How fucking hard is it to RSVP?! 

We sent out invitations for Fysh’s birthday a while back. 45 invitations sent. Because the more the merrier and we love throwing parties so go all out come birthday. (His birthday anyway, I’ve had too many shitty birthdays people have forgotten.) Of the 45 only 14 RSVP’d and then when I asked people to please confirm attendance because we personalise the take home bags and I need to know food wise how to care only 3 people responded. 

THREE fucking people out of 45 were civilised enough to respond. So that means we sit with me catering for the 3 and everyone pitching up or I cater for everyone and no one pitches up because that shit happens as well. And we simply are not financially able to cater for ghosts. My fat ass does not need that much leftover cake and sweets and stuff and my bank account can’t deal. 

In wondering what this says about the people I keep company with… :/

So Fysh and I had a chat and he said we should cancel it rather. That dear parents is fucking heartbreaking. You know what this genius of a 7 year old responded with when I asked if he’s sure? He said “yes, let’s rather go to a park where I can play with lots of kids who I don’t have to bribe with cake to play with me.”  

He is SEVEN and he has this toilet of a world all figured out already. 

Still bloody sucks though. 

It seems that a RSVP is very much like a please and thank you… Not hard but apparently out dated.

    I can’t believe the wisdom of this boy – you have raised him right! I would eat cupcakes with you and play ball with him anyday!

    Shame that is so sad. Adults can be a**holes! Well done to Fysh for being strong enough to think like that!

    I hope he has a lovely birthday

    I LOATHE people who do not RSVP, especially to kids parties!!!!!
    Same thing happened at my daughter’s birthday – they just started showing up, like moths to the flame or atleast cake whores to the cake
    I recently attended a 5 year old’s birthday party. My daughter, my cousins child and the birthday boy were there. Note that the mother invited the ENTIRE creche of 32 children and majority never bothered to show. Faith in humanity and non – RSVP parents shattered!!!!!!
    Let me know which park you’re going to and I’ll be there :) What does Fysh like? #prezzietime

      Aaw! So sweet. And same. I’m so damn tired of these people. There is a special place in hell for people who don’t RSVP. Right next to the people who don’t flush public toilets.
      We’re going to go hiking and then for ice cream sandwiches afterward at the waterfront. But play date any weekend at the park just shout. I’m always in bed of adult conversation haha.
