Trying to restrain myself
Hi ladies, i'm just having a bit of a rant!
My h2b and I work together, in a fairly large place, so had a big debate over who to invite from work to our evening reception- we eventually settled on our current teams and some other colleagues that we are particularly friendly with. In the latter category were a couple of ladies, who are good friends with each other- they've both worked with h2b for quite a few years and they were all quite close. One was invited more of a courtesy tbh, the other is still pretty friendly with h2b and her daughter goes to nursery with our son, we go to each other's children's birthdays etc. Neither RSVPed on time, when we chased it up, the first declined saying that she had a family function that night, and the other said she couldn't make it as she'll have just returned from holiday and couldn't really afford it with taxis and stuff. H2b was a disappointed that she couldn't come but accepted it, we're not out to cause people undue hardship just for our wedding, and she's a single parent working part-time so money is quite tight for her.
Flash forward to a few days ago, and the second woman posts on the first's Facebook wall that it's only 18 sleeps! A conversation follows which becomes clear is about a big night out that they've planned. All well and good, except that being in full-on wedding countdown mode, I instantly recognised 18 sleeps as being the same number as to the wedding! They're going out that night with a couple of other colleagues who weren't invited.
If they'd declined saying sorry, we've already got plans, I wouldn't have been that bothered. People have lives outside of our wedding! But the fact that they both lied about it and can't even be bothered to pretend when they know both me and h2b can see all of these posts is really annoying me! It's so bloody rude! There's another post on today about it being 15 sleeps and my fingers are itching to post a pointed status of my own about the number of days to the wedding. I know that starting a bitchfest on Facebook is not really a great use of my time and energy in the run up to the wedding and I should rise above it, but oooh, i'm sorely tempted! The perils of Facebook eh... Xx
