    Ah, yes! Especially if they have a young bub!
    I think it's rude to take food to someone elses house and eat it in front of them (unless it's dietary) without checking ahead to see if they want anything. If they say no that's fine but you at least ask.
    But to do it to people with a young baby in the house... Very rude.

    Obvious lack of manners.

    I presume they don't have children?

    I didn't think that was rude. I thought that was their way of showing you that they didn't expect to be invited to dinner.

    I'm quite surprised at all the PPs agreeing it is rude. I would never have imagined so.

    ========

    Conversely if you had young children that may complain that they wanted some, then I would've rated it as thoughtless and insensitive, but when the only people in the house are adults and a baby that is too young for take-away food, then no, I really don't see the problem.

    Another vote for rude here! Does your DP really think that's ok?

    Yes, rude rude rude! Either eat it before going in, get enough for everyone or get it after!!

    I mean if you had cooked dinner for just your family and ate in front of guests without offering them any, that would be considered rude. This is no different!!

    ooooh good topic. Yes very rude and very inconsiderate.

    We know someone who does this ALL the time. he is DP friend and for some reason thinks it is ok to turn up with a massive load of take away and eat it in front of us (and DD1 who is 7), or worse yet will buy himself and DP and DP only take away on the weekend when DD1 is home. He does not seem to think it is wrong at all and continues to do it cos "he has to eat you know and didnt know anyone else was gonna be here". for crying out loud its a weekend. how could he not think no one else will be home! So whenever he does this DP tries to keep him in the man shed so DD isnt as likely to see.

    I think it's very rude. FIL and his DP did that to us once when DD was a baby. They were visiting from interstate and staying with SIL, and he called to let me know they were coming over later and would get some Chinese on the way. I wasn't sure if he meant for all of us or not and didn't want to ask. They took a while so DH and I had a small dinner (so we could either eat with them or not). They turned up with dinner for the 2 of them and ate it at our house. I thought it was very odd. Especially with a new baby, aren't people meant to help you out with dinners then?!
