If you were put in a situation like this, how would you handle it?
You and your best friend made New Year's Eve plans months ago, which was a huge relief to you since there's always so much hype around that night. You each bought tickets to an all-inclusive party, and since most of your friends are coupled up, she's essentially your date.
When your friend calls you asking if you have time to talk, you can tell in her voice that something's wrong. She tells you that her best guy friend from college was asked to attend an incentive trip for his company and was invited to bring a plus one — her. The vacation overlaps with your New Year's plans, but she said it was too good of an opportunity to pass up. She's very apologetic, but she's left you in the lurch; you're going to be the only single one in your group. You're angry, but you don't want to hold a grudge, so how would you handle this?
