Did someone really write in to ask this? Seriously?
Bless their little heart.....

I was recently "called out" by someone for my not inviting them to a get together. But this certain someone is famous for not RSVPing. In my opinion, if you can't bother to let me know if I should purchase cocktails and food for you, then I can't bother to invite you. I am OCD people. I NEED to know who is coming to my house. (Last minute emergencies aside, of course!)
So when this little gem showed up on Facebook today, I couldn't help but re-post. Quite a spark of conversation has started over Miss Manners article of the day, and I've found myself pondering a few of the questions that have been posed:
Should "maybe" be deleted from the list of RSVP options?
Must one reply to a Facebook "invite" when it's obvious everyone the invitor is friends with has been invited? It certainly isn't a "personal" invitation. Is it rude to ignore?
Is it "tacky" to follow-up with people who have missed the RSVP date, and neither confirmed nor denied their attendance?
What do YOU think?
