class reunion
« on: July 30, 2020, 09:28:47 AM »
so one of my classmates has set up a little G-T-G, class reunion for AUG 14th at a local pub. he did this 5 years ago and was surprised at both the people to show up and surprised of those who live so close not show up.

this will be 45 year reunion and i'm so undecided on if i should go. for the following reasons.

1) the guy that is behind this is NOT a class officer. the class officers are stuck up snobs apparently. some wanted it at a fancy place for our 30th.......most didnt so it didnt happen. nuttin for our 35th. and i think this is  :bs:

2).......5 years ago when i went  i couldnt believe how clicky it was. the same people talking to and huddling by the same group they did 45 years ago. one would think after 40 years people would finaaly get friggin over it. sheez!!!!!!!! :pouty: :crazy:

3) then there is this COVID crap. personally i dont see alot of people going because of it. it wont be the reason i wont go..........see #'s 1 and 2 above!!!!!!! :rotflmao: :rotflmao:

worse part at this point is i have no plans for that day, night.........YET!!!!!!!! :smoking: :smoking: :cool:

was supposed to have out 50th reunion this fall, and for the same reasons I wasn't going to go, then covid came into the picture.. 

if they wanted to talk to me they could have gotten in contact with me easy enough...

I went to one a few years back - 35 I think.  It was refreshing to see that a lot of the clique barriers were breaking down.  It was just nice to get caught up with the lives of old friends.

Our class has long since given up on relying on class officers to plan and organize.  The fun gals pretty much do the planning now and they did a great job.  Nothing over the top.  They get it.

I have never gone to any of mine.

When they called, here is how the conversation went:

Lady: Is Mr. .... ..... At home?

Me: No, what is this pertaining to?

Lady: I'm Ms. so and so, and I'm in charge of the ...... high school reunion committee, and want to get a hold of .... To let him know about our upcoming event. That way I can plan reservations, and head count.

Me: Well, I'm sorry to inform you Ms. so and so, but he died in a horrific car accident a few years back.

Lady: I'm so sorry to hear that! Was he married?

Me: Yup he was

Lady: Please give her my condolences....

Me: I'll let her know, thanks

Lady: Can I ask who I'm talking to?

Me: I'm just a guy shacking up with his old lady.

Lady: Okay then, I'll take his name off of the list. Have a good day.

Me: You too......click


 :scratch: I've never heard from them since.  :happy1:
