My co-worker's teenage son got an invitation to a calssmate's sweet 16 party.
The invitation specifies "entrance to the party is $10 in advance, $15 at the door." Apparently AFTER the invites were sent out her son brings home word that the "entrance fee" is supposed to be in lieu of a gift (backpedal anyone?).
CoWorker is hilarious. "Oh, NO. I would have sent him to that party with $10 and a card, but you want to charge an entrance fee?? H*ll No!" So her son will not be attending the birthday party in question. I wonder how many kids will attend though.
All I could think was... oh, my fellow eHellions will LOVE this story!
