So FI and I have a little bet going to see which person’s guests would come back with the rudest response card. I of course figured it would be his, because I was banking on no card at all. (And, to date that’s true–deadline on Saturday and not one single response card from his side of the family.)
Anyway, I just got one back from my Mom’s best friend. I invited her, and her husband because my mother asked me to.
So it comes back with “We might be bringing [five additional guests.] We’re not sure yet. We’ll let you know.”
I stared at it for a long time then silently handed it over. And FI of course, got a great laugh.
WTF. They’ll let me know. /shudder.
What “creative” responses have you gotten?

Holy s**t that is unbelievable!! I actually “guffawed” when I read that response.
I’m not yet engaged but I’m dreading this situation already!

That’s awful! I cannot believe someone would have the nerve. All I can say is good luck, I’d be having your mom call to tell her it is quite inappropriate.

I had the same happen to me! The invitation was addressed to Ms.*** and Guest .
We had yet to hear from her so my mother emailed her to get her response. She apologized prefusely that she hadnt yet answered because she was just waiting on her daughters. Yes daughterS….and they’re DATES!
She asumed that she could invite her 3 daughters and their 3 boyfriends AND her own guest… so that would have made 8 people from an invitation for 2 .
Fortunateoy my mom emailed back and put the kibosh on that…
I dont understand people…..

Excuse me while I bellow to the sky…
WHY DO PEOPLE DO THIS??
Seriously, why? It would never occur to me to do this so I really don’t get it. Okay, rant over.
Did you call her? I hope so.

Uh, what? We might be bringing 5 guests? Who are they bringing along, the partridge family? 5 guests??? Insane. I’m sure a call to mom would be warranted by that one.
