Still, an offer of basic hospitality when someone is doing you a big favor seems pretty standard. If they didn't get along with you guys enough to invite you to dinner, then they shouldn't have been asking for this.

They weren't married, but yeah. DS's biomom's.

One small clarification. DS is actually my stepson, although that's not how I think of him, having raised him. The grandparents were not related to LDH or me.

Whose parents are they then?  Your LDH's first wife's parents?

I would at the least have had dinner ready when you got there or shortly after, and offered a bed for the night. If you had to go back the same day, at least you wouldn't have to starve till you got home or spend a chunk of money buying dinner out.

it did seem odd to assume that 2 women at an all inclusive resort would be mother and daughter instead of friends.

And, again, even if he for some reason assumed it, or at any rate thought it most likely, why voice it? If he found 'your companion' or 'the other lady' a bit stilted, he could always have said 'your friend'. I can't see any situation in which that would cause offence.

I think it's entirely possible, given the situation, that he was chatting you up to increase his tips.

I have a buddy who remembered her first encounter with olives. She was at a wedding reception, and some older relative tried to get her to try some. It ended with the relative literally chasing her around the reception with olives insisting she eat them. She still doesn't like them.

Yes, they should have offered you dinner. In fact, I would have wanted to discuss it with you beforehand. That way if you didn't want to stay for dinner, I could prepare something for you to eat on the way home. Or had DS fed. Or so that you could have given a 20 minute warning so that I could make sure that it was ready when you got there.

Right. Default to "friend" and allow the two of you correct them (if you want.) Or since the bartender was chatting with you, he could have asked how you know each other. But I would think that this sort of resort sees all kinds of relationships and should NEVER assume anything.

Dinner and the offer of a bed overnight would be the least I would do for someone who drove a couple of hours to do me a favour, let alone five!
