S/O of Housewarming Pary Thread: The 12 Days of E-Hell
« on: December 24, 2012, 10:49:53 AM »
For simplicity's sake I'm not writing it out in its entirety:

Your party invitation arrived two weeks ago; I said “yes” to the RSVP

On the second day after you then said to me “bring a dish for ten and thanks for the RSVP”
On the third day after you then said to me “bring your own liquor, bring a dish for ten, and thanks for the RSVP”


Day 4:  No shoes in my house
Day 5: Bring your own chair.
Day 6: Pick up my son from daycare
Day 7: Buy ice at the deli...
Day 8:  We're only wearing white
Day 9:  please don't wear perfume
Day 10:  bring a kitchen gift
Day 11:  Ten dollars at the door


On the twelfth day after I took a deep breath and changed my RSVP.

Lovely!

Well done!  Things with sequential modification can really nibble away at one's benevolence and holiday spirit if we let them.  Sometimes standing up for ourselves can take the form of telling people "I'm sorry, but I won't be able to make it to your party, even though I said I would.  Hope it's wonderful!"

Here's my version:

Your party invitation arrived two weeks ago; I said “yes” to the RSVP

On the second day after you then said to me “bring a dish for ten and thanks for the RSVP”
On the third day after you then said to me “bring your own liquor, bring a dish for ten, and thanks for the RSVP”


Day 4:  No shoes in my house
Day 5: "Please bring floor pillows- we're low on chairs."
Day 6: "Oh, and Sally and Joe will be riding with you."
Day 7: "Please bring a beeswax candle in a holder."
Day 8:  "Our theme is Orange Madness, so wear something orange!"
Day 9:  "And bring some oranges."
Day 10:  "My cousin's MIL is coming, please pick her up at the airport and bring her- can she stay with you? Thanks so much."
Day 11:  "Check out our registry online- we want a swimming pool!"


On the twelfth day after I took a deep breath and changed my RSVP.

If wisdom’s ways you wisely seek,
Five things observe with care,
To whom you speak,
Of whom you speak,
And how, and when, and where.

Winterlight, that 11th day is genius.  Did this actually happen to you?

Fortunately, no- it just sprang out of nowhere. I have a weird head. *g*
