otherwise you may have to sell the tickets


Ya I would say they you have to pay your cc bill and you need the money. My friend still owes me like 120 for further fest in angles camp. I just can't get balls to say anything. Some people forget and just think they can wait til the show. I wouldn't take it the wrong way


I would say thats no friend 23at.... you have 4 choices depending how long you've know this person & if you want to continue your friendship.
1. Do nothing (this is not gonna get your money back but at least you know not to "buy" any tickets for the "friend" anymore.
2. Call him and tell him I've waited long enough I want my MF money!!! ( and you would be 100% in the right but your friendship will be over if he refuses to pay..then you are only out the 120 and you know this guy is no friend and a loser.
3. Call him say hey man its been x amt of time I really need my cash back can you pay me now? If he says yes great problem solved all is good...if he says no tell em you'll take $20 bucks a week as a sign of good faith..and see what he says. If he says I can't game over/friendship over..
4. Go to his door knock wait for him to come to the door. Politely tell him you need your money...and if he doesn't fork it
over.. go Tony Montana on em ... well thats a lil harsh... how about a lil Cassius Clay on his ass!!!

Personally at different points in my life I woulda done em all. In retrospect, number 3 is the correct answer IMHO good luck

What is the proper etiquette for buying a bunch of tickets for others with your cash and waiting for reimbursement? In my touring days in mid to late 80's we usually had the pitch in at time of sale unless we had to cover a friend. Now since I am 20 years older and tighter with my earned cash I am not as flexible. I bought 4 extra tickets for 4 people for 4 of the shows I am going to and havent seen a dime yet. Am I just getting grumpy in my old age or should i tell them to get the cash up!!!!



I guess the question to you is DO YOU TRUST THESE PEOPLE OR NOT? Even if they dont go you can trade sell them. If the money is a problem then it was at the start and you brought that on yourself. If they are trying to use you then you gotta cut them off cause they are not friends. Thats the only people i would consider buying a ticket in advance for.


All people are well employed friends. Not great friends but friends none the less. The question is not so much about trust but the time frame of paying for them. If someone bought tickets for me, I would pay them immediately.


I guess i dont have all the info to advise you like was there a timeline establised? If not you cant hang your expectations on someone else you will only be let down.

Try this approach with your 'friends':

Maybe chase off is the wrong term for the moment. But think back to the occupy wall street thread. And here too you do the same thing by putting down a man without even knowing him. I be sublime He was offering advice to the current thread and you couldnt even do that. just want to pick on the people who are not as rich as you. Just hope you enjoy yours cause you cant take it with you.
