    I always bring something even when told not to. I think it's rude to arrive somewhere empty handed. Once I brought a bottle of wine to my inlaws only to realise (after the bottle was in Nanas hands) that it was half empty. Apparently it's still rude to arrive half empty handed Woops!

    It's like when you ask hubby if your **** looks fat in those pants. It's common knowledge that the answer will be skirting around the truth.

    My hubby is the only person I take shopping. He is very honest. It's women I have been shopping with that do the whole "oh you look great on that" thing and that annoys me. Why even ask? If I ask if I look fat I expect the truth and if I ask if I need to bring anything and I am told no, I will bring nothing. The same as I will say if someone looks horrible in something and I will be offended if they bring something when I have specifically that they don't.

    If you want flowers or cakes brought, why not say "sure bring flowers or a cake". Why all this dancing around and mind games? What is hard about asking for what you want instead of saying you don't want anything and getting cranky when they do exactly as you asked??

    Agreed. It's a play date after all, not a huge event and it sounds like the other parent has it sorted.
