Is this what the world is coming to?

I couldn't count the number of posts I have seen (in the answers and in the forums) where people just sound COMPLETELY and UTTERLY ungrateful. It's disgusting. If people are buying your child a gift, be thankful. Who cares that it wasn't on your registry or that you already have 8 tubes of diaper cream or that you couldn't use it after all. Get over it! It was a gift from the kindness of their heart out of love for you and your baby. If you can't use it, give it away and pay it forward or trash it! Just stop crabbing about someone daring to get you a gift! The world doesn't owe you. If you get a handout, be happy. You know how many women get NOTHING? Seriosuly, the ungratefulness I've been reading lately is just sickening.
