“My husband and I notice a trend among some of our friends that we think is strange, but maybe we’re the crazy ones.
We have been invited to parties at people’s homes, and invitations will say, “Bring a dish to pass.” We bring a dish, have fun and keep our opinions to ourselves, but we both think it’s bizarre to have a party and expect the guests to bring the food (finances are not an issue).
When a group is planning a cookout, having everyone bring food seems normal. But planning a party in your home and not providing the food — is this a new thing? — BYOF”
It’s called a potluck and they’ve been around for centuries. WTF, why is this weird to you?
