I don't know if others every have doh! moments but I do occasionally. I've had a lot of them lately. The most recent one was that I bought 4 tickets awhile ago to the Lion King. Thought the kids and DH would want to go. They didn't want to it turns out and I am stuck with 4 tickets. Things have come up and tickets you buy months in advance well when you have other activities don't seem so desirable like a week before. It happens!
Anyway I start to panic. I am freaking out going wow I'm out $300. And also I want to see the lion king, but that's just a bonus. So I text a bunch of friends and everyone says no. So I post it on Stubhub and ticpick. Then it gets bought immediately on stubhub. I log in after 5 hours and realize all four tickets have sold. Yay right?
Boo - nooo. During that time I had a friend respond they'll take two and i say yes. They venmo me and I transfer the tickets. But I forget to take down the ad at stubhub and ticpick. Then I have another friend say yes she'll go WITH me. So I'm like YAY! I get to go win win.
But I had forgotten to take down my ad which wouldn't have mattered since the tickets sold immediately anyway. But still. I had panicked and listed the tickets even though I should have waited and let everyone I ask respond. So then I had to pay fees to stubhub and ticpicks for listing the tickets but not selling them. Boo!!! 🤦♀️
I could have explained to my friends the situation, but I was embarrassed and didn't want to. So I decided it was my own personal stupid tax and I would suck it up and just live with it. How much did it cost me?
Well $40 for ticpicks to replace the tickets and $166.50 for stubhub. So I guess like $206.50. Now my goal is to raise money outside of normal means to pay for my stupidity.
Life is like that sometimes.
