This morning I attended a birthday party for a friends lil dude who turns a full hand of fingers this year! A whole five, and I have not missed one party yet, we were even there with flowers after monster man was born. So what happened today really pissed me off…
Cake, chips, hotdogs rolls, balloons… You name it Rey catered it. We know what things are like financially for everyone these days and parties don’t come cheap which is why most people specify only those who RSVP will be catered for. Fair enough, but what happens when people RSVP and then simply don’t show?
14 kids and 30 adults. That’s how many people RSVP’d yes to monster man’s party.
3 kids and 5 adults. That’s how many of them actually showed.
Seriously?! How would you feel if it happened to you? You wouldn’t like it… So then why do it to someone else? If you know you can’t make it say no, I personally usually say “maybe” and let them know not to cater for us as whether or not we come usually depends on finances. Sucky but honest.
So the next time you are invited to a party do the parent inviting you a fucking favour and be honest about whether or not you will be attending. None of us have money to waste on inconsiderate assholes.
*gets off soapbox*
Happy birtday monster man, and congrats on surviving 5 years of parenthood my friend x
