Bichon Frise:  Hi___,

This is ___ . I wanted to let you know that I won’t be  coming to the get together tonight. I am really not interested in a Mary Kay party. Sorry to miss seeing you and the rest of the girls. Have a fun evening.<br /><br />

julies1949: I think that’s a great way to phrase it. OP, it’s probably best to just be direct and ay you’re not interested. You friend basically tricked you into agreeing to attend a sample party, which was really uncool of her and it’s okay to back out. If I were you I’d contact the other moms and see how they feel about this, you’re probably not the only one who is feeling a little used. Depending on what the rest of the group has to say, you might be able to meet up for dinner after all.

Bichon Frise:  I think you are correct. Adults do not need to manage other people’s choices. If the other women don’t want to go, they can stand up for themselves.

I’d be seriously pissed off at this particular deception because I truly detest direct sales parties being tricked into one would really get my goat!

So I absolutely sympathise with the situation you are in and I suggest you politely decline but don’t actually ask the other women about it. If they are equally cross about how your moms’ night has been hi-jacked I’m sure word will get back to you.

Bichon Frise:  You were duped and it was totally uncool.  I hate the tactics used by these companies.

Don’t  go! Those MK reps are THE worst.

Send the other mom an e-mail that says you must have understood, you thought it was just a moms night in and you didn’t realize it was a sales party.  Tell her that frankly, you don’t care for MK or these type of sales parties so you won’t be attending.

Don’t fall for it when she says just come to have fun and socialize.
