And you thought sorting through someone’s wedding registry was bad.

When someone posted a lengthy email invite to a 1-year-old’s birthday party — that went into heavy detail about what gifts were and were not acceptable — to Reddit, it quickly went viral.

Razz32 posted the following letter to the site, which is chock-a-block full of entitled gems, including restricting gifts to just “2 items total per household,” and links to the four acceptable gifts they really, really want to receive.

And like the worst Bridezilla, don’t you dare stray off the list. They ask that if you are so compelled to do so, you include a receipt so they can return your potentially crappy gift.

Oh, and also no books. The baby “hates when we try reading to him.”

Redditors went crazy for it, comparing the threat of the more “formal invite” to come to a court summons: “Cake won’t be served, but you have been” and “$20 bucks to see the baby!”

Whatever happened to just showing up with some cupcakes and balloons? Maybe a nice action figure?
