I want to get your perspectives on this. A "friend" and I had a bit of a blowout not long ago, it's too long of a story to get into but the backstory is that when I was pregnant a year ago (was 16 weeks when I had the devastating m/c), she had given me a bunch of baby clothes she had. Some stuff was stuff that was given to her (a lot of it actually) and some she never even used. There were also a few maternity clothes. Well, I guess I've had the stuff for a year or so, but seriously have not had the strength to go through it or decide what to do with it.
So a month or so ago (it was amazing timing, one day off from my m/c the year before!) we had this blowout. After she hung up, very ANGRY - she called me back about 20 minutes later and said "you know all those baby clothes you have? Well, I want them back! You can bring them to me, and I also want the maternity clothes" I was flabbergasted! We had never talked about me ever "returning" the clothes, and quite frankly, since she is not planning on having any more kids, I just assumed that she would not want them back and I would *hopefully* have use for them in the future.
What IS proper etiquette for dealing with stuff given to you before a m/c?? I have no idea what the rules are. Or IF there are any... but that request from a "good friend" hurt me down to my core because it came off as being something she purely used to cause me pain.
