Friends of the family recently had an engagement party with a wishing well with some spiel on the invite about the present not being tax deductible (poor taste, much?) of which they bragged afterward about how much they raked in from having the party (parents paid for food, guests paid for drinks so they didn't spend a thing).
Fast forward and my brother receives a text message inviting him and his girlfriend to their christmas BBQ this weekend. "Cost is $ 12.50 per head to go towards meat and "the like", please bring a salad, own drinks and a chair". Seriously, $ 12.50? What is with the 50 cents?
Anyway, our other friend came over and we ask if he received a text inviting him to the BBQ... and he did... at a cost of $ 5 per head! He showed us the text and it was like it was copied, but they altered the fee per head.
Would you say anything?
Thankfully we didn't get invited. We aren't particularly close with them and didn't invite them to our wedding.
