Phrase " you are welcome to come"
(Milford, MA, USA)
I call this the "unvite". Someone is having a party, they leave a message on the phone that says, "We are having a memorial day cookout, and you are welcome to come". I find this incredibly rude like we are having a cookout and have an invited guest list but you, you are welcome to come, like you can also come if you want to. Please tell me if the way this invite was phrased is as rude as I think it is. Thanks
