Today, I was invited to a fancy-shmancy charity event, and the host - my friend - told me to wear a long, ballroom, fancy gown. Turns out my friend was just being a dick and it was a pool party. I spent $200 on my hair and makeup alone. FML

Ouch! I'm sorry Hun that's gotta suck. Personally I'd ask him to pay you back for the money he cost you on his little "joke". Although I bet you looked absolutely gorgeous!

#12 I agree and disagree.
if she spent $200 on hair and makeup then I'm wondering how much she spent on the dress? I'd ask the friend to help pay at least half since the money never would've been spent had they not decided to play an expensive prank.
however OP should not have spent money on something she could not afford.

the only real reason I'm torn is because some people like myself will treat themselves to something expensive (like going on my first vacation ever next May) so I save up for it and make certain sacrifices so that I can see my wish come to life. so if it was the same for OP then I would have been extremely hurt by my friend for have done that. and I'd ask for some compensation since they wasted my time and money for a quick laugh.

$200 is a bit excessive for just hair and makeup for one night.. I don't think the friend owes OP anything. It was a dick move, but the friend didn't know OP was going to go out and spent hundreds.

I actually went to a Taco Bell recently completely shit hammered after a charity event. I was wearing a TUX. My friend and I pretended to be on a super fancy date.
