I have to buy you a gift??

Anyone else have family that you never see until they have an “event” which requires you to buy them a gift? My second cousin is getting married and having a bridal shower. I have not seen or spoken this girl since her high school graduation party 7 years ago, where she threw a temper tantrum because her parents wouldn’t let her leave with her friends (so she went inside and wouldn’t come out, not that she was interacting with anyone other than her friends anyways. Anyone who talked to her got a short answer- where are you going to school? Columbus. Where in Columbus? There are several schools in Columbus.) She doesn’t come to anything- general get-together’s, weddings, showers, funerals. Her parents (who are at everything) always say she had “other plans”. I’ll go because I enjoy seeing the extended family, but it annoys me to spend my hard earned money (twice. Shower and wedding) on someone who, I pretty much, don’t know. What is everyone else’s feeling on this? BTW- Nothing on the bridal registry is less than $50.

Notifiy me with emails too

If you go a small gift would suffice. Don't you hate it when people only contact you when they want something?

lol my family TOTALLY does this too! I feel for you! I would get her something small too.. I can't believe she doesn't have anything less than $50 on her registry! I would just give her a small gift card...

Yeah, just think of as going to see people you might actually want to see. And it's an excuse to dress up and have some good food.
