This is the story of how a jar of marshmallow fluff ruined a friendship, clouded a joyful wedding day, and sparked debate across the Internet.
It all began on Wednesday, when the Hamilton Spectator published a letter from a disgruntled wedding guest, detailing his text battle over a gift he had sent a newly married co-worker.

Kathy Mason and her boyfriend (who chose to remain anonymous) attended the wedding of two Canadian women, and things went afoul from there. Mason's boyfriend, who sent his story, along with a hostile text exchange with the brides, to the Spectator wrote the following: "As a gift, my Girlfriend and I gave them a wicker box with a hinged lid, filled with food items, most of them PC Black Label, including: tri-color pasta, salsas, Balsamic vinegar and Olive oil, Gourmet croutons, Panko Breading, Pesto, some baking ingredients, Biscuits from Godiva and a few 'Fun' items like Marshmallow Fluff, Sour Patch Kids and Butterscotch sauce
This was too long for me to read the whole thing,:oops: but I get the gist. I thought the gift he gave was actually a cute idea. Weddings are not to "get money" if that were the case, you could "get money" by SKIPPING the wedding and pocketing what you would have spent. They are to share your union with friends and family. This has to be the most disrespectful, ungrateful bunch of BS I've ever heard. They are pretty much saying, "We don't see you as a friend, but a dollar sign." Whatta' buncha' b***hes.
How greedy. They should have said thank you. Can't use it? I bet a food pantry would have loved that donation. It was a very sweet idea.

:!: Ungrateful ladies at least they got something for them and I thought that was a cute idea. They wanted a big wedding they wanted to pay $100 per person that was their choice.
I posted this about an hour ago. :) If anyone wants to come and chat in it.

Well the brides said " Weddings are to make money for your future. Not to pay for peoples meals" how tacky If that's the case skip the wedding! I thought his gift was cute all it was missing is some wine lol
Saw this on a fb post. Stuck up snobs is what they are. What bs!! I like the others response-dog shit in an envelope :) money is welcome as a gift but not a requirement. Shoot some of the weddings I've been to lately the newlyweds were lucky to get anything in form of a gift. Nowadays it's considered a "gift" if u can even attend someone's wedding bc of the out of pocket costs for travel/lodging, etc.
I think the food basket was a sweet idea. Should've went on a picnic instead of asking for the damn receipt!
Omg the brides are sooooo outta line. You do not expect or demand money fora wedding gift. That is crazy! A wedding is for celebrating your love. When I throw a party I cover dinner. Simple common courtesy, seems more people need to be taught this.
I only read a little bit and that was enough. I think GIFTS are just that GIFTS; meaning they are not mandatory. I think that was a b***h move on the brides' part.
