So, after I thought, hoped, I had seen the last of her and DH had not heard from her nor had she returned any of the phone calls he did make, I get this invite in the mail.
One of our relations is getting married and Twit has decided to give her a shower featuring that pricey kitchen stuff she sells. Guess we are to attend and the bride-to-be will be there and she will direct us to what the bride wants or might need in this stuff.
Okay, this might be petty, but I find it very distasteful. I see it as a way to use us, and the bride, to sell pricey cookware etc. to benefit herself.
Sooo, I asked DH to call her about the invite, which he did, and ask if there is a family discount as we are family as are most of the people who are going to be there, and the bride will be family soon as well. Twit's answer....NO, no discounts. She feels that people would go out and buy something at other places for a regular shower so her stuff should be no different. Plus, we get to pay, individually, for the shipping (which is around $5.00 per order). She makes up to 31% on most items she sells along with other bonuses and perks.
I don't know, I just find this somewhat ickey as well as Twit manipulative to make a buck off us. I personally don't care for what she sells, but then I have Al-Clad (made in the USA and not in China like Twit's stuff I might add).
BTW, her relationship to the groom is an aunt through marriage (her hubby's brother's son is the groom). Neither DH nor I know the the father of the groom, or the groom well, and have only met the BTB twice at the most and will probably not even be invited to the wedding. The only times we have run into the father is a few, very few times at Twit's place in the past (probably about 3 or 4 times)
I guess I feel like once again Twit is trying to use me.
I don't know...it just rubs me the wrong way
