Um. Where were these people raised (parent of graduate)?! Who does that? Unbelievable.

Wow. Ya, I would say that is pretty rude.

Just out of curiousity, how do you know these people?

ummm…WOW…that’s pretty terrible. My little sister is graduating next week–I hope my mom doesn’t do anything crappy like that! haha but my mom isn’t gift-grabby like that. That’s just really crazy, who honestly thinks that’s okay to do?

Oh my goodness, how horribly rude. I guess you know who you won’t be hanging out with anymore. 

I would totally say you’re still waiting on a gift from their daughter! An eye for an eye, bitch.

That’s nuts.  Since when is it obligatory to reward expected circumstances?  It is sort of society’s expectations that teens/young adults graduate.  So why are we obligated to give them something to do that which they are nearly embedded to do regardless?  I think with the exception of some very special events around particular individuals, any sort of monetary gift is certainly not necessary let alone required.

Unbelievable! 

I once got a solicitation to donate to a charity.  Letter said that the person was going to be running a race for a certain cause and that donations would continue to  be accepted well after the event.  I fully intended to contribute to the worthy cause.  The day after the race, I got a phone call from the person telling me that I was the only one she’d written to who hadn’t yet contributed on her behalf!    Needless to say, I was taken aback and charity or no charity,  told this person how I felt about her inappropriate shakedown.    I didn’t want to cheat the cause,  so I sent them something directly from me,  but I was so turned off by  this person.

Wow. Wooooooooowwwww….. No words. 

OP, I hope you will email her back with a link to this thread. This woman needs to be urgently educated about manners.

Wowwwwwwwwwwwwwwww. I…can’t even. That’s just gross. Seriously.

I mean, for FI’s little brother’s graduation, I made him a candy bouquet (which he LOVED). I’ll probably make him something for his party, too. We didn’t attend FI’s cousin’s graduation party or ceremony (two hours away, AND the ceremony was at 7PM on a Sunday!), nor did we send her anything. Almost everyone graduates high school, and while I would never take the excitement away from anyone, it’s really not that big a deal in the long run.

@vorpalette:  Seeing all the cars this time of year with the high school initials and, “Class of 2013” written on them cracks me up.  You haven’t gotten to the hard part of life yet, guys.
