Yep, I said it.
You used to be able to expect some courtesy out of people when planning something like a party or gathering or whatever. Because, after all, you are planning something you want an RSVP for.
Common courtesy has become something of a lost…concept…these days. In a world where “Hey you do you and I’ll do me” seems to fly but no one is really good at doing anything anymore. Everyone is just half-assing their way through life.
OK, to be fair. not everyone. There are still some responsible adults out there. I don’t want to over generalize, but you know what I mean.
Anyway, if you get a request for an RSVP – DO IT! Otherwise it wouldn’t have been asked for.
Just do it. (stupid Nike…)
“Hi, I’d like to RSVP for ______________”
It’s just the right thing to do.
