Pissed off & just my luck

23 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Well, my financee is in Jamaica and we have not seen each other since the early part of January of this year . . he is having a difficult time and NEEDS to see me. I was trying to hold out (financially) til his interview letter and was hoping it would be around October. Thinking I can go down there and be with him for moral support during this process. Anyways, he wants to see me in between that time and there are some things I could do while I am visiting such as take more pictures, inquire about his shots (although he is working on them now, but I do feel like I need to put a fire under him)get passport size pic and whatever else I can do in relation to the direction of getting approved for his visa. Anyways, I check the airlines fares today and if I leave in two weeks (which I can't because of my job) the fare round trip is $342 including taxes but not including bags. I am pissed . . . why oh why . . . ?????

So Just your luck means you found a low fair and cant take it for your job does not allow???

I see this fair and see it is half the tax and fees of my RT fair.... :blink:

Going back to take on the photos and more evidence will help your case and more importantly allow more time spent with your loved one :luv: !!!

If you could manage I'd say go for it now and deal with your interview trip when that comes. Who knows but GOD what is in store for us tomorrow! No less in October...if it comes in October for you.

Good Luck with what comes through for you both!!! (F)

You need to plan ahead in terms of travel. Airfares are cheapest months before the date of travel so if you plan to fly you need to watch for specials weeks before you intend to leave.

Your fiance needs to cool his horses and only 'need to see you' if it is a health or death emergency. If he's adamant on you being there outside of emergencies/when you intend on vacationing then he can pay for your ticket. You have a job you need to maintain so you can't up and leave for a week for petty reasons. Not saying you shouldn't visit before the interview but your fiance needs to understand you don't live 10 mins away where you can just pop in when he wants. Careful planning is key or you will not have any money or job to come back to.

So why are you pissed again? Because you have to work or because of the flight? Its a really cheap flight, my flight to Colombia was just under $800 I would love to have a deal like that!! Anyways have patience, and your fiance needs to have that patience as well. Take it one day at a time you will be together soon!!!

Even if the flight to Nigeria is $500 I still won't go unless it's an emergency or as preplanned.

This is a long journey and you need to have and stick to a road map.

In regards to lighting a fire. I've had to work on my Fiancé on that too. I know things are not as easy as over here but she has had to be continuously asked to follow up on documents like BC and stuff.

Mr. Man just needs to be made to understand the importance of you being gainfully employed in this process.

His point is EVEN IF the cost is $500 to Nigeria he's still not just going to jump on a plane for 'no reason'.

You know what . . . when it was said that a reason was needed in order to go and planning is first and foremost. . .

I thought to myself seeing my man IS a reason. This is the man that I am going to marry and who I am jumping through these hoops for . . . to get him here (which as WE ALL KNOW is not easy especially dealing with a 3rd world country's procedures or lack thereof). So, I have and will . . .be looking for another fare (doing that now). And told my boss of this. I have not given him dates but said in the future . . . so the NEXT flight deal will be booked.
