Do you find this tacky?

We've been invited to a cookout for DH's grandfather's birthday. Thirty minutes before it's supposed to start MIL texts DH saying we need to bring our own food. I made a comment about how that was so short notice and he actually said "no, we bring our own food to cook. They aren't providing anything". Who does that just before it's supposed to start? Also we live 40 minutes away.

Just stop at a fast food place and eat before you get there.

I have never heard of anything like this, very inconsiderate and really tacky.

Definitely a little crazy, but if that's what they always do I would just run through the drive through somewhere and get something to eat.

Weird.

So y'all were already on the road? I guess stop and get something.

But wouldn't you already know they are like this?

My mil started doin' that to us or we just weren't invited. She is a crazy, hateful woman though.

If it was done to be mean, I wouldn't go. If not, I'd eat beforehand.
