Considering the fact that the OP didn't already ask for those days off before purchasing the tickets, I would've had a back-up plan too. Those tickets probably weren't cheap, and if you don't want them to cost even more you have to go the non-refundable route. Yea it sucks that he's going with someone else, but it doesn't automatically mean he's taking some other girl. Now if he is, then yea he's a douche.
I think the key detail is that the trip was planned before OP found out about vacation time. There are two plausible explanations: 1) this was the boyfriend's trip which he planned and paid for, and THEN invited the OP. If this is the case, it's his trip and his right to take a friend instead. Or 2) OP and her boyfriend planned this trip together, and OP agreed to book the trip before she asked about vacation time, which is not a smart move. Either way, I vote YDI.
Yep first disagreement. They should break up. No wonder there are so many divorces. People actually think they deserve to be happy all the time, and an opposite in a relationship should never disappoint. :/ get your shit straight. Not bringin you to Mexico isn't the end o the world. Unless it's with another girl. In which case he's an asshole and you should still talk about it first.
Well given that my country has, according to a lot of list( even a UN list) a lot of the best beaches in the world i think it's worth it, and i'm just ignoring the fact that we have one of the ritchest cultures in the world, one of the biggest cities in the world with museums that rival yours( our anthropology museum is ranked higher than NY's) , real mexican food is ranked as the second best food in the world and the fact that the legal age drinking age is 18. No you're right it isn't worth it... Because according to people like you, mexico is a drug-filled desert.
You're not missing out on much :) He sounds like a douche and I didn't have much to do in Mexico while on vacation there.
Well people in the US hate as well when people talk shit about their country, so do i. I hate how the world media portraits mexico. They portrait it as hell on earth, where water is dirty, the government is runned by "narcoterrorists". Some US officials even say that the mexican cartels have businnes with al qaeda, which isn't true. They blame mexico for the drug problem when our government is trying to kill what the drug market in the US created. They also make people believe that the mexican cartels are to blame on everything, even though very strong organizations in the US are the ones that sell it there. So i hope you understand why mexicans get angry when we hear or read that stuff.
