I usually am in other forums and only just lurk here, but I had a question for all of you great people...
Do you ever do to dinner parties where the hostess "overhostesses"? What I mean by that is all the guests have sat down to dinner and the hostess is up running around "Do you need more _____?", "You don't have enough ______. Let me get you some", etc. By the time she has sat down for the dinner, everyone else is finished and would like to get up and mingle, but feel awkward in doing so and leaving her there by herself. I realize this is the case, because the guests always pipe up and say, "We're fine, just sit down and eat". Then some folks (the men normally - go figure :)) leave the table, but the women stay, but say things like, "When we're done here, remind me to show you ______."
The bottom line is that she just plain makes me nervous hovering like she does, and I would assume she makes everyone else that way as well. What would you do?
And for the record, this is my MIL, so not going over there anymore is not an option.
