Left off the guest list
our best friends had a dinner party for seven couples on Friday night. My husband and I were intentionally left off the guest list because they felt that this group of people were a different set of friends from us. With that being said, half the people that attended the party were old friends of ours that we have known for over 20 years that they have just recently become friends with through a card club. My question is, they had this huge dinner party and now have a plethora of leftovers. We are now invited to come today to help them clean out the refrigerator and consume all the leftovers from their party. In my view this is in very bad taste and we should decline the invitation. My husband says we should swallow our pride, be gracious and except the invitation and go and eat the food. What is the proper way to handle this.
