Do you over stay a person's hospitality?

i find that if you have guests stayig over, you do enjoy for a day or so but there after it becomes painful and you start wishing that they would go away. You get tired of putting up a show and always smiling and putting your best foot forward. Besides, financially too it becomes difficult. My grand father used to say "One day guest there after a pest." Have you ever faced such a problem?

Luckily for me I haven't experienced that problem...yet . Since we haven't yet for a very long time here in our house. My mother experienced that problem though. She was too hospitable. She always provide lots of food and snack and even lunch to her friends which kept them from coming into our house. The problem with my mother is she doesn't know how to say NO. Good thing nobody is doing that to her anymore. Now that she doesn't serve a lot of food like she used to.

No, but I definiltely follow your grandfather’s wisdom to the core. I have never stayed overnight at any person’s house as a guest. I disctintly dislike it. I understand only too well how much of a trouble that causes to the hosts, after entertaining a guest is not easy and after a hard tiem, they need to unwind and take rest at night, but with guests staying over you can never relax. On my part as a guest, I too feel uncomfortable staying at somebody’s hosue…I am not as free as I can be if I stay at the hotel.

It is an old man's wise saying. Yes I do agree with it. If it is for a short stay it is one thing but if it is a long one it becomes a burden even a financial one.
