What is an Apology Dinner?
Apology Dinner trended online after one woman asked Reddit on a popular sub, AITA if she was wrong by asking attendees to bring dishes to hers. The post goes on to explain how her mother decided to host an Apology Dinner, for her older sister. She was left in charge of food and beverages, as her mom was ‘busy writing her apology.’ But when the guest list unexpectedly increased, she decided to make it a potluck affair. What is interesting here, is that the poster went on explaining what a potluck is, but no hint about the apology dinner. “We went forward with the Apology Dinner, but my sister call me the A**hole for undermining the apology,” the post added.
