Am I the only person who thinks this is just rude?
I have a friend.
I email her on occasion but I never speak to her. I don't even think I have her phone number any more. We knew each other in high school and reconnected years ago over facebook.
She invited me to her wedding. I was delighted to be included but surprised considering the vast distance geographically, but I sent a gift with my congratulations upon receiving the invite and told her I was not able to attend.
Then I got an invite (gift registry list included) for her bridal shower....
Couldn't attend, so I made a small gift and mailed it up.
Then I got an invite (gift registry list included) for her bachelorette party....
Couldn't attend but sent a small gift once again but began to get annoyed with this apparent pattern.
Now she is pregnant. I am happy for her and didn't think much of it since I literally haven't spoken to her since she got married last year. (I know you can see where this is going....)
Last night I get the mail and lo and behold, a baby shower invitation (gift registry list included). SERIOUSLY?!?!? I barely hear from her, I live over 20 hours away, and I am on a fixed income. ANOTHER GIFT?!?!?
