My mum always taught me to be grateful for gifts, but clearly, this bride’s mum didn’t share the same values. This newly-wed was furious that a close mate had the audacity to gift her a very cheap Kmart gift.
The woman, who hails from Queensland, has vented on a Facebook group complaining that she was disgusted that her bestie had given her a cheap Kmart gift.
She said that her friend’s family (including the friend’s husband and kids) had gifted her two $5 Kmart towels, even though they were special guests at the very “exclusive” wedding.
She said the thoughtless Kmart gift was a “slap in the face” and very hurtful.
This Hurt Us A Lot!
Her post read:
“Has anyone received any wedding gifts in the past that were a slap in the face? How did you deal with it?
“My partner and I had a very exclusive wedding, all inclusive and the focus was our guests.
“Our best friend, husband and kids knew this and gifted us two Kmart towels, a total value of about $10.
“This hurt us a lot, as it was a slap in the face. We don’t know how to deal with it.”
The bride was obviously expecting lots of sympathy and affirmation that her gripe was justified. But instead, the majority of the commenters accused her of being “shallow” and “mean”.
“Are you actually serious? It’s not about what you get out of it,” said one.
“Maybe it’s all they can afford?” suggested another.
“Be thankful they wanted to be there to celebrate your special day and focus on the qualities in their personalities rather than the material items they may or may not have given you,” advised one person.
“Those people who only care about getting gifts really frustrate the hell out of me. At this rate, my wedding will be the first time I see my parents in two years (by that stage), my sister in about three years and my best friends in five years … all because of this freaking virus.”
I Would Love A Kmart Gift!
Others said they would be thrilled to receive a Kmart gift:
“Kmart towels are an awesome gift, who cares how much they cost. What a shallow person.”
