I don't know about anybody else, but I was raised that when you're invited to an event and an RSVP is requested, you RSVP!!! Why don't people do this anymore? Are people just too darn busy to pick up the phone or respond to an EVITE? Holy hand grenades, you're already on the darn computer, just click already!
My DD's baby shower is this Saturday. EVITES to save the date went out 6 weeks ago. Handwritten invitations went out 2 1/2 weeks ago ~ 60 people invited. 19 people have responded (9 yes, 7 no, 3 maybe) ~ out of 60. How the heck are we supposed to know how much food to prepare for?
This is one of my all-time pet peeves ~ have we raised a whole generation of rude people? Grrrrrrr!!!
