At the time of me making this post, I am highly pissed off. You will see why in a moment.
In the chat, I have discussed a tournament that I was going to be participating in this weekend. I was required to sign up with a partner at the time of registration. As if my string of bad luck couldn't get any worse from the weekend, it gets worse. Here's the scenario.
I got in contact with this person on October 2nd, two weeks before the competition, to ask him if he was willing to partner with me for the tournament. He accepts my invitation. I sign both of us up for the tournament. I would then attempt to contact him again numerous times to inquire about what system will be used for the tournament and what will have to be done to prepare. I do not receive a single response from him.
I don't get anything from him until today, three days before the tournament is supposed to take place. He says to me that a friend of his signed up him and told him about it last week, which, based on the way it was worded, meant that he was signed up without his consent and was told about it last week, one week after I asked him. He has the audacity to imply that he is taking the other person's side.
Keep this in mind. I had asked him two weeks in advance about this tournament. He knew that I was signing him up, but suddenly, a friend comes along one week after me and I just get kicked to to the side, and he doesn't bother telling me until three days before the tournament? People, does this honestly seem fair to you?

To be fair means to treat people equally without nepotism or favoritism. It also means being just and unbiased in decision making. This person clearly violated both definitions. Honestly, I don't think he wanted to be your partner in the first place, because if he did, he would have refused to be the partner of the other guy and stood his ground on being your partner. I would be angry at him if I was the one treated unfairly. I mean, you signed him up long before that other guy showed up.
I'm curious to know what step you intend to make. I'm guessing late signups (especially 3 days to the d-day) is not allowed. Are you still in or out?
