High school drama still? Lets talk about reunions...

This year marks my ten year high school anniversary.   So as other high schools do, we had a ten year reunion.  I decided to not go to the reunion because I am friends on facebook with almost every single person who graduated in my class and have seen what everyone is up to.  Also, I can use the $75 bucks for each person towards something better for the hubs and I.  But, this doesn't mean I wasn't kept in the loop via facebook.  The day of the reunion, DRAMA was around.  Status messages from various people went up and boy did it seem like people were fed up.  It reminded me of high school drama all over again.  I thought we all kind of grew up and didn't let small little things work people up. Wrong. Now, I can imagine how stressful it is to be on a planning committe and trying to plan it, but I don't think it gives you the right to yell and bitch and moan to people who aren't going due to various reasons. If they are annoying you, is it so hard to just turn them off?  And let's not assume that just because there was months of notice that everyone can save money for the reunion. Yes, it is conceivable to put a dollar away, but some people might not be able to do that. No one knows of anyones situation. I just feel bad that all of us on facebook saw that drama unfold in our news feed.  I seriously thought high school drama would have been done with. 

Was there drama for your high school reunion?  Did you even go?

I didn't go to my 10 year reunion and just got a reminder for my 15 year reunion. I won't be going to that one either. Like you said, I'm friends on FB with most of the people I care to keep in touch with. The last thing I need is a bunch of drama.

Honestly I don't even thing anyone organized one at my high school or I didn't even hear of it. It's sad though that life in a lot ways is a continuation of high school!!
