I was scrolling on my FB newsfeed and I have this one friend who I’ve known since elementary school. She’s engaged and to be married this year. She posts every single day about how amazing her fiancé is and wedding updates etc. I know, I can easily Hide her stuff or unfriendly but I can’t because it’s just interesting how this all is. She posted this this morning, the exact words: “We are getting married!!! Did you know this?? Great. Then go to our website to learn more about us. Also, please go to our honeyfund registry page to help pay for our honeymoon while you’re at it. We thank you.” Then she posts the website and honeyfund links and writes “any money you can give to us to help us have an amazing honeymoon is appreciated!”
Even a few weeks back she posted the same thing and added something along the lines of “God put us here on earth so we can share. Please donate to our honeyfund.”
wtf? That annoys me to no end. I know many bees on here who have used honeyfund and it have no problem with that whatsoever. It’s the way she worded it. It’s the way it came out. i think it’s weird 1) this is for all of her FB friends to see 2) I’m sure she’s not inviting all of her 780 friends to her wedding and/or does not communicate with all of them 3) we don’t talk and I am not invited to the wedding (which I’m ok with since we haven’t spoken since elementary going onto highschool.) 4) I would totally understand it if she made the post as a separate private message or Group or only the invitees could see.
i just can’t believe her. Yay or nay?

I rarely use this word here, but that is taaaccckkkkyyyy. People can debate about honeyfunds all day long, but if someone decides to use one and shares that info with invited guests, that’s fine. Broadcasting it to FB friends is over the line. If that person was my friend and I felt like being a smartass, I’d probably respond by saying that God also put them on earth to earn a living to pay for their own honeymoon.

@anongirl89: God put me on this earth to help people IN NEED, not people who just want a few rounds of free drinks and expensive meals on my dime.
She’s super tacky. And kind of pathetic.

Ugh. I just vented yesterday about a post my brother and his wife shared on facebook. It’s a GoFundMe page to collect money for a “virtual baby shower” but there is not an actual baby shower. And it’s not even an actual registry. I could go on (and on and on) but I properly vented yesterday so I’m not going to dwell on it. But yes, there are some T to the ACKY people on facebook.

omg that sounds like some horrible commercial for her wedding. I’d probably ask “Just checking if we contribute to your fund does that get us automatic invite to your wedding?” just to see her answer lol.

I’m usually more lax about some of these things. I mean that it usually doesn’t annoy me as much when other people do them, if I think they are either a little naive or at least trying to have a bit of decency about it haha. I didn’t do a honeyfund, and I would never have done it myself on fb.
That being said… her WORDING is just…. I want to SMACK. HER. You want to try to raise funds on FB for your local American Cancer Society Relay for Life? Great! I think thats a wonderful cause, dedicated to other people fighting cancer. You want to try to raise funds on FB because you feel ENTITLED to a honeymoon? Eff you. You’re not entitled to something like that!!!! It’s one thing to have a honeyfund instead of a big registry of items and have family members sort of spread the word around (that’s a-ok in my book) but this… this makes me angry.
And it might backfire on her lol.

She sounds annoying and entitled. I’m sure no one will actually donate as a result of her facebook post, I sure wouldn’t.

Wow, my mouth literally dropped when I read that. The nerve of some people! Sheesh!

She’s not a cancer patient, and her honeyfund is not chemo!

@anongirl89: Bleh. I would find it annoying, but nothing to be super-offended about. I wouldn’t feel obligated to give money to her.

@anongirl89: She should just get a tin cup and hang out on a street corner if she wants to beg.
How embarrassing for her.

No. No. No. Just No.
This is so incredibly rude. I don’t like the concept of a honeyfund to begin with, but this takes it to a whole new level of inappropriate.
