^Yes, if the bride and groom aren't registered, I'm sure some guests are lost.  So, some people just register out of social obligation, not because they are looking for a handout.  Remember, even extremely wealthy people who don't need anything still register when they are getting married (or for a first baby.) 

I agree that the "wishing well" is asking for a handout and really shouldn't be used except in the case of a very young couple who really are just starting out.

If I ever get remarried, I'd be tempted to register only for sporting goods and gardening supplies.  Oh, and my other half sometimes moans that my unmatched and flimsy goodwill silverware is not up to snuff, so maybe just register for that.  Is that tacky?  Probably, but it would give people who insist on buying a gift some ideas.

Oh, I don't care that they registered.  I know that many people want to send a gift and would ask about a registry.  It was the ask for cash that really irked me.  They just bought a $600K house for cash and were on a hiatus from working two lucrative careers.  And there was no disclaimer about "your company is the best gift" or "we want for nothing" or whatever.  The tone was "here is what to give us."

I'm okay with "No Boxed Gifts" on invites for things like a wedding.

Gift cards and cash really go a lot further in helping a newly married couple set up life.

But 4 parties to ask for cash is being too greedy to me.

I don't need anything... I want cash.  Nothing is fine too.

Partly overheard on FB/partly in person...

I have visited their place since the wedding and the only changes I can see is one IKEA closet and a lot of shonky shelves that her brother built - if they used all their wishing well money on those improvements (!) they were heavily ripped off.


This is my new favorite word - now to find a chance to use it, thanks!


You're welcome! I was actually going to use 'dodgy' or its more descriptive cousin 'dodgy arse' but wasn't sure how they would translate from Australia to the US.

I can't wait to see how this one turns out:

(paraphrased)
(poster was just complaining about getting his wages garnished for some court/rehab related issues)

Poster: Feels good to be a lottery winner, and I didn't even have to enter! $10,000 will get me a car and pay off my fines to get my license back.

Posters Dad: Be careful. Make sure you don't need to give them any banking details or pay any fees first.

Poster: I think I know how to take care of myself dad!

It must have worked out. I saw the pics of the new car on FB. Bought a used lexus. Think it was cash.

Obviously short-sighted since he just bought the auto, but it's always correct to switch to a manual transmission from an automatic.

Of course, I'm a car guy, so YMMV. :)

Someone just posted on Facebook a $225 necklace her husband got her for mother's day. Just this winter she had posted a status about the heat being shut off in their place because they didn't have enough money to pay for it. I just don't get it....

It'd be 'whomever' if the phrase had stopped at 'to whomever'.

Since the phrase went on, it should be parsed as 'to [whoever can sell my car]', where 'whoever' is the subject of 'can sell' etc.

I can't come up with any excuse for the rest of his reasoning, however... :-)

All sound good to me, though anything with "arse" in it would reveal your likely location to be England or Australia.

Here, we like to use the term "cattywompus", though I think the technical definition is "something that's askew". Used in a sentence: Our first house was all cattywompus.

Hahaha, that's asking a lot of young people. I don't think any of my friends know what brand of kitchen pots we have, or if we even have kitchen pots to begin with. If I had a wedding tomorrow without a registry, all I would get would be golf balls and copious quantities of cheap liquor.

I have a facebook friend who appears to be very mustachian - so much so that he does not want to pay to go to the doctor! A few weeks ago he posted pictures of a rash he had on a daily basis (because, obviously seeing the daily progression of the rash would help us facebookers diagnose him) begging for identification/assistance. Pretty much everyone who commented got it right: It was poison oak. The only problem was, it was a really bad case, so even with it "diagnosed," their over-the-counter solutions were unhelpful. He finally sucked it up and went to the doctor and got a prescription, but I have to think that his symptoms could have improved more quickly if he had seen a doctor at an appropriate time.

I couldn't figure out whether to feel bad for the guy (because he was in pain), annoyed with him (because he chose not to get insurance which was really the heart of the problem), or to laugh (because it was just so absolutely bizarre to post pictures of one's rash on the internet!). - I mostly chose option #3.

Sadly, having insurance doesn't always solve that problem.  My husband has insurance and still refuses to go to the doctor for anything.  If I'm lucky, he might ask one of our med friends about something bothering him.  He hasn't gone in about 10 years - yet complains frequently about things and occassionally wonders if he has cancer of a certain type (he works in that field).

Even if it works out ok, I'm not sure that's a sound statement. Everyone, no matter how healthy, has a chance of coming down with something serious/life-threatening/expensive. Even leaving out something like cancer (which can strike young people; I have 3 friends close to my age who have dealt with various kinds, and I'm 25!) there is always the possibility of injury due to accident.

Living without health insurance (at least high-deductible/catastrophic kind) is not frugal, it's cheap.

There used to be a bar in Melbourne that sold Pan-Galactic Gargle Blasters. Some green concoction with dry ice to make mist. It was about $30 for a cocktail from memory, but held close to 10 standard drinks so was actually a pretty Mustachian way to get tanked when you were an 18 year old student.

FBF: Shoe packing today. Every woman's nightmare  [see attached]

Me:  O______O

I thought my 9 pairs of shoes were excessive.

EDIT: Are these all YOURS?!?!?

FBF: This isn't even all of them. A few are Mia at the moment and some have already moved. [My fiance] has no idea how many I have. He's asleep now. He's gonna throw a fit when he wakes up!

WTF!

Maybe she's saving money in the long run by making a house out of her shoes.

(Current annual spending x 25) - (4% withdrawal rate x 30 years) = 42

We have a winner :)

We can now end this thread.  So long, and thanks for all the fish!
