Do you do that? My sister came over to see me yesterday, everytime she come over she is always complain about this and that. She came over unannouced and ask me what did I cook, I told her what I cooked and she made a plate and left, I told her at least you could stay over and talk for a while. She was in a Hurry, she said that she would take the plate home. I hate it when people do that, Do you? Family members do this all the time. Ok, have a good week!

hi marcia! no, i don't like that at all. although that is family, i think that siblings should at least give the respect that they deserve. and for my only brother, i don't think he would do that to me. i think that is very rude. anyway, that is your sister, you can always feed her all you want, but in my case, i don't approve of that. take care and God bless you! :)

I have to be very focused on what and when I am eating. I plan my meals, and I sit down to eat. Otherwise people eat to fast, and it makes it more difficult on your body to process the food.

That's extremely rude. I don't care if the person is related to you. I know my sister wouldn't do that. If she tried to, I would tell her to sit her butt down and eat in my house if she's going to bust in and eat my food.

I used to have some family members who did that, but not all the time. Usually it was friends that seemed to do it more than my family lol. I know when my kids were little I told them they weren't allowed to do that...If Aunt * (or somebody) is kind enough to make you a meal, you can at least stick around after to help clean up and chat a while before running off. They have always been considerate ever since. I don't like it when people do that either, I doubt anybody does. Hope you're having a good day!

I do not do this. I do not think it is polite to do this. I have encountered a lot of people who do this. In fact, I do have some colleagues who do this. Like there are times when we have some activities in school (where I work) and normally, lunch and/or dinner is served. These colleagues of mine attend the activity but after immediately after lunch (or dinner), they are gone.

Sometimes i do that but not as fast as your sister does. When i am busy I usually do that but I finish eating the food and try to mingle with the group as much as I could. I think you should tell your sister its rather rude that she did that kind of an attitude. I would be hurt too if I find a friend or a relative that would just come because of the free food and not the occasion.

I don't do that. It's a bad manner in my opinion,even though family members all the time. So,I think you should tell her your feel politely.

I hate to eat and run. It is not good for the disgestive system and it is plain rude. Though I can understand how people do not have much time for sitting and talking anymore. I think that it is important to find time though.

CAn't say as I have ever had it happen that they took their plate with them and but my son will come over and I offer to make him something and he says no, but then he'll go ravage the fridge and just stand there and eat whatever he takes out! I don't care, just glad he is healthy and at least visiting with me! Maybe you could chalk it up to being such a good cook they don't have time to stay, but sure as heck don't want to miss your cooking so they take it with them!

I usually have to sit down when I'm eating. I don't have to be sitting with anyone, I just need a bit of time to relax and enjoy my food. Usually though when I get home from swim practice I demand some food right away, but that's because I'm just so tired and hungry that I need to eat before I can focus of being social, lol.

Thats a very bad habit thats well known in Trinidad and also very unpopular. You should ask her the next time she comes over if she's planning to eat and run again. It should be brought to her attention how wrong she is and you should try to avoid giving her food easily again. Other than that, if it really gets to you, just don't feed her for a while.

I eat all the time. I eat just about every two hours because I'm a growing boy. I'm now 36 years old, tall and slender, and can't seem to gain a lot of weight. That doesn't really bother me because I'm happy with my weight. I'm height, weight proportionate. Everyone eats on the run. It's just a way of life for many.

Next time they come, tell them to go into the Kitchen with you, even if you have something ready,the time in the preparing something could be used for gisting atleast.

What the heck. She comes over, ask what did you cook, then gets a plate and gets some food and then just leaves with the food and the plate. At least she could have stayed and talked with you while she ate. I know what you mean about family members, they sure do get away with sh!t don't they.

I'm the kind of person that if I'm going to have or get food from someone else, then I want to sit down and chat with them. It is good manners, especially as the host has made an effort to cook the food in the first place. In my home, you want food, you stay and eat or you can go without. Noone uses me as a fast food service! lol.

I really DO NOT do that. I don't want to act rude especially that you have been offered with food. Just as a sign of respect and gratitude, a guest should stay for awhile. Leaving after eating is giving the host an impression that you just have come to eat and not to be with him/her. I don't want to eat and run. I won't ever do that unless emergencies occur.

I really don't like this thought. It seems as these people just think for themselves. I like everything to be planned in life :D
