This is just a vent. I’ve posted about the birthday party we are having for my dad before. That was before we even sent the invitations. Now the RSVPs are coming in and I got a doozy.
My aunt calls and says my uncle won’t be coming with her because he’s not social but her son (my cousin, not invited) offered to come with her since she can’t come alone, blah blah. I said fine, no worries. Then she states, “But there is a little problem. He has a girlfriend. Can she come also?” I said the standard sorry, space is limited and we were so strict with the guest list, members of my dad’s family were cut (she is my aunt on my mom’s side). So she says, “Can his girlfriend come in my place then?”
I thought: Um excuse me?! I just stated that my dad’s family members have been cut from the guest list and you want to send some chick we don’t even know who has probably been my cousin’s girlfriend for three and a half minutes in your place? Can’t she find something to do for 3 hours on a Saturday night? Not to mention, my cousin wasn’t even invited in the first place!
I said: Well that’s up to you but we sent you the invite because we wanted you there. Let me know what you guys decide to do.
Now, I really feel like I don’t want this girl to come in her place. If my aunt decides not to come I would rather extend the invitation to someone who knows my father (hello!) instead of having the girlfriend there. My cousin attending, I don’t have a problem with. Is it too late to tell my aunt that? This conversation occurred last night.
