The worst house guest for me are family like my niece along with her husband and two kids. The are so messy and nasty too. Never put their belongings away, to lazy to put dirty diapers in a plastic bag before before throwing it away. Broke the daybed and still sleep on it. Let their toddler walk around dripping his milk bottle all over the floor and wrong wipe it up without being told to. Husband don't know what soap and water is used for either. I couldn't take another day to see them GO! Niece always making up excuses instead of taking responsibility.

i too don't like house guest, we had lots of it before. now thankfully we rarely have them cause i had bad experiences with house guests. like relatives who decided to pay a visit and they can be really irritating for me to be with at home. and life seems to be more restricted when they are around. i don't do well with relatives around or any bad house guests.

LOL. Poor you. those are the visitors that when they want to come back the next time, you have some ready made excuses: 1. "We'd love to have you, but our house is going to be quarantined and we cannot be exposed to endotoxins (germs from farm animals)." 2. "When did you say you were coming? We're going to take a trip to the islands at that time. How long did you want to stay? What a coincidence. That's exactly how long we will be gone." Anyway, they're out. Keep them out.

To answer your question, yes. I've had a few. So I know exactly what you mean.

We live in a tiny one-bedroom apartment, so small we only have room for a single bed and a couch, so if my husband and I can't even sleep in the same room, we don't have room for houseguests. We like it that way. That way we can avoid problems like the one you just described. LOL It's great! OK we're going to get a futon for the living room so we can sleep together, but aside from the sleeping arrangements, this apt is ideal.

Yes, I did have quite a few. Some were relatives. My house "pest" didnt take care of her kids, either. When they would use the bathroom, their urine would be all over the place. It was disgusting. They also went into our cabinets and shelves, touched things, took things and put them where they don't belong. They also broke 2 computers in our home. One broke when one of the kids put candy inside the DVD Drive and they didnt offer to pay for it. They come unannounced, they stay and they eat up all our food and they dont even bother to clean up whenever they make a mess. In addition that that, the kids would write on the walls with felt pens so that really pi$$ed me off.

Hi Yparson. Yesss! I think we've all had at least one houseguest from hell. For me, this is anyone who is thoughtless and leaves messes, or someone who has children they let run wild, making no effort to curtail that behavior! Things get broken, all peace is disturbed, and ack! It wears thin and gets on the nerves lol. Karen

It's hard to say no when it's family. I know my cousin was staying here from another state and I offered her an extra bedroom, but my parents told her to come stay with them. I'm glad they did. On the last day they wanted to get a picture of her and her two daughters before they headed out of state again and they couldn't find their camera. My cousin went through her daughters bag and found a lot of other things that she had taken out of my parents home. So now when my cousin comes back she puts a tent up in the park because we all just don't want to chance it. I don't think this is your niece entirely, sounds like she is married to a slob and lost her way on how to take care of anything. I'm sorry, I know that must be hard to sit back and look at another just run their own life down hill.

Hello I know someone like this and it really stinks, it makes you say to yourself what goes through their mind, if I was to live with someone I would be the perfect house guest, I would always think to myself well let me do this or that this way no one can say I did not do my part, I always wonder why do people think it is o.k to allow your children or you yourself to just mess up other peoples things, if someone lived with me and acted in this way I would tell them, I hate people that do things like that, not only are they irresponsible they are inconsiderate nasty, selfish and everything else you can think of, I feel your pain and that is so wrong of your family to do this, family/friend no one has the right to come into someones home and not keep it as you found it,when you have children you need to keep your eye on them and clean up after them, its not our place to clean up after your kids or you for that matter, grrrrrr things like this makes me so mad. Thank you

I won't say, we had a guest from hell. A distant relative came to stay with us lately. He brought her son. The boy was demanding and the parents were virtually on their hands and feet to serve him. He was the 'Little Emperor' because of the Chinese policy of one child, one family. He threw tantrums as much as he wants and threw things around. Other than that, he was okay.

i am sad that that is happening to u. never had i experienced house guests who are like them. always, my close relatives visit us in the house, stay for a night or two, but they are nice and even help in some of the house chores as washing the plates or clearing the table after meals. we just have to accept that not all people are responsible as others are. be patient, they are only temporary dwellers there. if not, u can tell ur niece nicely about it.
