I know most my friends feel the same because we all discuss what we are going to buy, what we are planning...
Today we went to a birthday brunch. The birthday girls happens to be leaving the country soon and we all feel a bit funny about it. Happy for her and her new adventure and selfishly sad because she is leaving us.
I was chatting with my friend "X" while she was placing the present at the "gift section the party, when this woman comes rushing and says:
- Is this the card for the big gift? The one in the yellow bags?
- hmmmm, yes.
Without further ado, she took the card from X's hand, wrote her own name and a message for the birthday friend and left. As if it was the most common thing to do.
I kept thinking to myself:
Was that a genuine mistake? Or is is just a way of life? If you forget/choose not to buy the hostess a gift, do you just sign on the biggest present's card and pretend it is from you as well?
Unfortunately X was speechless and did not say anything, which was a big pity.
