Vent - well thanks for honoring me with your presence....
So I decided to have a dinner party for my girlfriends tonight, while DH is away. One of them is a neighbour that I know fairly well from other people's parties and chatting in the street. Well, I asked for RSVP's by yesterday, so I knew how much food to cook. No RSVP, so I called her and she said she was chatting to a friend and could she call me back when she'd finished....OK, so I waited....no call. I called again this morning, no-one in, so I left a message to call me back as I really needed to know if she was going to be able to come tonight....
....the message I just found on my answering machine in return went rather like this: (In very bored, irritated sounding voice) "Oh, um.......I don't know.....um.......well.....oh I guess I could come over for a while....." and that was it!
...Well, I've just spend 2 whole days cooking and cleaning, have my very best china and crystal laid out and have spent over $150 on food....thanks for honouring me with your presence!!!! Honestly, some people have no manners - I won't be inviting her to anything again! Thank goodness my other girlfriends will be there to make it all worthwhile!
