Starting off Sunday fluff

We've gone to church, watching Meet The Press, took ground beef out of my freezer for meatballs, jotting notes down for the week then planning for the week ahead, clip coupons, and planning to watch the Cleveland Browns/Bengals game later, Ultimate rivals!  Lol! 

How is your Sunday going?

It is not rude to do as the host has requested. In fact, it's rude to ignore the host's wishes.

Morty, the more you talk, the more limited and judgemental you sound. Read an etiquette book already. I already said it is not necessary to show up empty-handed. Flowers, wine, hostess gifts are fine. Unless it is a potluck or you are a co-host, you do not bring food in any circle of friends I have had since grad school.

That's just simply not true of 1) all cultures 2) everyone in the American culture even.  I'll agree that it is often expected, but not always.

Again, I said IME and yes, I know people of ALL cultures.

Again, I was raised to have manners. You bring something for the host. If they don't use it that night, then that is their choice but they are taking their time, their energy, their money out for YOU.

I do not think the word ALL means what you think it means.

Sounds like you don't host many dinner parties and the ones you do are with cheap people. lol

I agree with this.  But what somebody decides to bring really isn't up to you to find offensive or not, And that's the point to me.  Not everybody reads etiquette books like you do bord.

We host fairly regularly, and in turn, we are hosted fairly regularly. Why you would make such a vulgar comment about people you don't know is truly beyond me.

Exactly and NO ONE said you HAD to put it out THAT night and why not? Are people THAT closed minded and ridged that a dish could just possibly NOT be added to their dinner. Bawhhhaaa...
