You Can't Be Serious

In the "You Can't Be Serious" / Things I Hate category of the day, let's talk about RSVP'ing to a wedding. First tip: If you're invited to a wedding, YOU SHOULD RSVP. Even if it's a NO. Just give an answer. Be polite. The couple obviously cared enough about you to invite you; the least you can do is RSVP an answer.
Second tip: If, for example, you don't RSVP and the wedding is rapidly approaching and the bride has to hunt you down to see if you can come or not, don't give an answer that will make her wonder why she invited you at all....or even why she's friends with you. For the love of God, make up an excuse. Family emergency, medical procedure, whatever. MAKE SOMETHING UP.
What prompted this rant, you ask? The other day I had to hunt down one of my oldest friends (which I shouldn't have had to do in the first place) and was rewarded by receiving the "I can't make it to your wedding because I'm getting my car smogged that day." ARE YOU FREAKING KIDDING ME?!?!?! It's bad enough that I've heard several medical reasons (which, of course, are unfortunate, but understood), an "I'm moving earlier that week," and three Halloween carnival excuses, but now this? Are you for real? Just make something up. It's not that hard.

I know I'm not the one you had to track down (nor am I your longest friend), but you got my RSVP, right? :)
