Do you know what the double invite is? I know it all too well unfortunately. It is when you invite people to hang out and then they invite people as well. They usually invite people you don't know at all or maybe you do know them but didn't want them to come. It is a sticky situation. It can be awkward and sometimes gets feisty.
I admit this is the biggest pet peeve I have. I think it is rude. I bring this up because one of our friends was a victim of the double invite and it ruined their friendship. I personally think it is disrespectful. Are the initial invitees not good enough that they need to bring a posy with them? If that is the case then don't bother going at all. Make and excuse not to show up and save everyone from this uncomfortable situation.
So have you ever been guilty of the double invite? Have you ever been plagued with this situation? What was it like? Did you ruffle feathers or even ruin a friendship? Do you think this is totally acceptable or is it uncalled for?
