- Wedding: September 2009
So the other day I received and e-mail giving me a complimentary blah blah blah romantic getaway for two. So, knowing that I couldn’t use the coupons promo code for myself, I decided to give it out to other people in the event that they might be able to use it.
I should preface this next segment by saying that I am a member of a sorority and the roughly 50 people that I crossed/went over/pledged with still keep in touch though an e-mail group….mind you we are nearing, close to, have crossed over the 30yr old mark.
Sooooo…I e-mailed the group this PROMO CODE because I said to myself…why not share?
Well WTH was I thinking?!?!? I received an e-mail from one person who ever so gently tried to tell me, “Thanks…but next time could you send this out to people who are the other part of a couple so the rest of us don’t feel some kind of way..thanks :)”
So at first I was huh? It was just a promo code…but whatever, okay…fine.
Then someone else said, “yeah I’m gonna have to agree…and you would feel the same way if you weren’t all loved up”
so then I was like WTH?!?!?!?!? mind you, there are about 50 people on this group…more than half of us are married, and the other half of those who aren’t are in serious relationships or are dating someone… So were they really asking me to individually find out who was in a relationship and who wasn’t and send it to them? And if THEY were in a relationship, would they still speak out for other single people in the name of single-dom?
I replied back, and everyone thought I overreacted, and all of a sudden everyone was “just kidding” and I should take a chill pill cause it was just a joke…
Now…what is in quotes leaves out only my name…are those jokes? am I missing something?
It’s not like I was organizing a trip for those of us who are in relationships, as to leave the single ladies out…but I ended up feeling some kind of way even after all existent and non-existent beef was squashed…that’s why i’m coming to the hive…what do you think?
