I hate it when people come to your house and tell you you shouldn’t serve that first/you should serve this first/you should serve this with that.
Um, no. Just because in our culture we have different ways of doing things it doesn’t make them bad. Or wrong. Nor do we do things just like that…there’s a thought process behind it.
When I go to your house, I eat whatever you put on the table, whenever you put it on the table and keep my mouth shut. I don’t complain about how this should’ve been served first/last. & guess what? I accept you to do the same thing!
Don’t degrade other people’s cultures just because they’re different than yours. If you can’t handle the change or difference of those specific people’s routine when serving guests, then I suggest you stay in your house or within your little circle of family and friends who do things your way.
I can understand if you point out you’re on a diet or you don’t eat something or you’re allergic to something etc, but if you’re just going to make me feel like my culture and unique way of doing things is stupid, then bye.
Seriously, just bye.
