I was wondering if this happens at your family gathering. When we have family get togethers for birthdays etc, we usually go to my MIL's house. She would usually cook dinner or have some kind of food out for everyone to eat. My SO's brother and his wife have in the past, excused themselves and went and got McDonald's to eat for themselves and the kids. Now I don't want to be prissy but I find this incredibly rude.

I wouldn't in a million years do something like this. Have you guys ever seen this or done it yourselves??

It's beside the point but it seems like an extra insult because their getting garbage like McDonald's. It's like saying your food is so crappy that I gotta get McDonald's.

No offense to people who like McDonald's.

No, it is not really rude. They just do not like her food. End of story.

I have passed on asparagus before at My Aunt's dinner and my belligerent Aunt kept harassing me in front of everyone to eat it or else....so I was like fine and I nibbled on it in disgust for a few hours...

Maybe they think her food is repulsive and nauseating.

I have never done this, but my ex`s brother in law used to go out to eat, knowing damn well that his MIL had a big dinner fixed for Thanksgiving.
She would be furious when she found out, because usually he would come in late. She always had these awesome dinners fixed anyway, and she was always proud of it. Yes. That is quite rude.

Your really don't think that it is rude? I'm mean even just a little rude?

If there is something they don't like fine, don't eat it, but to go out and bring back food from somewhere else and eat it right in front of my MIL.

That's not rude??

That is Thanksgiving. Huge difference. The OP was talking about a family get together and some of her guests find her food revolting....must we turn this into a Salem Witch Trial?

It doesn't matter if they don't like her food. It's simply bad manners. Sorry if you don't agree.

Of course it is not rude. You are being silly and petulant.
