Loyalty

So I was talkin to -1- the other day, and I was told
that the little caesars pizzas out in Michigan are
only 5.00... Ours out here are 5.99, with tax, that
comes out to 6 something.. I feel like I'm getting
jipped out of a dollar. Call the alderman! JK.
I think one of the things that makes you feel like
people aren't really down for you is if you throw a
party, and out of all the people that you invite,
only 2 show up.. I mean inviting a good group of 20,
and only a couple 2 come to show support. It kinda
makes you feel like you have unreliable friends,
or maybe that small ounce of doubt in ya head says
"maybe I'm not that popular".. lol. Don't lie, I'm
sure its happened to you before. Shoot it happened
to me on my 16th birthday.

We had a party and everything, but because
someone else was having a party and there was
liquor there, that trumped my party smooth out lol
. But looking back at it, I remember telling myself
I wasn't gonna F wit the folks who didn't come to
my function again. I don't think I did either. And of
course the folks who didn't come hit you the next
few days later on some "see what had happened
was" type stuff, but by that time your minds set
and you don't care to hear it. Its funny how people
do other people who are there so called friends.
Loyalty is a dish that is served much less
frequently these days..

Ever happened to you?

Little Caesars "Hot and Ready's" are a quick fix here in Michigan ( the D to be exact). I just hate that the "hot and readys " arent always hot and ready..sometimes takin fa ever, lol.

Yea it has. I have this one friend, she was always all up under me when she didn't have a man and now that she does, I never see this chick anymore. I invite her out all the time, and she never shows. So now when I do see her like today, things are strained because I just don't feel like dealing with her.

U are not alone in the Loyaless club :/

Yeah a.m. I know about that type a chick I think there is one in every sista's life. As for you swag I put that pic up with you and PrettyGirl about 3 posts ago and you still have yet to bring your "loyal" ass over to see it...BOO!

Oh and I remember that shit...Didn't the sissy's try to make it better?

Desy said...

naw- the few events i held actually had too many people at it...

however, it happened to a friend of mine. i planned it for her (a surprise party) and invited over 25 people... 2 (including me) were there... but it reflected her friendship with people...

@ Swag
Has it happened to me???

HELLLL YEAH!!!!

Two years ago, me and my crew tried to throw a Christmas party in our hometown in South Carolina. We marketed it and promoted it like crazy. We sent emails. We handed out fliers. We even paid for a radio spot. We had tons of food (free) and liquor. We talked to people and everybody was like "yeah...we'll be at your party." I mean, it wasn't like there was anything else going on that night. We expected a crowd of at least 200 people

We had 43 folks show up. And I'm still kinda pissed at those country-no good time havin'-stupid mofoz!!!! LMAO!!!

If i sound bitter...I am. LOL!!!

*sigh...thanks for lettin me vent about that shit*

haaaaa

Stew said...

that has never happened to me on that level. me and my boys hosted plenty parties, and while some where more packed than others, we always had a good turn out.

but maybe that was because everyone knew they were drinking free all night.

Free food and cheap liquor. You can't beat that. We had chips, fried chicken, and we even had cake! You know black folk love cake! Lmao

Um yea - it's happened to all of us at one point or another. It's a form of dissapointment. You know, one of those essential elements to life. How great would you be if you were NEVER dissapointed in life?

Monie said...

The only major party that I have ever thrown was my 25th bday party. Thankfully, all my close friends showed up but some people I invited from work didn't. It was cool, though. I can't remember half the night anyway so I didn't care that much. LOL

Charece said...

That's never happened to me and that's probably because I'm the party goer and not the party thrower. But if I ever did throw a party those itches better bring their asses.
