But when one friend, a single dad, decided to bring his daughter along, the trip took a drastic turn. Now, they're planning another trip and the question is - should it be adults-only? 🎲🍻👧

A Vegas Trip, A Child, and a Friendship on the Line: Who's in the Right? 🤷‍♂️

A group of college friends find themselves in a tough spot after their Vegas trip turned into a family-friendly adventure. While they love their buddy's daughter, they yearn for the freedom to enjoy the 'adult stuff' that Vegas is known for. As they plan their next trip, they're torn between their desire for an adults-only vacation and their respect for their friend's life as a single dad. Now, they're left wondering - were they wrong to exclude the child from their plans? 🎲🍻👧

Bringing a kid to Vegas? NTA, but definitely not cool 😵

"NTA. He can go on a trip with Steph any time he wants. To insist on bringing his kid on a guy's only trip meant for adults is entitled. Hell even bringing her last time without telling you is entitled and to some degree HE ruined that trip. But if he's this entitled you maybe better off not bringing him along."
