Posted alongside a picture of a massive pile of presents.....

Thank you to everyone who came to xxxx's baby shower today, we are going to make a fortune on EBay!

So glad I didn't go or buy them a present!

Are you sure it wasn't a joke?

AugustaFinkNottle Sun 27-Mar-16 23:32:16

Well, that's one way to make sure no-one ever gives you a present again.

WorraLiberty Sun 27-Mar-16 23:33:17

Haha! That's the sort of thing I'd say tbugrin

In my wildest dreams I couldn't imagine anyone on my friend list taking it so seriously, that they started a thread on another forum.

milkysmum Sun 27-Mar-16 23:33:59

I would take that as a joke to be honest!

WorraLiberty Sun 27-Mar-16 23:34:09

And if they did and I got wind of it, I'd think of another 101 ways to wind them up tbuwink

CatThiefKeith Sun 27-Mar-16 23:34:29

There's history Worra. I truly believe he's only half joking...

Floggingmolly Sun 27-Mar-16 23:34:35

Not an a particularly funny joke... God love them, thinking that was appropriate.
They must be quite breathtakingly thick.

DancingDinosaur Sun 27-Mar-16 23:34:48


Maybe it was a joke with reference to a conversation at the shower? Nobody would be that publicly obnoxious, would they?

You're being ridiculous no matter what the history, if you think they're seriously telling the gift givers their gifts are going to be sold on.

CatThiefKeith Sun 27-Mar-16 23:36:49

In fairness I'm probably still holding a grudge.

He's dh's best mate and Ebayed the patio set I lent them for a BBQ last summer.

WorraLiberty Sun 27-Mar-16 23:38:05

And did he announce on FB that he would be Ebaying your patio set?

CatThiefKeith Sun 27-Mar-16 23:39:58

No, just mentioned it when I asked to pick it up 3 weeks later.

WhoTheFuckIsSimon Sun 27-Mar-16 23:40:12

I hope you've replied with a suitably sarcastic comment about your patio set? grin

hesterton Sun 27-Mar-16 23:41:30

He did WHAT??

Blimey that's appalling.

fuzzywuzzy Sun 27-Mar-16 23:42:43

Wow, did you get the money back he made for the patio set?

lamiashiro Sun 27-Mar-16 23:42:51

Oh, I dunno. ExSiL was famous in our family for ebaying nearly everything we bought for her or the kids. One Christmas, I got her a really pretty silver charm bracelet which she'd said she liked. By new year it was on eBay listed as an 'unwanted present cos I prefer gold'. Never bought her anything again. Ungrateful caahh.

CatThiefKeith Sun 27-Mar-16 23:46:41

Dh has made me promise I won't comment.

No I bloody didn't get the money. I got a couple of broken deck chairs back as they had forgotten who gave them what apparently. hmm

bluebellforest Sun 27-Mar-16 23:50:55

Sorry, but I can't get passed the fact that he Ebayed your patio set. WTF, cheeky bastard. I would have the rage with him forever. shock angry
Please come back and explain how he thought selling your stuff was okay.
What did he say? What did you say? What happened after? Did he replace the patio set? Ìf not, why not?
My head just can't get round this confused grin

bettyberry Sun 27-Mar-16 23:51:12

I'd post a picture of the patio set. That's not commenting just sharing a photo grin

FeelingSmurfy Sun 27-Mar-16 23:54:16

Oh I think I remember that, did you post about it?

I would have thought they were joking, but if it was that person I would be fuming, even if I hadn't bought anything!

fabricbag Sun 27-Mar-16 23:54:17

Haha yes do what Betty said grin

CatThiefKeith Sun 27-Mar-16 23:54:39

They had a massive BBQ / party, I lent my table and chairs, a couple of people gave them chairs, and they picked up another set on a free FB site.

He then Ebayed all of it, and I got back two vintage and broken deck chairs.
