Any chance this gimme-momma is Sue from Glitter's thread?
I don't think I've seen this one, link? LOL
And yeah, the takes a village thing is super annoying. The "village" is not the entirety of the internet and yes, demands a level of reciprocity. Which from below you can see is not exactly forthcoming...
I do surprisingly have updates, though not "techno-quette."
(1) DH and I were surprised to receive an envelope in the mail from Sally and her husband this past Saturday. At first we thought it might be a small shower gift since they were unable to make it out to our shower (not required but it would have been a nice gesture), or perhaps a thank you note for the gift we sent them. Nope. It was a custom birth announcement on a high quality stationary. Normally I wouldn't comment on how much such a thing would cost...but this was clearly not cheap. The kicker? It came with an additional small envelope attached noting that there was insufficient postage, so the post office wants charge DH & I 0.21.
(2) If she has noticed that I blocked her there is no indication, though it seems she may have caught on that people aren't going to just give her money. I get a mass email about how she's considering a new "business opportunity" (though she assures us its nothing "tacky" like a product party) and asking her "girls" for a favor. I don't think I will be responding.
I wish I was making this up. I don't know how someone can go from relatively normal to bat-crazy so quickly...
