Well, I've Gone & Hit Send

About my last post.

First, I think Hanlie is right. I really don’t think The Bride even made the connection. Why would she? She’s been pretty clueless about a lot of things lately and I’m sure what she said in her email made absolutely ZERO impression on her.

So, on the encouragement of a lot of you out there namely Shelly, Cammy, and Juice I went and sent this to her:

Speaking of going out of town... Did you book your trip to your cousin’s wedding? I know you were balking at the $1200, but in reality, that’s not that bad. Just our airfare to come out to DC was that, so if you can do your whole trip for that rate, I think that’s pretty good. And besides, I know you appreciated everyone travelling to your wedding and I’m sure it would mean a lot for your cousin for you to go to hers.

It was the nicest way I could tell her what I really wanted to say.

I think that was a very tactful reply!

Juice said...

I agree - nicely put!

Teresa said...

Nicely put, she should have gotten that subtle hint.

Good for you! Very polite but to the point. Can't wait to hear the response! If I read that, I would go "Doh. She's right!"

Hanlie said...

Very good response!

Shelley said...

Perfect! I am so proud of you for bringing it to her attention!

great response and, I fear, a nicer one than Id have sent.

Aleta said...

You handled that VERY well. I'm impressed. Most people would have called her a number of things for that type of behavior. Kudos to you!

Gigi said...

Well put! I could never have done it with as much tact.
