One More Week: People Need to Die

February 13, 2010

We (and by that I mean he the groom) has been trying to get a hold of one of the groomsmen for… oh about 3 weeks now. Groomsman is groomie’s best friend from high school, way back when groomie lived in MN.

You know, to get the use details and stuff. Tuxes, airplane information, all that good junk.

We (and I mean, groomie) have tried everything: text messages, phone calls, consequently voice mails, Facebook = nada

So today, groomie sends groomsman boy’s girlfriend (let me give you a minute to figure out that connection) an email. I mean, seriously, we have a week more folks.

She tells us that groomsman-boy person is “trying to get off for the wedding but it’s not looking good”

I beg your pardon? It’s a week till and he is still “trying to get off”? Dude, it’s been 9 months!

Girlfriend of groomsman-boy says he really has good intentions to call, really. He just well, “feels bad because he really wants to be there” for groomie and all and he doesn’t want groomie to be mad.

I cannot speak for the groom but personally, I am not mad that he isn’t able to come, I am however livid that he, wait, no, his girlfriend waited to tell us (after we contacted her no less) a week after the freaking wedding. What the heck is wrong with you people?

The kicker: “you guys should have gotten married in the summer. We would have made it then”

You are right. It is our fault for not getting married at your convenience. What were we thinking?


Belatedly, I realize this post isn’t a very Christian of me but people seriously are driving me bat crazy! One more week. One more week. One more week.


Update: So the girlfriend emailed back and said she will try and look into plane tickets and hotel information, “where and when is this wedding?” “um… in six days”. She came back later and said that the ex-groomsman has a lot of things to do this week and next weekend that he cannot get away from and that he feels really bad but he won’t call because he feels really bad and told her to tell Cory that he feels really bad (I think really bad is really over-rated at this point). She also hopes that we don’t stress too much on the wedding planning. Whut? Cory was so bitterly disappointed he couldn’t even reply.

    Ugh, so sorry about that. I understand how upsetting that is, as that might require you to adjust some things about your wedding, but I do hope it’s not that bad and that you can cope with it and find a good solution. 🙂

    Gaah! You poor thing. Honestly, I was reasonably sympathetic — OK, he didn’t plan ahead so well, and that’s annoying, but bosses can be jerks, and it’s probably a bit embarrassing to admit that he might not be able to get time off — until his girlfriend busted out that “you should have had your wedding in the summer when it was more convenient for us” nonsense. Right, because it’s clearly *your* fault that he left all this ’til the last minute. Ugh.

    o no he didn’t.

    freaking pathetic. especially when all you really want (well, it’s what i’m going to really want 1 week before my wedding) is for your friends to be rallying behind you – sharing in your joy and excitement – buying you shots – giving you hugs – smiling realllllly huge at you. instead…you get this lil bump in the road…and the lil bump feels like a mountain.

    and the lil bit about “you should have had your wedding in the summer?” wha??? weddings make people nutty. did you know that i am getting married the SAME DAY as one of my cousins? his is in Chicago…mine in Arizona. my entire family lives in the midwest so will be attending his wedding and not mine. you don’t even want to know how many mean phone calls my poor mom had to field – people demanding we change our wedding date so they can attend both…yada yada. part of me is actually sorta relieved some of them won’t be there.

    Boys do think everything just happens. Also girls should not be so rude.

    Wow. What a dick thing to do.

    @anna — boys also think that if they don’t talk to anyone about a problem, that means the problem doesn’t exist 😛

    I just read the update. I’m so sorry for Cory! I could write volumes on why this guy’s behavior was lame and immature (he made his girlfriend tell the groom that he was bailing as a groomsman 6 days before the wedding?! He didn’t even look at plane flights until the week before the wedding?! Seriously?!), but mostly I’m sorry your groomie’s friend let him down. I hope you’re both doing well in the home stretch!

    That is all kinds of whack. Crazy juice. Banana sauce. I would have been so mad. I mean you could probably do without him, but it is a not a decent thing to do much less from a friend who you asked to stand by you in your wedding! Sorry hun. It’ll probably be a better wedding without that kind of mojo.

    Mother-F I don’t think so! That is ridiculous and it’s so sad the guy didn’t have the balls. So they never came and he was a chicken about it? Wow. I’m really sorry. Anything been said after the wedding?

      Nope nothing. Sucks. But when you plan your wedding I suppose you find out who your friends are
