Missing RSVPs because I said book a sitter
I requested everyone to rsvp to our party that is coming up this weekend by Friday of last week. I was thinking that perhaps the delay in quite a few responses was due to Thanksgiving.
Now I am starting to find out that some of the couples are not coming or not sure if they are coming becuase they are trying to see if they are going to book a babysitter.
I am surprised. But, not surprised. I've always had issues with this party and people wanting to bring kids. For the third year in a row I've had to say please book a babysitter on the invite.
There are 40 people total on the guest list and I think at least 20 of them are not coming because of the child issue. I am fine with them not coming. I just can't believe people have such an issue with going to an adult only function.
Not to mention that they don't bring anythign to our parties. We provide all the alcohol. Food. A sitter for three or four hours can't be that expensive.
