Wow, i think this is the longest I've gone without posting in ages... maybe ever.
I know you missed me, you missed me.... now the law of the land dictates that you now have to kiss me.
Anyway, i wish i could say that i have not been posting because i was out somewhere in the Middle East wearing my whip and fedora while discovering the Ark of the Covenant or something, but alas, the truth is not so exciting.
No, the TRUTH is, i just love Summer. I fucking LOVE it. I wait all year for these 3 months to come around, and when they do, i busy myself with so much Summer parties, frolicking, and general fun, that i really haven't had time to post.
Which brings me to a "Dear Abbey"-style question i wanted to run by you all.
About 2 months ago, I got asked to a party that was scheduled for this past Saturday. The people in question throwing the party are kinda pains in the asses, and i really didn't want to waste one of my valuable summer Saturdays hanging with them, but i knew that if i DIDN'T go to this particular party that I'd never hear the end of it, so i R.S.V.P'ed that i would attend.
For the past 2 months, all i kept hearing from these people was "You'd better not miss our party!".
This past Friday (the day before the party), i get a text from this couple saying simply "Party for tomorrow rescheduled due to weather. Party is now Sunday! Be there!"
What the FUCK?
I already had plans for Sunday, so i politely texted back that due to the change in dates, we weren't going to be able to make it.
Within minutes I got a text back:
"No, you HAVE to make it! Can't you cancel or reschedule your other event?"
That, my friends, is pretty fucking ballsy if you ask me.
When i texted back saying that i couldn't reschedule the other event, I received back:
"Well, we DID have SUNDAY listed as the rain date"
So, my question for all you fine folks is this:
When you R.S.V.P. to go to an event where they list a rain date, are you ALSO R.S.V.P.-ing to the rain date as well? Because that's the load of crap that these people were trying to sling my way this past weekend.
Because, I'm calling bullshit on that noise. If i can make your rain date, i will, but i am not blocking out my entire weekend two months in advance for your shitty party AND your potential shitty party rain date.
Do you realize how popular i am? The only way I'm committing to giving you a full weekend of my Summer time is if YOU are committing to getting me a whip-cream orgy at the Playboy mansion.
