For the love of all things holy....just RSVP!

I love parties. I love to plan them and most of the time I love to throw them.  I would have more parties if I had the money to plan them the way I see them in my head. I'm very convinced that every party I would throw would be a minimum of $1000 to $5000 if that were the case.

 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!


  1. So true...I was just talking about this yesterday with Jill (from GB) -- it's frustrating...I think a book is needed. LOL -- I hope I'm not the one that does this to you as I try to always respond! Same thing applies -- when someone calls you or emails you and asks you a question it's important to respond...I don't get how people don't respond.

    1. You are most definitely not the one who does this. You guys are very good about responding in general. It's the "other" people.

  2. I completely agree. Not RSVPing is one of my biggest pet peeves, I hate it.


Your comments make my day. I love responding to them. Please make sure you have your setting so that you see my reply. I always reply.
