I have just had it up to here with a friend. She IM'd me on FB to apologize for not sending in the RSVP yet in response to a reminder email I sent out. Told er no prob. Then she asked about the spa day I have planned for the day before the wedding. I sent her the brochure and explained pricing, etc. Then she tells me that it is way too expensive and how she doesn't understand why I would pick such an expensive place. Yes the place is expensive but I was limited on places that can handle a large group so that we are not waiting in line to take our turn and a place that offers a nice lunch. I was able to get us a 20% on all treatments as a group and arrange for a day pass and lunch for $60 in case anyone didn't want or couldn't afford a treatment. The lunch is $25 and includes appetizer, meal, dessert, and a beverage and the ammenities include saunas, hot tubs, pools, gym and deluge showers.
She proceeded to tell me that I could have found a cheaper place and that I am being unreasonable asking my friends to spend this much and that she is not interested in "hanging out". But that this should be about spending time with me.
The shower that my friends and family are planning will include an evening event as well so there is an opportunity to "hang out" but this friend moved to SoCal and can't come up for that party.
She continued to argue with me about my choice stating that it is not her idea of a good time and she doesn't want to hag out with a bunch of people she doesn't know. I snapped and explained to her that her bachelorette party at a S.F. female impersonator club was not my idea of a good time either, which cost $65 pp and provided an array of questionable appetizers and no beverages and there was only ONE person there that I knew. She also informed me of the definition of a bachelorette party and how my plan doesn't meet those requirements and that if I really wanted to spend time with her that I would have chosen a more affordable place.
I responded with, "If you really wanted to spend time with me then you would find something on the menu that you can afford and come."
This is the same "friend" that I posted about before. I really wish I could rescind my wedding invitation at this point!!!
Happily Married Since December 18th, 2010!!
