Okay. So I sent out my invitations for our Christmas party. I sent out 109 emails via MailChimp. This was a very nice invite and was professionally designed. It clearly requested an RSVP, and yes I included a due date. And to cover all my bases, I sent the same invite out via Facebook events. These went to close friends, family and some very important business associates. The party is in TWO days and there are still 76 people who have not bothered to RSVP! Now you might say that maybe people just don't want to come to my stupid party, however that is not the case. The same thing happened last year, but an ass load of people showed up. So I'm guessing the same thing will happen this year. I was going to copy and paste a little description of why it's important to RSVP but my boyfriend told me not to dare send that out as it would appear rude. So I don't know whether to buy a bag of peanuts or to hire a caterer! I've also thought of putting a sign on the door saying "RSVP Guests Only", but I got shot down on that one too. Ugghhh. To be honest, I feel like I'm in a punishing mode. I want to let these fuckers know how rude this is, but apparently I'm supposed to just shut the fuck up and let people be inconsiderate. Advice please?
