Today's social dilemma came from an interesting email from Jarrod. I think it's something we've all had to deal with so I can't wait to hear what you have to say. Here's the email: Hi Jaime. I listen to your social dilemma every day on the way to work and I have one of my own. My name is Jarrod and I am throwing a party for my sister for her 40th birthday. She knows we're having a party but she made it clear to me that she would rather keep it small and only have the people she's closest to at the party. I promised that's how it would be. So I knew I would invite about 15 to 20 people. However, when I called one of her best friends, the friend asked if she could bring her 19 year old daughter and her daughter's boyfriend with her. Now under normal circumstances it would be no big deal, but my sister was clear about wanting this to be a party with only her closest buds. I know that my sister hasn't seen her friend's daughter for awhile and she doesn't even know the boyfriend. When I tried to explain this to her friend, she blew me off and said she knew my sister wouldn't mind. I really don't think the "kids" should be at the party. HELP! What should I do? I'm really hoping you and your gang can help me out with some good advice. Thanks so much Jaime. Love listening everyday ~ Jarrod Wow, that is tough. I've been in situations like that, and usually I would just say bring them along, but in this case, I think it's important that Jarrod's sister have the kind of party she wants, so I think I would try to tell the friend again, that it would be wrong to bring the kids. What do you think? How would you handle it? Let me know on the TRY Facebook page.
