This doesn’t sound like new behavior from her, so there’s no use in making waves about it. Say thanks and be done with it.

….yeah, I really would take this down. Compaining about gifts/how other people spend their money doesn’t tend to go over well.

When someone gifts you something the appropriate thing to do is accept it gracitiously.  I hope you sent a thank you card.  If you don’t want either the pitcher or the platter then donate it.

Also maybe you should stop being so judgemental about their spending habits.  How they wish to spend their money is absolutely none of your business.

And really it just sounds to me like you are mainly pissed that they didn’t give you money for your honeymoon.  So just because you didn’t get the gift you wanted doesn’t give you the right to be so damn rude about the gift you did get.

Finally people aren’t donating you money.  They are gifting you money.  You are not a charity and a honeymoon is certainly something that you shouldn’t be having a fundraiser for.

What a be-otch. Giving you something she thought you would like and didn’t clean it first so it would meet your standards? Rude.

lol just gift it to charity or something! No need to make a fuss over stuff you didn’t even want!

buzzingbee82:  if it’s real solve just wash it and pawn it off. This is also why you should have had a registry. I know a lot of people who don’t like giving money. In my family it’s even considered rude. Like no thought was put in it at all. Sorry but at least they gave you something.

buzzingbee82:  I would be surprised if you get a load of people on your side on this one. Yes, maybe not as great gift but I think saying is is disgusting is a bit far. Essentially calling someone cheap (even if it is true) is never going to put you in a good light. Donate the gift to charity and move on.

If it’s silver, sell it.  You will likely at least get the $25 “donation” that you would have preferred.  You cant control what people give you as gifts.

no…just no….

take the high road, send her a thank you card and get over it

NO WHERE does it say that you are obligated to recieve a gift for your wedding… and just because your DH had the means to spent 2k on a computer out of the kindness of his heart (wtf, do they really cost that much? where do you live :|) does it mean that they have to get you a gift because you chose to get married

side note: honeymoon fund = tacky

Unfortunately rant-y, opinion-y type posts don’t go over very well on this website. You will end up being personally attacked.

 

Sorry that you received such a crappy gift! 🙁

… I would just donate it and move on, seems this woman just likes to be cheap or push people’s buttons.

Based on your attitude, I’m pretty sure this was on purpose.
