Here's a situation... would you ask your friend or anyone close to you to return something that you gifted them? Do you know somebody who would do something like this? If your answer was no, here's a story that will introduce you to a woman who asked her gifts to be returned when her friend was going through the worst pain you can ever imagine.

Screenshots of a Facebook post of a woman were shared on Reddit where she revealed that she had recently endured the loss of a child to stillbirth at 29 weeks. "I didn't want to put this out here, but I have no choice," the woman whose name has not been revealed penned on her Facebook page, according to Kidspot. She continued, "(NAME CROSSED OUT) bought me some beautiful gifts for Benjamin for when he was born. A soft fleece blanket, a cuddly elephant, booties, some clothes, and a singing toy. I didn't ask for these things, as I said they were gifts."

She then mentioned that her son, Benjamin who was born at 29 weeks couldn't survive. "A week later (NAME CROSSED OUT) messages me asking if Benjamin used or touched the things she bought because if not... she wanted them back!" In the screenshots shared on Reddit, the woman's friend sounds concerned initially but then her motive becomes clear.

"Hey, hun just wondering if u used the bits n bobs I got for the baby?" she wrote. "If not I can give them to Laura's little one. Hope your ok and resting up hun?" wrote the friend and then followed up by asking her to inform her before she goes shopping again because she wants to save money.
