Field Trip!

I seriously need to know if "How can we get our guests to give us cash without having to dance with them?"  is going to be the new question everybody asks.

If if is, I really might just have to GBCK for good.

    What is it about weddings that turns people into such money-grubbing monsters?

    Between all the dollar dance alternative questions, brides throwing hissy fits over $7, and not wanting to feed your guests, I'm just about ready to lose my faith in humankind.

    Apparently all the regs from Snarky brides took up residence in the Carribean on The Nest. Stage, maybe we need to just find a new home over there.

    But, Stina, someone has to stand against all the crazy.

    I try to remember that every now and then we get a poster who actually hears us when we say "that's rude."  And if we all take off because of the crazy people, those people will only get those responses that say "Hey it's your day!!!! Do whatever you want, you special unique snowflake!!!!!!"

    That SOMEONE will be someone other than me, I fear. There are days that I love it here and days that I want to throw the computer.

    I still have fun sometimes. But I've been noticing my patience getting thinner and thinner ... and I'll get home from work and see all of these "waaaaa" posts, and I just feel like "Why bother? It's 20 posts in, and OP still thinks we're the rude people, clearly, she's not going to learn".

    I'm not even married yet, but I want to shake some of the idiots that come on here.

     I mean, I am managing to feed all of my guests, not try to invite random people to any shower that might be thrown for me, not kick people out of my wedding, and not ask for money on my invitatoin or through a dollar dance. If I can respect what is an isn't proper, so can you, and I really don't want to hear why you are special.

    Newsflash, you aren't. You are just another idiot with a sense of entitlement.

    okay, rant over.

    But, I do love talking to the sane people on here!

    [QUOTE]If you want to read another one, there's a girl on the gifts board that honestly doesn't understand why it would be tacky to register for cash.   I honestly wonder if these people were raised in a barn.

    I ran it by FI, he says we can't move up the date...something to do with deposits and such.

    Stina, we COULD meet in the hood and talk weddings!

    ...and how do you "register for cash"? Is that with Target or BB&B?
