Does anyone out there dislike bridal and baby showers as much as I do? It seems like every time I turn around someone in this company is getting married or having a baby and of course all the women are invited and expected to bring a gift. It wouldn't bother me as much if they would have it off the premises and invite the close friends of the person but they hold these things in a conference room at lunchtime. I hate to be a scrooge but I really don't like attending these functions. If I want to buy the person something when they get married or have their baby I will. However, as part of the HR department I almost feel obligated to attend--although I haven't attended any since I started working here 12 years ago.

Anyone else out there have this going on in their office? How do you feel about this subject?
