Getting a bad gift can be super awkward, but would you ever actually tell someone as much?
A Reddit post sharing a rather ‘rude’ note from a bride has sparked some discussion online, with people sharing some of the worst wedding gifts they have ever received.
“Is this a rude bridezilla trait??” the poster asked sharing a photo of the note signed off by #honestbride.
It reads: “Thank you for the unique git. If you’re not buying off my registry, please include a gift receipt.”
The note prompted a bunch of people to reveal some of the horrendous wedding gifts they had received over the years, that they weren’t able to swap or return.
“We got a huge clear plastic seashell with a small clear plastic seashell and I still have no idea what the hell I was supposed to do with them. Awkward chip and dip set, perhaps,” one person said.
“We got a ‘junk drawer starter kit’ from a relative when we got married. Literally a box with a bunch of random crap in it,” another wrote.
“I mean... we all know that the crazy gifts NEVER come with a gift receipt! I got married over 18 years ago and some of the ones we got: Matching mustard sweat suits that were three sizes too big for my husband and I... a super old-school wall clock that was literally the opposite of our taste, which we had on our registry. We kept that f*cker in the box until we could donate it, years later.”
A few people didn’t agree with the note, saying that regardless of what they received you would never publicly say anything negative.
“I would never actually publicly say anything/send something out, but man oh man do you get weird wedding gifts. Someone got us lime green plates without a gift receipt. Pretty sure that was just a regift,” one person said.
Others thought a receipt should always be included with any gift, but still didn’t think demanding one was right.
“I mean, if you are going off-list it would be considerate to include a gift receipt, that said, I'm not a fan of demanding one,” one person said.
While another added: “It’s super rude to say, but I thought it so many times while unwrapping gifts.”
It was soon revealed the note was found on the website betchesbrides, which is known as a humour/satire account. Though we wouldn’t be surprised if it had been downloaded and actually used in real life.
