Someone here, not really close to me, but just a friend, her son used to be my student who asked me to host her birthday on Tuesday. It is a small birthday party of 50 or so people and so I agreed, for a very minimal hosting fee actually because she is a friend. Now yesterday she texted me asking if we could meet and discuss things. She mentioned Sunday and so I asked where, and she mentioned a restaurant, so I said okay, what time, and she replied at 3 pm. So after that I summarized everything, gave the time, date and place of meeting and she said, "I will see. Please remind me about it." What? She was the one who invited me, set the time, place and date, and now it's me who will remind her? Isn't she insane? Now I am not going to do the reminding. She is old enough to know that she had set the date herself and that I wasn't the one who initiated this. I will appear at the agreed time and place, and see if she remembers her own plan.

A small birthday party - 50? Now that to me sounds like aggravation and hard work, I wouldn't call 50 people being a small gathering, but that's just me. Small party for me would be 4 to 6 people, a massive gathering would be 50! She does sound kind of crazy, I hope she doesn't give you too much problem and will pay you. I like to know where I stand with people if I doubt about them and the way they behave it will lead me to believe as to whether they will actually pay me!

Hi Wolfie! She actually pays because I also hosted her birthday last year. In our country which is a poor country, a party of 50 is considered small. Big parties are for 500 to 1,000. This must be the reason why we are poor. We are so fond of these lavish parties.

Sorry if I haven't responded to your other discussions, what with not receiving notifications I was kinda lost and isolated, hopefully I can catch up soon.

Well, that was a weird conversation that you had with that person? What was she thinking? Anyway, I hope that the party still goes on as planned.

Hi Jenny! It went on as planned but there were a lot of glitches. The sound system was acting up, it was raining, etc.

Crazy indeed, maybe she's thinking that you're the one who needs to be paid so you should be the one to come after it(just my opnion). Or maybe she has too much in her mind right now planning about the party and she just needs help..

Tell do it her something more important came up and you can't do it. she is not worth your bother, i dont think you need the money that much. she sounds like a scatter brain to me. I dont knpow what price you a greed on, so wghen you see her raise the price. i think the reason she wants to meet is to get you to work for less money. Tell me if im right. joe

You are right Cox. She is indeed a scatter-brained person. I have to be clear about everything tomorrow. Good luck to me.

I would never think 50 people were a small party. that is just crazy and I hope she shows up. I know I have asked people to remind me of stuff because I have memory problems. I have had this for years now. I can't remember to eat most days and that is terrible. my stomach does not growl so,like today,I remembered to eat after 2pm. good luck.

Sound like to me, she is trying to get out of, paying you this fee,that you charged for hosing the party, she didn't for get anything, if you have to remind her of anything, then you shouldn't bother hosting the part, let her give the part herself for free, lets see if she can remember that.

Hi TL! Regarding payment of the small hosting fee, I think she will remember but I just hope she will remember the scheduled meeting tomorrow as she had arranged.

hi Cutie thats really odd her being the one who initiated the meeting and time and place, now wanting you to remind her.what she has no way to remind herself of that meeting? weird I think It will be interesting to forget the reminding and keep the datre thus seeing whether or not the lady does remember or not.

Yes, Hatley that is what I will do. She's old enough to know her actions.
