farewell occassion

by Barbara
(Connecticut)

Is money the only gift to give as a farewell gift to my 25 year old granddaughter as she is leaving the state to work at a new job.


The invitation reads 'drop in' anytime between 2 to 5 pm. This particular granddaughter rarely sends a thank you or rarely calls etc......... I have reached out many times and was very generous with her pursuits etc.....I never receive a thank you. Once she emailed me 'the money came in handy'. A very good amount of money!

What is your advice on this situation?........ I had babysit. Many many times when she was little. she always was allowed to. make tents out of my seat couches. and I was always helpful........ it wasn't easy as I have a daughter with. 'A thought disorder'. And as a RN I worked weekends. I hardly hear from her mother now. and my son is the same. I think a gift would be nice but don't know what to get as she has a particular style etc. She also is professional.

Thank you.

From a grandmother that feels like a rug.

Hello Barbara,

Your granddaughter has very poor manners, acts rudely and clearly does not value your generosity. Why give her anything except a card. That's what you want to do and exactly what she deserves.

Be strong. She needs to feel a consequence of her selfish actions.
