So Rude!

Friday, June 07, 2013

My oldest daughter has a good friend who is a bit older than she is. Therefore, everytime my daughter needs a ride to and from school this delightful young lady has assisted. We have helped with gas money and gave a nice Christmas gift, also we are intending on giving her a generous graduation gift.
My daughter recently commented that her friend had never been for Dim Sum, so could we take her pal with us next time we go and we said we'd be delighted. My husband asked if it could be set up for this Sunday. My girl sent her invite and then we got the response. Hmpph!
Another friend of my daughters, but only casually, due to a 9 year age difference, drove Mary and her friend home from rehearsals and then both girls ambushed her with the request that she be invited also! Have you ever heard of such gall? The other girl is 26 freakin' years old! Do not put a 17 year old in such an awkward position! My girl was so upset and my husband, who is usually generous to a fault was furious!
We wanted to cancel the whole thing right there, but that put Mary in an awkward position, so we said since the other children were not allowed to bring their friends, it wouldn't be fair for Mary to bring 2 friends. So now it is just us going and my girl is looking at her dear friend in a new light. Sadly, these are both nice young ladies, just lacking in common courtesy.

    My late husband had a friend that would invite himself to every place that we would go and then expect to have him to himself and not spend time with me and he also did it to other people too and he is in his forties.

    People nowadays don't think nothing of inviting themselves to everything. It's just totally rude and inconsiderate to all. I'm sorry you and your daughter were put into this situation. emoticon

    You are SO right about some of this generation (hopefully, I have taught my kids better). You reminded me of the son of a friend of mine. He was on break at work, and two young ladies who also work there came in and said to him, "You're a guy, so you are supposed to buy us ice cream." He said, "Well, maybe if you acted like ladies, then I would."

    It never ceases to amaze me how this generation and some from the one just before rewrite the rules of polite society. I've taken a child to the movies who's family could not afford such a luxury to be informed when the movie was over I was going to take her back in and let her watch it again. She also pointed out she saw that I had money in my purse. I had no problem dressing her down about her rudeness and she was never invited again. I'm sorry your daughter's friends have not learned what is expected in polite society. emoticon

    Rude as it is, this can be a learning/growing experience for your daughter.
