It's a story of "I do"s and don't's: Police say a guest at a Long Island wedding tried to make off with the couple's gifts.
The 18-year-old was awaiting arraignment Sunday after being arrested on a grand larceny charge.
He was at Larry and Joanna Williamson's wedding Saturday at West Sayville Country Club in Sayville. Suffolk County police say the maître d' got suspicious when he spotted the teen in the coat room, carrying a box full of envelopes that had been given to the couple.
The maître d' alerted the bride. Police say the teen then ran to the men's room, stuffed the envelopes in his clothes and darted out of the club.
Police say other guests trailed and stopped him.
The couple got all the gifts back
He should just say he was going to give those wedding gift checks to the Obama campaign . . isn’t that what Obama asked for?
I now only give checks..no cash.
The teen justified it by saying “They didn’t get married. All the rest of us got married.”
Needless to say the “Obama Defense” didn’t work.
Wedding gifts are supposed to be sent to the home of the bride prior to the wedding. Etiquette serves a purpose.
Quick, 0bama latch on to this guy before some other democrat politician gets him!
Larry and Joanna, did you get the $100k I sent you?
Really, why do people impolitely burden the bride and groom by bringing the gifts to the wedding? According to the rules of etiquette, gifts should be sent to the bride’s home before the wedding. It gives her a chance to open the gifts, send out her thank you notes, and figure out what goes where.
Bringing the gifts to the wedding allows jerks like this to steal and it gives the couple something else to worry about.
I wonder if the teen got a a$$beating for the history books at the very least .
Er, my birthday is 5 months from now ;)
