    Right so my friend said he could get us all 50% off tickets of rugby tickets for this weeks game, leaping at the chance to save some money (being students lol) all 6 of my mates as well as myself asked for him to get us one as the prices would be £15 from £30. Earlier on however he said we all had to pay £43 each because the discount wasn't valid, and apparently he couldn't change the tickets when he rang customer service. Looking into it I found that he had got us tickets for the wrong stand as well.

    He is a friend of almost 6 years but putting that aside he did lie to us about the discount and also didn't consult with us before actually buying them. Now i'm left with very few options, either I go and just say we all make mistakes (rather big mistake i must say, £28 mistake!), go and just pay him the £30 which it would have been before, expecting him to pay the other £13 and finally not go all together.

    Situations like this are made even harder when friends are involved, what should I do??

    Do you value your friendship of nearly 6 years more than £28?

    Pay the money.
    Make sure he knows he should have consulted you first and you're (a little) miffed.
    He owes you a beer (or other beverage).
    Go to the rugby and enjoy time with your friends.
