I'm a hypocrite today...
Wednesday, June 06, 2007
I am being a major hypocrite today. Here's why...



A week or two ago, I randomly received a message from my boss, asking if I wanted to go to the baseball game that night. Being that it was already 4pm, I figured someone bailed at the last minute, and he was trying to find a replacement. I had reservations about going, only because I was actually going to a baseball game the following evening. Two days in a row seems like I'm taking too much time off work. So the first thing I replied was "Well, who else is going?" My boss replied, "Ohhhh you're one of THOSE people. Isn't it good enough that I am going and I invited you?" I know he was joking around, but today I realize why he made that comment...

I'm throwing a BBQ for my birthday next weekend. I sent out an evite on Monday (4 days ago) and so far I have several responses, about a 2 to 1 ratio of yes vs. no. I didn't realize when you send out an evite you can actually see when the invitees open it. So here I am browsing through the list of "hasn't responded" and sure enough... almost everyone opened the invitation already. So here I am thinking "Well if they opened it, why haven't they responded yet?" Most of the invitees are my coworkers, some sitting next to me at this very moment. I turn to the girl next to me just now saying "Hey did you get my evite? Even if you can't go or don't know, can you please respond soon?" She said "I dunno yet. I wanna see who is going first."

Ah hah! There it is, the infamous phrase/question. I admit, I felt a tad annoyed by that. I shouldn't be, which is why I feel like such a hypocrite. I did give everyone until next Thursday to reply, so what's my problem? I dunno. I just think it's interesting that people do this. I do it, you probably do too. Why? Who knows. Maybe we're afraid to show up to social gatherings and not know anyone else? Maybe we just all procrastinate and don't want to give a final answer until the last minute? Or maybe no one really wants to come to my BBQ, hah!

    Hmm, I do that too sometimes. We'll be hypocrites together.

    And speaking of your BBQ...I don't know yet if I can come. It depends on how my week goes, since I have to drive to Vegas and back on Thurs. But I'll let you know. ;)

    Hey Holls... no pressure. I know how busy (and FAR) you are so no worries.

    Rowena... hi babe. I got the maroon 5 CD, so now you HAVE to come b/c I'm gonna play it at my party. lol

    Mormy - Hi! Yes, you are definitely invited, I sent the invitation to Will and I think he already responded, so I'll see you there! Yay!!!

    yes it does suck (the evite thing), but it is what it is.. people want to meet people, but they also want the comfort of having a backup in case hey maybe nobody is there to meet?
