Pull up your carpet squares. It’s story time.
Way back in March I was whining on FaceBook about how little I got to see at Epcot during our family trip. The next thing I knew 7 of my long-lost college girl friends wanted to join me for a girls’ trip to Epcot Food & Wine. Yay! I booked a room for myself. Four of my other friends booked rooms. 1 friend desperately wants to book a room, but will have to wait until the last minute because of her husband’s work. 1 friend proceeded to have a full-on mid-life crisis all over FaceBook. I’ve stopped sending her trip planning emails and hope that she’s forgotten about us. This story is not about any of those friends.
This story is about the 8th person in our little group. I think I’ll call her NHH for Needs Hand Holding. She doesn’t want to book her own room. She wants to have a roommate to save money. I agreed to let her room with me. She asked me if she could pay me in WDW gift cards she would get at Target using her Red Card. I said no. She’s asked if she can wait to pay me for her half until later. She doesn’t want park tickets for every day. I found her an Orbitz 25% off code and figured out a way for her to get the same room as the rest of us for a significant savings. Nope. She’d rather room with me because that option is $60 cheaper.
What do I do? I haven’t added her to my room yet. Should I get her to pay for her half before adding her? Should I back out and say I’d rather have my room to myself, thank you very much?
Do any of you have stories about sharing a room with a friend that would shed some light on this situation? Feel free to share!
