Double egregious ....
« on: February 27, 2014, 03:42:57 PM »
I don't have the text (I don't think it was in English, anyway), but my daughter called me this morning to tell me about a wedding invitation from a friend of her fiance's. 

First she asked if I was sitting down.   :)

The invitation instructed the guests to bring a dish for a pot luck reception, then added, "But do not think that this means you do not also have to bring a gift."

Yikes!

So I assume daughter is taking Walmart potato salad dumped in a bowl with a plastic serving piece and saying, "Congratulations! Oh, the bowl and serving piece are your gifts"?

Best I can come up with right now.

You know, that's actually not a bad idea, if one was planning to attend. Then you wouldn't have to worry about trying to get your dish back.

Sometimes I think it's "better" when people just lay out what they want, rude though it may be, rather than doing everything properly on the surface and then sniping at people behind their back...

She should have asked if gellchom was laying down.  A lot can happen in a chair.

I don't suppose we'll get updates?   She should consider going!

Eeep!

What a wonderful idea for all the guests to do.  Put their food in a serving dish with serving utensil--dollar tree has many of these.  Double duty as food offering/gift and person bringing does not have to worry about taking anything home!  Then hc will have plenty of serving bowls/dishes/utensils for their future parties!

This is another situation where I would make a gift donation to charity - Heifer International.

I'm sorry, I'm laughing so hard I can barely type this but an upside down pineapple cake could get her a skillet. :D Cupcakes would get her a muffin tin ;) and the pasta salads would get her bowls and serving utensils. ;D
All she needs is a pot to boil things in, can't figure out how this can be gifted. :-[  But pulled pork would end with a slow cooker.  :) Think of the possibilities. ;D

Jeff Foxworthy says,"You might be a redneck if all your salad bowls say Cool Whip on the side.
 I truly hope there are updates of some kind. :)
I do buy stuffed peppers in Mason jars and as a joke give the empty jars to my son, telling him it is part of his kitchen "china".  I just saw a gift catalog that had mason jar shot glasses.  Guess what he's getting from Santa this year. ::)

Please tell me that on the invitation there was at least a smiley face or something indicating they were being deliberately cheeky or at least passing it off as a joke?   It would still be just as horrifically rude, but personally I prefer rude, cheeky bores having a bit of a "go" to the completely ignorant rude bores...
