I host/entertain a lot and it is always clear to me which people don’t think about anything from the point of view of a host. RSVPing and no-showing or vice versa. Inviting 700 friends without asking the host (if it is not a clear open invite). If it’s a dinner thing, showing up an hour early or four hours late. Cooking your potluck food at the host’s house without discussing it first. Bringing your child to a nighttime party without verifying it is kid friendly (particularly if the host and almost everyone going doesn’t have children!). I could go on.
My main complaint today: couples who think they only need to bring one bottle of wine, one sixpack of beer, whatever. You are still two people! You still drink the amount that two people drinks!
This rant brought to you by memories of annual “Friendsgiving” parties.
