Sorry I haven't checked back lately been a busy week. For those of you who say I don't care for my cousin I will be perfectly honest that is a bit of an understatement. We never have gotten along but I felt obligated to go.
I understand some of you might not find it rude, but I do. I go to a place that I have never been before the person at the door is not someone I know or who knows us. Neither the MTB or the hostess greeted us or said "XXXX so nice of you to come" or vertually anything else. And we were pointed told by the hostess if we were cold we should move. Which would be fine if we had choose to sit where a window was already opened, but I don't feel its acceptable when she opened the window in the living room so that the people in the kitchen could be comfortable .
I find it rude that when asked for ice water I was told that there was tap when later they were using ice from the dispenser (I didn't pry when I asked for ice and was told tap, I did not ask again for ice. After all who knows maybe the ice-maker in the fridge is broken or not connected)
One last note I don't think it was fair that there was not enough room for everyone to be in one place, but then to start playing games in one room without telling anyone else that there were games being played in the kitchen.
I would also like to say that I would never be rude to my cousin or criticize her function around her friends. I was polite and civil throughout the evening even through the highlight was a rousing game of balloon catch I played with a 3 year old. However I am entitled to my opinions and I feel that my attendance was not appreciated and that overall there was a lack of consideration from the MTB and hostess over how the guest (at least myself and my family) were treated.
