If you don't ask, you don't get, so the saying goes – and this cheeky mum-to-be certainly didn't hold back when she told her friends what she wanted for her baby shower.
But if the chutzpah of the requests wasn't enough, she also delivered them in verse. Ker-inge!
The shameless pregnant mum apparently sent letters to all of those who didn't attend the shower with the following rhyme, which appeared on online parenting website Mommyish.
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 [name blocked out] Family is registered at these stores and checks [sic] can be mailed to this address
It would seem not even guests who did cough up escaped her poetic demands either. She apparently sent an equally-annoying poem to 'friends' who dared to buy gifts not on the approved list.
Telling them to 'fix' their situation, our fair lady asks them to exchange their gift for something on the list – or send her a cheque instead:
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!
What a cheek! Let's hope she gets a cupboard full of breast milk expressing machines!
