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?

Well, if you don't read etiquette books, you've no business pronouncing someone rude and I'll-bred simply because their customs are different from your own.

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.

What is "regular" to you? Vulgar to say someone is cheap? Bawhhhaaa... do you consider yourself cheap. Do you consider your dh cheap?

What year are these etiquette books you read? Are you really that much of stick in the mud type of person?

Not when they've either been request to NOT bring anything or are aware that Bord does not expect contributions.

Again, it is rude and if you are have been properly raised, you don't show up empty-handed.

Actually, no.  "many different" would be correct, but the use of the word "all" is not.

Yes, it is vulgar to call people "cheap," and if your definition of stick-in-the-mud includes folks who consult reference works from time to time, you can count me as one, Morty.

No it is not vulgar to call people cheap. Are you cheap? Is your dh? Seems like you might be if you find offense to this term.

You say you have manners, but people with manners do not call other people cheap just because their customs differ.
