MissIndigo Posted August 20, 2008 Share Posted August 20, 2008 This past weekend, I hosted a small party for my boyfriend's birthday and he and I provided a snack/hors d'oeuvres spread of food. We made it clear that it wouldn't be substantial enough for a real dinner, and since it was casual anyway, I didn't stress too much about what to serve. Just for the record, we had fruit salad, black bean salad w/rice, crackers and brie, and a fruit cheesecake. We had limited time and did what we could to get even this together. We have one friend who will often ask for food or drink that isn't made available, which strikes me as odd and frankly, a little rude. This happens not just at my gatherings, but others as well. This isn't to accommodate a special dietary need or anything, it's just because I think he feels it should be offered. At parties, I've always been appreciative and accepting of what my hosts have had to offer and if it isn't out on the table, for whatever reason we just don't get to have it. Our guest didn't make any issue of it all really, but it just makes me feel funny that at most gatherings this person finds something to ask for--"do you have this? do you have that?"--when the other guests just take the offerings in stride unless they have a food allergy or don't feel well (like need tea for a sore throat, etc.). It just gets annoying after a while. Thoughts?? Link to comment
