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!

Paint.

Wow is that obnoxious. Well your consolation can be that you will throw a wonderful party and she will have a great time and never be back again. She will miss all the fun the next time you do this.

You are right, some people have no manners!

ooooooooh! That would make me so frustrated!
Do you suppose that this girl has never been to such a fete that perhaps she doesn't know the proper etiquette? Hopefully she'll be kind tonight and apologize for being inconsiderate.

Easy for me to say, since I don't have to live near her. But you should not have even had to call the girl!

Let us know if she even shows up. From the sounds of her message, she may have something "better" to do. Heaven forbid she miss a rerun of Wheel of Fortune!
