- Wedding: January 2017
I wouldn’t get involved any further about the lounge, let whoever else is letting her use it worry about it.
I would also ignore the invite, she’s trying to get a reaction from you and will probably try to drag you into some other drama or look for something else from you.
It doesnlt seem like you want to be friends with her anyway so just let her and her crap wander off out of your life.
Any chance the invitation is fake, ie she had it made up just to thumb her nose at you? You’d show up and no one would be there.
I guess you’ll soon find out one way or another. I disagree with not saying something. This girl is an out and out stalker. I’d simply let the condo board know and let them handle it. Maybe she did pay someone to rent it for her though I can’t imagine doing that for a stranger.
mrstodd2bee : my parents rent their unit out. They don’t know anyone in the building.
weddingmaven : I checked the resident network online. The lounge is booked for the exact date and time she claims to be having her party.
I still haven’t told my parents about the invite. Hubby agrees we should probably let it go. He’s worried that if I get involved that she might retaliate in some way.
If you’re absolutely sure that she does not know anyone else from the condo housing besides your parents (who didn’t get involved), is it possible for her to approach any random resident there and offer to pay them a bit of money so they could book the party under their name for her?
What is so important with this specific lounge that she has to have it? Is it super fancy?
I don’t know what her deal is with this lounge. It’s basically standard to what every other condo lounge in the area looks like. All of these condo builders make identical buildings. It seemed as though she just wanted that one because she thought we’d give her a free space. Her figuring out a way to get her party there instead of just looking for something else is probably motivated by us saying no to her.
She is crazy. However at this point, it’s not your problem anymore. Your parents are not on the hook, your refusal is documented so live your life, ignore her invite and move on. RSVP yes for fun is not worth it.
Given the fact that your stated issue with her request was about questions of liability (as opposed to her copying your venue setting), I’d let it go. Your parents aren’t in any way impacted by her having the party there, are they? Yes, she looks hella obtuse, fixating on that particular space, and making an annoyance of herself, but it doesn’t really affect you anymore. Go, or not, based on what you feel like doing that day (maybe you need to wash your hair or paint your nails or something and can’t make it.)
All this stuff about contacting the building mangement and tattling and blah blah blah is fun to think about but actually doing it comes across so small and vindictive. It’s a weak flex and would just be a power play because she went around you and got what she wanted. You told her you weren’t going to help her. As long as she didn’t use your name or your parents’ names…. eh. Whatever. Enjoy your party, basic ass copycat bitch. And if she just invited you to make a point, then she also is missing the point of what her engagement party is supposed to be about and she’s ridiculous on top of being obtuse.
I’m positive that she invited me to make a point. Also, apparently seconds after she sent out the invite she posted this gem on FB: “People only rain on your parade because they’re jealous of your sun and tired of their shade.”
