Okay I have a problem. I need some advice.
I was chosen as the lucky person to collect money from my colleagues to buy another colleague a baby gift. She is 8 months pregnant, and we thought this would be a nice gesture. I bought a gift card to a baby store for 75$, and I bought varoius other items OFF OF THE REGISTRY. One of the items were some cute little recieving blankets, from her registry, that fit the style of how they are decorating the baby's room. We are going to meet to give her gifts today after work.
So here's the issue. There is another girl that is pregnant on staff. Today, the first pregnant girl was asking the second one if she needed any recieving blankets. She went garage saling and bought so many she doesn't know what to do with all of them. Ummm...I just bought her THREE MORE because they were on her registry! (And htey were not marked as having been bought.) I am just frustrated right now. I do have the gift reciepts for her, but it's goin to be awkard giving her this present 3 hours after listening to her talk about how she has so many she doesn't need anymore.
I am half tempted to just take them out and return them, but part of me thinks that would be stupid. I will probably leave them in the gift bag, with the gift reciept, so she can take them back if she wants.
But why ask for things you don't need and are trying to get rid of? I feel so stupid now.
