I invited a friend over while I was pet sitting. The lady Im petsitting said it was alright. Now I bought $80.00 of groceries for the 4 days Im here (for her for the night as well as my lunches for work). Now if I was at someone elses house I would take my shoes off, she is walsing around with them on. I was always taught to take them off and its rude. I was preparing lunch / snack, and I turn around here shes picking her nose at the table. She isnt young and should know better. I was always taught to not take food unless offered, or they serve you. She just dove in there and piled the food on her plate. Shes now complaining how bored she is as I asked her to come over as she doesnt go anywhere nor doesnt work. I told her I would be working all day and will be relaxing all night online, abd working on my homework. I just figured company but Im starting to regret it now.

She could have thought it was ok to make a plate sice you asked her to spend time with you. I would think she was not going to be there and need to ask or wait on you to offer. If I am here with a friend and I cook they already know when I am done they can make a plate. Maybe you are not that close of a friend to her as she feels to you. I would not sit and let anyone pick their nose at my table though..

I just hate to know one of my friends picks their nose and at the table in full view of you, plus never takes off her shoes. I'm not sure where you found this little lass but I'm thinking she needs to stay home now as well. Bored people are often boring themselves. She should have brought something to do, what does she expect, to go out and party now? I would have been there, made some food for the both of us if possible, talked a bit and then perhaps watched TV there if it was allowed (and not bothered you much while you worked all day) as I never get to watch much TV here cause my (nearly) 45 yr old brother is always here and watching it for 2 or more hours at a time with nothing better to do. In my opinion he could clean up his hoarder's paradise of a room for once but hey he doesn't even know it looks like that. The boxes of clothes, etc. are all strewn about the hallway when they should be in that room instead of all the garbage he keeps in there. I can't even invite ppl here cause he has messes like that downstairs as well (in a big pile and such), and the driveway...OMG.

He doesn't even know I* know it looks like that and apparently he doesn't see anything wrong with it. I have had the show "Hoarders" on here at times, and he says nothing when I say out loud things like "Oh my God, how disgusting. Who could live like that?" etc.

Your friend has crude manners. I am sure she won't get another invitation next time.

Apparently manners were something that her parents forgot to enforce upon her. That it quite rude. At the table? I would have said something to her about that.

What is there to regret? You just learned that to know someone, you merely need to live with them. This person who joined you is not your cup of tea when it comes to manners. I suppose the best lesson learned is that you are your own best company. You had a fabulous weekend that was filled with learning experiences that will stay with you for a lifetime.

Well, when you invite someone over for lunch/dinner I don't necessarily think it's rude to go ahead and put a plate together, unless she was getting into food that wasn't part of the meal. Then you make sure you ask. Taking shoes off is something that varies from person to person and house to house. Some people insist you take off your shoes, and some people don't care. If you don't want her wearing the shoes around, just politely ask her to take them off. The nose picking thing is gross, and totally inappropriate for any situation. As far as her getting bored, if you didn't have the time to spend with the friend, you shouldn't have invited them. I can tell you from experience that it sucks to go spend time with a friend and then have them be to busy to spend time with you.

Fine friend you have got there! Is it the first time that you have been observing her that closely? I don't mind her serving herself or even not removing her shoes but picking her nose Ugh. I simply hate anyone doing it!

Ricki, what happened? You have a different account with 17 behind your name. Anyway, you invited your friend over. She had to think it was okay. I would probably ask if it was okay to make a sandwich or whatever if it were me. However, when I go to my friend Wendy's house.. I just make myself at home and open the fridge... so does my daughter... and so does she at my house. That's just the way we are. Oh and at my friend's house we all take off our shoes... it's because they have light carpet. We will be taking our shoes off in our new house too to keep the floors clean. Ewwww! Picking her nose at the table... she can go to the bathroom for that.

Such people lack a civilized way of living and are slowly chucked out of near and dear ones life.It is really hard to gel along with ill-mannered friends,you cannot teach them and make them understand a better and cultured living but the best thing is maintain a distance.
