RSVP - Répondez s'il vous plaît
For those of you who don't know but do care, when you see RSVP on an invitation it means please reply so that the host can plan and supply enough eats and drinks.
For those of you who know what RSVP means but don't care, come or don't come. The host will just have to adapt for your self-centerness.
You would think if someone cared enough about you to want to share with you this upcoming event in their life it would not be too much to ask if you are coming or not coming, for the sole purpose of making sure there will be enough food to go around and to assure you will be comfortable during the event.
And there will be some who RSVPed they will come and then don't. The host spent his or her hard earned money for their enjoyment and they just don't show up? tch tch. Shame on them.
Ironically, in this case two wrongs make a right. The ones that RSVPed that that would come and don't will be feeding those that didn't RSVP and do show up. Hopefully it will balance itself out.
