Of course I could have put my big boy pants on and said something too, but I didn't, so that's on me. The food....I wish you hadn't brought that up cause we split that 3 ways too at the store and I didn't think of that!
Umm...you say he's a "good guy and not the screw you over" type, but that's exactly what he did to you! How do you think he'd reply if you said "Why don't you and the other couple just pay my way for the room and food? It's just a rounding error in your totals compared to you, your wife, and the kids!". He would probably accuse you of not paying your own way - but they surely didn't pay for their own kids ways!
Hell...if that's the case, for the next trip, bring along 5 of your closest ER Forum friends to tag along, so our expenses can be borne by the other 2 families, and we'll reimburse you behind the scenes.
