I ask this as I’m bewildered at a new trend of sending out an invitation that explains your party plans and getting a reply which proves the content was neither read nor understood.
I’m trying to plan a girly get-together with some good friends for my birthday. I first sent out a message asking people to keep the date open and mentioned what I’d had planned. A ladies lunch with just a small group of us ladies.
So can someone please explain to me why am I getting a RSVP for a friend and her boyfriend?
“We’ll be there” (when I clearly stated it was a girly gathering) makes me wonder if people actually bother to read invitations.
I’ve heard loads of stories of how people don’t RSVP or do it too late but not even bothering to read an invitation takes laziness to a new level.
A friend of mine has had issues with her friends bringing kids to adult only parties.
She has said goodbye to her clean and stain free carpet as well as a peaceful evening just to keep someone happy.
This woman either cannot read or chooses not to read what is in the invitation.
When did manners (and let's face it we are seeing less and less of good manners these days) take yet another nosedive?
Since when is reading an invitation and respecting the host’s wishes that difficult?
