same old independent behavior. Sorry this is happening to you, CWMI. frown

As a person who fights with my own tendency towards IB, I recognize the tactic he used to get his own way:

He called me and said he might *have* to go and if he did, would I be interested in going with him? I said if you HAVE to be there, okay. So then he ran to his boss and told him that he'd volunteer to be their guy for it. What part of *have to* is that??? He said he talked to me about it and I agreed!
