I have a question. A friend's son graduate from college about a month ago and I received an "announcement" in the mail a day or two ago. I opened the letter and read what it had to say. I said to myself, "Oh, that's nice. Thank you for telling me." But after a bit, I thought, "Wait a second. This guy wants money!" I mean, why else would he send me this announcement? I didn't attend the graduation, nor to I really care deep down that he graduated. Everyone graduates. Heck, I graduated with a few different college degrees and no one ever gave me any gifts. Especially not any money. So my question is, should I send my friend's son a monetary gift just to keep things good between us or should I go with my gut instinct that says I should just throw the announcement in the trash. I'm leaning toward the trash option.
