I said it jokingly. But mom looked like she was going to wet herself, so the poor saleswoman seemed to be nervous and overwhelmed so I felt bad even though I said it lightheartedly. It wasn’t a big deal; I knew she just grabbed a different girl’s paper off the printer. But I just felt really laid back about the whole wedding gift registry thing. I don’t need gifts for my wedding; I have everything I need already so I’d almost prefer wedding guests just buy us thoughtful little trinkets than a cooling rack for baking. And Adam’s family probably won’t be using our registry since I don’t think there are Macys in England. I’m really only planning to tell people about my wedding registry if they ask about it. I was just there for the free food tonight!
Well, before I left, she asked another saleswoman to get her “a bag,” and told me she wanted to give me a little gift to make up for the mix up. Again, I just smiled and said that’s very nice of her and thanked her. What I got was a very nice looking red tote bag, as well as a beautiful pair of wine glasses! So pair that with the free food and $50 gift card to a restaurant, and I’d say the Macys wedding gift registry event was a productive evening!
