Etiquettes

And so we are here again, I am going to rant about invite etiquette.
Thankfully it will not be a long post, I have too much work going on ;)

So, it was the babies birthday and I had sent invites a month before the party. Plus I had called everyone on the list and made sure they were personally invited.
All this 'personal' touch not withstanding it took some people 2 calls, an email plus a paper invite to get back to me.
So here's the question, how long does it take for anyone to look at their calendars, consult their family and get back? If it is their party, wouldn't they want everyone to revert back to them ASAP. Obviously yes! It takes planning to organize a party, there is the food, the deco, the return gifts. All these depend on the invites, don't they? There was a time when I started thinking I was begging people to come ! Such 'friends' I have!
So where is the line drawn? Do you call once and wait for the person to get back to you? Or you think, maybe this person is really genuinely busy and call or write to them again. But that should definitely be it right?

I was so disgusted with a few folks, that I wanted to really tell them how I felt. But that is not my nature, so I refrained. But next time, I am going to be more crass! If you are reading this blog and are put off by my tone...I am sorry. But I was frustrated (probably still am).
Will post a smiley, cheery post soon...

  1. I have come to the conclusion that most people, while being very dear and precious, are pretty stupid.

    People are just insensitive to other people's problems and like to act pricey. That being said, there is something to be said about the people who do reply immediately. I LOVE those!!!

    @ Sophie
    Yeah, I should've written about those too. But the ones who are thoughtless are just irritating!
