I'm hoping you guys can help settle a debate that DP and I are currently having
Here is the scenario...
You've just had a baby and it's your first week at home. Your BIL and SIL want to visit after they finish work, so this would be around 5:30pm.
They arrive at 5:30pm with take away for themselves, and proceed to eat it in front of you.
Is this rude?
In general, do you think it's rude to arrive at someone's house (family or otherwise) with take away for yourself without phoning ahead and asking if anyone else would like some?

Yes I think it is. If DP an I go to people's house and get take away if we don't wanna buy anyone any we eat it in the car before we get there. Or we offer to buy everyone some, and they end up giving money for it.

So rude! Who does that? Not only would I never bring takeaway to someone else's house for myself I would always ring first to see if they needed or wanted anything ESPECIALLY if they just had a baby!

Yes I think thats very rude. How hard would it be to just ask if you wanted some too.

Rude even without the newborn baby. Add the baby in the mix, and it is not only rude, but crazy inconsiderate -- surely they'd think that the new parents wouldn't have time to cook, so it would be nice if they bought them dinner....!
