Miss Manners’ Belly

Dear Miss Manners:

Recently I visited some close friends. My friend’s wife–being a generous and good host–put out a candy dish brimming with Jelly Bellys. Sweet!

Only…there was no legend!

What if I took a blind handful and ended up with Pear? Popcorn is a bastard no one will claim.

I instantly demanded she put out a legend: she refused.

We got into an argument over a host’s Jelly Belly’s responsibilities:
I say a good host always puts out the legend with Jelly Belly’s, she disagrees and says I should grow up.

Who is right?
