My RSVP cards have the following format:
______ of ______ persons will attend
______ Sorry, cannot attend
And I wrote the number in the line before the word "persons." The invitees are supposed to write the number in the line before the word "of," but the vast majority of them have not.
I can sort of understand why they wouldn't get the whole "______ of ______ persons will attend" thing, but I'm a bit less understanding about why they wouldn't get that they're supposed to write their name in the line that's labeled "Name."
Of those who did not write their name, the vast majority did not write their return address on the envelope either.
If I didn't assign a number to each name and write the number in the back of the RSVP card, it would be a crazy situation. But I still have to call all those people to find out exactly what they mean.
