Hmm - never looked at it that way. Why it's always good to get new perspectives.

You are a lovely person :) I read back what i wrote and saw it could be seen as aggressive, so was going to change it. And then I saw your post. Seriously, you are just nice.

Goodness, I just want to shake all the brides who think this way. Have a wedding YOU CAN AFFORD. If you need your guests to pay for the wedding, you've spent too much money.

And anyone who calls out their guests for "coming for free" should be consigned to a very Special area of eHell.

There is a thread on that very exchange going on right now. It's sad that the guest had already attended the wedding, and therefore couldn't simply bow out when finding out about the monetary "requirement".

I like this grandma, she handled the situation well, and I hope the man learned something!

Where is the wedding thread?
If wisdom’s ways you wisely seek,
Five things observe with care,
To whom you speak,
Of whom you speak,
And how, and when, and where.

No handicapped plate/ placard ? Grandma should have turned him in.

It's a good story - go grandma! However, like a lot of the not always right ones, I do wonder about it.

The grandma had to park further away and walked with a cane yet managed to catch up with the young guy who stole her parking spot?

It is possible if he parked there to wait for someone, perhaps, that she would have caught up with him. Maybe he got out of the car to wait and that's when the grandma had a chance to talk with him.

Still, I'm suspicious of the ones that have storybook endings like this.

Yeah, a lot of the entries on there sound entirely plausible except for the ". . . and then the manager banned them from the store forever!" or ". . . and then she got fired and I got a raise!" endings.  I'm guessing people have something genuinely site-worthy happen to them, but they're missing a resolution so they feel the need to add one.

Orrrr 'and then he turned as white as a sheet and ran out of the store'. Lots of people running out of stores on that site.
