Your baby gift trick is quite sick!Oh why didn't you give 'dick' the flick?For now we're expected to payfor your unwarranted roll in the hay.So to save these financial contortions,Please, go and have an abortion!
Imagine what their wedding guests must have gone through...
Here's a gift!
Does the *** in *** Family stand for ASS?
I thought I was happyThat you decided to breed.It never occurred to meThat you were so high-need.So social servicesWill be visiting your parlorTo make sure your kidWon't be raised in squalor.
Weird spacing. Thanks, Disqus! Sorry, readers.
How tacky. That young woman needs a lesson in how not to expect a gift from someone who did not attend your baby shower as they did not really know you. What is worse is to send a note to say that the gift that was given by someone attending the shower was not good enough. Did you ever think that some of the gifts that you registered for were to expensive and that you will need to buy them yourself. Grow up and while your at it give your head a shake. Then sit down and write letters of apology to all the people that you sent this too. That would be the right thing to do.
That poor child. S/he has NO shot of growing up with any decent values. *sigh*
My reply would go a little somerthing like this...
Roses are red,Violets are blue,For the sake of humanity; put the child up for adoption,oh, and Fuck You!
I wonder whyany guy would risk his stakeMarrying youShould've made him sick
You proved you are cheapby begging for billsyou should have saved this babyby being on pills
I would never gift you anythingeven if I were very richand the reason for this is thatyou are a greedy witch
roses are red violets are blue do I even know you.. you might work in my office or sat next to me at grad.. if you think we are friends then you have been had! do not expect a gift card or a present from me as you are just a money grabbing mommy to be! ahahahaaaa ©
I'm terribly sorry for missing your shower
There are just better ways of spending my hour
I could go for a walk, or read a book
Or stab myself in the eye with a crochet hook
We hardly know each other, this is true
Never have I met an entitled bitch like you
Pardon me for being so upfront
But please shove your gift list up your baby-maker
I hope she sees this article and realises what an absolute rude imbecile she sounds like!!
I'd send her a condom in a card that read 'Better luck next time'.
reply - Dear expectant parents to be,Didn’t realise YOUR child came with a fee to me,A shower is a chance to celebrate a new life,And this sense of entitlement and greed is why the world is in such strife,So my gift whether judged worthy by you or not, Is to develop some gratitude and thanks for what you’ve already got!
"How exactly does this couple manage to have any friends to even invite to their shower??" you answered this in the first line when you said the sender was someone they barely knew. so seems they're inviting anyone and everyone in their lives who have crossed paths with them. sat next to you on the bus. pls come to my baby shower. we stood in line together a walmart, pls come t my baby shower. i banked a cheque at your window. pls come to my baby shower...
Heres a poem
People who cant write their own checksNeed not to be having any sexYou ought to pick up an etiquette book to readIf you think that your friends are responsible for what baby will need
Your shower sounded dumb,hence I didn't come.I'd rather save my cash,then waste it on your bash.No gift you will receive,your poem I can't believe! How a mom could stoop so low, listen bitch you really blow!
If she did blow she wouldn't be needing a baby shower.
This little stunt would get this bitch a one way ticket to "Fuck You, You Stupid Asshole" Land.
With my son, only a few things were bought off the registry but between family and co workers, plus hitting some consignment shops, we got more than enough! Showers are a celebration of the baby to come, ultimately it is up to the parents to provide for the child, not every person you know.
And here I'm sitting in aweMy eyes can't believe what they just sawAnd to think I thought baby showersWere for celebrating Baby and your birthing powersI thought the gifts were just an add-onBut I guess it was all just a conTo get the victims to spend their hard-earned paysOn wipe warmers, strollers,and a designer onesie that will be ruined in 2 days
O parents to beI barely know thee
Entitlement much it's easy to seeYou ask that I sign over my hard earned cashYou can look highAnd you can look lowBut all you'll find Not even a shiny penny will show,Registered at these stores are youSue me if you like tell your Family tooAn Acquaintance am INone of the lines of the poem you wrote are to my likingYou say Babies need a lot of thingsBut did you also knowThats the job of the donor of Sperm and the layer of EggIf loot was a plenty as you saw and greedily sayThen why wasn't it enoughPlease have more of your say...
1.) If it took hours to sort the gifts and there were towers you shouldn't need anymore. 2.) You can return the ish you didn't like3.) Don't have anymore children you selfish wench4.)I'd feel inclined to make a snotty poem and send it back. Something about "being a greedy bitch of a Mom means that you will not have any friends in very long." Also some more about being a greedy bitch in there.5.) All the guests involved need to never speak to or associate with this woman again.
This is the MOST TACKY thing I have ever read in my entire life.
I did read somewhere that this was a fake. I really hope that is the case. If this were my "friend" I would definitely mail her a shit-filled diaper in a big beautiful gift box. What an asshat.
Hahaha, make that an adult shit filled one
We don't have baby showers in the country where I live so I really don't get this concept of expecting gifts whenever you sprog, but the spoilt attitude on this one is utterly beyond that. I would like to assume that hormones and a fear of motherhood have eaten her brain but badly written poems demanding gifts from acquaintances who don't attend or extra gifts from those whose gift you don't appreciate is so far beyond acceptable that she sounds a very selfish and ungrateful woman. It's hard enough for many women to keep friendships going when they become mums before their friends but this woman is heading to lose every friend she has through being a spoiled cow.
Where are you from? I don't really care about baby showers, but I freaking love the phrase you just used to describe popping out one's crotchet fruit! Sprog is an amazing word!
I am from England. My frequent use of the word sprog comes from the headmistress of my old school (a very well respected all girls grammar school, surprisingly). Our headmistress taught all the health and careers lessons for the older pupils and when covering the sex education component she loved using the word sprog as a verb to describe the act of giving birth, which due to the nature of the course she described a fair bit. She was also fond of stories of her own sprogging experiences.
Lookie here a shiny pennyAlthough I have lots, you shan't have any.And as it's etiquette you seem to lackAny gift I bought you would've sent back!
Heh, saw this on reddit yesterday. Heard there was some doubt as to its veracity? Oh well, I'm sure there are people out there like this who exist.
As much as I hope this is real so I can continue being cynical and bitter about society in the most fun way...but it just can't be, right?? I mean baby showers are almost tacky and awkward enough on their own, for real? How do these special snowflakes get so entitled?
If you have to beg for money for your baby like a tacky leech here's a suggestion: don't have kids right now if you can't afford them. Its one thing when someone is in bad circumstances and needs help and is grateful for said help. I have no problem with that I would gladly assists my friends financially or with babysitting etc if they needed it. Its one thing if its your best friend or sister having a kid because I would love to give them gifts for the baby even without a baby shower. But begging for money from all of your facebook friends, coworkers, family members and hell probably even strangers in the street(lets face it this bitch is probably tacky enough to beg for it in the streets) is tacky as f***. The financial responsibility of parenting falls upon the parents not the 300 people they invited to the shower. So shut up and accept the baby onesies or diapers I was nice enough to bring you. The only thing close to a check or cash these parents to be would be getting from me is a penny on a note that says buy yourself a clue and some manners!
On a side note: even if this is a fake letter( which this being the internet is totally possible) there are actual people out there in this world who are this tacky. I have heard and seen actual true stories of people who seriously expected people to just shower them with uber expensive gifts and cheques because they were having a baby, or getting married etc..
Please tell me this isn't real! Who the hell would marry and mate with a chick like this??
For anyone wondering where this story originates from, it's from the Etiquette Hell forums.
Original post is here: http://www.etiquettehell.co...
I really, really, really hope this is fake and no actual person wrote something like this. Wow. Just wow.
No! That can't be true. Can it? Nobody would be that awful. (I must keep believing that.)
God. How does she even have friends? gross.
Oh my God. I don't want to believe this is real. Sending tons of pennies to this woman is not enough. I was thinking more of an evil prank. Like in The Help when Skeeter had everyone drop their old toilets on Hilly's lawn. But it has to be something baby related.... Aha! Everyone round up their old Diaper Genies and we can head on over to Miss Poet's. *cackles evilly*
Wow, maybe they didn't go to the shower because they couldn't afford a gift. I would have never imagined sending people that didn't attend a note asking for a gift. I would NEVER have imagined telling someone they should get me something else because I didn't like the gift.
Wow. I would humiliate that bitch on facebook. I'd make sure all of our mutual "friends" knew all about her little stunt. That is beyond the pale.
I genuinely don't understand how people like this have any friends at all.
Here's my poem:
Fuck you greedy bitch*bongos*
Yeah, this is fake. That poster is a well known troll. The worst part is the forum owner is aware that the poster is a troll and decided to go ahead with her blog link anyway. Pathetic really.
