Somehow this type of thing never fails. I don’t know what it is! Good luck dealing with all of that though! 🙁

Incredible. I guess it’s time for FIL to call them up!

@shanbp:  PP is right, this never fails.  People are dumb.  I had people purposely mark down that they wanted a kids meal when they’re adults because they thought it was funny.

@shanbp:  I did similar RSVP’s.  We’re getting a bunch back where people can’t figure out how to write the number of people that are coming in.  Just giving me your name doesn’t tell me if you are coming or not!  Also, to the genius who didn’t write their name on it at all… really?  REALLY?

I’ve only gotten a few back (bridal party and close family, mostly), but my cousin forgot to fill in the first blank. Thankfully I knew it would be all three of them. I forgot to fill in the second number for one of FI’s groomsmen, so they filled it in as “two of us attending” lmao.

@letigre:  I’m probably going to save some of these just for laughs and good memories. FFIL’s RSVP (done by his wife) came back with doodles on it.

People are super dumb.

We did check boxes:

Guest(s) will be attending

Guest(s) are unable to attend


One of our guests (single guy, no +1, envelope addressed only to him) checked off “Guest(s) are unable to attend” even though he is coming. But he isn’t bringing a guest so thats what he picked.
