What else was she supposed to do with all the food left on her plate? If she didn't take it home, it would have been thrown away. I'm not putting food that someone else has been eating back into the pot with the other leftovers. That sounds gross.

The issue is not the leftover food on her plate, it is, as far as I can see, that the guest them proceeded to empty the leftovers in the pot & took that too. That is very rude. I always make extra of some foods, to eat as leftovers. I would be mad if someone helped themselves to that & took it home in a doggie bag.

No, no. Here's a hard roll, 2 slices of ham, 2 slices of turkey, 2 slices of Swiss. Open a bag of chips and Bob's your uncle! I'm just snarky enough to put a Ziploc bag next to her place, "...just in case you can't finish your sandwich, dear."

I can't believe the part I just read where she polished off a slice of apple pie and ice cream!

I would have been happy to give her a container for the food on her plate that she couldn't finish. I don't consider that rude. But at the restaurant, when you ask for a doggie bag, you can't go in the kitchen and empty the pans. Why would you do such a thing at a private home?

Because the wife told her to. The OP is just mad that his wife gave away food that he wanted as leftovers to a person he doesn't like. That doesn't make the wife's friend rude.

She didn't put more then she could eat on her plate, you did.

She didn't bring her own containers or jusy help herself, your wife gave the containers to her to fill up with leftovers.

To me it sounds like a problem with poor communication, not a rude guest. You assumed your guest was as hungry as you were, and didn't ask how much she would like. And it seems your wife didn't know that you wanted to save the leftovers for yourself.


I agree.

And the poor communication continues with the OP. How many follow-up posts do we have to read before getting a very different picture from what was originally posted?

I made the original topic merely to get peoples take on guests taking home the meal provided in a doggie bag, i have read the responses and as such further comments are redundant. Thanks..

Wow. No, you are right. This is ridiculous. I would not invite her for dinner again.

Not in my opinion. Extremely rude.
