Our friend Mindy loves to host Thanksgiving dinner. Like most Turkey Day hostesses, Mindy asks each of her guests to bring a dish…
But Mindy actually takes it a step further. When she assigns dishes, she tends to get very specific about quality and price point! For example, requests in this year’s email included: “Bring 2 bottles of red wine – GOOD wine please – NO Two Buck Chuck!” and “Green Bean Casserole – only organic ingredients please!”
While everyone appreciates Mindy’s holiday invitation, some of the guests are getting a little peeved about how specific the hostess is getting with her “suggestions”. In general, Mindy’s directives suggest bringing something high quality and expensive, but should this be the guests’ choice or the host’s demand? Should her disgruntled guests say something or should they just be thankful for the invite and shell out the big bucks for organic beans?
