Wiggle room: It’s one of the perks of the digital RSVP. Still, if you’re going to commit, the least you can do is follow through like the lady you are.

As these eight RSVP faux pas remind us, it’s a slippery slope from “Yes” to “Let’s never invite her again.”

Saying You’ll Be There When, Really, There’s a 9 Percent Chance

Also known as the aspirational RSVP. Sure, you earned points for the fastest reply time (and, come on, general enthusiasm), but speed doesn’t count if you bail.

rsvp8

RSVP’ing Without a Guest, and Then Arriving with Your Fussy 2-Year-Old

“Kids don’t impact the head count,” you say. Maybe not, but an uninvited crying toddler sure does impact the fun. Bottom line: Give the hostess a heads-up, mmkay?

rsvp7

Volunteering to Bring the Dip, and Then Showing Up with Dessert

Look, the person who brought the chips was counting on you, and now everyone has to eat naked Tostitos. Hope you’re happy.

rsvp2

OR WORSE, EMPTY-HANDED

You’re a grown-ass woman. At least bring a bottle of wine.

rsvp3

OR MUCH, MUCH WORSE, WITH FOOD THAT STILL NEEDS TO BE PREPARED

Too many cooks + the kitchen = RSVP fail.

RSVP

Replying All with a List of Reasons You’ll Be Late

We get it, Ms. Popular. You’re double-booked. No need to rub our faces in it.

rsvp5

Or Replying All with a List of Special Requests

OK, so you’re avoiding carbs this month. Eat around them.

Texting

RSVP’ing Yes, Then Texting to Change It to Maybe, Then No--Then Oh Wait, We’re Back to Yes Again

Ah, the weekend waffler. You know who you are.
