The secretary at my office, I’ll call her Cindy, is getting married in a few weeks. She has been engaged for the past 9 months and I have listened to all of her wedding woes and basically know most of her wedding details. She has insisted I/we “save the date” and attend her wedding. Much time went by and we never received an invitation, even when it surpassed the normal timeframe in which invites should be sent out. We are “close enough” for coworkers that I finally asked her if I still needed to save the date and if she had decided to not invite coworkers or something along those lines, no big deal. Apparently at least one other coworker had been invited but I was trying to not embarrass her and give her an out. She said that she had invited me but the invitation must have been “lost in the mail.” Cindy proceeded to give me an invitation written with a red Sharpie on a post-it note. Needless to say, I’ve stopped saving the date. 1121-09
