Where have people's manners and common courtesy gone?
It is Cameron's party today, and I still had not heard definately from one of the mums, despite putting an RSVP on the invitations. When I delivered the invitation the Mum talked as if the child was coming, so today I rang to confirm (and to check which house she would be at for a pick up) the reply was "Oh yeah, no, she's not coming, she's at her Dad's, oh, and their dog has had puppies, so she wants to see them".
How hard would it have been for her to ring, she needn't have given me a reason, but a quick phonecall to say, "sorry, C can't come to the party, but thanks for the invite" would have gone a long way in my books.
Anyway, that's my rant for the day, we are just about to have some lunch, and will go pick up those kids that are coming, so thankfully the weather is beautiful, and the rest of us should have a great afternoon.
