I would straight up leave after your little orientation to hell.

With all those rules, what’s the point? Sounds like you’re not cut out to be a party host, no shame in admitting that.

annabeth929 :  Tbh, I would stay just to be a pest. Too many opportunities to pass up. “Please pass the f*** potatoes, love. My dinner plate and I fancy a jaunt to the second floor bathroom.”

ETA: On second thought, PLEASE send me an e-vite. With a little pre-gaming, I would have an absolute ball.

misstomorris :  I’ll go with you! Just let me grab a couple bottles of wine for us to share… Hey, did you hear that Trump is converting to Buddhism?

I remember this exact post from quite a while ago. It’s the sort of thing that makes an impression. If this is real I’m surprised you have any friends to invite.

All i have to say is….yikes & good luck w/ that.

Though if i were you i wouldn’t host a dinner party bc it might turn out to be nothing but a completely disaster…bc your fiance will probably send a bill invoice to everyone that even blurts out foul language, spills their wine, knocks the wine bottle over or doesn’t take their shoes off at the door! 😂

Wait, isn’t this the same person who had all the rules for the dinner party before? AND the early bedtime?

And… and is this the same person with the days-of-the-week laundry? Where she was upset that her Dh had put things in the laundry, but not in the correct basket because she did laundry EVERY night? 

I keep thinking it must be the same person. How many sleep-fanatic, OCD dinner party hosters can there possibly be? Plus, her Dh is a similar fanatic. Just too similar to be an accident.

I am having a hard time believing that this is for real. This party would suck . you are supposed to be entertaining adults… you can’t dictate topics of conversation, amount of wine consumption and then kick people out on a Friday night because you need a 10 hour sleep? Seriously? 

If this is for real, then you have some mental health issues. It is not normal to be this rigid.

Rule of thumb as a hostess to dinner get-together at home: be nice and let people do/say what they want as long as they’re not damaging your home physically.

If you want to get to bed by 10pm and dinner at 7pm, do it in a restaurant that is known to have time limit.

We regularly host potlucks for our group, and people bring whatever they want. I don’t drink but I can’t stop others from drinking. I don’t swear, but if my friend to call my cat a super duper cute m******f*****g b***h, as long as my cat doesn’t mind herself being addressed that way (nope, my cat has no idea someone was swearing at her but only thought she was given attention. Lol!).

You should chillax if you want to invite people over. Else, don’t.

Don’t host. 

As a guest, I’d much rather stay home.
