- Wedding: May 2011
Even though we won’t be sending out invitations until August, I am already stumped on what to do about inviting people from the office.
I have a small staff that I supervise, but I don’t really want to invite them. They have said some really awful things about me (that’s a long story on the way the organization does managerial evaluations) and can be kind of rude people in general. Honestly, I DON’T want them at the wedding. However, they are hyper-sensitive, passive-aggressive type people, so I know just telling them that “we wish we could invite everyone but we can’t afford it” won’t work and most likely they will be difficult to handle after that.
Then there is my boss. I am lucky if I get five minutes of her time each day. She often ignores my emails, phone calls etc. She is totally overworked, I get it, but I think she sees me more as a nuisance. We don’t really talk all that much and for some reason (she does this with a lot of people) she makes odd assumptions about others. I don’t really want to invite her, but do I “have” to because she is my boss?
I’m not terribly savvy with office politics. Is it in my best interest to just suck it up and invite these people, who don’t care about me or my FH, to the wedding?
