Go Back   VW Forum - VZi, Europe's largest VW, community and sales > Community > Chat/Discussion

Chat/Discussion Kind of like a VW club online - you can sit in our virtual pub and talk about whatever you want to. All opinions are valid, but please no insulting (other than to our intelligence,) abusive or libellous posts. Please feel free to post your opinion on any given subject, but also be aware that others have the equal right to disagree with you - and some will certainly tell you so. No 'For Sale' or 'Want To Buy' ads, plugs for your business, links to 'for sale' ads or Ebay links to your (or your mate's) auction (please use the VZi 'Classifieds' section) - this also includes thinly veiled "What's my car worth?" threads too (please use the 'Dude! What's My Car Worth?' forum) - and please don't use just to post links to other VW forums or websites - we are aware that other sites exist (obviously), but blatant 'plugs' (poaching) will simply be deleted.

Default surprise parties when people say they don't want a party... WTF!

Mate of mine is 40 soon. Apparently he doesn't want a party... and I know if he says he doesn't he doesn't. But a party is being planned anyway.

Maybe I'm a killjoy and out of step... but I'd be pissed off myself.

I told my family I didn't want anything other than our usual meal together... and that's what we had.

Equally my wife is 40 next birthday and has told me specifically to not let her sister plan a surprise party.

Go with the flow.I always said that I don't want a party...until one year there was a surprise party for me.I was delighted that a lot of people that I hadn't seen in a long time turned up.It was the best night ever.

I think that a lot of folk don't hold parties due to the fact that they fear no-one will show up.

Tricky one as people say they dont want a party, but would love one, and others that really dont want one. If he really is of the not wanting one, do they know that? If so then I agree its not on

It's a hard call though, depending on the company, surprise parties can be great nights
