Today's entry on eHell about CapriSun being reserved for the kids reminded me of what happened a few years ago. We went to a party hosted by friends of ours. They provided a lot of food, and set them out buffet style. There were steak, chicken, different types of salads, corn, etc. On the same table, but more to the side, they set out some more kid-friendly food such as hot dogs, chicken fingers, and macaroni and cheese. Their thinking was that by putting them to one side, it would make it easier for the parents and for the kids themselves to access, but they certainly weren't looking to limit the kids to just that food. In fact there were kids there who ate the steak, chicken, salads, corn, etc. There were certainly more of the "adult-type" food than the kids' food.
One of the guests went and took a lot of food from the kids' side at the beginning of the meal for himself. The hosts were taken aback at this, and they had to scramble to cook some more hot dogs. They didn't have any more chicken fingers or macaroni or cheese. Was he rude for doing this? Or was it OK since it wasn't specified that it was just for the kids, and the kids were certainly eating from the "adult" side too?
I also found out later that this guest was not invited. Another guest brought him along without informing the hosts. During the party he also didn't talk to anyone else other than the person who brought him. So perhaps this also affected the hosts' perception of him.
