The Question Club
what do you think about being invited to a dinner at a friend's, and being asked to chip in the money for food?|
if you dont mind, how much would you be willing to chip in / pay? what factors would it depend on?
if you do mind, why?
tbh i understand why people would do it although i personally am not used to it. in my culture guests are not expected to pay, and we have a whole month (during eid) where families hold open houses and welcome anybody into their home for free food and entertainment.
also, have you ever been in a situation where a friend invited you to join them for coffee or whatever, with close friends you also know, but you subtly finding out that you werent meant to be invited there? what would you do?
i was invited to coffee by a friend, with mutual friends i've known since we were all in primary school. i got there early, with one of the mutual friends, who (on the phone) told the guy who planned the outing that i was there waiting with him. from what i heard, the guy who planned it didnt actually want me there :/ they didnt make it obvious but it was so weird. i felt pretty foolish :/
