Every time I initiate a group gathering whether it is an around-town activity or a group in my home, I am reminded of the importance of RSVPs.
Why is letting a host or hostess know your plans so hard?
Why is it 'ok' (and I use that term very loosely, because in all reality it's not acceptable at all) to never reply?
Why is it 'ok' (see above definition) to not RSVP and then show up anyway?
Why is it 'ok' to respond yes and then change that to no the day of or maybe a day before with the reason being a better offer!?
Why is it okay in our minds to treat our friends disrespectfully in this manner?
At first I thought maybe it was just the people that don't host events very often, therefore do not know the importance of knowing numbers. But that's not it either, even hosts fail to RSVP correctly.
I don't know the answer, but it's frustrating.
