I'm sure they didn't do it on purpose.... Maybe they used a credit card to pay for it and had an issue? Or it was a mistake from target's end?
They would have to be really horrible people to do something like that intentionally..... And even if they are this kind of people, you are not, so be the bigger person, besides it's not their child's fault either.....he deserves a little something for his birthday, just like your daughter does!
If you call them out on it and it was really an accident you will feel like a big jerk!
I wouldn't call them out by saying, "hey, you gave my kid a bogus giftcard" I would say something like, "hey, I finally got to Target the other night, and the giftcard you gave us wouldn't go through, do you happen to still have the receipt?"
But yes, they are 100% the type of people to steal a gift card from Target and give it to a two year old.
I kind of want them to just know that I know, I think bringing it up, albeit nicely, might shame them a little. But then, I guess it would accomplish absolutely nothing, really. Probably not worth my energy, but thank you all for responding, I needed to talk this thing out.
