Beware this is a rant.
Two weekends ago we were invited to a Luau Birthday Party. Of course, I somehow prepared what my son and partner would wear on that day because we wouldn’t want to look out of place.
Anyway, we left our house at around 4:30 as the event is a 5-9pm party. We did not expect the traffic and unfortunately we spent 3 hours inside the car. When we arrived that’s around 8:30, they are still having their games, we hurried to meet the Mom of the Birthday Girl, said our apologies, gave our gift and greeted them. She said that she was also worried as she heard that the traffic was really heavy. She offered us to go to the Catering section and eat.
I asked Bryan to find a seat and I will get the food. When I went to the buffet section, I noticed that little to no food was left, only a few pasta, left out dishes and no more rice. I asked the waiter or staff for the Plate. He said that there was no more plate. I waited because I thought that maybe he will get a plate for me since there’s still some pasta but to no avail, he did not move at all. After a few minutes, I asked again, and he said that there was no plate available. I hurried to Bryan and asked him to talk to the catering staff because no one seems to assist me.
He came up to me angry and really pissed. He said that no one even tried to help at all. We were very hungry already and no one, not even the one who invited us assisted us. To think we have a baby with us who’s also hungry. Not more than 10 minutes and we decided to go out and eat to the nearest restaurant.
It was a disaster. I do not want to attend to her party ever again. Oh dear, that was a 3 hours commute and we just felt full of shit.
