    It sounds like she wants to grab attention, which at her age it is very likely. I would probably had said “Sorry, happy belated bday cousin” or something like that on fb especially if we get along/got along.

    @gingerkitten:  Honestly, if I had to acknowledge every cousin of mine’s 18th birthday, I would have to take like 3 weeks to track them all down! Granted, ‘you only turn XX once’ and all, but still, her behavior is that of spoiled child.

    Hopefully one day she’ll learn that the world does not revolve around her, and when she realizes that her birthday is just another day to many people, maybe she’ll stop expecting attention/gifts/praise every year.

    That being said, how about finding the least expensive thing on her housewarming registry to send along with the book? Or maybe a belated b-day card. 🙂

    I think it’s hilarious. Let us know if she post of fb about her belated book gift. Its good she learns that nobody REALLY cares about her birthday. Welcome to the real world kiddo.

    Lol I love this.  People get so uptight these days, I normally hate passive aggressive things, but this is great!

    I’m sorry, did she “register” for gifts for college???  Is this a thing now?! THAT seems like the height of inappropriateness.  Maybe the book was a great idea…

    @gingerkitten:  re: registering for your wedding

    There is a very real difference between what brides do and what your cousin did. Brides who register are not supposed to go around announcing the registry. Guests are supposed to find it on their own or inquire if they are interested in purchasing a gift. Your cousin has publicized her registry and made it known that she expects gifts from it.

    She sounds like the typical entitled little brat to me. she’ll have a hard slap in the face when reality kicks in. i blame her and her parents…there r so many young ppl who feel like the world revolves around them and that everything should come easily…like the world should worship her. i think the book was a great idea…but knowing how she has behaved in the past..i doubt it’ll phase her. what she needs is a good talking to. some wise words to knock her down a few notches. what a spoiled brat!!!
