Her baby shower ruined our friendship!

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post
My friend had a baby shower this afternoon. I got her a really nice pack and play that she had on her registry. I probably spent almost 200 dollars on it.

When I arrived at the door and tried to walk in and she immediately stopped me and said the 'price' for entry is a box of diapers. I explained to her that I had gotten her a much nicer gift and she still refused to let me in without the diapers. I turned around and walked back to my car and did not return. She even had the nerve to call me and tell me I can drop off her gift tomorrow!

Ugh. Ive been friends with this woman for over 5 years! I'm returning the pack and play tomorrow and treating myself to a mani/pedi. I dont need entitled 'friends.'

She wasn't really like that until her first pregnancy. Her first shower had the diaper admission as well, but since I was temporarily out of work I brought her just diapers anyway so I didn't realize it was a requirement.


Quoting jas_momof2:

Yikes!  Yeah, that would totally end the friendship.  Why was she like that?  Has she always been that way?

Are you kidding me?? That is so ridiculous!

Ive heard of diaper raffles, where if you bring a pack you get a ticket and can win but never to attend!!

FUCK HER.

That's what I told people. I just wanted to hang out and have a little party.


Quoting Maevelyn:

WTF? I told people they didn't have to bring gifts to my baby shower if they wouldn't be able to and that I just wanted them to come celebrate my baby... I'll be your friend no diapers or packnplay required lol.

I totally agree with you. You spent more than enough on her and she was a bitch. Return the gift and just ignore her.

Tacky, tacky, tacky!! She just had a baby shower earlier in the year. If she was wanting diapers only she should have had a friggin diaper party and not a baby shower. F that. Enjoy a glass of wine with your mani pedi
