To Fail Miserably

My Friend F is working with a few people running for the KDA (Kuwait Dental Association.)

A couple of days ago she held a gathering at her place in which a Dr was going to speak.

All week long soos and I helped her plan the whole thing.

She did a fantastic job!

I loved the set up. F. went to a lot of trouble.

Everything was perfect. Except for the fact no one showed up.

Less than 10 people were there in total.

We invited over 100 people. 75 of them told us they were coming for sure.

The first time we invited them they told us they'll be there. And when we double checked two days before the actual event, they told us they'll show up.

Then suddenly on the day of the event. Poof! everyone got food poisoning, had a meeting to go to. Lost their fones.

It was so damn RUDE. My god seriously what is wrong with people!

Ya3ni if they had told us from the beginning they cant show up then they would have at least spared F the time and trouble!

When will people learn!

I'm so disappointed in everyone!

3aib wallah 3aiiiib!

thats really rude of them =/

i hate it when people do that =S

for what its worth though, tell F she did an amazing job though...everything looks wonderful ;**

sij mayes7oon oh mo metrabeen. If you cant come say so, because mo ya3nee mo jamala if you say yes. 7aram wallah inshallah tet3awath and i wish ya all the best.

March 31, 2009 at 12:08 AM  

.... most people in healthcare don't care about this kind of thing (KMA/KDA) ..... which is why most people in healthcare have inadequate representation ....... if they only tried to build a sense of community then maybe when the MOH decides to assign arbitrary numbers for over time someone might stand up for them .... till then we'll just have to put up with the crap we have shoved down our throats all day everyday ....

kind of off topic .... apologies .....

March 31, 2009 at 12:24 AM  

this is really rude, after they double check they dont come, 9ara7a nas mo kafo :@

March 31, 2009 at 12:27 AM  

she did a great job maskeena

March 31, 2009 at 12:27 AM  

OMG 7araaam..qahar mn jad it's rude, when you know you're not coming say it ahead..

bs the pictures look perfect mashallah! for what it's worth it, you girls can hold one great event..

March 31, 2009 at 1:05 AM  

il9ara7a thayagty 5ilgy..ilmushkila inna this happens a lot. 3ala gooltich why don't they say that they're not comming in the first place, its a lot less 3aib than not showing up..
but I guess you learned from that incident a valuable lesson you and your friends shouldn't forget.

March 31, 2009 at 1:34 AM  

yes i know what ur feeling :( these days some people ar so rude :'(

March 31, 2009 at 2:01 AM  

U shoulda told me, i would've made sure that, first, the house is full of guests, yeah crazy ones but atleast they are fun to watch hehe, second wipe off the plates, bas we are not dentists, just a bunch of hungry guys hehe, ohh and screw them people who didn't show up.

March 31, 2009 at 2:31 AM

Mo kafo!

March 31, 2009 at 3:04 AM  

I dunno why would anyone miss the chance of free food.

I am sure that aktar wa7ad disappointed was the Dr.

March 31, 2009 at 8:18 AM  

الناس ما تبي تستفيد وفوق هذا ما يحترمون المواعيد يعني كان ممكن يعتذرون قبلها مو يقولون بنيي وبعدين يختفون

لو قايلين لهم حفلة جان كلهم احضروا

March 31, 2009 at 9:10 AM  

Tat is indeed rude, esha.
3 cheers to ur friend n all who helped her, for organizing the whole looked very nice n professional.

Btw. hope the food dint go waste.

March 31, 2009 at 9:17 AM  

:( that is certainly very rude. how shameful!

March 31, 2009 at 9:18 AM  

ohhhh!!!! wallah ma yest7oon!!
yallah khair'ha eb 3'airha.. oo those ppl u invite oo didnt show up khala9 big "X" 3lehom fe ay next event btsawona.

mashallah 3la she3'el F, looks 9j raw3a! ya36eeha alf 3afya ;)

March 31, 2009 at 10:03 AM  

Walla madry shagool?

I do not know the invitees, i do not know the speaker, so i cannot judge. Maybe the crowd invited did not mix well with the speaker?

I am also guessing the house gathering was a little intimidating for them, i for one would not go for a persons house to listen to another person speaking about elections...

Meaning that i would rather go listen if it was in the main building of KDA rather than inside a house.

But i would tell u so. I would say im sorry i cannot make it. I would not tell u ok then ignore u. If it was a reception or a wedding i would not have strung u up would i?

Walla il concept of cards o RSVP should be initiated in Q8...

7safa 3la il samoon o il akil 3ad!!!! o 7ram gassaw wayh il speaker...

Maybe if u stuck a celebrity in the middle like a famous mothee3a to present the evening it would have attracted people. Sad i know but this is how things work around here...

March 31, 2009 at 10:11 AM  

Oh my God I'm so sorry that's horrible! Poor F. :(

March 31, 2009 at 10:15 AM  

maskeeena =(
i can relate to that.. ya3ni etha mintaw yayeen don't lie o tell me u will.. mafeeha shay etha u told me u can't!

March 31, 2009 at 10:16 AM  

I am sorry but this made me laugh!!

March 31, 2009 at 11:01 AM  

Awww how could this happened at the last minutes! Wallah the setting and everything seems perfect!! They are too rude!

March 31, 2009 at 11:13 AM  

thats rude! When are they gonna learn manners! 3aib!

March 31, 2009 at 11:30 AM  

the same thing happend every week with me, around of the guys asked me or actually begged me to open a weekly dewaniya and the ones whom are showing up are only 5

March 31, 2009 at 11:40 AM  

a77.. nat good


March 31, 2009 at 11:54 AM  

Yeah that sucks, especially when you put lots of time and effort to it o you get startled with the feedback !

March 31, 2009 at 12:02 PM  

when planning events in Kuwait i've learned that 25% of people who say they're definitely going to show up actually show up.

So 75 people said they're coming 25% of that is about 18 people. you should of set up for 18.

You learned a lesson.

March 31, 2009 at 12:13 PM  

wallah ma yest7oon! shwayyat kuwaities :-p

The place looked really nice though... mayeb you guys should start a business ;-)

March 31, 2009 at 12:46 PM  

That's a shame! Shamful enough because it's attached to us being Arabs!!! I can totally relate to that! I was giving a training where 40 people confirmed coming, 6only showed up!

You and your friend did a great thing and that's all what matters!!

March 31, 2009 at 2:31 PM
