From time to time I write about Etiquette on this blog. For some reason manners are missing in my world and the more I read and hear, the more I think they are just missing. Period.
So here is my tip of the day. If you couldn’t bother showing up at a dinner party, for whatever reason, even worse if you weren’t invited, you are not entitled to a take-home plate UNLESS the host/hostess offers, please notice the word OFFERS, to send you one. It’s not okay, to send a loved one to ask for a to-go plate for you. That’s what drive-thru is for. It’s not okay to announce, “My sister couldn’t make it, but she said to bring her a plate.” Hello! Entitled generation much?
