So we went to 2 baseball games in 2 nights. The first night my dad gave up his ticket and let my friend go with me. The ticket is worth 40 bucks and he got a bobble head which is worth 50 bucks. The next night my friend got tickets. He got 3 tickets and gave 2 of them to me. Each ticket was worth 12 bucks. The reason why he gave me 2 tickets is because he was going to be late to the game and they were giving out scarfs. So he wanted me to get 2 scarfs, 1 for me, 1 for him, so I went early to get them. I printed out the tickets and went on over to the game. His dad and brother couldn't make the game, so that's why he had an extra ticket. But that extra ticket was not to be used, it was just to save him a scarf.
So anyways, after the game we started walking to our cars. We each said goodbye and then a moment later he comes running to me and says ''Wait! Aren't you going to buy the ticket from me? I asked him, ''What do you mean? I have to pay?'' And he said, ''I spent 36 bucks, I gave you two tickets, that's 24 bucks I spent on you, aren't you going to at least offer to buy one of the tickets? I had to spend an extra 12 bucks.'' I was a little bit confused. I replied, ''Well what about yesterday? You got great seats worth 40 bucks, you got a free bobble head.'' And he replied, ''But that was from your dad. I still want money from you.'' I stood there confused and told him I'd give him my scarf once I washed it and he said okay. Then he texted me this morning and said he was offended that I didn't make him an offer as far as money. Do I owe this guy? Now before you answer, keep in mind that he has owed me hundreds and hundreds of dollars before and we've got into confrontations over money and he has always made an excuse to not pay me back. He says he's tight, he says my family has money and I should be easier on him. But now I almost feel really guilty. And since this incident, he has not contacted me. Did I do anything wrong? I asked my dad if I owed the guy and he got really really pissed and said that my friend should give him 35 bucks for those tickets which he gave up. What do you guys think? Do I owe the guy? And is it my fault that he bought an extra ticket?
I would have paid if I knew ahead of time that I was just going to the game with him. I thought he was just returning the favor? Or maybe I wouldn't have went if I knew he was going to charge. I'm confused. So should I tell hiim to pay my father back and then pay him for my ticket? Because obviously he's not going to pay my father. To me, that would be more fair. But it almost seemed like he was trying to pull a fast one. I mean he never mentioned anything, and then sprinted over to me like a street bum. It was really awkward.
