I think edog means that if you are polite then you should assume, but if your dont assume then you are rude unless its is not expected in which case it is not rude to not assume.

What Angela said. Its about expectations. Yes, it would be nice if I asked if you wanted me to bring anything. But not asking does not make me rude. If you expct me to bring something, then that expectation needs to be explicit, not just assumed.

What race said, the polite thing to do would be to ask. The onus of being polite is on YOU.

LW2 - it's unfathomable to me that someone would open gifts with 20 others hanging aroudn wathchin...

a cuople years back, my mom started scaling back their christmas day dinner, but i had some home made stuff for one person there. i told my mom what & where it was, and asked her to slip it to her wiht her apptizer plates. the other people suggested not gifting (& everyone was ok with that), but the other lady is a good, quality friend of hte family. the other people are tedious and getting more irritating by the year.

I HATE when they do that with a passion. WITH A PASSION, I SAY!

I'm on a "save thanksgiving" crusade this year... i've always been one to wait until the day after to decorate (unless it was at work and marketing said we had to earlier). last year i had the christmas lights up in the front window alerady (ok, they just never ever came down, but weren't lit), so all i had to do was plug them into the timer.

this year, between not having thanksgiving houseguests and traveling in early December, i don't kwno what i'm going to do to decorate. we will have to get a tree this year, as we'll have christmas houseguests this year. and i think the boys should have the experience and wonder of a christmas tree... i may forgo the string of leg lamp lights... that's just a little too appealing to someone who's almost two.

Wow. Topix ate my post again. Short version.
LW1: You are not allowed to stalk or e-stalk your daughters. My friend's dad did this all the time and my own father did this once. It is beyond creepy. Get some therapy to manage your trust issues.

Too late. As a result of Daddy's neurotic controlling, they've already been effin for years.
