What???? No, you’re not obligated to replace it and I can’t believe she’s acting like you are. It would be very generous of you to replace it but with that text message I would pass.

What in the hell!!!!!! I cannot believe the nerve of some people.  Please don’t replace it…that is so rude of her.

If it was just the glass covering the picture in it, I’d send them the address to Lowe’s hardware store saying, “So glad you like the gift. Fortunately, you can replace the glass yourself! Lowe’s will custom cut the right size for you for a rather low price. I’m sure once you get the glass replaced, it will look beautiful in your home.” Also, seconding PPs–THE NERVE!

Absolutely not! Are they freaking kidding? They break your gift and you’re expected to replace it? Honestly, I probably wouldn’t even respond to the text, and if she brought it up again I’d say that while I’m sorry the gift broke, I’m not willing to buy it twice because they were careless with it. That level of entitlement is absurd.

Green eyed greedies be greedy. 

1. Who writes like that to say “thanks but we are dumbbutts who dropped the frame so you replace it”?

2. They can easily just replace the galss with glass from any other frame or have a piece cut for much less

3. You are not obligated. Hopefully she still has wedding stars in her eyes, that is the only excuse I can think of for her being to completely blind to manners.

“you can pick up a replacement glass at X store. Good luck.”

Then I would never speak to that greedy person again. Is this normal behavior for her?

My response would be “fuck off,” but that’s just me

……how delusional do you have to be to expect someone to replace the gift they gave you because you yourself managed to break it????

 

I wouldn’t even respond to that text.

Hahahahaha. Fuck no. 

Don’t even answer. Such an egregious etiquette faux pas doesn’t deserve a response.

How that was even her thought process baffles me.
