How rude!

My friend came to my daughter's birthday party at the local roller skating rink.  She does not have a lot of money so she wasn't going to skate.  So she say me on skates and was telling me that she hasn't been on skates since high school, blah, blah, blah.  So I offered to pay for her skate rental.  She was so excited and went to get her skates.  She put them on and skated in a small circle then told me that she was done skating because she felt like she was going to fall.  She also said that she only wanted to be able to say that she got up on skates again after all these years.

Now I know that the rental fee was not that much but I just thought it was rude to only skate for 30 seconds.  Am I over reacting?

I can't believe she would let you pay... pretty tacky, if you ask me.

You paid the same whether she skated for 30 seconds or 30 hours.  Yes you are over reacting.  If you didn't believe in the GESTURE, you shouldn't have offered.

Ok Stephanie tanner...

Yes that was rude... You couldn't have gotten a refund since it was used in such a short time?
