This is something that really gets me. At my old church there was a young girl going to become a mother. Me, haveing had my two children went over to her and offered her some baby stuff. She too did not have alot and me, not needing it any more wanted her to have it. She accepted the stuff but was very rude later on about it. The ladies from my moms group throw her a baby shower and let me tell you, she got everything she would need. all she had to do now was have the baby. But, she did not thank any of the ladies and made coments on some of the stuff she got. Its was not all new stuff and this got to her. How rude is this. Then after having her second 14 months later, was mad with all of us as this go round she did not get as much, the first was a boy and then a girl. All she needed was some girl stuff and let me say, thats what she got. What would you have done if this was some one you tried to help and got this reaction??????

I would probably feel hurt but then I would brush down my pride and wonder why she had reacted that way. Is she having problems , are their things on her mind etc or is she genuinely a rude and ungrateful woman? I would probably then just put it down to experience!

no she has no problems ,per to say. she is just one of those people who like to take and never give back. she has been like this since we all met her in church

I would actually feel sorry for her and her family as it seems that she will never be content with anything! xxx

She sounds very selfish. I wouldn't ever offer anything to her again. I think it's very rude to not say thanks for what was given to her. Even people that gave her stuff that they didn't need anymore should have been thanked because they could have given it to someone else or sold it at a yard sale and made money off of it. I can't stand it when people are so ungrateful like that. After my baby shower I sent thank you cards to everyone that gave me something and I thanked them for each thing they gave me.

I know how you must feel about her attitude to you and everyone that tried to help her. In situations like that i always tell myself that i have done the best i can and if it is not appreciated then that is their problem, I can feel good for helping and maybe one day they will realize how ungrateful they were and feel bad.One thing is for sure if they tell anyone aboutwhat you done to help and how she feels about it she will be the one that looks bad not you.

It is ungrateful and I can understand how annoyed you must be. It makes you wonder how she was brought up as manners begin at home, maybe she had a poor upbringing and this behaviour seems normal to her. I find if something like this happens to upset you then it helps to try to feel sorry for the person, like you say it has not helped her in any way so she obviously lacks the social skills necesssary for a happy and contented life.

thats true, i think that she has had a poor upbrining but there was no need for her to be so rude. we gave her the stuff out of love and been good christines for the child. i hope that later she will see her ways are not helping her and she will change, thanks for the response

I would have told her that she did not appreciate things the first time and should have had some of the things the second. If you overheard, maybe you should send her a note with no name attached. I hate those types of people.

I couldn't think of how to reply to this, so I read it to my husband. My son said he wouldn't help the girl anymore, but my husband had this to say: "Right after they made a comment about the stuff being used, I would take it back, throw it in the garbage in front of her"

well, yes we could of done that, but in another way we where thinking of the child and what he was going to need. not really her. its sad that she is like this and now, she has no help from that group of ladies and she can see what her rudness has done. but she is still this way
