Do you EXPECT your dinner guests to do the dishes?

Not help you,they do them alone. Not load the dishwasher,do them by hand.
My friend told me her inlaws all brought their plates to the kitchen while she was in there and then told her where the dishsoap and towels were and then left her and her hubby to do the dishes!

  • No, that is so rude. But, it does sound just like my MIL. She expects people to bring a huge amount of the dinner and to do all of the clean up for her. I'm so glad not to be spending the holiday with her.

  • Um no. When I am at my grandmother inlaws house (we go just about every Sunday for family lunches) I sometimes offer to do dishes, but I have never been expected to.
    Maybe it's their way of showing you that you are 100% family???

  • I would never ask, or expect my guest to to do anything.

  • No way, if I host a dinner I want my guest to relax. I'll do them when my guest leave. How rude!

  • No, not at all. Hell I don't expect them to even help but glad when they do :)

    Answer by timbrikaylamom at 7:54 PM on Apr. 24, 2011

  • Yes......ok no. But I wouldn't turn down an offer to help. Help not do them. I wouldn't feel right visiting with my other guest while one is in my kitchen slaving away.
