My best friend is a millionaire. She is always inviting me and her other friends to birthday parties for herself and her kids. We have to fly or drive out of State for these functions. My annual house hold income is right at $150,000. Her friends incomes are less than half of mine. My question is Should she be responsible for paying for at least the transportation costs if she wants us to come to these events? Even though my family makes more than the average we have a mortgage, savings, bills etc. She mentioned she would pay for half my flight if I came to her birthday in September. Really? only half? I NEVER ask this friend for anything, but it really pisses me off when she selfishly asks her friends to inconvenience themselves to come hang out just because she wants to at our own expense.

If you are invited to an event - friend or not - there is never an expectation that transportation will be provided. I've never heard of that before. Honestly, I think you're using the money as an excuse because you aren't happy with how this person is treating you. Any friend worth their salt would understand not being able to attend an event because of your son's birthday. The scale of the event and the cost of airfare are irrelevant to that.
