Whoa. It's definitely not you- that is REALLY bad etiquette. And weird. I was reading along thinking maybe it was someone who had issues with other people preparing/touching their food, or shared food, or.... ?? But then they let their kid eat the ice cream, so that doesn't make any sense. And does she not realize that the same (milk)fat that makes the pizza greasy is also in the ice cream? Maybe it was just the organic part of it. But still...
Not eating at someone's party is fine- weird, but not rude. Asking for different food from your cabinets starts to get a little annoying to me. But then straight out asking you where a grocery store was so that she could get some food- THAT is plain rude. Was she really trying to get the point across that your food was horrible, or what?
SAHM to 6.5yo DS and 4yo DD. PCOS with two early m/cs. Married 8 yrs. Certified birth doula, writer, editor.
Some stuff I like:
Homeschooling mama to 6 year old DD.
That was seriously rude.
I brought some snacks to a meeting the other day - I was on the run, didn't have time to get anything from a nicer store, but bought seed and dried fruit mix....and some chocolate covered almonds (just cuz I thought it would be nice).
A woman I offered them to said "Oh, I don't eat drugstore chocolate." (It was a grocery store, not a drug store, but I felt...ugh...so just kinda..left)
I get how you felt. Rude, rude, rude and with no graciousness.
