Don't you just want to shake some people?

March 14th, 2011 at 10:28 pm

DH and I were invited to a friends' going away party. She's really a friend of a friend as I don't know her well, but she's a lovely person. On her invitation, she wrote to bring a plate of food to share.

We took a plate of olives, artichoke hearts, cubed greek feta, some basil & cashew dip & a box of water crackers. (It was all I had in the fridge at the time, because we'd planned another outing for the next day and I didn't want to use up all the goodies for that day).

Another friend of a friend (who I've actually written about before, she's quite infuriating) contributed two packets of chocolate coated biscuits. She also bought along three kids. Wha...?

It just makes me annoyed on so many levels! You don't bring two packets of biscuits and FOUR people! Atleast this is pretty much all her kids ate, I guess that's something?

Which is another annoyance in itself, really. She then complains about how her two youngest don't sleep until 11pm-2am every night. Perhaps *gasp* you're feeding them a little too much sugar?

The youngest also threw several tantrums in the space of three hours. I know kids do this when they're young, of course, but all that sugar can't have helped either.

    Oh, the joys of other peoples' children ...

    Sometimes you just want to look at people and say, "This is SO wrong."

    We are a large family and we do socialize as a family when it comes to school events. However, my children all get along well amongst themselves and others. They are polite and they don't eat that much. Big Grin

    I have a very low tolerance for other peoples children. Congrats on not losing your temper at the child!

    Potluck hosts in our neck of the woods (US, Pacific NW) talk about it amongst ourselves who brings good stuff and who brings the token stuff. (Good stuff people get invited again, token stuff not so much) The going away piece means that direct potluck karma will not be visiting the slacker, which makes it even more annoying.
