Apparently they were ticked off that, acquiescing to my father's wishes, I made a ham instead of a turkey. So rather than one of them offering to bring a bird, they just got pissy and cancelled at the last minute for made-up reasons - but spread the word far and wide that the REAL reason was me "taking over" bird day, LOL! Like any of them had done a single holiday meal for the whole family since I quit doing them, or offered to do it that year, or even to bring something!

I figure he who pays, says. Also the 87 year old guy gets first choice. I don't care what it is - even if it's brats and hot dogs. He only had one or two bird days after that. And actually *I* paid for the whole thing (which they didn't even show up for) as they had bled him dry for the month already and he didn't even have grocery money. No one offered to so much as bring a couple cans of corn. And they STILL complained because when they showed up to take leftovers home, over the next few days, I hadn't made a pumpkin pie, just apple pie and chocolate chip cookies, LOL! How thoughtless and self-centered can you get? My dad didn't like pumpkin pie, hadn't asked for it, they didn't even show up for the day despite saying they would, and then they had the colossal gall to complain about the leftovers, ROFLMAO!
How rude!. I wouldn't dream of even asking what my hosts were intending to serve. And even if I hated it I would (wo)manfully plough through it and smile.

And showing up to get left-overs when they didn't call on the day - well, I'm gob-smacked (to use a rather vulgar English expression)!

I was gob-smacked as well.

I didn't realize that expression was vulgar. Most of the Brits I know aren't very classy. But, now that you mention it, the few classy Brits I know don't use that expression.

Thank you PF. I've just read it. Very interesting. I knew about the Amish but hadn't heard of the Hutterites

Not really very vulgar. There are worse expressions but, of course, respectable spinsters like me wouldn't know them

It's slang really, not rude as such.

So, less crude than say, "bugger"?

Maybe we should start a thread on international rude words and phrases. Some terms used by other locations may not be understood to be rude to the person reading them. Bloody, for instance, is one such word in England, along with bugger. In the U.S. these words don't carry the same connotations as in the British Isles. And I'm sure that there are colloquialisms in every location that would seem rude, or even vulgar to others.

Vulgarities are often used frequently in some circles, and considered a simple part of the language. I don't use them by choice. I haven't for almost 40 years now. And so, I would just as soon not use words or phrases that may be considered vulgar, or irreverent to Deity in other locations either.

But that's just me.

Wow! I was just reading an article from The Wall Street Journal about the convergence of Thanksgiving and Hanukkah. I reckon, seein' as how this won't happen again for some 77,000 odd years or so, if I can create some fusion recipes for our Thanksgiving table.
Now, I just want to say that I have many friends who are of the Jewish faith, and I have a great admiration and respect for Jewish tradition and the accompanying procedures they follow in the preparation of food. I really enjoyed the times that I have been invited to dine with these friends.
I think I am going to seek the advice of a few of my friends to see if, in fact, I can come up with something special, in view of this rare occurrence.
I will say that I was somewhat dismayed by the tone of the article particularly in respect to the commercialism discussed. I reckon there ain't no escaping the almighty dollar, no matter what the occasion.

Note: As always, I defer to the judgement of our moderators, and if this post is over the line regarding religious discussions, I will abide by their wisdom, without further discussion.

I grew up in a home where some very colorful language was used.

When I got out into the business world I tried to train myself not to use many of those words because they tend to POP out during moments of stress and frustration.

Now that I am old I find myself returning to a more colorful style of speaking!
