It Got Me Thinking…About Inappropriate Invitations May 30, 2011

By Kathleen Guthrie

Yesterday afternoon, I received an online invitation to a networking event for entrepreneur moms. I did a little bit of research before replying, and quickly figured out that the invitation came from a “friend” on Facebook, an old friend from elementary school, who had invited every person on her friends list. So I can’t take in personally, and I didn’t include a comment with my RSVP explaining why I wouldn’t be attending. But, boy, just for kicks, I’d love to invite her to an infertility awareness seminar.

    I’m not sure I would be able to resist the temptation to do just that!

    You could invite her to an infertile entrepreneurs group? Or more inline with the inappropriate, invite her to an entrepreneurs group called “Whew! Really glad we don’t have kids business networking group”.

    Never ceases to amaze me how one dimensional mommies can be. Looking forward to our lunch in late June, Kathleen.
