So hubby and I handled the current situation already, but, I am looking for ways I or anyone else could in the future politely refuse the request from an invited guest to also bring someone that you didn't invite. It was horrible, awkward and something we will hopefully never go through again. Luckily it wasn't a situation where they just simply brought the uninvited person along not having said anything.
I looked for a response on this site last night before we responded and didn't come across anything. I thought that others might need some help in the same department.
So, what are ways that you can get past a bully guest trying to get someone else on your list? I want to have some responses at the ready next time!
