Is this stuck up?

a friend, well, co-worker, of mine just did her baby registry for her first chld and only put the most expensive stuff on it. I told her that she could get some great name brand stuff at the awesome kids consignment store around the corner for cheaper, if she didn't get everything she needed from the shower. (They aren't swimming in dough) She says to me 'EW! I am not putting my baby in :used: anything, That's for nasty people. Don't worry I'll get everything I invited 40 people to the shower and I'm sure most of them can handle it.' I was shocked.

  • When I get invited to showers for people with that attitude, or that type of registry list, I only buy diapers. Very useable gift but not giving in to their gimme gimme attitude. When I've done a registry of any sort I've included things from every price range and for every type of buyer. Let's face it, your coworker isn't going to be as excited to spend as much money on a gift as your mother. Not only that, but just because you've invited 40 doesn't mean 40 are coming. I can't stand any type of party where the person is inviting the gifts and not the friends. :(

  • That's ballsy of her. I would get her a pack of diapers and an outfit for that attitude.

  • Some people have reservations about used things, not everyone takes care of their stuff. She may not get everything and realize she will have to be a bit frugal when it comes to spending her own money.
