OP gets an unexpected invitation from her rich college roommate, Meg, to join her on a family vacation. Although it feels awkward going away with Meg’s family, OP is grateful for the opportunity.

Once at the airport, OP finds out it’s not just Meg and her parents but also her three brothers and two of her father’s friends. OP starts feeling uncomfortable and out of place when she realizes she’s the only one who didn’t get a first-class ticket. She decides to swallow her discomfort and not argue over a free ticket.

The Cooking Dilemma

On the first night, OP learns that Meg’s family plans to cook at the resort kitchen during their stay. To her surprise, it turns out that OP and Meg are expected to do all the cooking due to Meg’s family’s traditional views on gender roles. This becomes a problem as OP can’t cook well, especially not for nine people.

The Culinary Disaster

OP tries her best to cook but screws up by undercooking the chicken and overcooking the steak. Meg’s dad gets angry at her for messing up the food. In response, OP retorts that if he knew better, he could help instead of just criticizing.

A Tense Confrontation

The Uncertain Departure

OP approaches the resort desk, explaining her sudden need for accommodation at the airport. Luckily, she finds an affordable room due to a weekday discount. This allows her to have her own space and still have money left for sightseeing and other activities and not need to rearrange her flights to leave immediately.

Solo Adventures

One reader said, “Meg is not your friend; she definitely knew the situation she was putting you in and didn’t think to give you a rundown before asking you to join.”

Another responder wrote: “That is literally insane. Who takes someone to another country and then just abandons them there?”

A different person states, “Meg’s family may have money, but they have no class.”
