    Wow, that is the sort of thing I would expect from my teenage brother, except he has the manners to bring somthing to share or call and see if we need anything. And again he is a Teenage Boy!

    Nope...their children are adults now. I could understand if they had little ones they needed to feed.

    I wasn't 'suggesting' anything - most people I know call if they are on their way over and happen to stop for take-away...I was thinking maybe the couple weren't aware that having a new born in the house makes tea time a bit tricky - and were unaware of how much an offer of bringing some food would have been appreciated.

    The majority of childless people I know have been completely considerate and thoughtful.

    If any of my family members did this I'd be telling them RUDE RUDE RUDE! DH and I sometimes go to my parents and bring food with us because we were starving on the way there and there is no way I could turn up without food for everybody else. My ex BFF did this to me once. She called me to tell me she was dropping by with her kids for lunch. She rocked up 5 minutes later with McDonalds. I was STARVING! She sat at the table and asked me to get napkins, glasses for the kids etc etc and then proceeded to take the food out of the bags. There was food for her two children and for herself and then .. nothing more! She started eating and I honestly couldn't believe what I was seeing! She looked at me and said, "What? Did you want some?"

    Now let me finish by saying that every single time I dropped by her house I have ALWAYS taken food with me (be it a cake, sweets, coffee etc) and always a treat for her two kids. Was it really that hard to return the favour just this once?!?!
