Hmmm, maybe its a self esteem thing then.  Like, he wants to play the role but doesn’t think it through before he promises things.  I would gently confront him and bring up the fact that renegging on the offer makes you feel manipulated since he got what he wanted (and you didn’t for his benefit), and tell him what a bind it put you in and then ask him never to overpromise like that again. My father is ridic cheap so he would never offer a dime (in fact, my mom secretly sent me checks recently, lol) but I would probably be pretty livid if this happened to me too.
