That’s pretty hilarious. 

The one and only thing I know about my Great Aunt Jenny, who passed away before I was born, was that she gave my parents an eletric weenie roaster for their wedding. Even in 1973 that was a weird gift.

I’m not married yet but my grandma gave me thong underwear on my 13th birthday, which I opened in front of my DAD. She thought it was hilarious.

Also, my best friend got married last June and she had a present from her Grandma that she got on her 16th birthday that said “Do Not Open Until After Your Wedding.”  She opened it in front of her parents and it was a very risque nighty from Victoria’s Secret. Her mother cracked up and her dad turned bright red. Lol.

@JaneyDcat:  Oh my… I would have been like, “Would have been nice to warn me that I need rubber gloves to open this.”  Just ewwwww.

@JaneyDcat:  If it is the thought that counts, that gift sounds like it had some dirty thoughts behind it.

OMG this JUST happened.  We just got a gift in today that was ONE plate from our china.  I called Fiance to let him know (excited we got another gift) what his family friend bought us, and he thought it was the weirdest thing EVER.  

 

I quote:

Mr. LR: “WTF, why did we get ONE plate?  Are we both supposed to eat off that plate at the same time?  Who does that?!”

Me: “Honey, we can take it back and get something else if it makes you that upset… It’s no big deal!”

Mr. LR: “Well, it’s the principle!  Let’s take a picture of both of us eating off that plate at the same time and include it in our thank you note”

Me: crying, laughing, snorting.

 

He’s hilarious, and while I didn’t find it odd, he certainly did.

@LaviniaRose2013:  *snort* That’s funny. He clearly doesn’t understand that people buy pieces from your registry and you will (hopefully) end up with a whole set. 

My father was trying to find something for the receptionist at work last Christmas. He came home with ONE placesetting. One plate, one bowl, one mug, one saucer. He was so proud. I was like “Um… is she single AND super proud of living alone?” Apparently, he thought he got a really, REALLY good deal on a FOUR **person** set (as opposed to a four PIECE set for one person). Poor guy.

Uhm… Oh my goodness! Yes, appreciate all gifts, but that is hardly an appropriate, or well thought out present!

Oh!! I just remembered my older cousin got one box that had some bubble gum tape, a National Enquirer, some bunny slippers and a lighter. But that was because me & my cousin (who were in our teens) went registering with her and thought we’d be funny. Apparently, her sister thought SHE’d be funny and actually buy the weird things!
