Ha ha, no. Tell her to go suck on a turkey leg.
Ha ha, no. Tell her to go suck on a turkey leg.
How was the original invitation worded? I suspect some man fuckery in this, or at least it could be one explanation. I mean here, lack of clarity in what the host intended to provide and his poor communication of same could be a major culprit.
If I understand correctly, the party takes place at the home of your DH’s co-worker who is a man. Somehow the co-worker’s gf got drafted into being a hostess. ? Maybe?
But still this situation is very strange and very funny. OP,you have got to keep us informed!
Initially I would have suggested you go and just bring the side and bottle of wine, but after reading your response about other guests being flabbergasted at the amount of food/drink they are being asked to bring I think I’d skip it. It is bound to be one awkward, suck-y party.
This is crazy! Why put on a party if you dont want to make anything for it?! Did she just want the attention of being the host without actually putting in the effort. INSANE. and to top it off, her response EERKS me – I hope no one shows and she ends up with butter and ice cubes.
After reading the comments, I totally want to go there with a live turkey lol
Update: DH’s teammate was venting to a couple of the guys that his girlfriend says people are being cliquey and not very nice to her when all she did was reply to people and make suggestions of what to bring to people who offererd to bring something, that she’s being treated like an ‘outsider’ (um, no, my reply would have been the same if someone I’d known longer did the same thing she did). Well they clued the guy in to the way his girlfirend’s been acting and he asked her about it- and she said she wanted to host a nice dinner but ‘didn’t want to spend hours chained to an oven, she wants time for herself so she can look her best- but us jealous bitches want her to spend hours cooking instead so we won’t have to feel insecure about ourselves’ ?!?!?
Teammate has now changed it to a BYOB backyard BBQ and he’s going to do the cooking himself and people can bring sides/ desserts & lawn chairs. (which is perfectly fine) but I’m wondering how long this relationship’s going to last.
I’m torn btw telling Darling Husband to go without me so I don’t have to deal with her drama- and wanting to go because (A) teammate is a nice enough guy & it’s at his house, he didn’t do anything wrong and (B) to see how this plays out
RobbieAndJuliahaha : OH MY GOSH, HER REASONING IS PRICELESS! Wants to host the event, but would rather look cute than actually do hosting duties. lololol My mind is blown over this.
I’m in America and a couple of my friends groups do “friendsgivings” – usually we have a local grocery store make the turkey so that none of us have to spend the day being “chained to an oven.” Girlfriend nees to be more resourceful…or at the very least, more tactful
Aaaaaah. So she wants to be a guest at her own dinner party. It sounds as if she got her wish. (And as if she won’t be around for long–not the woman you envision having decades worth of holidays with…) Can’t wait for the report.
Dude. Write back and tell her how ridiculous her requests are. What in the world? It’s her event and you’re somehow supposed to bring the entire meal?! I don’t understand. You might as well have it at your house then!
She sounds like a keeper 😂
RobbieAndJuliahaha : Thanks for the update. It sounds like this poor man has got himself into a terrible relationship! But he sounds like a good guy who totally gets it so I’d attend the party and just try to be nice. I highly doubt that this Girlfriend is going to last long and if she does she’ll probably end up realizing her misstep and changing her ways.
What a CRAZY woman. Yikes. If she doesn’t want to spend time chained to the oven she has lots of options (potluck, BBQ, catering) other than treating her guests like caterers. What a B.
Oh wow. I’m with you: torn between going (because she sounds nuts, and so it could be entertaining) and wanting to stay the hell out of it… What a lunatic.
What a selfish ass bitch.
Hahaha…this seems so unreal! You will still have fun with everyone else besides her, right? So please go. And then tell us every single play by play. and possibly still take a live turkey.
This is an amazing thread. I probably would’ve skipped the party, except you said she’s being this nasty to everyone else, too. So, maybe this is a situation where you can go bond with the other people there who have experienced her ridiculousness, and just laugh at her behavior? I’d fully expect a blow-up from her at some point during the day, which could be quite entertaining!
