Hmm. Me and Stina see two very differnt things in this
I don'tknow - even as a kid I was taught to bring my dish into the kitchen when I was at someone's house.

I can see being intimidated the first time, MAYBE,but if they are engaged, she should be way past that.

I ahve a vision of a nice quiet Polish girl brought into a large Italian family and being both overwhelmed and intimidated by her BF's mother and 14 others who are talking loudly using Italian phrases ad eyeing her as an addition to the gene pool.
I'd hide under the table rather than touch the good china.
I got the sameimpression as well. Being an extrovert and loving strangers at parties, I would do okay in that situation. But many people would be so uncomfortable, they'd nearly be frozen in their chairs. I think a large, boisterous (sp?) family would be very intimidating to a lot of people.

L1: So you're thinking about taking mom to court for force daughter to see you but everyone is telling you it's not the way to go. It isn't. It gives insight, however, as to why she doesn't want to see you. Dye your hair blue and show up at her house with tickets to her favorite concert. That'll start a convo.
I don't think he should dye his hair blue -- he'd be copying her -- but buying three concert tickets for him and her and her friend would be a great start.

Different personalities + different upbringigs = very different outcomes and very different responses to that situation.

unless I am asked, the most I will do at someone else's house is take MY dishes to the sink.


Both of these say the same thing.

I'm saying don't EXPECT anything more than that without asking. If you want more than that out of me, ask. Don't just expect that I'm going to clean your kitchen.

LW sounds like she has a crew of 14 people cleaning up after the meal, not simply taking stuff to the sink.
