Can't believe I forgot to tell you

I got invited to a honeymoon shower, complete with a poem about why I should give the bride and groom cash/gift cards/gas cards for their honeymoon. 

And it's for BSC bridesmaid who ruined my bachelorette party and has been rubbing it in my face all week that I wasn't invited to hers.  Good to know that I'm not good enough to go to the beach with her but that I am good enough to give her money.

If you missed it, this girl:

    Oh my word. People are ridiculous, I don't get how anyone thinks  that stuff is ok.

    Did you know, I didn't know your first name until someone said it to me? I was like who....? ohhh...
    Yea, I guess I was just going to meet you and be all like "hey heels!"

    Yowza.  Please publish the poem - those make my day. 


    P.s.  How do you feel today?

    I'm better, still really swolen but not much pain.  Thanks for asking!

    Here's the poem:

    * and * will soon be married
    Over the threshold she'll be carried
    but before they settle into wedded bliss
    A honeymoon trip they will not miss
    As friends and family of the two
    Here is what you're invited to do
    Shower them with gifts for the trip
    They will be traveling on their own
    Maybe cash, gas or a card for their phone
    Whatever you decide, I know
    They will be excited you helped them get gone

    Pennies.  Give her pennies.  Especially the old crusty ones you find under the seat in the car. 

    ETA:

    And your should totally post the poem for us to enjoy :)

    ETA: 

    you did :)  post the poem that is.
    No, that's not my real name. And FH's name isn't Nun (as in Nun ya bidness) either.

    Those poems are so ridiculously annoying, even more so because of all the slant rhyme and irregular numbers of syllables in the lines. If I ever got one of those, I might puke on it and then send it back.

    and corny.  I say 'shower' them with monopoly money then you'll be glad you helped them 'get gone'--HA!

    I'm shocked to see this coming from her.  She's very prim and proper.  I know she didn't send the invites, but surely she knew about it and allowed it to happen.  I'm not really sure what I'm going to do.  At this point, I wouldn't be surprised to not receive a wedding invitation.  If that's the case, monopoly money and a delete on FB are in order.

    I'm glad you're not in too much pain; hope the swelling goes down soon!

    That is one craptastic poem. 
    How about one in reply:

    You cut me out of your bachelorette.
    So this, therefore, is what you get:
    A bunch of cash from Monopoly
    and your tacky poem up for the world to see. 
    And one last, loving, wedding wish -
    I hope you get sunburn on your honeymoon, bitch!

    I received a wedding invitation that had registry information on it that read, "Jane and John wish to receive gifts toward their honeymoon in Mexico, www.honeyfund.com/brideandgroom " Then lower on the same card it read, "Checks and cash at the reception would also be greatly appreciated." I opened it and out loud said, "What the hell?!" FI looked at me, then down at what I was holding and immediately asked, "who f**ked up their invite?"

    I just don't understand where people think that kind of thing is okay. I don't even want to give them a gift. If I do it won't be money and I'll be bringing a mixing bowl or something to their wedding.

    FFS, that just made my day. OWN, you are a true poet. Heels, I think you should use OWN's poem and send her blank gift cards. She didn't ask for them to be loaded with anything .

    Oh, barf. If you're going to do that at least put some effort into it. It's not even a decent poem! Why not just write "Gimme $$$, plzkthx".

    Give them the Berenstein Bears' "Case of the Gimmies" or whatever it's called.

    I do plan on doing a honeymoon registry but I won't be listing it on the invite and there will also be a small gift registry along with an option to donate to a charity instead.
    And if you should die before me, ask if you can take a friend. Pick a flower, close your eyes,and drift away- STP

    Oh OWN, this is why I love thee!

    In general I don't have a problem with honeymoon registries (I know I know) but skip the wannabe poems. That is just craptastic.

    OWN - awesome poem. *tips hat*

    I read the Berensten Bears' "Case of the Gimmes" when I was younger. It made me feel bad, because I always felt selfish and spoiled after I read it.

    I vote for OWN's poem along with a $1 gift card to BBB. Perfection!
