- Wedding: August 2016
Ick. Ack. Uck. Eeeeeewwwww
This just sounds really dumb and tacky. I’d cringe if I saw it done at a wedding.
pussinboots83: That’s what I thought was going on. I’ve played the same game (not with money though) and the winner gets the centerpiece.
I really didn’t think twice about playing. … also you kind of can’t not play. We didn’t know everyone at our table, so taking the money back, switching it out for something lower, and proclaiming rudeness weren’t really options. Granted, it is 100% unanimous here that this game was wrong, but personally, I would rather be the bigger person and suck it up than look like a b***h in public….. I much prefer to come here to WB and share.
I think I just threw up in my mouth a little.
I actually think it’s quite terrible!
smoocheepoo: That’s the worst part though – no one wants to look like the bad guy, but really you’re completely within your rights to say hells no! Everyone there was afraid to say no to outright robbery. It’s like a mob mentality in a more minor form, once it starts, no one is willing to put a stop to it. What if that had been your cab fare home? What if you’d just been laid off and had no cash to spare for anything? It’s never in their right to decide what you do with your money but because of the situation they put you in, you felt you couldn’t stand up for yourself. Horrible.
smoocheepoo: oh girl I would have no problem looking like a bitch in this situation. I woulda walked right up to the person who “won” the “opportunity to present the bride and groom” with my hard-earned cash, snatched that $20 right back and left the reception flipping my hair on my way out.
Oh, and I’d probably go dig my card out of their card box and tell them “since you’ve decided to steal hundreds of dollars from your guests, you won’t be needing my genuine GIFT I planned on giving you anymore”
