I had to pick up a wedding gift at Bed Bath and Beyond today. The man at the gift registry counter explained how everything on the registry printout was organized, which was nice of him, but completely unnecessary. He then went into a spiel about how there were items in a variety of price ranges on the registry. I suppose that he sized up my budget based on my attire, and pointed out the cheapest item on the list (napkin rings, $1.99 each). Granted, I was wearing an ensemble feature a pair of shorts with several nasty stains on them, including, but not limited to, chain grease, cable grease, and blood. He then told me to remember to buy something for myself. I ended up getting the lucky couple a wonderful and quite pricey piece of cookware. I just hope that when I get married, my friends shower me with All-clad products.
