Re: Need a shoulder...
In Response To: Re: Need a shoulder... ()

FANTASTIC is an understatement! How were you able to pull off planning a 3-day reunion and people only have to pay $35!? C'mon..share your secrets! :)

As far as your aunt's situation...been there before. Had people to assume that their reunion fees cover the reunion AND the hotel room for three nights. You have to wonder what is going through their minds, but you discover that their comprehension level is probably not the best, so you deal with it and move on. You can not let these incidents with several family members get the best of you. And trust me, people will push the envelope on your patience, but you have to say to yourself, "OK..You probably don't even know any better, so I ain't gonna let your actions and your poor thought process increase my blood pressure." :)

Prepare for this too....you may even have folk to show up at the reunion without booking their rooms. And they are indeed on the mailing list. So they received the correspondences concerning hotel room bookings and the deadline to get the discounted rates. However, they will fail to read that part and think they'll be OK once they get to the reunion. And then they will have the gall to say that things are unorganized. But like I said, just say the aforementioned sentence in your head and move on w/ the planning. :)
