Social Dilemma - Should Your Guests Help You Clean Up After A SB Party?

Today's social dilemma came from an email I received from a friend of mine late last night.  I was already sound asleep when she sent it, but when I read it this morning, I thought, yeah this needs to be today's social dilemma.   My friends name is Jen.  She lives about an hour and a half from here, a little past Oneonta.  She had a BIG Super Bowl party yesterday.  I didn't go because it was too far away.  But apparently a LOT of people went to her party, about 20-25 people.  Anyway, in her email, she was furious.  This is what she wrote.  

"I hope you can talk me off the ledge because I’m so angry at my friends right now after my Super Bowl party last night.   The reason I’m so upset is that after the game was over and my house was a mess everyone just left and I was stuck cleaning everything all by myself.   Now everyone told me how much fun they had but I’m really upset and will never have a Super Bowl party again.  Do I have every right to be mad about no one helping clean up or should I not expect that from party guests?"   

She went on and on about it, but that was the gist of it.  My response.   If you invite people to your house, they are guests and shouldn't be expected to clean.  It would have been nice of them to help out, and I would have if I were there, but you can't expect that from people.   Jen was not happy with my response   LOL.   What do you think?  Let me know on the 98-3 TRY facebook page
