The Rudeness of Registries

On Father's Day and my birthday, I ask for two things: Breakfast in Bed, and the remote control. Anything else is a bonus. My oldest daughter and her husband bought me some Orioles gear (hat & shirt), a bag of chips, and a large glass mug, suitably engraved. I was very pleasantly surprised. My teenage son bought a USMC t-shirt (served in the 80s). Again, pleasantly surprised. For Christmas, my mother-in-law buys me a new hat. Each time, it's very nice, and I like it a lot. My wife asks me what I want. Then she gets it for me. Registries are gimmie-gimmie-gimmie lists. At our wedding nearly 30 years ago, we got plenty of practical stuff. But we were more interested in the presence of our friends and family. Not the presents. Grow up. You're not ten years old anymore.
