Ok, if any of you read, or posted in, my topic about worst Vegas travel companions, then you know I have horrible luck traveling to Vegas with people. Now, I'm going in June with the friend that I actually like traveling with, but now my brother wants to go also. My brother is one of the worst traveling companions that I talk about in the other topic. I don't want to be a jerk, but I don't want him to go either. It wouldn't be so bad if he would realize that we can be out there together, but not spend every moment we're awake together. He doesn't see vacations that way though, no matter where he goes. I mean, he'll go to Cancun for instance, but won't lay on the beach unless somebody goes with him. If he's in Vegas, he may want to go relax by the pool, but won't do it unless somebody goes with him. So, I really don't want him going and hovering over me non-stop. I'm sure I wouldn't feel this way if I hadn't experienced it from him before. So, my question is, if you guys were in this situation, how would you tell him no without intentionally being a jerk? Keep in mind, I know I can't actually prevent him from going if he REALLY wants to go, but I do know that because of his thoughts on solo travel, he won't go unless he knows he'll have somebody to hang out with.
