You offered her a good set of cookware and she turned it down. And now she wants RR knives to match. What is it that you are forced to do?

Niecy wants me to buy the RR knives and utensils. I have some brand new Oxo Good Grips utensils in a box in the garage. But they are black.

I certainly hope you're not planning on buying her anything! You offered what you offered, if she wants something different that up to her to buy!

I totally agree, the offer was made and she returned the gift. You are done!

If you feel compelled to buy her something, get her a rr paring knife or dish towel.

True! Niecy is already too spoiled, and for her own good I need to learn to say NO.

I will not buy her anything else.

Exactly.

Don't feel obligated to do anything. Period.

IF she is important in your life, don't let her lack of knowledge throw you!
Don't expect a young cook to understand...it's just too much to ask.
Teach gently.......always. Be the lesson.

Yeah, but don't nurture it, either.

I have to agree with the majority here, LL. You gave a gift from your heart and she turned it down. It isn't so much not knowing good cookware as not knowing good manners.

I would tell her that if she doesn't like the gift she can return it, but it is up to YOU whether you buy a replacement gift or not. It is not for her to make demands.

Then, whether you do or don't give her something she at least has been taught (will she listen is up to her).
