Olgarie : The entitled toddler is mid-thirties
Drizzle : “So get your ugly jealous ass over to that BBQ and report back to us on this peach” This literally made me LOL
Curlycupcake : Yeah, if it was someone with no post count I’d prob wonder if it was real too- cause when I got her initial email I was thinking “wtf? who does this? and then her reason for over-delegating…wow.
cherrymyst : I agree with the logic of this- why should it always fall to the women- but in this particular case, that’s not how it played out. The teammate who is now BBQing has hosted get togethers before and provided the BBQ etc, it was his Girlfriend who wanted to do something ‘a little nicer’ and wanted a Thanksgiving-themed sit down dinner (but apparently her ‘vision’ of this didn’t include her cooking any of it, only being the immaculately groomed hostess. I replied to the email because Darling Husband is rarely on social media, but he does his share of cooking, including for hosting and potluck. So while I agree with the outdated sexism of the women being responsible for everything, this is a different situation of a pushy women wanting others to do all the work for her ‘vision’ and then acting bitchy and playing the jealousy card when others won’t go along with it.

skunktastic : Yes, that’s exactly what happened as far as I can tell.
cherrymyst : Possibly because they’ve only been dating 3-4 months, possibly because he has a house and she has a condo (space and parking likely limited).
weddingmaven : Agreed, this is how I see it too. Rude selfish behaviour from someone who bit off more than she’s willing to chew.
lol to those who say I should go looking ‘fly as fuck’ 🙂 Also tempted to show up in an apron looking frazzled as hell with the biggest hugest turkey imaginable since apparently it’s not possible to cook for an event beforehand without sacrificing your appearance 🙂
I do agree though that teammate threw his gf under the bus by telling others what she said. Whether he did this deliberately or cluelessly I’m not sure.

Ooooooh maaaaaaah word! This woman is just PRECIOUS! She’s being marginalized by you and your friends with your jealous ways when she’s trying to fit in, bless her heart.
I just can’t even. Or odd with this one.
i guess it would be equally catty to talk to the other wives and girlfriends and decide that you’re gonna let her SHIIIIIINE and have all y’all show up in the most casual and normal outfits ever while she goes all out?

cherrymyst : For example – when men invite guests, most often it is the women who are expected to clean, cook and prepare.
Well then women in 2016 can certainly use their big words and say NO. Which this lady didn’t. So if you claim you’d like to HOST, then you host and not pass 80% of the work out to your guests.
