Well, not really. Just lazy. And busy. Seriously, this etiquette stuff kills me. These archaic rules were meant for jobless housewives, not professional career women who work 60 to 80 hours a week.
Aside from cash gifts, we haven't even opened our stuff! We've been dating for six years and living together for four years. We have everything we need already, but etiquette dictates that we couldn't ask for cash. Now we are stuck with a mountain of unopened cardboard boxes sitting in our dining room, most of which contain things for which we have little or no use. It's a veritable Fort o' Gifts. I wouldn't be surprised if we found some homeless dude chillin' at the bottom of the stack.
Maybe I can ask him to write our damn thank you cards.
