DEAR MISS MANNERS: My daughter is very hurt that no one has sent her recent graduate anything yet. It has been one week, and she did not send out announcements.
Is it proper to put on Facebook how disappointed she is and that her son deserves better? What is the proper timeline for such things?
GENTLE READER: It depends on what the objective would be in doing this.
If you are predicting a resulting outpouring of love and material offerings from those to whom this scolding is directed, Miss Manners rather doubts that it will be successful. However, if the idea is to make your daughter appear greedy and her son to appear pathetic, the chances are good.
