Phone/Text/IM or Visit a Friend

Ever wonder why people keep throwing parties and inviting you, even when you RSVP and don't show up? When you are doing a really good ghosting job but they don't take the hint?

The Ranch in Montana

For a couple of weeks now I have been listening to very fervent and passionate retirement plan discussions.
