Friday dilemma: Should I snub the two-faced host?
So a Puncher got invited to a big birthday bash a little while ago.
The invitation was sent over Facebook. The Puncher was only really an acquaintance of the person whose party it was, but was happy to have been invited.
After all, the Puncher had a really good conversation with the acquaintance at a party not all that long ago.
So the Puncher filed the date away in their mind and forgot about it. Until a week or so later when a friend asked the Puncher whether they were going to So and So’s birthday party. The Puncher looked up the event on Facebook, and noticed that their invitation was gone.
Rescinded. All of the Puncher’s friends invitations were still there. The Puncher was bewildered.
Then just a few days ago, about a week before the party, the Puncher received another invite to the same party. From this, The Puncher could only assume that he was now being re-invited because not enough other people had RSVP’d.
In other words, the host was desperate. Stuff it, they said. We need bodies at this party. Socially awkward freaks are better than nobody.
This brings us to this week’s dilemma: Should the Puncher go to the party? All their mates are going. But was the Facebook dis-invite just a bit too rude? What if it was an oversight? What if it’s a rockin’ party?
You tell us.
