Had a wonderful food review session earlier at Frontera Sol of Mexico earlier with my hubby and son (will blog about it once I sort the pics out), but can’t help but spot an extremely rude gentlemen who pointed his finger at MY table and asked the host if the ones who were sitting there are bloggers.
I think he thought we’re not invited or something and is there for free treats. In which, I can assure you that we were not there for free treats. My husband and I were both invited separately, and each invited bloggers were allowed to bring a guest with them. I don’t see why it’s wrong to bring my son along too since I’ve informed the host beforehand that my son will be tagging along with me during the foodie session. (Note: I don’t go to events that is single invite. Or events that my husband does not have his own invitation too)
At the end of the day, I really wonder why he didn’t come straight up and ask directly since he thought we’re not invited and questioned the host about it instead? No balls for it? Is it so strange that both husband and wife are bloggers for separate blogs and have own invitation each for certain events? Never seen such thing before?
Obviously this person have not been mixing with bloggers whose genre are parenting before. I’ve seen plenty of family and mummy bloggers bringing along their children or spouses to the events that they’re invited to, and all usually made a point to ask the host if it’s a single invite or if they are allowed to bring their children or not. And I’ve seen plenty of couples who are both bloggers as well.
Do you seriously think we couple/ family/mummy bloggers are freeloaders? Think again before you start pointing fingers and go around condemning and stereotyping people. I’m sure I’m speaking up for all couples/ mummy/parent bloggers who let their children tag along during events too.
Cleffairy: It’s VERY RUDE to point fingers to people when people are looking at him. He ought to have put down his hand once he noticed people glaring back at him. Wonder if that guy’s mama ever taught him any manners at all.
