Was The Hostess Rude?
 
Last Sept we were part of a dinner at a friend's house. When the dishes were cleared the hostess asked if folks wanted dessert-everyone said yes. She brought out apple pie and ice cream and serving dishes to the table. Instead of serving she got engaged in a conversation with several guests and talked and talked and..finally her daughter grabbed the desserts and started to serve them because the ice cream was melting.

Last night, similar deal-she brought the dessert (cheesecake) to the table, started talking with people generally and after 15 minutes started to serve the dessert.

I thought both times it was rude to ask guests if they wanted a food, produce it near them but not serve them My wife said no-the hostess has two duties, to serve the dinner and to socialize with the guests.

What are the thoughts of folks here? What do you do when hosting??

If she's not going to serve the food, then she should say something like, "here are plates and silverware, come serve yourself. Make yourself at home." Or something like it.

I think if this is the kind of thing that is a problem in your life, you are a very blessed man and need to realize that.

Rabbi 04-21-2013 17:37

....and did you actually say "last sept..."

This has been stuck in your craw for 7 months? THIS?

Z71bill 04-21-2013 17:44

Was she dressed age appropriate?

Both times you should have offered to help. What's wrong with you?

My friends kept saying and doing the same things over and over again, so I finally dumped them.

If you knew what I know, you would NEVER eat at a QSR. Trust me.

No two hosts/hostesses are alike and I don't take it personally when one doesn't impress me. My wife used to get a little snotty on the drive home about some until I pointed out that it makes her dinner parties look all the better.

Travelin' Jack 04-21-2013 17:58

Well, I never!

You use dishes?

wrenrj1 04-21-2013 18:00

I assume you didn't have to pay for the meal in the first place, but you didn't say in your IP. Criticizing the service is pretty petty. I'm with Rabbi on this one. How about having the dinner at your house next time to show them how it's done.

Did you leave a tip?

Beat me to it.

Angry Fist 04-21-2013 18:04

I would have left them an upper-decker.

Stevekozak 04-21-2013 18:06

I am betting that you are not what we would term a "slender fellow". :)

jame 04-21-2013 18:07

I'd go pretty light with the tip. That'll show her.

pizza_pablo 04-21-2013 18:08

Why did you guys think it was better to watch the ice cream melt, instead of serving it yourselves?
Folks I hang out with usually help the "hostess" anyways.

Glock!9 04-21-2013 18:08

Is this really a thread?

Not necessarily rude, but a definite lack of knowledge concerning manners.

RGbiker 04-21-2013 18:19

So, the Hostess is a woman with a short attention span.....:whistling:

Nothing new....:supergrin:
