Hostesses responsibilities to guests at dinner!

I seem to be the only one who thinks it is impolite for a hostess and/or host to get up from the dinner table before coffee or dessert is served and do the dishes. Am I mistaken, or should they wait until the guests have left to attend to this?

Ms P.E. agrees with you! It is always impolite to cause your guests discomfort. Washing up while still entertaining is certainly a disruption in the flow of the evening's camaraderie and a definite signal to guests that the visit has ended. Thank you for your interesting question.
