Why do my friends suck?
Posted 11 May 2008 - 05:23 PM
This Saturday was my family shower. We only invited about 15, expecting it to be really small. Only 8 showed up. My Aunt was a little disappointed, but I had fun and we had a good visit.
Guess who didn't show? That's right, both of my bridesmaids! MOH didn't know she had to go out to lunch with her mom for Mother's Day. I think she could have at least stopped by, but whatever.
The other BM who hasn't paid for her trip and is completely avoiding me also didn't show up.
Then, step mother and half sister didn't come either. I know that my step mom is a freak and gets totally weird around my mom, but I still think she should have showed. I mean it is a shower! It's not like I'm asking them to move in together! All any of them had to do was take an hour out of their day and eat some f-ing cake!
Then, for my Big shower (Please note that I really didn't want a shower and I'm ending up with 5!) my friends never asked me what date worked for me and just sent the invites out! My FMIL calls me freaking out that the date they picked was when we will be in Kansas City for FI's brothers wedding! I know that I have been perfectly clear with all of my friends that their wedding was Memorial Day Weekend, but I guess no one hears the words that come out of my mouth! AHHHHH! I'm am so frustrated!
I appreciate the thoughts and gestures, but don't get mad at me when you don't consult me on plans and they don't work with my schedule! If nothing else, I'm a caterer, most of my weekends are booked! I even turned down a party on the 31st, the day I thought the shower was, so they could host my party that day.
I'm a little bitter at the moment and have decided that people in general are just stupid!

Did someone tell them about the shower that conflicts with the wedding? Maybe they can re-schedule. I hate when people don't listen!

I'm sure your friends meant well when planning the shower, they just didnt' plan it well. First priority should be that the date works well with the btb's schedule.
