    Not offensive at all! I don't see why you're bothered by it! The real question is: Ducks or kitties? : (3 votes)

    This is trifling. It wouldn’t offend me, only because Im not friends with this person, so likely they werent expecting anything anyway. Had it been a real friend or a relative, big problems. Highest order of unacceptable.

    I wouldn’t bother being offended by it, but ONLY because it was on Facebook.  I’ve gotten a lot of these, people just invite their whole friends list, or friends of friends or whatever.  I just decline and go about my business.

    If I had gotten one of these in the mail however, I would assume it was a gift grab, and be way more offended.

    Don’t send a gift.

    Really tacky and I certainly wouldn’t send a gift, but a probably wouldn’t respond or anything either.

    What a no class dumpster woman…I would send her a copy of Emily Post as a gift for future reference in the hope she might be able to raise her son without committing another etiquette faux pas of this magnitude, thus endangering the pride and dignity of the son in question…he’ll thank you when he’s older.

    @Torrid:  I agree. I wouldn’t take offense, but I’d definitely give a big eye roll to that.

    I wouldn’t be offended, but I’d ignore the hell out of that “invitation.”
