Party Foul: Hostess No Show

I was invited to happy hour yesterday afternoon. According to the email, it was a meet and mingle event. Only the gal who was introducing and organizing everyone ended up bailing! Not showing up to a party you are hosting is NOT okay, and should be considered a major party foul. If you schedule an event and something comes up, be sure to notify all of your guests or designate the hostess duties to a friend. What do you guys think? Is canceling at the last minute better than being a hostess flake?

At least let everyone know your bailing...but still pretty bad.

Disrespectful. I would've just left the party. I mean, if you're going to go through the trouble of planning a meet and greet, shouldn't you be there to start things up?

How incredibly rude and disrespectful. Cancelling at the last minute (((with a real reason))) is far better then no showing to a event/party one arranged.

If the hostess doesn't show up to her own party, she better be in the hospital bleeding for it to be remotely acceptable. That is so rude. Cancelling at the last minute with a lame excuse is unacceptable in my opinion. You better have a good one or it will be considered rude also because it ist tells me something better came along in the meantime.

Rude & wrong.. I would have rather had a last minute cancellation then not showing up..the reason you all attended was because of her.. boo!

That is just SO wrong. At least she could've told people she couldn't make it. I've had that happen twice with the same person, now I tell her to call me when she gets to the bar and THEN I'll go.

How weird would that be for the people who showed up?

i think both are equally bad but cancelling last minute is a tad bit better if there was a REALLY good excuse...

That's so rude! Someone I know organized a getaway for herself and a group of friends who didn't really know each other, and then she bailed the morning of the trip. (She didn't feel like getting out of bed. :bored: ) It actually ended up being fun but we spent the first day dissing her :P

I'd like to think that at least someone there knew enough of everyone that they could have played back-up, even if it was unexpected... But I doubt that I'd attend any other functions by said hostess... unless it was just a fluke...

Canceling at the last minute is infinitely better than flaking on something you put together. Either's rude... but it's more rude to just leave people hanging- especially since it's a meet and greet.
