Today Sarah joined us live on the air to discuss her OPP.
Her husband’s cousin is getting married this June and she called to ask them if their 3 year old would be the ring bearer. Right out of the bat Slacker said it’s her own fault for having cute kids, but let’s get back to the problem… They would love to have him be the ring bearer, but his cousin is getting married in the Hamptons. They would have to fly to New York, rent a car, and find a place to stay in Hamptons… in June… She is a stay at home mom and their lives are very comfortable, but they just finished paying off their debt and this would put a damper on things. Plus, it’s not a child friendly affair, so after the wedding, he will have to go to a babysitter for the reception and what not. They could just suck it up and go, but she also thinks they could just talk to his Uncle that has a ton of money, but she doesn’t want to seem like she’s begging.
What do you think she should do? Do you have any advice?
I’m one of those people that hates giving up my money, but for any trip to somewhere I haven’t been, I think it would be worth the while. I think they should suck it up and go. Life is way to short not to. It sounds like they can afford it, especially if they paid off their debt, but at the same time, paying off all of your debt is such a huge accomplishment. You are finally on the up rise. Ugh, I don’t know anymore…
