On Wednesdays, I throw out a question that asks, "What Would You Do If ...?" and I would love to hear - what you would do.
I will not give my answer to the What Would You Do If - Wednesday question until late in the day - after everyone has had the opportunity to offer their ideas first.
What would you do if ...
You were invited to a friend's house for dinner and ...
The food they served was unedible or ... something you absolutely hated?
Would you still eat the food?
Would you refuse to eat the food?
What would you do?
I'm anxious to hear your answer - to see if you would do what I would do or are ... On The Flipside.
Give me your most honest answer and please go over to the sidebar and participate in the poll on this subject.
This is what I would do:
I have seldom been in this situation - but, it has happened.
I've never been offered dog food - and if I was - I would not eat it. But ... there has been times when something was being served that I am not fond of - like spaghetti.
Most people love spaghetti. Not me! I don't like spaghetti! I can't even spell spaghetti without using spellcheck - I hate it that much.
But ... I ALWAYS eat the spaghetti - ALWAYS!
I would never tell my friend that I did not like what she has prepared and I would eat most anything to keep from hurting my friend's feelings.
Usually, I just pick the food I am okay eating - like salad and bread and just say that I am not all that hungry or ask for a small portion of the food I do not like.
I have been in the situation where I have made a meal - had family/friends over and cooked a big meal - only to have a member at the table refuse to eat or pick at the food as if it was inedible.
This situation was awkward and hurtful and not something I would EVER do to a family member or friend.
That's just me.
I'll eat most anything to keep from hurting your feelings.
