To think that the bride's been cheeky here!

Alright, so there's a girl I met at uni who's now getting married. We're not close at all, but she's been very kind and invited me to her wedding. Evening only.

As the wedding is hours away, there's only one hotel close by with ridiculous rates, and I'd only be invited from 8:30pm anyway, I'm planning on not going. I went to go and click the 'sorry, can't make it' option on her RSPV website when I saw the ride share list on there.

I've been put down to drive (what appears to be) one of her elderly relatives from my hometown. Never offered this, have never met the elderly relative in question, haven't really spoken to the bride about the wedding at all confused Messaged another friend who's been invited to evening early and is down on the list to rideshare with someone elderly, same thing with her!

I've never declined an invitation so fast. Not sure if I've been invited as a friend or because I've got a car and happen to be from the same place as her relative!

Wow. Super cheeky.

Dear oh dear. Way to make you feel wanted in your own right!!

Hugely cheeky if it's actually been said you will be driving the other person.

Ooooohh wooowww. These are my favourite type of cf-ery threads! Can't wait to see if the bride says anything to you about your decline!

Brilliant. I never would have thought of this level of cheekiness !

McTufty Sun 15-Apr-18 15:54:45

Fuck me even by Mumsnet standards of cheeky fuckers that’s quite something.

Well done for declining.

That's a new level of cheeky sod!

Uggie Sun 15-Apr-18 15:55:12

How can you tell from the list that she's elderly?

CircleSquareCircleSquare Sun 15-Apr-18 15:56:13

Presumably because it’s a relative you are also expected to drive her down for the ceremony but not attend yourself?

ILikeMyChickenFried Sun 15-Apr-18 15:56:51

Wow. That is a whole new standard of cheekiness!

This will be all over the DM tomorrow

Uggie The name is a very old lady name. I'm assuming it's not a toddler who's got a revival of the name.

CircleSquareCircleSquare I'm assuming so! Either that or the relative has been put on evening only too!

Cagliostro Sun 15-Apr-18 15:57:53

That’s amazing. I wonder if she will message you when she sees you aren’t going

MrsMozart Sun 15-Apr-18 15:58:26

That's impressive cheeky fuckwittery.

Is the bride to be referred hereafter, herein, and therefore as CFB?

Flockoftreegulls Sun 15-Apr-18 15:58:33

Blimey that is cheeky. I facilitated some lifts for people to my wedding as it was a couple of hours from my home town but I didn't ask until they had accepted the invite, they were all invited to the whole shebang and I rang to ask the drivers if it was OK and made all the arrangements for the person getting the lift to make their way to the lift givers house so there was very little inconvenience.
Your "friend" is a CF.

I know it's not really funny, but I'm laughing at the idea of this!

RavenclawRealist Sun 15-Apr-18 15:59:25

Massively cheeky! But I have to admit I'm kind of impressed with that level of planning and cheek!!

ItsNachoCheese Sun 15-Apr-18 15:59:30

She wins cheeky fucker olympics for sure grin

BananasAreTheSourceOfEvil Sun 15-Apr-18 15:59:46

I love it. This is fantastic! Im going to start inviting all my friends over for tea and mark them down to pick up the kids from school on their way down!! grin

Cheeky mare!

whywhywhywhywhyyy Sun 15-Apr-18 16:00:03

Don't worry OlennasWimple, I've been cackling over it. Imagine being on this level grin

MrMeSeeks Sun 15-Apr-18 16:00:08

Who does this???

Hortonlovesahoo Sun 15-Apr-18 16:00:41

A friend tried to do this for her wedding but it painfully backfired when she forgot to tell elderly relatives / friends that the ride was no longer available. She ended up being over 30 people short in the evening!

She was very angry and actually had the gall to call up the people she nominated (unknowingly) for lift shares for their rudeness. Listening to her at the reception was quite painful.

blackteasplease Sun 15-Apr-18 16:01:22

Amazing! So cheeky!

EggysMom Sun 15-Apr-18 16:01:48

Is your friend who is also on the ride share list, going to decline too?
