Being honest I did not want to go anyway.
Its her daughters party today, she is 5. I brought her some clothes and lost the reciept. I whatsapped my friend and asked what time she wants me round which she ignored. If you don't want me to come why not just say.

I probably am being unreasonable. Should I give the clothes?

She is probably too busy organising and hosting to message you back. Have you got dcs or were you planning on attending the party on your own?

Do you not think she just might be busy/stressed and read but forgot to reply?
I do that even when I'm just sitting on the sofa.

What time was the party ? If she invited you why not just turn up

Or did she not tell you a start time previously

On the day if dd's party I never have time to check my phone. She's probably busy getting ready for the party.

i phoned just now as well, I know it was afternoon sometime as she hired a bouncy castle and a pony. I don't know her address as she just moved 4 weeks ago.

what makes you think that your friend is ignoring you and does not want you to come to the party she invited you to rather than thinking it's the day of the party, she's likely really busy getting things organised, tidied, maybe wrapping stuff, putting decs up, doing food etc and either hasn't seen the message or took a look at it and meant to reply but got side tracked?

I mean, what would make you go aha, she's ignoring me and uninvited me as the most likely option? Does she have form for doing that?

A quick phone call would sort this out.

xpost, if she's not answering the phone, then leave a message or put a message on her fb wall

or do you know any of the other invitees? You could ask them for the address.

How far away are you? Why not just go round for a bit?

(after getting the address from a mutual friend)

It's very unlikely she's ignoring you!

She's probably rushed off her feet.

sorry but i think the opposite of what everyone else thinks, yeah she probably is busy but surely she would have her phone in her pocket if she expecting lots of ppl to turn up for the party. ppl maybe ringing for directions, say they are going to be late or they cant make it.
if she dont return your call in the next hour i'd assume she really doesnt want you there and invited you to be polite hence not giving you her address

emmalimesmom Sat 28-May-16 16:21:51

oh and if you dont go take the clothes back and treat yourself
i hope im wrong cos its a mean thing to do

It's a bit odd to put out an invitation without stating the time or address though, isn't it?

Shannyfanny Sat 28-May-16 18:42:03

shes read the message on whatsapp. Is nearly 7 now take it i'm not invited.
She does kind of have a track record of doing stuff like this.

ThoraGruntwhistle Sat 28-May-16 18:51:25

Send another saying 'I assume I'm no longer invited. Have a good evening.'
The ignorant moo.

emmalimesmom Sat 28-May-16 19:03:36

bin her off, you dont want time wasters like her in your life.
when she messages you with whatever excuse , leave it a couple of days before you answear.
nasty thing to do to someone

Alisvolatpropiis Sat 28-May-16 19:06:15

She sounds really nice hmm

A birthday party for a five year old would almost certainly be over by now. I'm sorry OP, you've not been treated well. flowers
