PG and I got an invitation the other day to a party during the Christmas season. First of all, I was thrilled to receive an actual invitation. Nobody does that any more, everybody just phones or texts or casually asks someone else to let you know.
But it was a little late to be inviting people to a Christmas do, with less than three weeks remaining till the day they’ve planned it. Lots of calendars are already filling up, so I would think that many people simply can’t fit in another social event.
Not PG and I. No, no. We’re pretty much wide open all Christmas. So of course we can attend our friends’ party.
Except at the bottom of the invitation, it says “RRSP” – which is, obviously, the acronym for “Registered Retirement Savings Plan”.
So now I simply don’t know what to do. Should I reply to these people to tell them that we would love to come to their party, or should I simply donate some money to their RRSP?
