Most Western New Yorkers Think Dave Was Wrong For Doing This
It looks like what I did over the weekend has been deemed rude, cheap, tacky, and worse.
If you didn't hear my story here is what happened.
The other day we went to my nephew's graduation party and the spread was awesome. There was BBQ chicken, potatoes, mac and cheese, and so many more delicious foods.
So this is where my wife thinks I went off the rails. As we were leaving, I noticed that my in-laws had a lot of food still on the table. Mind you, we left the party early so there were still guests coming to hang out after us.
But, the food was so good, I figured that I would ask my brother-in-law for a to-go bag, aka "A Doggie Bag". I figured the food was so good that it would be even better as leftovers the next day.
My wife thought what I did was tacky and that I was being a cheapskate, trying to take my brother-in-law's food so I wouldn't have to buy lunch the next day.
I thought there was no harm in asking and if they were worried about not having enough food, my brother-in-law would have said no to my request.
According to this poll, 65% of people thought that asking for food to go was rude and that I was being a cheapskate while 35% of people who took the poll didn't think I did anything wrong.
I also posted my story on social media and man oh man did I get lots of responses. For the most part, people thought what I did was being cheap and tacky. Some people said my wife was 100% correct to call me out while some other people said that since it was a family party there shouldn't be an issue.
A couple of other people mention that since we gave my nephew a graduation present we were entitled to some leftovers.
