Sister-in-Law Resents Assumption That She'll Provide Maid Service

DEAR MISS MANNERS: Although I did not comment, I was offended when a dinner guest got up from the table and fed her steak to her dog. She has no dietary restrictions, so I can only assume she didn't like it.

The other guests consumed every morsel, so I know it wasn't because it was not tasty. My husband says I am being over-sensitive. What do you think?

GENTLE READER: That you should stop allowing guests to bring their dogs to your dinner parties.
