Latinos HATE to R.S.V.P. In invitations, it is meant for one to respond if they’ll be attending the event or not. R.S.V.P. is French for Répondez s’il vous plaît, meaning “Reply if it pleases you” or “please reply”. Latinos hate to R.S.V.P. for the following reasons:
- ♥We’re not sure if we’re going, because we may get invited to a better party, and then we’ll feel terrible canceling at the last minute (we hate giving others false hopes).
- ♥There’s a limitation as to how many people can attend with us (for those who put “1″ all we have to say is, “Reeally?”). That’s not going to work.
- ♥We do not like the person enough to get them a gift.
- ♥When they add in fine print “NO children allowed.” Well, uh, that’s a no-go.
And last, but not least, we prefer to Show-Up! Or as my sister always says, “Yo voy si tengo tiempo, cuando me vean ahi, sabran que llegue!”
