I didn’t RSVP to my street’s Coronation party – I hate the royals… now neighbours I don’t even know are having a go | The Sun

PEOPLE across the country are planning street parties to celebrate the King's Coronation.

But it seems one person isn't bothered about it and now has neighbours banging on their door to have a go.

Taking anonymously to Mumsnet, the person revealed they had received flyers from other residents on the street organising a street party for the coronation of King Charles III.

However, they explained: "I didn't pay a great deal of attention to it, as it's on a day that I'll be at work, and as a Republican, I'm allergic to anything with a royal theme."

Clearly not thinking much more about it, the resident got on with their life – until they got an unexpected knock at the door from an unsettled neighbour.

They continued, writing: "This evening a man I've never met before knocked on my door and announced that he is one of my neighbours, and wanted to know if I would be attending the party as we hadn't RSVPed."

But they were stunned by his attitude and the assumption that they were 'rude and un-neighbourly' for not responding to the flyer.

They added that the organiser now had a list of neighbours who has RSVPed and those that hadn't.

But they couldn't believe how seriously they were taking the event as 'it is just a bring your own food type of party in a courtyard area between some houses'.

They asked the forum whether they were unreasonable for not replying to the flyer.

"AIBU [am I being unreasonable] to think that if a stranger you have invited to a party doesn't RSVP you just assume they're not coming, not turn up on their doorstep!?"

The post garnered a large response and many were divided in the comments section.

Some agreed they were rude for not responding, while others claimed it wasn't that big of a deal.

One person wrote: "Would it have been so difficult to send a response though? I'd have replied with a yes or no, just out of politeness. It's no skin off my nose and would literally have taken seconds!

"Yes, I think you were rude to ignore the invitation."

Another commented: "I'm republican too but think you're making a big huffy deal out of nothing. It's just a bit of community spirit, isn't it. Cheer up!"

"You have no obligation to pay any attention to their lil street party," penned a third.

Meanwhile, a fourth said: "It's polite to respond. You were rude."

"If you were asked to RSVP and it was a neighbourhood event, then yes, you were rude not to RSVP," claimed a fifth.

Someone else added: "I wouldn't rsvp unless it specifically asked."
