People "inviting" themselves (help!) *edit*

Long story short, 4 of my co workers and I are driving 2 hours to a theme park for a Halloween thing. Another co worker just saw we were going (on fb) and invited herself and her "boyfriend", whom all of us find creepy as hell.

How do you nicely uninvited someone who invited themselves? I still have to work with this chick.


EDIT: So we all decided to suck it up and let them tag along, but they want some of us to ride with them, we declined saying we all had to take our own cars since it's a long drive and some of us made plans to go to other places before we get there. There was really no "all girls" or "no couples" excuse since one co worker going is a male and his girlfriend, who also works with us, is going. Hopefully it still goes nicely, but lesson learned --- NO posting about private plans :P

Tell her sorry no room. Just tell her the truth. She isn't invited.



I never understood why people can't just tell the truth. We are adults, we SHOULD be able to handle being to no or being left out of something.

You cannot stop her from going the same night. But, just leave it at that.if she asks what time you are going, be vague, say you are not sure, might go to dinner first.

I am sure she assumed it was a coworker thing since you were talking about it openly on Facebook. Usually when adults are planning something private they don't jump on the Facebook and talk about it where everyone can see and assume that they too can come along! Sorry, but I do not at all feel bad since you all chose to openly discuss private plans.

Lol well I know it's public, but she wants to hang out with us the entire time and her boyfriend will really aggravate us. We wanna have fun, not be careful of what we say because they're there.

It was posted by someone else and directed only to the other 4 people. Maybe it's just my common sense to know that if your name is not in the list, you weren't invited.
