So, a good friend of mine keeps griping about how much she hated her baby shower last year. It was pretty disorganized, and it was hosted by the father to be...which...yikes. Now she's griping that one of her co-workers is pregnant and was thrown a shower at work recently, when she didn't get a work shower.
She's friendly, but not particularly close with any of her co-workers, so I'm not really sure why she "expected" one? As far as I know, I'm not getting a "work baby shower" and the two other pregnant women in my office are, and it doesn't bother me at all. I'm also friendly, but not close with my co-workers, but regardless no one is "entitled" to a shower, much less a work baby shower!
She keeps going on and on about how it's a huge slight, and how she was in tears after this co-workers baby shower...Then she came to my baby shower this past weekend and proclaimed that she was going to ask my mom to host her next baby shower since my mom did a better job than her boyfriend (!!) I couldn't take any of her griping about her baby shower situations, so I changed the subject and I asked her where she got her "thank you" cards from since I had gone to the pharmacy and couldn't find any "packs" only singles. Her response was "oh I actually didn't send any, I didn't even think about that" Sigh...I never got one from her, but I figured it went to my old apartment since I was moving right around that time. Considering this is coming from the same person who plans on hosting her own jack and jill *AND* engagement party/shower I shouldn't be surprised.
Should I politely let her know that she's being uber tacky, or just let her shoot herself in the foot? I would want to know if I was being rude/ungracious/tacky, I'm assuming she just doesn't know any better.
