Is this Britain’s rudest guest? Woman reveals friend brought LUNCHBOX to her dinner party as she didn’t like the food

The woman prepared a Turkish feast but her pal pulled out her own snacks including a sarnie, crisps and even Dairylea Lunchables

A WOMAN has revealed how a friend brought a lunchbox to her dinner party as she didn't like the food.

The unnamed host revealed the shocking behaving in a Mumsnet thread, asking if she was the one being unreasonable for being upset.

She told how she'd organised a Turkish feast when the woman, named only as Jane, pulled out a lunchbox and started tucking into a sandwich, Dairylea Lunchables and a packet of crisps.

Her other guests all ate the prepared food and were surprised by Jane's behaviour, the woman said.

The shocked host explained: "Did a Turkish theme, had falafel as a starter, moussaka as a main and plenty of wine.

"Anyway I had already messaged on the group what I was planning as I know Turkish food isn't for everyone. No problem, everyone looking forward to it."

She continued: "Friends arrived, wine poured, sat down for starters. Jane looks over the food and then laughed and said, 'Oh I'm glad I brought this just in-case! And goes to her bag and pulls out a lunchbox with a panini-type sandwich, a Dairylea Lunchable and some crisps. Which she proceeds to eat while the rest of us have what I've served.

"I apologised and asked if she didn't like Turkish food or was allergic to something, and should I get her something else, but she said no she just didn't fancy Turkish."

But other people assured the woman she hadn't done anything wrong, and Jane was the one acting bizarrely.

One woman said: "Wow that is rude! If you are not willing to drop her from the friendship group for being rude enough to bring her own food to a catered party. You should definitely drop her as a friend for eating Lunchables. I honestly don’t think I could ever get past that."

Another added: "I think it sounds hilarious! She ate Dairylea rather than your nice Turkish food. No you've not done anything out of order. She's just very odd and somewhat lacking social skills.

"But if she's nice in other ways I don't see a reason to lose a friend over it.

"Maybe she can reciprocate next time and can host a sandwich and Dairylea dinner party."

But other people were more sympathetic with Jane with one women saying she might have an eating disorder.

Another added: "Don't take it personally, some people are like that. I have a very good friend who I would never cook for as she's funny with food and needs to make her own. I'm not going to fall out with her over her quirky ways."

We recently reported on a mum who thinks her colleague is faking her severe morning sickness to go on holiday…so should she report her?

And speaking of the correct time to do things, this is the most popular time of the week for Brits to have sex… and it may surprise you.
