So Dp got a text from his dad saying I have camera on lay by on at so and so and can we go put $$$ on it for him instead of a gift
Now normally, we ask Dp's mum if there is anything that the dad would like or needs for his birthday before we go out and buy something for him.
This year, we hadn't spoken to MIL about it and before we knew it 4 weeks before his Birthday he sent us this text.
When my Dp told me, I just laughed as I thought he was joking. I made some joke about having a lay by on at Big W and can he go pay that off
Anyway, it wouldnt of bothered me if we had asked MIL and she replied with the idea, but to message himself asking I think is quite rude.
I actually would love it if everyone pitched in and bought something big and fantastic for dd, dp or myself but it seems so un-personal to me
Am I the only one who thinks this ???
