Your Child is Invited...

...to a birthday party.

It's for a fifteen year old.

Let's say a boy.

It involves "some fun" at a local Fun Place, followed by a spaghetti dinner at the boy's home.

Please RSVP.

And don't forget to bring $15 to contribute to all the "fun".

Please comment.

Is one expected to bring gifts to the fun, too?
This one sounds like a good letter to submit to Dear Prudence at slate.com

That's weird. Also Tacky. I'd deduct that "fun money" from the gift budget...

Hell to the No.

Nat The Rat said...

Oh, I'm sorry. . .I thought they were inviting YOU to a party. Sounds like they're making you part of the planning (as in. . pitch in for this please.) Tacky.

Ashley Dawn said...

Hmm. So. Really? Did like half the invite get lost- you know the half that like explains why they are bein' so tacky???? And maybe she should just ask you to like plan/decorate/chaperon/cleanup/finance the whole thing too... way spastic.

emily post would be crying right now. This is as bad as the wedding invite I just got that said so and so are older and well established and are not in need of regular wedding gifts, however, your finacial donations are welcome.
Or,
the wedding announcement that had the bride and groom registered at WElls Fargo with an attached account number.

What????!!!!! Lame. This is just SO wrong on so many levels. You know the term "living beyond your means"? Perhaps this is "partying beyond your means"?????

Geo said...

Forget the cover charge and just BYOB.

And to think, I've been paying for my own parties all this time...
