For the love of all things holy....just RSVP!
That being said....Parties are nothing without the people that you invite. When I was little and up until a few years ago, primarily, you would send out paper invites about a month in advance to your friends telling them that you were having a party and you wanted them to be there. You asked if they could please give you a call on your house phone and let you know. Sometimes you would even put regrets only so that only the people that knew they couldn't make it had to respond.
Now most of the time we send "evites" or emails. All anyone has to do is hit a button that says yes or no. They don't have to even call you. There is no awkward interactions or excuses that need to be made. There really should be no hurt feelings even.
So explain to me why people can't even be bothered to hit one of those little buttons? Say you are trying to get a head count for a party you are having out and about that is number sensitive or you are having it at home and wondering if an extra family of five is coming and you need another 20 dollar sandwiches. And all they have to do is.....hit......the.....button!
I have certain people in my life that do this quite often and some I know to expect it from. It doesn't make it any less annoying but you kinda live with it. I just wish I could understand. I know sometimes it could be because they truly are that busy or they forget but every time, really? I want to stop inviting them all together but its not that simple. Just hit the button folks. Just pick one and click on it. Make a decision.....Please!
