Ugh, I disappeared for a long time again. Came back, and had a hard time finding where to even click to post a new entry!
Guys, I need to rant. Because I am annoyed, and Ben does not understand why I am annoyed.
We've made these two friends here-- Alex and Wylinda (L for short). Alex is Ben's coworker, and they share nerderies, so it didn't take long before we were sharing nerderies together.
Fast forward a few months, and Alex and L ask us to be in their wedding party. We happily agree. The wedding is May 2. Yes, 2 days from now.
Mid January, L asks me to go wedding dress shopping with her and the other bridesmaid. I agree. She's on a really strict budget-- she wants to spend less than 200 dollars for the dress and tailoring. She happened to find a clearanced out floor sample at David's Bridal that was 99 dollars and fit her perfectly. One problem-- she forgot her debit card and they won't hold the dress until she can come back and get it. I offer to pay for the dress, and then she can pay me back that weekend (we all had plans to hangout). That was January, and I still haven't been paid back.
We haven't heard much from them about wedding details, other than that they couldn't find a church to do the wedding for free, so they were just going to JOP. They never sent out wedding invitations, so they're not even sure anyone will show up to the reception.
The kicker has been this current ordeal over the bachelor's/bachelorette's party. We started asking 2 or 3 weeks ago for details (or at least to be put in contact with whoever was planning) and they said they didn't know anything. This past Friday, we ask again and L tells me that the bachelorette party will be Tuesday night-- the night of my night class-- but that she doesn't know when or where, and will have Alex tell Ben on Monday. Monday comes, Ben asks Alex, and Alex says he has no idea (Alex is the go-between because L has no phone or internet with which to contact anyone). Ben tells Alex to please text me as soon as he knows when/where so I can be there.
Alex texts me Tuesday night, half an hour after the bachelorette party has started, asking if I'm there. I respond saying no, no one has yet to tell me anything about when or where it's at. That's when I'm told it started a half an hour before that, and he still doesn't know where.
Now L is posting passive aggressive facebook statuses about how sad she is that she doesn't have better friends, and Ben is telling me I could have tried harder to get information.
I cannot wait for this wedding to be over.
