    My son bought tickets for the Reading Festival. I am not sure why but he and his girlfriend are unable to go now. He obviously cannot sell them as it says non transferable on the tickets and they have his name on. Is there anything he can do? Would the organisers refund the money and resell the tickets.

    He doesn't want to make a profit, just wants his 400 back. He says he doesn't want to talk about it and just to forget it but I wondered if there was an option for him to return them. I was just reading about a company called Twickets who are mentioned on the Reading official site but if he sells them through this agent, would the buyer be able to gain admission with his name on them?

    Well Reading is virtually over. Did the Norwegian cough up?

    When my son displays avoidance behaviours, there is something wrong and he knows it. Usually involves mistruths of some sort. Sorry, but that's my experience. The more elaborate the story, the more likely this is.

    I'd leave him to it. There's something he's not telling you.

    Yes, if you say so.

    My son displays avoidance behaviours over everything, from how much his car service cost, to where he got his hair cut, to what film he saw at the cinema, to which band he saw at the gig in London, to what made him burst out laughing last night. Its just in his nature to be like that.

    Forty and fabulous, well that's what my cards say....

    You could look at a lot of threads and say that. At least this is money related and of course it is family. A lot of threads on this board don't have anything to do with money.

    That's probably not avoidance behaviours, that's more 'young person grunts are all you will get' syndrome.

    Isn't that the way most young adults are at some point in their lives?

    Having successfully raised two of them through to mid-twenties and one now at 18 they've all gone through the same phase. The running joke in our house is: Where are you going? Out. When will you be back? Later. Who are you going with? Friends. The exact same things we said to our parents 30+ years ago!!

    I don't think there's anything 'sad' or abnormal about young adults wanting a life independent from their parents and exercising their power to not share every detail with them.
