To feel a bit miffed?

Neighbours 3 doors down are having a party in the garden (a posh one as they are pseudo posh). We have been invited to the last two, but not this one. Our neighbours opposite have and just had to walk obviously past us, saying hello politely as they did. I think it was something to do with the fact I was a bit tearful at the last party (young baby, no sleep, general stress with oh). Should I be bothered? There ay be other reasons.... Or it may be a more select party. Who knows!

I wouldn't. They either each assumed the other mentioned it, or they're the kind of people who like playing silly childish games over who's allowed to come to their parties.

Go do something more fun and rise above :)

Quickly get lots of friends & booze round and have a spontaneous non-posh party with lots of noise.
Maybe even karaoke!

Oh I like that idea. Karaoke! I have decamped to the beach where I can't hear them wittering

Now they're playing cliff Richard very loudly. Is that deserving of an asbo do you think?

Cliff Richard?

Id be fucking thrilled i wasnt invited and do not talk to them from now on. Cliff RIchard should not be inflicted on anyone

I suppose it depends how your being 'tearful' at the last party actually affected their evening. If you had a bit of a moment and went home early then they are being unreasonable. However, if you burst into tears and then spent the evening moaning about your husband and complaining about being tired then I can understand them not wanting to invite you.

Cliff Richard?

Just think, if you were there you'd be trying to make your excuses right now. Lucky escape, OP.


helenthemadex · 26/05/2013 19:15

sounds like the sort of party I would be very glad not to be invited to, do you have any Guns n Roses CD's?


cozietoesie · 26/05/2013 19:19

It doesn't sound (the 'pseudo posh' remark) as if you like them that much. Do you recall perhaps having a couple of gins at the last party and telling them some home truths? Wink

Either way, don't worry about it. Just enjoy your evening and think what bliss it is not having to stand around making conversation.


Chottie · 26/05/2013 19:20

OP you had a lucky escape there. Sit on the beach and relax instead.


LoveBeingUpAt4InTheMorning · 26/05/2013 19:22

Sounds like a lucky escape


foslady · 26/05/2013 19:22

Agree with Chottie ! I also work by the rule of 'I wouldn't want to be a member of any club that wouldn't want to have me.......'

Very lucky escape!
It might have made you cry again if you'd been there!
