    Default WWYD- no rsvp

    DS's birthday is on Saturday. He's going to an arcade where they have a minimum number of guests to have a party there, so that's how many we've invited (6 friends). 1 family have not rsvp'd even though I've chased them up 3 times to find out if they are coming (via text and in person where she said 'yes I got your message I'll rsvp soon- I get that she may have needed to check) over the past week.
    The twist in the tale is that over summer this woman seems to have decided she wants nothing to do with me (I honestly have no clue why) so I doubt I'll be able to catch her at school or that she will answer her phone because she is actively avoiding me.
    What do I do? Regardless of if they come or not I'll have to pay for that spot, I'd like the chance ASAP to offer the spot to someone else. Do I text and say 'I'm assuming you're not coming so I'm giving an invite to someone else'? I don't want to sound like I'm being b!tchy, I just don't want to waste the money and I'd also like DS to have the chance to actually have 6 friends there.
    Ugh. I hate drama. Please help me deal with this in the most drama free way possible!

    I would send a message and ask for her to let you know tonight if their child is coming or not. If no reply give the spot away.

    I'd advise you to text her once more and say something along the lines of 'hey, sorry to annoy you again but DS's party is really soon and I wanted to know if your DS was coming? If you could get back to me tomorrow that'd be awesome'. If she doesn't get back to you - offer the spot out and send her another message letting her know that unfortunately because she didn't RSVP you assumed he wasn't coming.

    Honestly I don't have time for people who can't rsvp to a child's party. Honestly. He can either go or he can't. She shouldn't need 4 reminders to RSVP.

    Yep, ask one more time and give an absolute deadline and if nothing is heard you will ask someone else

    The message I sent this morning was -'hi there, just trying to finalize the numbers for DS's party as I need to let the centre know. If you could let me know today that'd be great ' sooo, actually looking at the message I'm Scott free, right? I sent it to her and one other person (who was only invited the other day because someone else rsvp'd no) who messaged me back within the hour. Ffs, how hard is it to send a text 😡

    If you can afford it, I would invite another kid and risk paying for an extra place

    Hi FearlessLeader, your last message wasnt 'final' enough. If you want to extent an invite to another guest you need to send a further message with a definite deadline. The other option is to let it slide and they may or may not show up.
