I need advice....

I need advice on a certain situation.

Kawaii-Kon 2006 is coming up this Easter weekend, and I bought 2 tickets for myself and my best friend Ricola (for privacy purposes, that's her name). We both LOVE anime..... yeah.
But recently, Ricola's mom told her that she can't go out, because her mom thought that Ricola lied. She didn't, but it's a mother's word. Can't really go against it.

Now, I don't know if she can go, and neither does Ricola. She's sucking up to her mom and begging her and all that stuff, but it's still a "Maybe." or a "We'll see"
Well, "we'll see" isn't exactly something that can wait. I kinda need to know soon, because the tickets are registered to our names.

What should I do?
I want Ricola to come, but if she can't come, should I give her ticket away?
But I don't want to hurt her feelings by giving the ticket away.... TT_TT
What should i DO.......?

hmmm...maybe both you and your friend could sit down and discuss the situation with her mother. Instead of begging, probably reason with her. That what I think you could do. Someone else may have a better idea than me.

If you give the ticket away, the friend will understand but she couldnt help but to feel "replaceable" on the inside. It is human nature no matter how nice and unselfish one is.

You must do what you feel is right, but IMO don't give the ticket out to someone else. If anything, that'll make her appreciate you more and feel that your friendship is more that that convention.

I can't really see any way forward unless you tell this dilemma to your friend. That's all I'm gonna say on the matter.

hmm...tough call...this is what i would do if i were you....the three of us talk about it and try to compromise...then if it's a no, then i don't go either even though I know I'd probably be a bit pissed, but atleast she'll know that I'm a true friend...so either sell the tickets or give them to some other people that want to go...but again this is just me....^^;

I would still go, This has happened to me before with a concert. Tell her though if she can't go that you will give her ticket away, but tell the person that they will only get to go if she can't. I once said that I wasn't going to a concert becuase my friend couldn't go and she got pissed at me because she felt that she had ruined my plans by being unable to go with me. basically your friend would feel responsible and may feel bad if you dont go. Talk it over with her

I say don't beg PROVE that the lie is not real don't be harsh and yell but you have to show that this is important to you and your friend. I kinda like kiba_is_mine's idea.

Tell her mom you paid with it with your own damn money, and it's registered under her name. Except say it politely o_o Well that'd work for my mom, my mom will feel bad if she realizes she's wasting someone else's money. Or talk to her mom about the issue o.o have a sit down er w/e

scan the ticket at kinko's.jk

You could think of someone else in case she can't come, but tell her your in a tough situation.....but if she keeps begging her mom well enough.......

You need to take a guess if she's going to be able to make it or not....

Actually, she's already grounded.
I'm not allowed to drive because of my epilepsy, and who's gonna take her?
It's not like she can sneak out and walk a 2-hour drive to the hotel.
And I've stepped up to my mom before. She threw away all my manga and broke my precious computer. She kicked it. O_o;; Then she said I was grounded, and didn't give me dinner.
And her mom is even scarier than mines. TT__TT

Thanks for the advice, everyone. Although I've already talked it over with her time and time again, I guess it's all up to her mom, ne?
