Dear Miss Practical Manners,
I have encountered this problem with more than one friend over the years, and find it to be increasingly annoying. So often, a friend will extend an invitation to go out for lunch, and then after I agree to go, they say, "Oh, good! Where shall we go?"
Am I wrong, or shouldn't they, being the ones that have extended the invitation, have a place all ready in mind? Not only that, but when I respond with an idea, it is often met with disapproval! How should this be handled?
