Simply put "...and she won't take no for answer" hmm

Betternc4this Thu 01-Aug-13 17:59:05

Ooh that's me staying in tonight then !!!!

sad cah that I am.

TidyDancer Thu 01-Aug-13 18:00:04

The wedding is in about three weeks.

Morgause Thu 01-Aug-13 18:00:12

That would be nice, thanks, Cookingmonster.

<certainly not place marking, just enjoying popcorn>

BalloonSlayer Thu 01-Aug-13 18:00:41

Well that's it in a nutshell nannynewo.

Except the friend doesn't seem to get why she has been rude, won't take no for an answer and has now got her sister to email Tidy to say she is "upset." grin

I don't know what your settings on MN are like but mine show the OP's posts as green. If you have that I'd suggest skimming through and just reading Tidy's posts which have the texts of the emails on them. And then join us all in breathless outrage . . . grin

Thanks BalloonSlayer I will check my settings out too! Oh she sounds horrid! Looking forward to the updates, hope this doesn't make me a meany!!

Please can we have a resolution to this tomorrow - I go in holiday then for 2 weeks without Internet, and the suspense will kill me!

( not shamelessly place marking at all, no, definitely not!)

have caught up and still in shock

i think stating the facts to the sister is the way to go

TidyDancer Thu 01-Aug-13 18:11:32

Oh yeah, the sister is getting a rundown of the facts and that's it. I'm not going to say I'm upset or anything like that, I think I just need to let her know exactly what's happened.

I do wonder if she suspects bridezilla is being bridezilla-ish as she hasn't accused me of anything, she has just requested to know what is going in as her sister is upset about it. It didn't come across as having a tone about it. It makes me think that perhaps I'm not the only one who has been subjected to some unreasonableness during this wedding!

TidyDancer Thu 01-Aug-13 18:12:21

what is going on

Bloody iPad making me look bad!

scarletforya Thu 01-Aug-13 18:13:04

Tidy could you just reply to the sister asking what has Gluezilla told her?

Before you go explaining yourself to a stranger......!

ArrowofApollo Thu 01-Aug-13 18:14:10

toffee please, Cookingmonster grin

Dear Sister of Gluezilla,

Sorry to hear your sister is upset, however I am confused as to why.
I made it very clear from the outset that I was not available to decorate her wedding venue.
I had booked the day off when I received a save the date card as was under the impression I was invited to the wedding itself.
However when your sister told me I wasn't invited (totally her prerogative), I cancelled my day off for a time when I needed it.
It was only after she told me I was not invited she asked me to decorate. I am sure you appreciate that this was rather impolite especially as I would have to give up one of my days off and pay for childcare.
I wish you luck helping her find an alternative decorator. As far as I am concerned the matter is closed.
I really do hope she has a lovely day.

Regards,

TD

I agree, OP, just a very factual email, and hopefully that will put an end to it. I cannot believe the bride's cheek, I think it is safe to say your friendship is over. You have been very dignified throughout. flowers I am guessing that the bride's sister was given a very different version of the story.

Groovee Thu 01-Aug-13 18:15:18

Nanny, friend emailed saying please let me know if you change your mind to help. Next thing Tidy knew, Gluezilla's sister had emailed wanting to know what was going on.

AncientPigeon Thu 01-Aug-13 18:15:26

Ive been following the threads and relaying it a bit to DH and even he's now coming in and asking if there's been any updates!

YouTheCat Thu 01-Aug-13 18:17:11

I am following with interest. grin

LittleBearPad Thu 01-Aug-13 18:19:20

Marking place as I can't believe this is still going on.

Picturepuncture Thu 01-Aug-13 18:20:03

I missed thread 2 but sounds interesting! Are you emailing or phoning the sister TD?

scarletforya Thu 01-Aug-13 18:20:04

I don't think you should explain yourself Tidy, turn it around and ask Gluezilla and sister to explain what is going on, or in the case of Gluezillas sister what she thinks is going on...

I wouldn't keep repeating myself and explaining over and over. I mean really, there comes a point where Gluezilla needs to explain HERself.

Also Gluezilla 'didn't think it was a big deal' about the decoration so why the hell is she now 'upset' ?

Put your foot down about this nonsense OP!

PerchedOnMyPeddleStool Thu 01-Aug-13 18:20:19

How many of you have an image of gluezilla?
In mine she has a crazed look in her eyes and flaring nostrils

Arrow's message at 18.14 is absolutely spot on. Clear, concise, no aggro or drama, no upset or indication that you're fucked off at all but very very clear as to why you won't help. Send that.

ooohh I'm getting married in about 3 weeks too. am I gluezilla?



no, no I'm fine. I haven't used any save the date cards, and not inviting many or disinviting any and the venue is decorating itself. I'm fine. as you were...

FruOla Thu 01-Aug-13 18:27:00

"^Am also happy to be involved in some weird kind of glue sniffing zombie flashmob"^

I'm tempted to join in grin

FruOla Thu 01-Aug-13 18:28:09

Oh damn, italics fail blush
