Argh - Karen's Musings
Random Rambling
Lauren's already seen this since it's the exact text of the email I sent this morning. Please note that my synagogue's banquet is SUNDAY. Please note that the RSVP deadline was March 7th.

Yesterday when I sent the "final" numbers to the person coordinating with the caterer, I said I wasn't going to keep checking my email or answering my phone because we were DONE and it wasn't ALLOWED to change ANYMORE!

Last night I got an email that Mr. and Mrs. So-and-So are coming.

Drat. So I scurried around and figured it out with the person doing the seating and we found a place to put him and it worked. They were at a lousy table, but that's their problem for letting us know four days before the banquet.

I wrote back to the banquet chair saying, "Okay we were able to accomodate them, but this is it."

This morning I got ANOTHER EMAIL WITH ANOTHER PERSON COMING. Which, believe it or not, is working out to having to change around three tables.

You're too nice. Remind them of the reponse deadline and apologize kindly.

it's not my call to make, unfortunately.

The reason for the additional RSVPs isn't because the respondents tried to get in under the wire. It's because they were actively solicited by the banquet chairperson.

Then they can squeeze in at the table the banquet chair will be sitting at.

Just how clueless is this person?!

today we went from 15 people to 22 for our feast on sunday, with the rsvp deadline being march 10. needless to say we're buying 2 more chickens tomorrow.
