Rude Dinner Guest
I have been hosting holiday luncheons and dinners for my husband's family for the past 10 years. My brother-in-law has started bringing his wife to the gathering for the past 2 years (1 year of dating and 1 year of being married). However she has never brought anything to my house and she has never once said thank you to me and my husband. She just simply shows up, eats, and leaves.
When I am hosting any luncheon or dinner, it is my gift to my husband's family. So I don't expect any gift in return. However, how rude can one person get by not saying thank you and showing any appreciation and graciousness? I know we are family now but I don't think I should put up with her any longer. How should I tell her about her obnoxious behavior without putting strain on the rest of the family?
