I probably would have been so taken aback and wouldn’t have been able to think of a good come back. That is awfully rude though.

That is so rude! I probably would have just walked the bags of chips back to my car…then got in and drove off.

Super rude.  He posted that he was bringing them, so she should have been gracious.  Plus it’s chips, everyone eats them..it’s not like he brought something weird and obscure. 

Wow, super rude.

Wow.  Very rude.  Like @yellowshoe, if I wasn’t close friends with these people, I wouldn’t have stayed for the party.

To play devil’s advocate.. Depending on the type of potluck, I think it’s pretty rude that he thought that chips would suffice as a potluck item. I hate when I spend a lot of time and money on a dish that I hope people will enjoy, and there’s the jerk who saunters in with a bag of Lays potato chips who then eats everything that everyone else brought. I could see that she’d be a annoyed by his lack of effort.

Well, she’s obviously a bitch, isn’t she? Who makes a big deal over chips? They’re chips!

@blueskye:  I can understand that. It definetly depends on the type of party. i think chips are fine for a BBQ type of party.

We recently hosted friends for dinner at our house. Fiance and I spent about $100 on the appetizers, drinks, meal, and dessert and about 4 hours prepping. One of our guests asked if she could bring salad, so we said sure. She showed up with a bag of lettuce. Not in a bowl, no dressing..just lettuce. I was like wtf? I wasn’t mad though, we thought it was funny/weird.

@blueskye:  if the chips were not acceptable she should have said that when she received their e-mail

@UpstateCait:  Dude, you can never have too many chips.  Even if you have plenty, you suck it up and put them out.  What a bitch.
