We’ve had this lady staying with us for a while. She’s very nice, friendly and highly entertaining… overall, it has been good to have her. But we’ve been really put-off by this one experience we continue to have.
So I’ve been cooking a lot for us — obviously — and I think the food’s been pretty good. I mean, we eat it! So we sit down to dinner and she’s all happy and chatty. We talk about our days — typical dinner table conversation. I prepare everyone’s plates and bring them to the table. She takes one look and refuses like she’s the freaking Queen or something! I don’t know if she doesn’t like my plating or if the food just doesn’t look appetizing to her, but she refuses. When I say “refuses” I don’t mean she says “no thank you,” I mean she refuses. ”No way I’m eating that! Are you kidding me?! Get it out of my FACE!” If it is already in front of her, she has been known to throw it to the dog. WTF?! Who does that?! It is so crazy. So I tried making other things, even buying pre-made things that look nicer but it didn’t work. She still was incredibly rude, yelling about how she wasn’t eating that swill. That’s what she called it — swill! I’ve never had an experience like this with a dinner guest.
At first I didn’t let it bother me. Don’t get me wrong, I was shocked at her behavior! But she never got far enough to even taste my cooking so I didn’t take it too personally. Now, though, I’m starting to get offended! I went to all this trouble to cook and she calls it swill and throws it to the dog? I don’t think so, lady! Have some freaking manners!
But what am I going to do? I mean, she is my baby.
