  1. I was babysitting my nephews and @ the last minute I was asked to bring them to a classmates halloween’s party. I brought a bottle of wine and I saw no one was drinking it. The parents had their own collection of alcohol and made it fun with dry ice. The parents were good hosts and they wanted this party as a way to connect with their children’s classmates and parents. I had a good time. Didn’t eat much and my bottle of wine was expensive. I took it home after asking the mother if it was okay with her to take it back. I thought afterwards, That was rude of me. My nephews got a treat bag, free food and the parents didn’t get to connect with my sister and her husband. All that showed up were closer friends and their kids. The hosts wasted a lot of food cause if they invited the whole class? The next day was a carnival at their school. So was I rude?
