    You invite someone to eat with you, two weeks in advance. You buy extra food, do some preparation ahead of time (since you work it is easier) then the invitees wait until late in the evening , the night before to say they can't make it [​IMG]

    Not as rude as the morning of Thanksgiving calling to say you are bringing 3 more people...

    Let's hope your invitees are just ill or something...

    Unless they have a very good excuse such as illness, death in the family or such....



    Yeah, I'd say rude. Inconsiderate at the very least. [​IMG]

    The thing is, if it were me, I would consider it rude because we are very short on money and the money spent on the extra food could be better used elsewhere if I knew enough in advance. However, if they are ill, I would have to understand. You can't control illness.

    Then definatly rude.

    I know around here everything is tight. If we invited someone, spend extra money to make the meal, extra time with my wife being disabled... then they waited til the last minute to cancil, I'd be upset.
