Hey Evite, Stop Making it So Hard to Decline an Invitation

I have received my fair share of Evite invitations – birthday parties, baby showers, cocktail parties – you name it.  When the whole Evite craze started, everything seemed innocuous enough. But that has changed.

When I receive an invitation from Evite, I don’t even bother opening it.  Why?  Because the second I open the invitation, it triggers a series of events that I cannot undo.  It didn’t take long before I learned that opening an invitation also notifies the person who invited me that I just opened their invitation.  And that’s where the “fun” begins.

Evite takes way too much time to decline an invitation

There I’ve said it. My time is valuable, so anything that infringes on my time is to be avoided. When I receive an Evite invitation and I am not going to be able to attend, then I am immediately placed on the hot seat to come up with a good reason why not.  Just any old reason will not do because everyone on the guest list will see my response turning it into a public performance.  What could have been a short reply of “Sorry I can’t make it” is now a full production.

I want to be nice to the person who invited me and explain why I am unable to attend.  But what invariably happens is that I start looking at all of the responses from other guests and become a bit intimidated buy sildenafil citrate 100mg.  Other guests write clever responses with extensive details where each seems to be jockeying for the entertainer of the year award.

LMK App (Let Me Know) makes declining an invitation a snap

My experience with Evite really helped guide the direction for LMK App.  It is easy.  Just say “Out”, and LMK App makes the excuse so I don’t have to.

Now when I use LMK App, I don’t dread being put on the spot to explain why I can’t attend an activity.  And as a result, I now give a reply much faster – because, let’s face it, if I don’t open the invitation I’m not going to be able to RSVP!  But I have to confess something right here.  I actually look forward to checking the excuse that LMK App uses when I decline an invitation.  It’s Fun!
