My granddaughter rarely visits but recently came for a meal on her way somewhere, accompanied by partner and his three children.
I enjoyed planning, shopping for and preparing a special lunch and extravagant dessert.
They sat looking at their plates and the partner said with a laugh, "We stopped off for burgers on the way." They had known I was preparing a meal and ate almost nothing so it was wasted.
Was I unreasonable to say, "Never mind, I'll just do a sandwich next time"?
