That shits me. People who don’t have common courtesy really are the lowest of the low. I personally don’t say anything to these people, ever again. I ignore them and make it very obvious that they’re pieces of shit. Not necessarily the most mature or adult thing to do but I don’t believe there are any excuses to reach adulthood without basic manners.
Send them a message but be polite. "Hi it was disappointing not seeing so and so at my sons party if next time you are unable to make it a text message would be appreciated so I don't have to pay for extra people. Thank you." Something along those lines as your moving you really have nothing to lose.
I accidentally forgot to rsvp for a party recently. My child obviously didn't go. I actually completely forgot about the party altogether. I found the invite at the bottom my childs bag after the fact. I felt rotten. I texted the parent and apologized and bought the birthday kid a very small gift for my child to give her. My own child was distraught she didn't get to go. Point being I felt terrible for not rsvping but to say you are coming and not turning up at all when it has been paid for, with not so much as a text is a whole new level of rude. I don't think OP is overreacting at all. $150 is a lot to throw away.
It would be very frustrating but I think you sound a little worked up. Just give yourself some time to calm down before you make any decisions to say anything.
Unfortunately there's not really anything you can do about it now. Just let it go and take the lesson into the future.
Yes, it sucks. Yes, it's frustrating. But there's not really anything you can do so don't waste any more time being caught up on it.
I’d send them a text saying my son was disappointed they couldn’t come but that your son is looking forward to receiving his birthday present at school tomorrow 😂
This is just so rude! There is no excuse at all to not rsvp or send a txt to say you aren’t coming! Everyone is around their phone!
I would just ignore them and let your boy make new friends where he is moving to.
It’s such an effort and time consuming job organising parties these days.
I’m new to it all this year as my daughter stated full-time school she hasn’t been invited to a few which sux (but I understand not everyone can)
Good luck and it sux u wasted ur money!
