I’m not ballsy enough to do that! BUT, it’s not very nice of you to decide to give her less than you intended to just because she never came on the Bee to learn about how much people hate that. 

I would be very embarrassed with myself if I put that on an invitation or even said it for that matter. But, I have no issue with people desiring money over physical gifts. 

I haven’t seen anything out of the ordinary yet, and will probably never see anything that will top that doozy!

@babecake:  That’s pretty ballsy! The most offensive thing we’ve seen is the classic “No boxed gifts, please!” printed right on the invitation under the venue and the date. We weren’t invited to this wedding but my ILs were and they were quite offended. Ironically, they were going to gift money anyway but after seeing that and coupled with the fact that it was a little out of the way, they declined to attend and didn’t send any gifts.

At least they are being honest.  They could have been a little less blunt.

Omg, that is extremely rude! She could have just skipped registering at a store and people would get the hint I would think. I personally would not have done that but to each his own.

You can basically access their account.  That’s ridiculous.

I’m fine with people not registering and hinting that they don’t want boxed gifts. But… wow. That’s blunt! So rude!

Oh wow, that’s awful!

Also, how can people not know this is rude? I didn’t need to become a member of an internet forum to know that something like this is extremely bad etiquette, and, worse, just plain rude. IMO it is bad enough asking for cash full-stop; but to print it, in bold, and so bluntly?! Wow. Just, wow…
