to be a bit annoyed

I am probably being over sensitive but here goes my first trip to the lions den!

I live on a new build estate with no family nearby. There are a few mums on the estate who regularly get together for coffee on a Wednesday or Thursday. It was my turn to host this week so sent the usual text and it turns out most of them have arranged to in out for the day together. I don't drive but the place they are going to is pretty easy to get to by public transportand i never ask for lifts, i choose not to drive so would never expect people to ferry me around.

I think I'm upset because I'm the one who introduced most of them and built up the group and suddenly I'm being excluded.

I'll see most of them at baby group on Friday and just need to vent i guess before then and ask do i say anything or just take the hint?!

Oh thats a bit mean not inviting you! How rude.

I dont blame you for being hurt.......bloody meanies!!!!

That's just mean, they're mean meanies

I'm not sure I would bother saying anything to them though - if that's what they're like (mean meanies) then you're better off without them.

If you live near me (East Yorkshire) I'll meet you for a coffee :)

What a horrible thing to do especially as it's on a day you would usually be meeting.

I wonder whether one person arranged it and the others didn't know you hadn't been invited?


YouaretooniceNOT · 06/04/2011 16:37


Life is waay too short and say to them where was my invite?

See what their response is and let us know.

Spiteful or maybe they thought somebody had already sent you an invite? - is that possible?

I'd ask them where your invite was when you have them all together. It'll take guts though. YANBU.


kaj32 · 06/04/2011 16:52

No don't think i was missed off the text as when i sent a message asking about coffee i wasn't invited.

Think i may just have to make myself a bit less available (I'm always willing to help people out not expecting anything in return) and pull back a bit.

Oh well, their loss, i shall find some new people to share yummy homemade cake with!

Thanks everyone x

I'm without my car atm and a friend has invited my group to theirs for coffee and the host has just offered to come and pick me up several miles away, another close by is taking me (she offered), that's what true friends do! get some new friends kaj.

That's the plan solo Wink

Luckily a couple of friends start maternity leave soon so I'll have a social life again!
