People are mean and stupid. I just got yet another email from someone who has repeatedly sent me invites via emailing a list he has not bcc’d. It is the same person who has the audacity to hide the invite list on an evite. Doesn’t he know that I need to know who is coming on your evite because we were part of a theatre company where I dated and broke up with some of those people? And the not bcc-ing the list on a regular email invites all sorts of replies i get caught up in for an event i wasn’t going to go to in the first place because a) i don’t want to run into any ex-boyfriends without knowing if they are bringing a guest and b) I am pissed that the list was sent out not bcc’d, inviting all sorts of spamola.
Learn your invite etiquette, people.
And while we are at it, who thought it would be a good idea to see other friend’s events prominently placed in the right hand margin on my facebook page? Way to go to make me feel left out!
I hate technology. I am never leaving my house or going to another party ever again. Meanwhile I am waging war on the non bcc-ers. And changing all my passwords, email addresses and names. Go ahead, call me petty and paranoid. Just don’t invite me without giving me the semblance of control over how I handle your invite. The fact is we’re NOT all friends.
Sorry to be the bitter one, but there you have it.
UPDATE! The person has now made their extensive email list bcc. Thanks. NOt sure if he read this but if he did its all proof to the effectiveness of blogging your fury!
