Taliyah Sassmannshausen was expecting 30 people to attend her fifth birthday party in Spring Hill, Tennessee, but sadly none of her friends showed up.
C'mon, people. Party etiquette 101 – if you RSVP that you'll be there...then be there.
With plenty of food and drinks, a rented water slide...and no guests for their daughter's birthday, her mom wrote about the party on a local Facebook page:
"Does anyone have any kids that want to come over and celebrate my daughter's birthday with us? Not one person has shown up except a few adults and she keeps asking me where her friends are. It is seriously breaking my heart, we have PLENTY of food and drinks. We don't care about presents, she just wants friends."
Here's the amazing thing. Like, beyond what we would have ever imagined. Within 10 minutes of the post, more than 75 people showed up!
Taliyah's mom wrote on Facebook: "NEVER in my life would I have thought we would have so many people care about a child they didn't know. I want to thank all of you from the bottom of my heart and I want to express my gratitude to you all for coming out and making my baby girl's birthday so very special."
Okay, people don't always suck. BRB, we're totes crying.
I Never in my life thought a community would pull together like they did today. I had several people RSVP and only a few came. Tallie was asking about every 10 minutes where her friends were, and my response was "they are coming, baby". time passed and none of her friends showed. So I asked the Springhill community if any of their kids wanted to come and celebrate with us!. NEVER in my life would I have though we would have so many people care about a child they didn't know. I want to thank all of you from the bottom of my heart and I want to express my gratitude to you all for coming out and making my baby girls birthday so very special. SO THANK YOU!!!
