Whether it’s been your friend, parents, grandparents or just someone you’re doing a favour for, we’ve all had guests that are just brutal…
Here’s what people said are the WORST things your house guests do:
1. Staying indefinitely.
It’s number 1. Surprise surprise…
This is only bad if you CATCH them snooping!
3. Showing up without any warning.
Ah yes, the ‘pop in’… As long as it doesn’t turn in to a short-term ‘move in’.
4. Bringing an extra guest without running it by you.
Personally, I think this is only bad if the person is brutally annoying.
5. Critiquing your home.
Most of us find it condescending.
6. Making a mess.
Just CLEAN IT UP!
7. Smoking inside.
Why are you even friends with someone who just assumes this is OK?
8. Being too loud.
Let’s be honest, this is the worst whether it’s a guest a co-worker or just someone in your everyday life.
9. Eating too much of your food.
Especially if you’re broke and can only eat gluten free, diamond-encrusted foods! ($$)
10. Not offering to help with chores.
Especially with dishes after THEY ate the meal! Gotta say, a little disappointed this isn’t higher on the list.
The survey also found the BEST things a guest can do: Keeping their area clean (obviously) . . . being clear about when they’re arriving and leaving (obviously) . . . giving you a gift (don’t need to be a guest to do this) . . . and sending a thank-you note (that’s unnecessary, but I’ll take it…)
