@badabing88:  I don’t think so. Especially having not received ANY thank you’s. Nope, and I’d probably stop considering them friends.

@badabing88:  Do they attend my functions? If so then yes I would be happy to join but if not then there is no favor to return…

I think it’s time to let that person go.

@badabing88:  Nope. Enough is enough. If someone can’t give me the time of day unless it’s to invite me to events that require me to give gifts to this person, then that’s not a relationship worth maintaining in my opinion.

@badabing88:  Then they aren’t much of a friend and I have no time in my life to waste 🙂

@badabing88:  Yea, it sounds to me they have a lot of ‘friends’ they keep around for occasions where it calls for gifts. I obviously don’t know your relationship with her, but thats what it sounds like to me!! And then they don’t even have the courtesy to extend a thank you (I also am not one to get hung up on a thank you card), and to never be available unless the occasion calls for gifts to them – not a real friend IMHO.

I would regift them something I didn’t want.

If it’s an interesting function you genuinely would like to attend, then go (sans a gift).

If it’s boring/lame/expensive, don’t go.

I say, go if you think you will enjoy it and have fun. If not, give it a miss and save the money you would have to spend on a present.

@Benni:  +1

If it’s going to be an awesome, fun event, it could be worth the price of admission (the gift). However, DH and I try to avoid hanging out with people when they only invite us to events that require gifts.
