A local card shop is reducing all their baking supplies and baby shower decorations. Snag is they only have pink or blue.

Wibu to ask her to confirm to me which she is having so I can snap up a bargain?

You're not serious, are you?!

But it all coordinated with teddies and cup cake boxes etc! Soooo cute!

Well, I don't think your opinion will come into it to be honest. She either wants to or she doesn't.

Obviously that's totally unreasonable but I guess this is a joke anyways.

Buy it all! Unless you only have 1 friend for the rest of your life, chances are you'll use it.

YBVU. If they're that cheap, buy one of each. Someone else will have a baby at some point of the other colour. And anyway, why only pink or blue, why not something neutral?

Its nothing to do with you tbh!

Just gethalf pink and half blue and decorate the room with a mixture, although I'm hoping your only half serious about having a baby shower.

Can't you arrange a mint or lemon colour instead? far nicer than pink or blue, which always look inedible

It won't be a bargain if she buys both - make her find out, it's only fair wink

Zara1984 Fri 15-Mar-13 18:20:43

Ohhh I get it now, you are being bitchy and snooty about baby showers in general. hmm

Here, my first ever biscuit

StuntGirl Fri 15-Mar-13 18:21:24

If this isn't a joke you're an idiot.

AThingInYourLife Fri 15-Mar-13 18:23:11

Get a mixture!

Minkus Fri 15-Mar-13 18:23:39

Oh lighten up! Op's tongue is v firmly in her cheek. if you can find something offensive in her post I think you have far too much time on your hands. Snooty? She's making a joke!

Minkus Fri 15-Mar-13 18:24:37

(I hope. You are joking aren't you op?!)

HairyHandedTrucker Fri 15-Mar-13 18:24:47

I'm fairly sure op is joking... but would be ever so slightly ur op wink

XBenedict Fri 15-Mar-13 18:25:27

Of course she's joking!

HairyHandedTrucker Fri 15-Mar-13 18:25:41

actually I'd buy all if it as it's bound to come in handy. hate blue and pink for babies... but can't fight a bargain

TheProfiteroleThief Fri 15-Mar-13 18:42:46

Of course I am joking!

Yes I will throw a shower. I think they are lovely and womanly and bonding.

I was just laughing at my frustration at possibly missing a bargain!

Zara1984 Fri 15-Mar-13 18:44:57

Ok then sorry OP grin

There have just been a lot of sly baby shower snooty threads of late!

Buy both, bargainlicious!

NippyDrips Fri 15-Mar-13 18:55:34

Hmm it might be slightly unreasonable.

HeadfirstForHalos Fri 15-Mar-13 18:58:56

Get half blue, half pink of everything?

TheProfiteroleThief Fri 15-Mar-13 19:00:14

Actually, by mn standards I am v unreasonable as it is not even a first baby!

It is actually her fourth, but I reckon by is point, she deserves a bit of fuss and spoiling. First baby is a big deal, but no 4 everyone lets you just soldier on!

Sounds equally vile in blue or pink.
