I would thank her for providing the WB community with such an atrocious email to talk about and then say:

please remove me from this email thread

Hahahahahahahahaha.  I’m happy stuff like this happens.  It makes me feel better about the no-doubt endless etiquette no-nos I’ve committed over the years.

@happyface:  I love this response!!!!! 


Say nothing. Although your email has me worried, I (sadly) have a friend who I could imagine doing that. She quibbles over a penny! So I can sympathize but don’t reply! x

Wow…amazing! I think I’d want to stay on the thread just to see how many times she keeps emailing me to solicit money!

@starfish0116:  The couple pretty much always at least breaks even, so at that point it comes more down to whether they want the extra work of planning it, or if they genuinely just enjoy socials in the first place. I personally always enjoy socials, I love how the atmosphere is, and its an inexpensive evening out with people you don’t get to see on a regualr basis. During social season here i typically go to at least 3 a year, There is no way i could ever do an outing to a club for $30 or less the entire evening, and at a social i have the chance to win amazing prizes as well as money.

I just cannot believe this is real. I think it’s really funny, but it’s just too far fetched to be real. I mean after the first email surely that person would get so much sh*t they wouldn’t send a Second one…right??

So I know this could be fake and all, but it’s still funny. If true, my fave part is this bit because it shows that in addition to faultless social tact she also has impeccable logic:

“I hate to ask again (and please don’t feel this as pressure if you can’t or just plain aren’t interested), but I know many people didn’t get through my last email because it was so long.” 

Word count of first email: 303

Word count of second email: 703

@Brideonabudgetlauren:  +1 

This is so hilarious, actually.  I am shocked that this can even be a REAL person asking or saying these things.  A cover charge?  Are you serious???  I’d send her a suggestion alright, the phone number for the local courthouse.  She’s lost it and there’s no way on earth I’d donate or attend the wedding for that matter.

That bride is out of her mind if she thinks that’s ok.

@FauxBoho:  i noticed it, but i am not interested in accomplishing anything work related today and this post is helping me meet my goal, so i’ll take it.

i do often wonder what the point is of making up fake posts and how sad the lives of people who do so must be!
