If you invite people to a party, you expect them to RSVP by a certain date. In my mind – this is not rocket science – “YES I will attend”, or “NO I will not attend”. So why is it so difficult for people to RSVP? Is it an intricate thought process? Maybe they have a lot going on in their minds (a colleague of mine always used to say “sy koppie, hy raas”). Maybe Yes / No are not part of their vocabulary? Huh?
What I have noticed is this – people are waiting for a better offer. Your “do” is just not the event of the year. Even though they don’t have anything else lined up for that day, they will hold out for a better offer. COME ON MAN…..make a choice. It’s really not that difficult.
And then you get the people who think they will offend you. HA. You won’t offend me, I’m just glad you replied …WITH a decision. I really appreciate it. Thanks to you all. Your mom really did her job properly.
Then there’s the ”Falsies” – “Oh, it’s gonna be such fun!” and “Oh, I haven’t been to one of those. Is it cool?” Uh, Yah? So they wanna be adventurous, they accept. Just to fucking cancel on your ass a day before. Buggers. Those people will not make it onto my list again. Ever. OK, maybe after I get over myself.
Last but not least the “Yuppies” – the ones who wants to know who will also be there. Seriously?!! Does it matter. I’m inviting you, not THEM. And George Dubyah can’t make it anyways….So will you still come? Probably not, coz’ there’s not important / savvy / sexy / rich / pretty enuff people attending. In this case….your ass is history in my books!
