The last time I visited my sister-in-law's house, I found a freaking BED BUG on my clothes after we left! And it's not her fault-- she moved into a rental unit with some old carpet. But, still. I looked up pictures on the internet to be sure, and yessiree, it looked just like the pictures. So I threw all of those clothes away and made my husband do the same.
Here is my dilemma: She has purchased several baby items for us without asking (such as a pack n' play, clothes, bouncy seat). But if all of that has been sitting in her house for the past few weeks, I don't even want those things in my car. How do I refuse without being rude?? I never told her that I found a bug. I don't want to hurt her feelings or make it seem like I am not appreciative of her gifts. But there is no way in HECK that my baby is going to use anything that might have collected some new residents while sitting in my sister-in-law's living room.
