When you have an important occasion combined with entitled family members, it’s a drama not unlike a soap opera waiting to happen. Though usually the room temp soars during wedding planning, birthdays and baby showers can also put a lot of pressure on guests.
Especially if there’s also a generous gift registration list involved, and you can’t really afford getting them. Such a story comes from this 26-year-old university student woman who was invited to her cousin’s second baby shower.
The author who shared the incident on r/AITA said that she was planning on making a handmade blanket for the child, since it’s “a nice personalized gift that you can’t get anywhere else.”But the cousin, Beth, was less than impressed with the idea.
In fact, Beth went as far as telling her “it was homemade [and] it looked ‘tacky’ and it made her look cheap for not having a tag attached to it.” Let’s read the full story right below and let us know what you think of it in the comment section!
