I said no to her party after this insult

DEAR MISS MANNERS: My friend was having an open house and a catered holiday meal, and she invited my husband and me and our two teenaged children.

I asked if she would mind if we brought a friend of ours who had nowhere to go, no family nearby, etc.

Her response shocked me. She essentially said “how dare I ask to bring a stray” with a sob story, and throw that in her lap. She told me she was sure our friend could find somewhere else to go.

I then declined her offer and told her we wouldn’t be able to come after all, saying we were going to have dinner at my house so my “stray” wouldn’t have to spend the holiday alone.
