Don't invite me to your kids wedding! - Vent
To the point: Why do friends that live thousands of miles away invite me to thier kids wedding knowing that:
A)I don't fly in airplanes anymore
B)Even if I did, the expense of getting a hotel, rent-a-car, meals, etc. is prohibitive given the economy.
C) I am feeling squeezed to the marrow with gift pandering.
How do I tell them, "Congratulations on your daughter's wedding - please take me off the invite list." Any advice appreciated.
