Horse 507 - Am I The Only One Who Gets This?

Is it anyone else who get this kind of callousness or is it just me?

Last night being Friday, I got back from work and was in the mood to do much, then I got this phone call:

"We're having a few people around for dinner on Saturday night. Do you think you could come around and bring some of your famous sushi rolls?"

Aha, I thought, something to do for tonight and for tommorrow night. So I've spent par of this morning tracking down some nori and some more sushi vinegar and spent part of the afternoon with my little wooden rollings mats turning out a few futomaki (big rolls) before cutting them up into little bite size bits.
I then drive about half an hour to my friends house and they were obviously in a flap because they were getting ready for when then people turned up, and Iwas told the following.

"Ah, it's good that you brought them here. Now I think you'll want to be leaving fairly soon as we have guests coming in about half an hour"

"Er?"

"No, you're not invited. It's a couples only thing, we've got about a dozen people coming and we wouldn't want you to feel left out."

At which point I was hurried out of the door and into the night.
Now maybe it's a case of misinterpreting something, but I've spent a couple of hours effort in getting the ingredients, preparation time, as well as the price of the good in the first place (salmon fillet doesn't come as cheap as chicken).

Forgive me if I'm more than just a little peeved here. Do I feel more left out for actually being left out?

I've decided to let this one go. I've got other things to do tonight... namely anything.
