Tales of Woe

I just got IM’d by my friend Karen. Her sister got married this past weekend and they were all in New Hampshire for the event. Here’s the transcript:

hi – sooooo sorry we did not call

the wedding was insane

everything kept going wrong

all weekend

I didn’t really expect you to call.
Not that I didn’t want to see you guys, but weddings are crazy stuff.

the rehersal restaraunt closed, the chef for the reception quit, the organist over booked, the salon canceled our 10 reservations, my wedding dress never got finished, it rained during the party at my mom’s house….

Okay, so you didn’t think it would be that crazy.

yeah and the inn was over-booked and the woman running it was a bitch and there was no staff — I had to bus tables at brunch on Sunday

How do you tip for that sort of thing?

god I wish I had gotten tips! It would have made up for the craziness to a point

anyway the ceremony and reception were wonderful and if you were not involved with getting it pulled off you would never have known it was a disaster behind the scenes

It’s amazing how somebody else’s tale of woe can lighten the day. Sorry.

tales of woe, woe, complaint, wedding, disaster

  1. I hate you doucebags too. I was looking for phontos taken by Timothy Treadwell not your stupid wedding crap.

  2. pretty lame to set that up…..who’s more tasteless – the people who are curious about timothy’s death or a-holes like you? get a life.

  3. I hope your life ends up like Timothy Treadwell death. Eat’n up and shit out. you post about something that has meaning to get people to read your lame life. Fuck you and fuck your love ones. I hope you get to watch the life leave their eyes as they die for what you will do.

  4. Yes, this is intentionally expoitive of a tragedy, but attempts by people like me to understand how this young man was so comitted, that he (and a capable young woman) died for their beliefs.
    Perhaps you should revaluate your tendency to manipulate, hopefully youll have more integrity in your marriage!
