On my last post about people RSVPing late to a child's birthday party, someone commented:
"I agree that not RSVPing until after the date is a bit rude, but I have a feeling that even if the people did RSVP and didn't show up [Fizzy would] still find fault."
Well.... yeah! I pay by the kid, so if someone doesn't show up, I'm paying extra for them for nothing! I paid an extra several hundred dollars for my wedding reception due to people saying they'd show but didn't for no apparent reason. And I had negative income at the time. Anyone who's ever planned an event should realize this is rude.
I mean, how hard is it to tell someone you're going to be somewhere in a timely fashion and then actually show up? Doesn't anyone have a sense of responsibility anymore?
That same lovely commenter also wrote:
"I'm sorry, but the weekly whines seem really trivial and nit picky lately."
Ha. Okay, I'll try to cover more important topics like I used to, like car decals, how nobody reads the books in my book club, or my very first whine, about how the cleaning woman won't take out the garbage.
