Well that was really rude of him especially after you spent the time designing them yourselves!  Also, not really sure how ghetto can describe a wedding save the date…

scarlettbegonias87:  thats rude! Keep your comments to yourself if you’re in earshot of the person who just gave it to you! I’d personally love to see them to see how ‘ghetto’ they are.

scarlettbegonias87:  A friend of a friend of mine has a husband like this, he just says things to people without thinking and sometimes, its quite rude.

She doesn’t seem to notice anymore and I’ve just learned to accept that is how he is.  He won’t change and unfortunately, I don’t have any advice but just to let sleeping dogs lie.  She’s your BFF and anything you say at this point will just make you look like the petty one so I’d just leave it, especially if your FI didn’t hear the comment.

If things were to escalate, where’s he literally insulting you directly, then I’d talk with your BFF about it.

My best friend got married and I was a BM… after the ceremony as we were walking out of the church, I turned around and he happened to be walking in my direction (not to me… just in my direction) so I smiled real big and I said “YAY! YOU’RE MARRIED! CONGRATS!”.


he looked at me and turned to walk another direction..

I love my best friend, I dislike her husband but as long as he is good to her and she is happy… its whatever. I’m not the one living with him!

But I feel your frustration!

The first time I met my friend’s husband a few years back, they were passing through town before the holidays and spent the night at my house, specifically so I could meet him before their wedding (though they were secretly already married; that’s another story entirely). I made breakfast for everyone — eggs, bacon, toast. He asked if the toast was rye bread. I told him that no, it was multigrain, but it does have caraway seeds in it, so you sometimes get a rye-bread taste from it. He then went on to insist that it was rye bread, though I assured him it was not. It all ended when my friend put her hand on his shoulder and said, “But you like rye bread, right?” to which he replied that he does.

Anyhow, I had gotten a bad vibe from him to begin with, and that pushed it over the edge, and I downright dislike the guy now. My husband and I still laugh about it and ask each other if we’re eating rye bread, even if it obviously is not.

Unless it was airbrushed, graffiti, or used a “z” in the place of and “s”, there’s no way it could have been ghetto. He’s just a dick.

scarlettbegonias87:  Men sometimes say stupid things. My dad sometimes says some very insensitive things as a joke.

Also, when I was younger there was a thing where people called anything they didn’t like “fascist”. I wonder if the same thing is happening here, he called them “ghetto” without really thinking, when what he really meant was, “I don’t particularly care for them”. I mean, I can understand if someone didn’t like the design (even though I *do* like it), but I can’t understad anyone calling it “ghetto”. It makes about as much sense as calling it “fascist”.

In other words: shrug your shoulders, say to yourself “he had a stupid moment”, and move on.

scarlettbegonias87:  I like the STD. Very classic and easy to read!


One of my close coworkers talked non-stop about her new boyfriend this summer. I was finally introduced to him one morning at work. I extended my hand, smiled, and genuinely told him I was happy to meet him after hearing so much about him (coworker told him “oh this is MrsNebraska, you know we work together.”) He looked at me with a stink face, looked down at my hand, and didnt say one word. It was terribly awkward and rude as hell! He said goodbye to my coworker in front and abruptly left. I was left standing with my hand out. He’s such a dick and to this day I cant stand him. Havent met anyone besides her that likes him.
