Yes, we went the first week of December. And I'll pay it because I posted a simplified version of the story. Come to find out that his "gave" us the points without asking the other person on his DVC contract (his half-sister, who I adore and went on the trip with us). She can't simply absorb the cost of the points and he hasn't even paid her for his half of the contract lately (another LONG story, but I'm helping her figure out a legal and nice way to approach that). So, while I technically "owe" him the money, I'll be paying her. Through PayPal. Because it's the right thing to do and I feel the obligation to her. She's been nothing but kind and I was the one who asked to make sure she'd been paid.Did you already go on this trip? If so, honest question...why are you paying him anything? If the agreement was that the points were a gift, and he didn't discuss a payment with you prior to the trip, I wouldn't give him one cent. If you are going to cut ties anyway, why do it after paying him? Cut ties now and give him nothing. If you haven't taken the trip yet and it's too late to rebook a hotel, I understand why you need to pay him.
Let's just say: she and I were both financially shafted. I have my portion to repay her. She has money (other than the DVC contract) that she loaned him. We are both hurt, but working with one another to move forward and away from him.
