- Wedding: October 2011
I just have to vent for five seconds about a ridiculous text I received this morning.
Suzie is a friend that was part of my circle of close friends in high school. After college, I lost touch with her and we communicated via text and a very rare get-together.
When I became engaged last November, I did the obligatory announcement on Facebook and she was one of hte people who reached out to me and said how happy she was and was asking me when the big day was. She seemed like she was overly interested in coming to the wedding and even though we weren’t as close as we once were, I thought “if she wants to be there, she will be there!”
I sent out my Save the Dates in early February.
Flash forward to July when my Maid/Matron of Honor sent out shower invites. Suzie was the only person to not RSVP for my shower.
The day of the shower, I got a random text from her that said how she would be singing the national anthem at a local minor league baseball team. (It seemed like a mass text.) I replied a few days later and said “Hey sorry for the delay…things were hectic with the shower this weekend, but congrats! Such an amazing opportunity.” (Or something like that.) She replied, “Oh, sorry I missed it, hope you had a good time!”
Well, clearly she isn’t sorry she missed it since she couldn’t be bothered to RSVP, but again, whatever. I let it go.
So…I have yet to receive her RSVP and after her non response for the shower, I figured I’d follow up sooner rather than later. I sent her a text on Friday asking if she got the invite. She replied today with:
“Hey there. I’m sorry I’m just getting back to you now. Yes. Got the invite. I wanted to make sure it’s 10/8, right? I needed to check my schedule for work and make sure I wasn’t needed to be on call. (here comes the annoying part) Ugh…weddings make me sad lol. Let’s me know another one of my friends is now off the market and I’m not…lol but congrats!”
I just saw that and am thinking…REALLY? I’m so sorry that my wedding depresses you. Maybe you should just not come.
I feel much better now. LOL
