1: I hate how attached to freaking alcohol we are in this nation...everyone pushes it to make a buck. The guests were rude but trying to save money.

LW1 - i'd also be concerned about them driving if they had that much already... at work, i manage a program for events - family parties, wedding receptions, meetings, and fundraisers - held on my clients' premises. people don't like it when i tell them taht because they have booze at a fund raiser they etiher have to get more insurance or, if htey don't want to pay for it, then they should have a dry event because there's no insurance. Personally, i don't care if there's wine or beer at a small fundraiser; im' tehre to support the family or cause, not to get drunk.

but, to the point of hte letter, the LW is disappointed that hizzer friends(?) got ripped before they got to teh fundraiser, thus the charity lost out on an opportunity to raise funds (the point of the event). if the ohters are good enough friends, it shouldn't be too difficult to tell them that the charity lost out, please remember the reason for hte event, blah blah blah. and if they're not good enough friends to the point that they get upset, well, now you know their true colors adn can keep your distance.

oh, and the BYOB tactic raises other insurance considerations as well. i don't get some of the logic that drives the distinction between serving, selling and BYOBing, but they're there...

LW1: "Each year we host an elegant, upscale fundraiser on our estate..."
On your estate? My, my, it obviously would have killed you to merely write "at our home." You're a disgusting poseur. F. U.
Next year, I hope your friends leave not only empty wine bottles on "your estate," but also a large pool of vomit.

That would be a waste of a good wine...

Seriously? Shows my reading comprehension. Ha! I'll have to look back at that. That's way too funny.

Thank yhou Julie. That was FILLED with crap that didn't need to be said. The LW was just itching to say how lowlife they were.

Eh, maybe I'm wrong but that's what I read.

If they were invited to the thing by her/him (I'm not looking back to see gender), you'd think she could pick up the phone and have a convo. A simple -- So glad you could make it but Betty, do me a fav. You're such a party person and really can rally the troupes. I love how you go at it with gusto. Unfortunately, your fun group cut into the charity funds b/c they were drinking whatever delicious wine you choose. Can you help me out next year by buying the charity wine instead (alternatively, help me pick the wines/buy 3 cases for the party/donate X amount of dollars)? It would mean so much to the kids/disable/aids people (whatever the charity) and I could really use your help.

Done. I mean, does the LW have fund raising skills or not or does she just have a pretty estate?

True dat. I would think BYOB would make the owner less culpable.
