A Resourceful Guest

Image courtesy of www.bandofartists.com

Desperate times call for desperate measures and resourcefulness. Practical Celebrity (PC) has no qualms about being true and taking advantage of the situation. Whenever PC attends social functions, she makes sure she has her loads of containers for leftovers. Thus, as soon as she arrives, she gets in touch with the waiters to ensure that she gets what she wants.

In one posh event, PC saw that the high society guests will not be able to finish the overwhelming amount of food served. Thus, PC went into action. PC stayed on until the party was over. True to her hunch, the food was indeed quite plenty. PC instructed the waiters to fill her containers. PC asked permission from the host, but as the host was busy, she just gave permission to PC without thinking.

As soon as the containers were filled up, PC ended up with three bags. As she could not carry all three, she asked Lovable Lady (LL) to bring two of the bags. LL was dressed to the nines, but she could not say no to PC. PC gave her the eye and LL did not want to risk a scandal if she refused PC.

While leaving, LL bumped into Sassy Celebrity (SC), who asked why LL was carrying many bags. LL said that the containers contained food for their dogs. SC smiled but PC was quick to refute LL. PC questioned the statement and said that the food was their meal for a week. Embarrassed, LL dropped the bags and walked away. PC then asked the waiters for help.

So, every time PC comes to an event, whispers are loud that the food hustler is within the midst.

  1. Hindl ko kilala pero very unethical naman kahit magpaalam ka sa host. Hindi lang yun maka hindi dahil nahihiya.

    1. unethical? paano? FYI, most catering companies eh tinatapon lang nila ang pagkain. wala pa kasi batas regarding sa excess food disposal. bawal i-uwi yung sobra ng mga staff ng catering.. so ang ending, tapon sa basurahan ang pagkain... that is based on my experience sa kasal ng ate ko recently...

      Delete
    2. Mejo hindi lang sosyal yung mag uwi ng food from a showbiz party pero dedma. Nagpaalam naman kay host kaya ok na and kumuha naman sya after the party..not before. No to food waste talaga. Super laki ng impact sa buong mundo kung lahat marunong maging masinop sa pagkain. Less carbon footprint and wala sana nagugutom.

    3. Si A ito. matagal nang issue ito. pero for me ok lang as long as nakakain na lahat at talagang tira na ito. masasayang kung itatapon lang.

    4. Sa mga catered parties na na host ko inuwi ko ang left overs after makakain ng staff..nasa contract kasi namin yun re left overs, pero ang pakainin ang waiters, discretion ko na.. nasa host na yan kung ano gagawin sa left overs. Pero sana since its a super posh event, she could have been discreet about it plus sana hindi na nga siya nandamay ng ibang artista..

    5. Nagpaalam ang tao pinayagan. Let's leave it there. Kesa naman antayin nyang itapon tapos saka nya kalkalin sa basura.

      Delete
    6. Di naman unethical yun, nagpaalam naman eh at saka hinintay matapos ang party saka nagbalot, Cguro sumobra lang kasi sya na halos ang nag uwi ng mga natira

    7. It's a cheap act kahit na sabihin pa na tinatapon pa lang ng caterer ang food. You can afford to buy nmn bakit always nag dadala ng bringhome. Prang every party nandon para mka bring home. It's just extremely cheap.

    8. Parang dun na siya nag grogorcery sa mga party hahaha! Siguro isang linggo na nya yan papakain sa bahay nila

    1. 3 bags. Di ka ba nakakaintindi?

    2. Grabe naman ito. Saan ba at kaninong party ba ito at ang daming tira? E yung mga napupuntahan kong catered na parties e pag dumating ako, ako na sumisimot dahil paubos na! As in ang ingay nung sandok dahil yung sarsa masarap simot ko talaga dun sa food tray. Minsan kahit maaga na ako wala pa ding natitira! Baka naman hindi kasi masarap yung food kaya madaming tira. Usually mga natitira sa mga ganyang catered pansit lang. Pero uuwi ko pa rin yun kalamansi lang katapat nun sa umaga.

  3. Is this R?

    I hate food getting wasted, so anyone who wants the unconsumed staples, whether it's for themselves or their pets, it isn't an issue. I'll only have something to say if there are still plenty of unfed guests and she had already packed for herself what were prepared.

  10. IMO, I rather have guests take the leftover foods after party keysa masayang.

    1. Yup.. ako din, sa house namin usually kapag may party at alam ko na wala ng guest na kakain yung mga leftover pinapatake out ko tlga sa mga huling guest kesa naman masayang at itapon. Yung iba nahhiya magbitbit.. kmi sa catering kapag may functions/events at may natira bawal iuwi or kainin ng mga waiters namin kaya kesa masayang ini insist namin sa may events na ipa take out sa mga guest nila.

    2. 1:30 and 5:46 I laaaavvvv u 2! Pwede niyo ba akong ampunin? Hamps lupa ako.

    3. I agree. We actually have to-go boxes ready for our guests in case they want to take leftovers home. Ok lang naman yun, lalo na if they enjoyed the food - e di iuwi for them to enjoy at home.

      Delete
    4. In classy, very high end gatherings, it is wrong for the guests to take out food hindi ito kaugalian.Ang host ang tiga uwi ng pagkain.

    3. KaH or KaF??

      Delete
    4. Oo nga, please clue lang kay Ms practical. Di sya hampaslupa. I don't find anything wrong. Kung ako ang host ng party I would be glad that the food I paid for will not go to waste... and yes, bawal mag uwi ng food ang staff ng catering services.

      Delete
    5. R is I think KaF. A is more associated at KaH

  16. Pag may potluck kami, nakaugalian na ang mag uwi ng natirang food kasi di naman mauubos ng maybahay lahat. Hindi naman kami naghihirap pero ang hirap magluto, lalo na busy sa trabaho. Reheat lang, ok na. Pumayag naman si host so ok lang. Sana lang nagtira din sya para sa host

  22. if that’s here in US,sa mga parties ng pinoy ang host may handa nang ziploc para sa bisita coz ang daming food lagi at di nman nila makakain lahat kaya ipapauwi talaga yan.

    1. It’s not the same. It’s a catered affair. The party giver also have house staff and the catering staff can use the extra food. It won’t be wasted. That woman is just too cheap and greedy.

  23. TBH...wala naman masama sa ginawa ni pc. kesa naman masayang lang ang pagkain napakadaming tao ang nagugutom.
    Ako kapag kumakain kami ng mga barkada ko ako taga ubos lagi ng pagkain dahil sayang lang itapon. kaya ang ending 3 layers na din ang bilbil ko. 😂

  25. Gawain ko ito pero pag maraming leftovers. kasi ako nanghihinayang, kaysa matapon lang.

    ReplyDelete
  26. In terms of etiquette, mali talaga si PC and pg levels lang. First, she could inform the host ahead of the event na she plans to have some of the leftovers wrapped and that she will bring her containers. Why wait for the event kasi? Invited naman sya and I'm pretty sure she had to RSVP so bakit hindi na sya magpaalam at that point. This would've made the host think na oo nga, sayang ung leftovers and she could've have had the leftovers wrapped for any attendee to take home if they wanted to as an SOP. Pero stealth mode eh, so PC knew what she was doing was "shameful" and her attitude was panindigan na lang if mahuli. Siguro ayaw maunahan sa leftovers or ayaw ng kaagaw which makes her shameless and greedy, not really practical - PG levels lang talaga. There would've been a more graceful way to ask for the leftovers pero she's too focused on the act of just getting the leftovers.

    1. 943 eh nagpaalam naman syat pinagbigyan. For me mas nasahol yong hindi pa nagstart ang party nag inforn ka na. Atat lang ang dating? What if walang matira eh di both pa kayo ng host maawakward kasi wala ngang natira sayo.

    2. This os soo correct.Yung BI said that the lady is known for this! Hustler siya sa pa take out everytime there is an event.Nakakahiya.I mean kuntodo gown and kunwari sosyal tapos naka abang pala sa left overs.Nakaka cheap!

  33. Daming affected lol! Wala naman talagang masama mag take out pero yung ginawa nya oa naman sa pagka garapal. Pano kung si host eh gusto din pala mag uwi or may pag bibigyan. Kung mag uuwi ka sakto lang, wag naman yung wala ka na tinira sa table lol! Parang umattend ka lang talaga ng party/event para di ka na mag grocery ng isang linggo at ipakain na lang ang leftovers sa mga tao sa bahay nyo

  37. Is she really desperate for free food? Is she that poor already? It’s better to have the catering staff eat the extra food because they work hard and they are not paid much.

  40. Madaming nagsasabi na walang masabi na magtake out ng leftover foods sa isang event. Pero hello? Spell delicadeza at kahihiyan. Hindi lang si PC ang tao sa event na yun kaya bakit hakot galore siya ng food. 3 containers pa?! Grabedad naman yan! May iba pang guests at kahit paano e may waiters na umaasa din dun sa leftovers. Hindi practical ang tawag dyan - walang kahihiyan.

  41. Yung mga nagcocomment dito nagtatalo pa regarding sa take out. di na nahulaan kung sino! More clues naman guys kaH ba or KaF?
