Cheeky Present Grabbing **** or I am I wrong lol

Recommended Posts

If this is long I apologise but i'm furious and can't decide whether its justified or not lol My friends are giving me mixed feelings lol


I'm only from a small family but my cousins are all at least 16 years older than me so they have kids that are younger than me by about 7 years upwards.


Anyway the youngest one just had a baby, I haven't seen her for over a year and know roughly where they live but the estate is massive and I won't go anywhere unless i'm invited I was brought up properly lol


So I sent over a present for the baby via another cousin and said look I don't know where they live so please give her this from me. Did I get a thank you? That would be no lol So christmas comes and again I send a pressie. Again did I get a thank you? No lol By this time I thought right you can sod off can't be bothered with rude people lol


One of my other family members had a birthday party for her 2 year old and said of if you could you can see the baby! I said sorry can't make it and I couldn't so I didn't get to see the baby. Btw they ALL know where I live and my phone number lol


Anyway I get up yesterday morning and open the door about 11am and FI hands me this card with both our names on, no address so it was obviously hand delivered!!, they didn't even knock lol So its a come to the christening card but just to the church! RSVP by the 4th lmao No address where to reply to either!!


That was it i blew my stack lol my initial thoughts were you are can shove it up your arse i am no-one's last thought and I am sure as hell not sending ANOTHER present. This kid is 4 months old and i've not seen it lol


So am I being paranoid or does that all sound grabbing to you lol smile03.gif

IMO I wouldn't send a present. Sounds like you have done enough! I would expect thank you notes or at least a thank you phone call. It's so rude not to send a thank you or call!!!

I'm assuming that they don't live that far, so there's no reason why they couldn't at least call, or better yet bring the baby over so you could see it. And you clearly told the other cousin that you didn't know where they live, that's why they had to deliver the present for you, so they KNOW why you haven't come to visit. I think your cousin is being a douche and doesn't deserve any more presents or any more attention. I'd tell her to buzz off

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
