It’s The Thought That Counts… Unless The Thought Is “I Hate This Wedding Gift,” In Which Case It’s The Not-Sharing-The-Thought That Counts!

The Toronto Star reports that a bride at a Hamilton, Ontario, Canada wedding was so upset with a gift basket received that she wrote a nasty text message to one of the guests who gave the gift, and demanded to see a receipt.

What was in the gift basket? Jolly Rancher candies, chocolate chip cookies, some sort of marshmallow Fluff brand item, and other stuff you can see by clicking here.

What did the bride say about her gift? According to the article, she said this:

“I’m not sure if it’s the first wedding you have been to, but for your next wedding … people give envelopes. I lost out on $200 covering you and your dates plate . … and got fluffy whip and sour patch kids in return. Just a heads-up for the future.”

We’re not sure if the bride has been to many weddings, but it would have totally sucked if she got any of these:

3 Worse Things To Get In A Wedding Basket

1. Fluffy Whip and Sour Patch Kids in an envelope. Good luck unsealing that envelope on a hot June day! But if it is your second marriage and you invited the guests who gave you the basket last time, hoping they’d learn from your angry text, they did! They gave an envelope, just like you told them other people do.

Too bad we didn’t see any Angry Birds candy in the basket. Then the angry bride could have used slingshots to fire birds to show her disapproval. It still would have been disrespectful, but maybe misinterpreted as grateful playfulness.

2. Text messages congratulating the groom on marrying an understanding wife who will be happy just to have her friends and family present at all of their future life events. And if she texts anything back indicating otherwise, she does not appreciate how much work it takes to make a basket that receives text messages!

3. Tumbleweed. Because if your guests all have florists deliver tumbleweed to your wedding instead of showing up, when that tumbleweed eventually tumbles buy, you may want to reevaluate whether you have taken all your friends and family for granted.

Speaking of tumbleweed, is that a clue? Is this blog going on summer hiatus after 366 consecutive daily comedic entries? Tune in tomorrow to find out!
