I do wonder if there could potentially be a grandmother-to-be or some other relative of friend pushing this agenda? Whether they may have brainwashed the MTB with “of COURSE you deserve more – these people are just being SILLY”, or something like that.

Always a possibility. If that little voice says “don’t do that” even though you really want to, but you have people around you encouraging that, you’re more likely to give in. That’s human nature.

But I’ve dealt with enough gimmie pigs to know that some really need no encouragement. In fact, the people around them could be actively discouraging them and they’d still go ahead with it.

I really hope the OP doesn’t end up sending the poems written on this forum to Rude Mom. I agree that Rude Mom’s behavior was beyond greedy but this could really blow up in everyone’s face. Two wrongs don’t make a right.

Not to get off topic, but does anyone remember the lady who ran a job bank in Ohio? She called out a young woman on her perceived “rudeness” and the email went viral. After it went viral, the older woman received death threats and had to resign her position. The woman who posted the email was also called out for acting childish and unprofessional for basically releasing the internet hounds on the job bank’s founder .

Hi I’m the OP! And no, I didn’t send a single poem to Rude Mom (good name!) nor do I plan too. In fact I’ve already tossed the original sent to me. I read it, posted it up, talked about it everyone on here, and with my friend who received the other poem, and then it got swooped up with the other unwanted mail and is in the dumpster.

As far as I know the Rude Mom has been quiet on her Facebook page and it’s assumed she got a very long talking to from her family.

Honestly, I don’t know the girl very well. I do wish her well, I hope she grows up and is a good mom. I hope she’s been shown why stamping one’s feet and demanding something is a terrible idea.

I believe someone said “I do not accept invoices for you life choices” should be embroidered on a pillow. Please don’t send this to the gimmie pigs in your lives, but I hope everyone gets a laugh out of it.

Hi OP

Just thought you might like to know your story has also been picked up in Australia:

http://www.news.com.au/lifestyle/parenting/greedy-parents-throw-worst-baby-shower-ever/story-fnet08xa-1226856909887 .

And I think it’s fair to say that etiquette generally doesn’t account for a lot of column inches in the Australian press…

I can tell there are commenters seething inside –
be comforted that the poem has gone viral!
Instead of smug in her gimmie pig ways
perhaps the mom read it and is in a shame spiral?

If you find yourself wishing
she’d get a boil or a goiter,
just picture her reading this
and enjoy schadenfreude.
