We’re going over to a friends place for dinner tomorrow that we haven’t seen in over a year just due to life and crazy work schedule. So earlier in the week I said we need to go get something to bring, like dessert or wine. He suggested a pie, I said fine. But he’s like “why? We never brought anything before.” True, to my defense, the intention wasn’t to stay for dinner, it was to just get together for the afternoon to hang out and let the dogs play together. I got him a cookie cake yesterday, which he sliced up, and ate a quarter of it… and today in the car, he says, we’ll just bring the cookie cake. Im’ like the one you cut up and ATE part of already!?! NO!! He says why not!! Ugh… really?? Am I the only one with a husband this clueless…….. =(
Please vote! I like to screen shot poll results to him. =)

@pinkshoes: hehehehe that sounds like a clueless guy thing to say. A pie or wine sounds like a great thing to bring!

@pinkshoes: Well how would he feel about being served a half eaten dinner? Actually, don’t ask that. If I asked my FI something like that he’d probably say, “I love leftovers!” Just tell your man you need to bring something else, guys are clueless.

Hahaha. That’s actually pretty funny! But definitely get or make a new dessert, or a nice bottle of wine!

LOL. That’s cute in a guy kind of way. But no, you can’t bring half-eaten food to a dinner. I’m even hesitant to bring cupcakes/cookies that aren’t in the bakery box, still sealed with the sticker, but that’s probably overboard.

Can’t vote as the formatting on the screen is being wonky for me, but
NO YOU CAN’T TAKE A HALF EATEN ANYTHING!

@daybyday: haha, I can totally see that question backfiring and getting a response like that too!
@housebee: I feel the same way! If it’s coming from the store, the sticker should be sealed unless I took it out to put it in a nice presentable container or display.

I know this is frustrating for you, but that amused me greatly. Boys just don’t get it sometimes. 🙂 You are not crazy–you CANNOT take a half eaten thing to anyone!!! It would be better to take nothing at all.

Haha, that is hilarious. If it’s a super informal occasion with friends you see all the time, you could get away with it. But definitely not when you’re going over to dinner at friends’ you haven’t seen in a year.
Oh men, so clueless and cute.

you could cut it up and take individual slices, I’ve bought pieces of cake before to take to a dinner party

This is so funny! That is totally something DH would say and be serious and kind of grumpy about 🙂 It is like, “No, you just can’t!”

This so sounds like my DH, anything to save a few bucks! But no, you are not wrong.

@pinkshoes: Is this an actual “cake” or is it just one of those big giant cookie things? If it’s just a giant cookie, then call me crazy, but I think it would be ok to cut it up into ‘bars’ and then put them on a different plate and then take it like that! 🙂
If there was some sort of design on there then that would be a little trickier. Haha. Then leave that bad boy at home.
