Is selling tickets to your birthday party a thing now?

I feel sorry for her. On one hand, it is rude to throw yourself a party, but then no one else stepped up to do it either. She just survived a major health issue and no one cared enough to throw her a 50th Birthday celebration.

It would have been gracious to host her birthday party – without attaching any costs to her guests – not only as a celebration of her 50 years, but as a celebration of friendship and gratitude to those who helped her.

annabeth929 :  Why have embarrassment, though? It sounds like she appropriately gaged the mood/nature of her friends group and had a great birthday. If she’s a event host, or tapped into a music scene, or just has a lively social group it sounds like something people would be used to. Every gala I’ve attended has been a charity event founded by a bored wife or a cause near-and-dear to someone’s heart that is basically an excuse to be praised, seen and enjoy a party. At least she was completely honest about what she was doing.

This is either genius or just as sad as it sounds.

I really don’t understand what has happened to the world recently. Everyone wants to be famous and lauded and have money showered on them. Greed seems to be rampant. Are people never embarassed by their behaviour anymore? (Geez I sound like some old cranky guy sitting on a porch wanting to jab some young whipper snappers with my cane….)
