My future aunt in law threw me and FH a surprise engagement party. Yay! It was super cute and very thoughtful. Well she took the liberty of instructing everyone to include an envelope with their address on it with their gifts so that “I wouldn’t have an excuse not to send a thank you card”. She also called me the next day to ask if I’d mailed them yet. (I had not) The party was Saturday and I am finishing up the thank yous tonight so they’ll be in the mail tomorrow. FAIL (hehe I love how that abbreviation works out), called me and basically demanded to know why they weren’t already in the mail. Am I being ridiculous or is this women being very catty?

She’s catty. She sounds like a witch who is treating you like a child. Kill her with kindness….

Geez, I think getting your thank-you cards out in under a week is an accomplishment! 🙂

wow. what a jerk. lol. send your thank yous on your own time.

This is astoundingly rude to me. I would just send them in your own time. Seriously, my mouth dropped open reading this.
ETA: the calling after bothers me less than her having your guests address their own envelopes so you “have no excuse.” That’s the part that floors me.

She needs to calm down. It hasn’t even been a whole week.

Wow, that sounds super rude to me! You do have a life, you know, that doesn’t revolve around sending out THANK YOU CARDS!!!!

She’s insane. I’d purposely wait to mail hers 😉

I’d also tell her she’s rude for making guests fill out addresses….

Wow – out of line! I hate the whole ‘write your addresses’ thing. It is presumptuous (that everyone would even bring a gift) and it’s as if you wouldn’t do it unless half the work was already done for you. Send your FAIL (very appropriate in this case) her card now and get the rest out within the week and stop picking up her calls or deflect to Fiance.

Your FAIL sounds a kinda crazy to me. At least she isn’t your Future Mother-In-Law. 🙂

That’s insane. I feel like getting the notes out within a week is better than 99% of people. I’d stop taking her calls for a while.

I’m gonna go out on a limb and say she has no daughters of her own. Amirite?

i doubt she means to be mean or catty… i think its nice of her to throw u the surprise party and while it is a bit irritating for her to be pushy i dont think she deserves to be called rude and catty just because she wants u to send out the thank-yous right away.. IN the end it reflects well on you the sooner u can get them out and not on her.

She might just be trying to be helpful. I know when I get excited about things my actions sometimes come off as nagging. Hopefully she’s just happy and helpful and really is not trying to be rude.
