Hello Sheila,

You feel hurt because your house guest has poor manners that you are taking personally.​ ​Since you are not the cause of her bad etiquette, there is no reason to feel disrespected, just talk with her. Tell her that when you have house guests you share with them and expect the same treatment. This is, after all, a family like set up where meal time is a shared experience. Be kind, do not act hurt, be sincere and let her know what you want.

Good luck,
Ms. Practical Etiquette​
