People on the “Awaiting Reply” list: THIS IS EVERYONE. This is your former crush, the girl you hate, all your friends, your old TA, some guy you went to camp with that you didn’t even realize knew Erin. This is where it’s at. And this is also what makes Facebook events so frustrating nowadays: here are all the people you should be prepared to see if you go to this event but who may not actually be there - all in one long list. It’s like when teachers used to tell you that you had to memorize ALL the vocab words on the list, but you’d only end up getting tested on five on them.
