    I had a show last night (it will end up about $450 I think) and she had never been to or given a PC party before. After I'd done the demo, people were eating and ordering, I noticed she had slipped into the bathroom and gave her 2 y.o. a bath! Not that I needed her, but I was amazed. A bit funny I thought.

    No, but I did have a host leave her party to go pick up and deliver kids to different locations. Very strange...the guests left too, and I wasn't sure what I was supposed to do...being left alone in someone else's house. It was weird.

    For a minute I thought she gave the little one a bath in the kitchen sink while you did the show. LOL

    I need more sleep.

    Well, the show was done, and I was taking orders...and she just left. The guests placed their orders and left, and so I just cleaned up my stuff, packed up and left too...I don't know when the host made it home.

    Oh - that reminds me...(do this business long enough, and you'll see it all!) one time I got to a host's house, and her husband let me in. He told me his wife was taking a shower, and would be down soon.

    Yep - pretty soon she came strolling into the kitchen - wearing nothing but a skimpy bath towel. She proceeded to help get ingredients out for me, using one hand to keep her towel wrapped around her. She was chatting with me the whole time like nothing was odd about this. All of a sudden, she looked at the clock, and said "Oh, I better go get dressed before people get here!"

    I guess I didn't qualify as "people".:rolleyes:

    LOL...I read this thread earlier today and while I was at my show, I just couldn't wait to get home to type this up. LOL

    Mine is not nearly as bad as all that ....but the M-I-L is a former consultant so I was already nervous (since I am kind of a newbie) but she was nice-enough. But the whole time I am doing my thing, she is talking to the various guests about random things---spa parties, candle parties, her grandkids---while I'm talking. Oh and by the way, I am trying to talk OVER the television that is behind the guests b/c I could tell some of them were straining to hear me. And the TV had to be on because the kids were in and out watching it. And about 3 times the husband (son of the consultant) kept asking me about Tastefully Simple products. I offered him a business card of someone I know. LOL

    All of this after the cat had walked across the counter and the dog licked my spatula.

    (and yes I cleaned both!)

    My sister's SIL hosted for me. Well, when I got there she had just woken up. There was a goat IN THE HOUSE, and dog hair ALL OVER the floor! I didn't want to even set down my bags! She was like "Oh my--my husband let me sleep in!" Hello? Can we say ALARM CLOCK?! Her kids were being good and the house really was tidy, it was just filthy! She lives out in farm country and has goats, apparently one got in that morning. There was also goat milk on the counter, she had to point out to me that it was special for their baby goat...not for us to confuse w/ our recipe ingredients.

    She had a great show, good turnout, great orders. But that beginning was something else!

    Egads -- a goat in the house? I'm so glad to hear others have had weird experiences, as well. I couldn't imagine the one where the host left and so did everyone else, leaving the consultant in the house alone to pack up and leave.

    The longer you do this, the more weird things you'll experience.

    I'm not even going to mention the "potty party" because it's so gross. ;)

    Thanks for finding that for me, Jodi. And it's the good one because it's the follow-up post with the continuing saga. :)

    Egads!! Yes, we should write a book!! No, on second thought, people would be scared to become a consultant!! Thanks for the laughs! Ann, I think I would have thrown up and had to leave their darn potty party!!
