I have had two people in my life that gave me a card in the last year with a promise to do an event/activity with me. One was a graduation gift and another was a bday gift. What is the protocol to cash it in? It's somewhat awkward to say "hey, you know that gift you promised me?"
Jay was like "what type of shit is that?... "I want to be able to do that." It made me feel like
1.) They didn't have money to buy a gift, so why bring it up now in case that is the real reason
2.) They didn't take the time to get a gift so this was a last stitch effort
Isn't this why gift cards/certificate were invented? I mean I am super excited to get my massage/Spa day and trip to Catalina Island, but I guess I am SOL right?
Is there a protocol for asking for the gift or is that tacky? Shouldn't the other person just bring it up??? HELP!
