    EXPECTING a guest to do a job at your event is a bit rude.

    if you've been ASKED beforehand however, and you agreed to it, to then flake out on your commitment is rude to the host.

    They knew we wouldn't be attending the church on the same day they gave us the invite.

    I don't know these people long at all, only met the lady at play group.

    My husband had an issue with the lady's husband as he was sending me messages on Facebook late at night. He was told not to send me messages but still continued.

    A couple days before the event he rang me and told me since I'm not going to the church if I can go to the hall earlier and just tell people where to sit p, like the table.

    I also told him and his wife not to message me and if the husband wants something to message or ring my husband.

    My husband finds it disrespectful if another man if messaging his wife at all hours.

    So after the baptism I got a thank you for the gift and a happy birthday for me.

    That's it.....normally the lady will talk to me 2-3 times a day and have a chat at night via messenger.

    Maybe this is why you haven't heard much? You told both of them not to message you?

    How late was the husband messaging you, was it all via Facebook and what was he messaging you about?

    Trying to work out if the other hubby was being inappropriate or your hubby was being over controlling. If it was all via Facebook and the questions were brief and innocent I wouldnt have worried. Facebook is a 24/7 tool and you only check messages when you want to. I have relatives overseas messaging me all the time at all hours because of the time difference. It doesn't matter because I only check the messages when I want to.

    Yes!

    You've either got to be honest and say no or turn up on time.

    I'd say if there is an issue and there are no more details missing from this story, then she'd be feeling standoffish because you committed to something, then didn't follow through and thus far haven't acknowledged it.

    If you care about the friendship, I'd bring it up and apologise for being late, personally.

    In all honesty, from what you have told us so far, I think your attitude and behavior has put her off and that's why she is being aloof. You say you used to speak multiple times a day which gives the impression you were fairly close but then comment that you have only met her at playgroup so she shouldn't have given you a job on the day. I think she probably thought you were close enough friends, hence asking you to help, and you saying you would but then not, combined with telling her and her husband not to message you has sent the signal to her that you are not interested in a friendship with her. That's the impression I would get if I was her.

    But... I also wouldn't think it was rude if a friend asked me to help out, so we probably see things quite differently.

    I met her at play group last year.

    The msgs were private not public and I won't repeat them

    I asked her to tell her husband not to msg me not her.

    We didn't have d and m's to be that close.

    I feel comfortable with all this, I wasn't comfortable with the husband sending me messages. Plus he is on his phone all the time. Not even my closest friends and best friends husbands sends me msgs privately.

    I did mention if I get to the hall on time I will do it, I didn't promise I would. I hate using the word hall in this as it wasn't a hall.
