*Ask Agmac* is back!!

Dear Agmac,

What’s the appropriate protocol for taking back a bottle of booze or alcohol that you have brought to a party? Let’s say that it was never opened, is it OK to take it back with you?


Dear Bo,

The general rule of thumb is if you brought it, you leave it. However, there are some exceptions to this rule:
#1, if you brought it but never took it out of your bag, thus never presenting it to the host, then it's ok to take it back,
#2, if the host has such a surplus that he/she ASKS you to take it back,
#3, if you and the host/hostess get in a major fight and it seems as if you will never speak to them again.

However, if you brought said alcohol as a gift or even just to share at the party, and none of the above rules apply to you, leave it there cheapskate!
