Having a dinner party, everyone contributing some food. One friend agrees to make a cake for pudding but turns up with a shop bought one from M & S and apologised saying she hadn't had time as she started a new job. AIBU to think she shouldn't have misled us about making the cake?

I'd expect my friends to be more understanding.

YABU to care.

Nah, if you're busy, you're busy.

We've all had time slip away from us.

You had a cake and her company.

She brought a cake which she said she would bring. So what if she bought it?

She didn't mislead you. She ran out of time. Be grateful she at least stopped to buy one!

Erm - she just started a new job. Cut her some slack

Cake is cake, don't be so precious.

Are you serious ?

Given a choice between my baking and M&S's, my mates would be very pleased to see an M&S one.

2BoysTooLoud Fri 02-Sep-11 20:41:50

My friends would be relieved if I took round a nice M&S cake rather than make one!

Are you Mumsnetting during a dinner party? shock

DoMeDon Fri 02-Sep-11 20:42:10

Misled you about the cake!?! confused Are you serious - have a biscuit in case you're still hungry!

YABU OP cake is cake

TheOriginalFAB Fri 02-Sep-11 20:42:17

She didn't mislead you. She offered to make it, discovered she couldn't and bought a nice one. She didn't bring a quid sponge from Asda ffs.

YABU and daft.

OhCobblers Fri 02-Sep-11 20:42:18

I'd possibly be a bit narked if it was from Asda (grin) and i DO shop there!!

To be serious though is it really such big deal that it wasn't home made?

Sounds like the kind of thing i would do!

MumblingRagDoll Fri 02-Sep-11 20:42:19

YABU at least it was M&S! Get over it!

Misled about a cake indeed!

Sn0wflake Fri 02-Sep-11 20:42:32

Yeah I think you are being precious about this. Who the hell cares?

Hullygully Fri 02-Sep-11 20:42:42

what a fucking lazy rude bitch. I have never ever ever heard anything like it. I'm surprised you didn't ramn it straight down her lazy gob.

winnybella Fri 02-Sep-11 20:42:49

Oh come on everybody-it's a wind up. Surely no one is so ridiculous as to care where the bloody cake came from hmm

LyingWitchInTheWardrobe Fri 02-Sep-11 20:42:49

Get the picture, OP? Cake is cake. You're being unreasonable. grin

You're so worried by this problem, you've named yourself after it? grin

I like M&S cake, it's not like she brought an Iceland Arctic Roll
