Opening your home to loved ones and friends for a time is always the generous, right thing to do, especially when people are in particular need. But that charity needs to come with some rules and responsibility. When people start to get crazy, it's time for people to go. Your home is not an insane asylum and you are not a doormat. Rude is rude. And you don't need that mess.
Redditor u/lickmyfeet14 wanted to hear about some bad behavior among home invaders that were originally invited by asking.... What was the rudest thing a visitor did in your house?
My MIL likes to volunteer to show new guests around during big events like birthdays or Christmas.
And without fail she will find the worst part of my home, usually whatever room has a closed door that's out of the way, and will make them stand in there and have a conversation. You know; the bedroom that's a mess because you threw everything in it. The back room of the basement past the laundry room used for disorganized storage.
It only took 8 years for my husband to catch on that yeah, it happens every time.
It's not the worst she's done but it is the most head-scratchingly petty. Ladyughsalot1
Weed on White.
A friend of mine brought his trashy girlfriend over and she pulls out a weed pipe and takes a hit and then turns the pipe over and smacks the ash out onto my new white carpet. I asked them both to leave and never saw her again. ElvenDeGeneres
Lived in a house with 2 people at uni a couple of years ago (didn't know them before I moved in with them). One of them invited 2 of her friends to come and stay with us. Went to go and use our shared bathroom and there were about 3 used sanitary pads casually left open draped on our sink, despite the fact that we had a bin in the bathroom for them. Cleaned it up once and went back in the next morning and there were more. Never been so disgusted in my life. jacksonliz7991jacksonliz7991
Out of Towners...
They were housesitting for my family while we were out of town. We let them stay at our house and sleep in my parent's room.
When we returned home, our house was a disaster. The kitchen was filthy, and their daughter's toys were scattered all over the house. One of their few tasks was to water our plants. They were all dead when we came home.
Worst of all, they were told not to come into my room, where I have a valuable collection of old toys. Of course, they let their daughter into my room and play with them. Some stuff was damaged.
That was the last time we let them watch the house. Next time we went out of town a good friend of mine was given the job instead. She did a much better job. Star_glow
We're not friends anymore.Giphy
Peed in my cat's litter box at a party we had. Turned the whole box into one solid chunk. It was a friend of mine actually. He was really drunk but I'm sure he did it on purpose. Didn't notice either until our cats pooped or peed elsewhere in the house. We're not friends anymore. Boardallday
No Good Deed.
A friend of my dad lost his house, and we had a former B&B so we invited them to stay with us. We housed and fed them for weeks while the found another place. For that, we got roaches, criticisms of our food (my dad was the executive chef at a freaking country club and was a damned fine cook), but that wasn't the worst for me, then in my late teens.
The day they left, I went to play my favorite game on PlayStation: Sled Storm. Couldn't find it. Over turned freaking everything, but I couldn't find it. In searching, I noticed something even worse. My SNES, all games, and half my N64 games were missing in addition to Sled Storm. They had stayed with us as a favor and stolen half my shit that I had paid for with birthday money saved up over years. Forget those people. fghth6
Had a friend who had horribly stanky athelete's foot feet from using the showers at the dorms without shower shoes. All of the skin on his soles and between his toes was gone. His feet were raw, red and shiny with new, thin skin. I invited him over to watch movies. It was me and like 5 other guys. We watched horror movies, drank beers and ate snacks. At some point, he took his shoes off. None of us said anything, but the smell permeated the entire five room apartment (living room, kitchen, two bedrooms, bathroom and laundry room) within mere minutes.
It was very quiet. We gave the couch to him completely by himself. No great loss, the thing was from the 70's and that old scratchy Herculon fabric (important point). Around 2AM my girlfriend showed up and ordered my friend to put his shoes back on. The smell was in the house two days later. I sniffed around after two days of airing out and Febreze and candles did nothing. I smelled the couch cushions. He had rubbed his feet into the fabric of at least two cushions. I guess the scratchy fabric felt really awesome on his feet that were on fire with the itch. notoneofyourfans
Y'all Stupid or Crazy?!
My sister's friends went into the back of my apartment while i was throwing a party there and as they went i saw them get some tin foil out. I live in a druggie area and know exactly what that means so I marched right after them and told them that that's not happening under my roof or anywhere in the apartment block (there's only 4 in my building and a family with kids lives downstairs). They understood but left shortly after all butthurt. It is insane to me that they thought I would just be ok with them smoking meth INDOORS in my apartment. Without asking as well! mister_thang

I used to have band practice once a week at my house. And every week the lead singer would clog the toilet. Every. Single. Time. Gumbybum
Came to visit for a few days with her infant and placenta. The placenta was wrapped in butcher paper, but nothing waterproof and was half thawed from a long car drive. She put it in my freezer where it oozed all over my food. ductoid
A guy we didn't know very well, a friend of a friend, came over to our house for dinner one night. He got quite drunk, despite not knowing him very well we offered that he stay the night at our place instead of driving home drunk. He refused, drove drunk and crashed his car. Then he tried to sue us for letting him drive home drunk. The guy was an fool. wefedfd
This kids who was a friend at the time came over for a birthday party. We were around 13 and he ate a strawberry, except the top of it.
Then he SMUSHED it into our white carpet and left it there. We were watching, like he just did it like it was a normal act.
My parents still call him strawberry boy. KatrinaGazette
My brother's girlfriend had made a Xmas wreath for my home. When she arrived she took the wreath I had on my door and threw it down the hallway and put one up that she had made (which was seriously ugly by the way) My jaw dropped I seriously could not believe she threw MY wreath down the hallway right in front of me! The following day I threw HER wreath in the garbage. Walk-with-a-cane
I don't remember who the guy was because it happened when I was a kid but there was this guy who was in his early 20s, he was in the kitchen with one of the kitchen knifes and just throwing it into the floor so it would get stuck and pulling it out and doing it again. UhhYawn
My grandfather's cousin was staying with us a for a week; he has a bladder problem and would refuse to wear adult diapers! What followed was him leaving a trail of pee (sometimes poo), when he walked around the house... didn't take too long for my mother to ask his son to take him back home. queenjany
My son's girlfriend was having family problems and temporality lived with us. Son/GF were 17 at the time. She had no house manners whatsoever... she'd cook herself meals and leave food and dishes everywhere, expecting us to clean after her. Leave her dirty clothes and stuff all over the house. She once borrowed my car without asking. Got so tired of it we asked her to leave. Eyeletblack
My mom used to reorganize my kitchen cabinets whenever she would visit because she disagreed with my organizational system. Thedaythemusicdied37
My mom does this with our household. She'll come over, remark that the house needs to be cleaned a bit and she'll just start cleaning. It's such an degrading experience. And it's not like my house is disgusting. If we've hovered the day before she'll remark that it's probably been a long time since we've done that and get the hoover out. She doesn't listen when I ask her to stop so we've stopped inviting her over as much in order to avoid the stress. Just_Me_2218
That booze was MINE!
Drank all of my booze without asking my permission. These were guests of my roommates, and I was already asleep at the time because I basically had 14-hour days for a job I hated at the time (10 hour shift + 2 hour commute each way), and was still broke as crap. That booze was MINE, and those fools drank it all like they owned the damn place. Never even offered to replace it, either. PianoManGidley
My 3rd grade "friend" tried to set my shower curtains on fire for no reason. dummyplant
