Hello, this is my first e-hell post.
I have been wondering about this situation for awhile:
Friend invited us (fiance and I) to her place for brunch prior to a group of us going to a music festival, we accepted and I did not offer to bring anything.
The day before the brunch, I got a text message asking to bring 2 dozen eggs.... At the time I felt this was a bit excessive, but I didn't know who/how many was going to the brunch.
Turns out there were about 12 people at the brunch, and it consisted of bacon, toast, eggs (which I supplied), mushrooms/tomato (of which there was not enough to go around), and condiments. No drinks were offered, but most of us brought alcoholic beverages, sparkling wine etc. (I also had a bottle of water in my bag which I drank).
I saw another friend brought a couple of loaves of bread, but that was it.
I felt a bit put out that we'd been asked to bring eggs for the whole group.
Just for background information, we are not any closer with this friend than the others that attended.
In general, I really don't mind bringing along things when my friends ask, but in this situation I felt a bit used (and I'm vegetarian, so no bacon for me).
Was this bad etiquette on my friends behalf? Should I have said something? Or am I overreacting?
