We get that first birthday parties are big deal for the parents of the guest of honor, but for everyone else, it’s just a party with cake and a toddler who’s probably overwhelmed by the entire thing. So when Reddit user razz32 posted what can easily be considered the most demanding invitation to their little one’s birthday party, it’s no wonder that the letter went viral. Take a look at the letter, below:
Among the charming lines in the invitation:
„If you are unable to get these items [a Water Table, a Play Tunnel, a Play Tent, or a Fill in the Missing Cheerios book], please let us know so we can buy them right away for him.“
„If you choose to get [redacted] something that isn’t on this list, anytime regardless of birthdays or holidays, please be sure to always include a receipt going forward. When we return items without receipts, we only get about 50 percent of the value, so it is like throwing away money if you don’t include a receipt with the gifts.“
„Please refrain from any personalized gifts that would be used outside of the house. Clothing with names is the No. 1 thing that leads to kidnapping, so we don’t need to broadcast [redacted]’s name on clothing or toys. ([Redacted] is getting a personalized gift from [redacted], but it will only be used inside the house.)“
They even threw in a line telling family members that they „return items that he doesn’t need to get formula instead.“
The post currently has more than 6,000 comments on Reddit and more than 2 million views on Imgur. No one’s come forward claiming to have sent the letter, but we’re willing to bet they’ll think again before sending out anything before the holidays.
