So after putting in a reasonable amount of effort to pay just face value for tickets for Taylor's Sacramento show and being completely unsuccessful, I had happily given up on the whole idea of getting DD12 tickets. My wallet was also very happy.

Of course, then DD gets a phone call last night from a friend - the friend's Mom had agreed to take them to the show if they all paid for their own tickets which would have to be bought from Stubhub at double or tripple the face value. And of course DD came running to me to see if I would pay. I told her "No way. If you think this is a good use of your money, YOU buy the ticket. I will allow you to go to the show, but getting the ticket is your problem." And of course she's broke! After a bit more discussion, I told DD that if she really wanted to go, even though I didn't think it was worth the money, I'd give her the $200 I budget for her birthday (present/party/dinner out/etc.) to her early and she could use it to buy the ticket but anything over $200 was back in her court to figure out how to pay. And it would mean her birthday will consist of her, me and a cupcake at our dining room table After a bit more debating, she finally decided she'd take the deal. So I guess she's going after all. And I get off easy on her birthday!
