Apparently we should do all the prepping and cleaning.

We host family dinner once a month. By host I mean we have the space to accommodate everyone and an open floor plan so it’s easier to see everyone.

Everyone always chips in with dishes and we all clean up afterwards together.

My BIL has a new girlfriend. Last night was her first time coming. She kept making snarky remarks. She never had to bring food when INVITED to someone else’s house. She never had to clean someone else’s house.

We used to rotate each month between the houses until we bought a new house. Now we have the best space.

It has been this way for years.

You should have shut her down by saying...Okay so dont come next time, you wont be missed and we would rather NOT hear your snarky borderline assholish remarks.

Did you explain the evolution and purpose of this gathering to her?

She had been asking to come for a few months   BIL told her he wanted to wait   She came with him...but he brought the buffalo chicken dip he makes and this amazing chocolate pie he also makes   So she didn’t have to actually cook anything   She also didn’t help clean up more than bringing her plate to the counter and throwing away her trash.  She was mad because BIL was cleaning   Last night was the first time I ever met her   


She also complained because after we cleaned from dinner we played a game before dessert

Oh-she sounds just lovely. Just a breath of fresh air.

Good luck with her.
