The reason I ask is: My SD (15) went to a birthday party this past weekend (friend from school- we don't know the parents that well). It was supposed to be from 2 PM till 8 PM, but she called me at about 6:30 asking if I could pick her up early because the girl's mom had kicked them all out. I figured they were getting too rowdy (teenagers LOL).
So I asked SD what happened when I picked her up, and she said the girl's mom kicked them out because some people didn't bring gifts! She didn't just kick out the kids that didn't bring gifts, she kicked everyone out & made them wait outside until their parents could get there (in 35 degree weather). The mom told the kids that since she paid for all the stuff for the party (cake & decorations, but nothing fancy), that they needed to bring gifts & she didn't want freeloaders in her house!!
Is it just me, or is that really petty & materialistic??

What!!! They didn't pay the cover? Some people.
Seriously, she probably has mental issues. I don't think healthy people behave that way. That poor girl is going to be so embarrassed at school.
