My cousin is super bossy. To her husband, family, everyone. Just got her RSVP and she wrote on it her preference for who she wants to sit with at the reception. Is that rude? Or is it acceptable and I am just irritated because it is typical of her personality?
I was going to sit her with the people she named anyway, but a *small* part of me suddenly has the urge to sit her at the kid’s table…. >:}

@hollyberry4: Yes it is rude, because honestly, if she didn’t like where she was sitting, she could move her chair to a different table.
When making a seating chart, you pretty much know who wants to sit where, but compromises need to be made because tables only fit so many chairs.
I’d be annoyed.

That’s annoying, you’re only really sitting during dinner. Whatever, there are bigger matters to take care of besides her shenanigans.

@hollyberry4: She sounds like an obnoxious control freak.
Just sit her where you were originally going to sit her and pay her no mind.

@hollyberry4: Beyond being rude, its also super dumb….I mean, is she so insecure and socially awkward that she can’t sit at a table with new people and eat??? That’s the neat thing about dinner parties and weddings anyway, you get to meet and chat with people you’ve never met, haven’t seen in a long time and make new connections…..
What a weirdo….

@hollyberry4: Rude. I had people calling me up telling me they couldn’t sit with so and so because they don’t along, or that they wanted to sit with so and so. I wanted to tell them all to F- off and seat them in the back of the room all together. Lucky for them, my mother did the seating chart and not me!

@hollyberry4: It’s rude and also pretty pointless as everyone is usually mingling before the meal and only sits down for the meal then mingles again… Last wedding I was at, most of the chairs were empty most of the night b/c people were up and about.

@MrsWBS: ugh that is so annoying! Whenever I go to a wedding I trust the bride and groom to sit us with friends/family. And if not then I just talk to the people at the table! I told my mom what she wrote and she replied, “well she’s a bit of a boss isn’t she ?” Haha!

@hollyberry4: Yeah, I don’t have the social skills of a brick wall, so if I don’t know anyone at my table I can make small talk. Dinner only lasts an hour tops, then you can get up and move around. People are ridiculous!

@hollyberry4: Whoa. Rude, table for one! As PPs have said, seat her where you were originally going to. Some people…

@hollyberry4: I do think it’s rude because guests don’t get a say over the seating plan. Obviously you will sit people who know each other together – you’re not an idiot. However, if it is part of her personality and you were planning to seat her with the people she requested anyway I would just let it go and move on.

@lolaswann: Bahaha I love it!
OP: Yes it is kinda rude. She sounds kinda immature to write that. I would contact her and let her know who I am sitting her with (per my original plan). If that is not where she would like to sit then too bad.

I would set up a tv tray and put her in the corner so she doesnt have to sit next to anyone she doesn’t know or like. 🙂 Biatch…
