I have a friend who is having boy/girl twins. She invited me to her baby shower but I can't go because I have 4 things going on that day and she lives 2 hours from me. We haven't seen each other in years but we've known each other since first grade. She moved away in 6th grade and we've always talked a lot over the years just haven't gotten together in a long time.
Anyways, I sent her a 4 pack of blankets that I loved for my kids. Usually I only spend about $20 on a baby shower gift but these were $35 so it was a stretch for me. I know finances are tight and they were some of the most useful things with my daughter. I used these things for everything because they are big, lightweight, soft, and are lightweight enough to be thrown in a bag without taking up too much space.
She got them yesterday and this is the message I get. "Hey I was just wondering why you sent me these blankets because they aren't the ones I picked out on my registry."
Well I guess she won't be getting more gifts from me! How rude! I messaged her all of the reasons why I sent her those blankets and told her I spent a long time trying to decide what to get her and she didn't even respond!
And I didn't even know she was registered anywhere since it wasn't even on the invite! Even if she was these are her first kids and I have 3 so I think I have a bit more experience with them and have a general idea if they will be useful. And no, she's not me but I've never met anybody who didn't think they were useful who owned them!
