Friday hubby calls from work and says that *so-and-so* (another guy at work) and his wife have invited us over for Sunday evening.
I told him that was nice, but we were going to be at the birthday party, remember?
Oh, yeah, I forgot about that.
Now - here is where the question lies:
If I were the one at work I'd have immediately gone over or called over to the guy's office and told him that, hey, I forgot, but we have a party to attend at that same time, sorry.
Did he do that?
You are correct. He did not.
A few minutes ago I was looking for wrapping paper for the present and hubby says I guess I should call *so-and-so,* huh?
You haven't told him that we can't come yet?
What if they bought a bunch of food to cook or turned down plans of their own or something? You should have told him Friday.
Hubby: "He has my number, too."
Me: "Yeah, he used it to INVITE you. After that, it's on YOU."
I found the wrapping paper and left the room.
About 10 minutes later hubby comes in the living room:
"I told him we'd probably be there around 7:00 or so."
The party starts at 6:00. There will be dinner and general visiting and just relaxing to have a good time. They are planning on a bonfire AT DARK if weather allows. You know, 8:30-9:00 PM?
Excuse me while I go bang my head on the wall.
