Greedy parents throw worst baby shower ever

Greedy parents throw worst baby shower ever. Forget nappies with chocolate poo and guess the baby’s weight games. Just when you thought baby showers couldn’t get any more cringe-worthy, this mum-to-be comes along.

Parenting site have uncovered this gem of a poem, sent in by one of their readers who decided not to attend the baby shower of an “acquaintance, if you can even call her that. They sat next to each other at graduation and they have some mutual friends in common, but they are not friends. I repeat, they are not friends.”

After the shower had been thrown, the woman received this poem:

We’re sorry you missed the shower!
There was fun and games to be had
The food and drinks not too bad
The loot was a plenty
But we looked high and low and found none from you
Not even a shiny penny!
Babies need a lot
Of this fact we all know
So we’ve included some shops below!
If none are to your liking, and that we understand
Then grab a pen and get to writing
For checks are to our liking!
The *** Family is registered at these stores and checks can be mailed to this address.

In short, even though you didn’t come to the baby shower, we still want a present from you. But the story gets worse.

If you happen to attend the aforementioned shower but your present wasn’t to the family’s liking, this was the poem you would have received — we kid you not:

We loved seeing you at the shower
Remember how the gifts they did tower?
We sorted them for hours
Upon sifting and sorting we noticed something amiss
For your gift didn’t match the list
To fix your situation we listed our stores below
But a check could also help us flow!
