Feeling Left Out and Facing a Tough Choice

Our protagonist finds himself in a difficult situation, feeling excluded from his friend's wedding and now facing an awkward friends' trip that's morphing into a groomsman getaway. He's honest with his friends about not wanting to be the only non-groomsman on the trip, but it's clear they're not happy about it. Is he being unreasonable or just trying to protect himself from feeling even more left out? Let's see what the internet thinks of this predicament... 🤔
