I am running the fellowship dinners at church this year. The dinners are Friday and Saturday and this is Tuesday and I am still taking RSVPs and rearranging tables to fit in people who responded to me late.
My predecessors in this job cut off RSVPs the week before and anyone who RSVP'd late simply couldn't come. I was an event planner for a year and a half, so I'm pretty organized and careful about such things and I have big spreadsheets and I know who has place settings for eleven and I CAN make it work to take RSVPs right up until the day of.
To me, I sort of feel like part of being inclusive is being inclusive of disorganized people.
Is that completely stupid?
