I guess the new thing around here is not only going to the store and starting a gift registry if you’re getting married or having a baby but also sending out a list of gifts you might want for your up coming birthday. Has anyone else run into something like this? I have a friend that is having a big birthday party and they sent out this list of things they want.
One of the things was a set of ultrasone headphones. Personally I had no idea what they were other than just headphones so I did a search for them. Boy was I surprised at how expensive they were. Luckily I found some that were more reasonable than on some other sites. One thing is for sure, I would never send out a list of items I wanted like they did. I mean, it’s okay for a kid to give you a list of things they want but an adult??? I just found it odd, or is it me that’s the odd one here?
I’d love to hear anyone else’s thoughts on this. Times are always changing, new traditions always being brought into the picture. But who ultimately decides on what is the right thing to do. Think about it, we don’t even have the real Dear Abby or the real Dear Ann to turn to for “proper etiquette” to these days.No Comments »
