Here is a funny, cute email that you can use to refuse an invitation to something that you don't want to go to or simply can't attend.
You know what I'm talking about. It's an awkward situation and you're feeling a little uneasy about turning somebody down for something and you really don't like saying "no" but you have to!
However, if you can do it in a humorous way, then maybe both parties will be OK about it.
Try this template below. It should help you refuse an invitation.
Thanks for inviting me to [ ]the cell block [ ]your party [ ]the yodeling contest [ ]the broccoli festival [ ]the pub [ ]the opera "open mike" night [ ]the naked bike ride for ingrown toenail research [ ]the game [ ]the mud wrestling [ ]the Yak grooming class [ ]dinner [ ]the mud wrestling tournament
but unfortunately, I'm going to have to decline because [ ]that's my laundry night [ ]I'll be in Nepal at that time [ ]my goldfish are feeling lonely and need more personal attention [ ]I'll be working that night [ ]I'll be picking up my Nobel Prize that day [ ]I don't get out of the clinic for another 6 weeks [ ]the parole board won't let me associate with you [ ]I've already committed to another outing that night [ ]Jeopardy might be calling me that day [ ]I'm afraid of peanut butter!
Maybe we can [ ]get your people to call my people and set up lunch [ ]warn others about the alien abduction [ ]spray paint your name on the overpass [ ]grab a coffee together soon [ ]go over your "State Of The Union" address [ ]learn to photosynthesize so we can become house plants [ ]meet for a drink [ ]track down a Yeti
