IME, most people give roughly what their plate costs if they can afford to. If not well they give what they can. These days, we usually give $50-$100 depending on how close we are with the couple at the wedding and something off the registry for the shower. We used to struggle more with money and gave more like $20. We don't go to wedding very often. Maybe once a year or less.
For me, offended isn't the right word. I would find it very odd and kinda tacky and it would feel like the couple to be is creating work and added stress for their guests.
Usually only on special occasions like birthdays or valentine's day. Or if we go somewhere like a fondue place. Restaurant portions are so large that we usually are too full for dessert.

DD's is big enough to share if we got her a twin bed. Right now she has a queen bed. It was our old master bed before we got a king, then it was our guest bed now it's her...
A friend of mine from China keeps a basketful of disposable slippers (the kind you get at a nail salon) by the door.
People who keep me waiting whether by the phone or at a location and people who interrupt me when I'm talking.
I don't usually wear shoes in the house and let guests do whatever makes them comfortable. I'm a pretty laid back person and it's just not in me to enforce a rule like that. My floors are still clean regardless. We have no carpet downstairs- just wood and tile. It doesn't take a lot of time to sweep the floors regularly. I've seen some cute signs on etsy for shoes off policies if you are really a stickler for the no shoes thing. Honestly though, if the thing with the...
