How do you feel when you are not served food at a party? I find it so annoying but many people say that it is not a big deal to them and they know that food does not always go round in a party. Why should food not go round any way? Why invite people to your party just to starve them ? I always eat before attending a party but that does not mean I should not be offered food when other people around me are being offered. In fact, it upsets me to my stomach because I have more than enough food at home but for the effort of dressing up and setting out, I should be just as honoured with a meal to say the least. I hardly attend parties empty handed. I go with a gift or cash and I would usually also spray money on the dance floor. I write this boldly because I am by no means hungry but it is unfair to me to be seeing food pass by and smelling the aroma and all I can do is hope in vain... I attended a friend's father's funeral recently despite my friend being outside the country. I went to honour my friend in the company of our other friends. She said "Just ask of my sister and she would attend to you guys" The sister claimed there was no more food even though we arrived early. Others took it in good faith but I was pissed. A colleague recently got married out of town and we contributed money for fuel while one of us made a car available. I chose not to go for fear that I would leave my city and go far away from home and then be given "swallow" but the soup may never arrive or I get a plate of rice and no water nor juice to wash it down. I dare not even assume that there would be special treatment for colleagues as small chips or desserts because many times, it's the ones close to the celebrant that suffer for the lack of organization or low budget. I sent a gift anyway. As a result of past experiences, i only attend parties where i trust the host to behave properly or I am a host myself. For the records, I don't identify as a glutton despite the long piece on getring served or not. I just like due process.
