Today, we received a wedding invitation from a couple who are renting an apartment from us. They haven't paid rent for several months. My father is listed as the "principal sponsor." FML

Perfect. Go to their wedding and steal all their gifts. Or while they are at the wedding, throw all their stuff out on the street.

wait, "Principal sponsor"? Do they want your dad to pay for their wedding?

maybe because he was letting them get away with not paying rent instead of kicking them out...they considered that "sponsoring"

Show it anyway

The grammar is really not that bad...

Not to be a racist prick, but if they are from the Philippines, this isn't really a WTF - it sounds like a perfectly Philippine thing to do. #2 - 02/20/2009 at 1:40pm by culture clash Report abuse ---------------------------------------------------- yes. that's still kinda racist.

whats a "principal sponsor"? and why dont you evict them and take them to claims court?

Hello, people, use some Google search skills. "The principal sponsors are expected to serve as the couple's second parents or counselors especially when the newlyweds' parents are no longer there to guide them. The couple’s "Ninong" and "Ninang" (godparent) serve as the official witnesses of the state to the couple’s union and as such, have to join in signing the marriage license. In the early days of the Church, their participation was seen as a testimony to the couple’s readiness for marriage." And apparently it IS a Phillipine tradition.

# 7. thats not the point. the point is that these "filipinos" invited the landlond to their wedding just so they dont need to pay them anymore. AND NO. i dont need to google unlike you. DUH!?

Get your money from them! Tell your father not to be an idiot next time.

Sucks, even so, I'd tell them I want the rent, but you know how filipino parents are so good luck with that.

Throw them out onto the street with their crappy invitation!
