The Question Club
1. You invite a close friend to your SO's birthday party. They are unable to make it for various (but plausible) reasons, like they had to work that night, would probably be too tired afterwards, don't have time to find a costume (if it's a costume party), etc. etc. Your birthday is coming up next month. They have the same work schedule as they did for your SO's birthday. |
Do you invite this friend to go to your party?
2. You and your SO are finally getting married! As you plot out the guest list and seating charts for the wedding reception, you ask your (single) brother if he will be bringing anyone special. He says no, that his formal invitation doesn't need to say "plus guest" or anything of the like, just be addressed to him.
However, on the day of the wedding rehearsal (your brother is the best-man for the wedding for either you or your spouse), he brings along a girl that resembles that Dead Russian HookerTM that you've seen on Law and Order a few times, and dressed for the part. Your brother introduces Dead Russian HookerTM as his guest for the wedding. Understandably, people are quite shocked at DRH's skimpy outfit and penchant for critiquing other guests at the top of her voice.
Do you confront your brother about this new guest? Do you tolerate her presence? How would you go about removing this guest from your wedding plans if you wanted to do so?
3. You have moved across the state to attend college. A good friend of yours remained in the town you two grew up in attending college there. One weekend, having nothing better to do, this good friend offers to come pick you up from across state and bring you back to your hometown, at no expense to you. You don't make any other plans during your stay with this good friend, they simply offered to pick you up and drive you home. However, you have made plans with other people, but none whom your good friend has any social standing with.
Do you invite the friend picking you up to hang out? Is it out of what you feel is obligation, or because you want to spend more time with this friend?
Note: These are purely hypothetical! :D I am too young to get married and get butthurt by a hooker.
