We all want to be good people right? You want to be hospitable and welcome people into your home and share with them your good spirits and drinkable spirits. But some people just lack simple manners and common decency. And they have to get out! No matter how calm and kind you are as a person and host there is always going to be those few people who were clearly raised without respect for others and you have to treat them like a vampire, and don't invite them pass the threshold.
Redditor u/nl1004 wanted scorned people to share some things about their home visitors of the past asking... What's the rudest thing a guest has ever done in your home?
50- Beanies 4Ever!Giphy
One of my friends in kindergarten wanted a beanie baby I had and when I told her she couldn't have it, she took it away from me and tried to flush it down the toilet. Then, when the toilet started overflowing and my mom came in, she started crying and said I did it.
We did not stay friends. tinymoonprincess
49- TV killed the radio star!
They broke our one TV and didn't pay for a replacement. My family has always been dirt poor and my mom busted her butt to buy that crappy tube TV, too. TommF
A girl poured an entire bottle of whiskey out on the counter on purpose at one of the parties my roommates threw in college. That or leaving half empty "shotgunned" cans all over the damn place. What a waste. REDDIT
47- Hit and Run
He wasn't really a guest, per se, but when I was 12, my parents were remodeling our home using a one-man construction company. We had two indoor-only cats (one was mine, the other was my brother's), and the contractor didn't approve of this. He thought cats should only be outside, so he left doors open all the time, and wouldn't bother to try to keep them inside while working.
I came home from school one day and couldn't find the cat that was mine. After searching the house, my dad and I went door-to-door in our neighborhood with her picture. One of our neighbors had found her - hit by a car and dead - and had taken her to the dump with his household trash. At least I have the closure of knowing what happened to her, though. fearthainne
46- But do you Floss?Giphy
Parents stayed at our place for the weekend and ended up leaving Monday morning after wife and I had gone to work.
Got a text from my dad that I would want to buy a new toothbrush because he "had some extra time and wanted to help clean kitchen" and that my stand mixer wasn't dirty anymore.
Wasn't my toothbrush.
Wife doesn't want them to visit anymore (honestly me either). gatesbe
45- Break like tissues...
Left tissue papers all over and inside the couch, and on the coffee table. These tissue papers are those that were sneezed on - wet. Plus, putting her feet on the coffee table where I put my glass of water and food on. But yeah, I had to tell her off to pick those tissue papers and get them into a bin asap every time she comes over. Havocka
44- Porn is Free!
Had out of state in-laws stay with us for a weekend they brought a old family friend no big deal. Three weeks later we learned he ordered three different pornos totaling almost 70 bucks. He was "sleeping" on the couch there were at least 6 kids under ten that could have walked in on him to get to the kitchen or bathroom. To make everything just a little more creepy the pornos he ordered were the same body type I have so it was a running joke for years that he was imaging me.monkeyballs7548
43- Just the "V"
Took a shower and pulled my shower curtain rod so hard it bent into a "V".... but never said a word to me or my (then) fiancè, his own brother. We all left at the same time in the morning, I found it once I got home from work. Yeah, I was pissed! BelatedUnicorn
42- Nair, Nair... that's Fair!
A friend of mine was over in middle school and found out we had WiFi. He immediately asked for the password and went straight into he bathroom with his iPod touch. He proceeded to masturbate with my sister's Nair. meowmix686
41- Hide the Evidence!
Not me but my SIL. A guest, who had a TP avoidance issue, used her bathmat to wipe his butt and threw it in the under sink cabinet. dreaming_of_beaches
40- Poo Happens!
So we had our wedding in my in law's home to save on money. Needless to say, there was a lot of drinking going on during the after party and one of my wife's bridesmaids got just TRASHED.
Long story short, we found her bridesmaids dress covered in puke in our shower and on the main stair way (wooden thank god) she left a HUGE poo. Just like in the middle of the staircase. Two of my groomsmen got it cleaned up before my mother-in-law even noticed though. Babakins
39- Death to you!
Purposely kicked my cat off the bed. misery-hates-company
38- Stand Down.
Literally called my husband ugly to his face, in his own home.
I almost picked her up and threw her out, but I definitely can't lift 300 pounds. suddenlyfabulous
37- The Trade War...Giphy
My wife's sister was traveling through the area where we live on a cross-country trip. My wife hadn't seen her in 10 years, (and hasn't seen her since, this was 8 years ago). She gets a hotel a few miles from our house, updates her facebook, and doesn't call. My wife has to basically guilt her into meeting us somewhere or stopping by.
She decided to stop by, and she brought her tiny loud dog with her. It pooped all over the house while we briefly visited (less than an hour). She didn't offer to help clean it up. I've been married to my wife for 15 years, and it remains the only time I've ever met that sister. Seems like a decent trade. vadosezo
36- Hands Off Lady!
Girlfriend of a roommate stayed the night frequently so maybe she started feeling like it was her place too, bless her heart. I have a lot of kitchen equipment and I do not mind sharing as long as people clean it and keep it nice, so almost everything in the kitchen was mine.
Anyway, this woman took it upon herself to rearrange things in my kitchen, including my stuff. I couldn't find anything in my own damn kitchen! I told her to move it all back exactly like it was before she screwed it up or her boyfriend would have to buy all his own kitchen stuff. iputthehoinhomo
35- Training Day....
Neighborhood friend that I knew for years (we went to high school and middle school together) had recently adopted a puppy. Her parents are notoriously awful - the kind that would rather not deal with issues or put in any sort of effort into anything. This cavalier attitude translated to their parenting, and subsequently, their dog training. One day my friend came over my house to introduce her dog to my little sister and I.
At this point in time I and the girl are about 14, little sister is 11. While my friend and i were talking, the dog poops on my floor. Not a big deal, we have dogs too! There's just one issue: the girl won't clean it up. I informed her that as this is her dog, she should clean up HER dogs poop. She giggles, looks around and through laughter says "no way I'm not cleaning up dog poop." So I ended up kicking the girl out of my house and while I informed my friend that there are indeed such things as social norms/etiquette, my little sister cleaned up the poop. The lack of awareness and overall maturity still blows my mind to this day. superrach
34- Just Yuck!
During a party at our house, a classmate who liked to get trashed in no time got wasted, made a vomit mess in the first floor bathroom, stays there for hours passed out. Then he decided "boi this bathroom is messed up and smells awful!" proceeds to do the same with our 2nd floor bathroom. Cancelled the whole party because of it.
My roomie was pissed but hey it's late imma get some sleep. Turns on his room light and the vomit fool is sleeping there, with an unhealthy puddle of puke covering the sheets. friedmanni
33- Dogs & Women First!
A Christian missionary and his wife were invited to our home as a guest of my partner; he'd known them in grade school. The husband kicked my dog when he was scared by the fireworks so barked during the story he was telling about being in Africa helping kids.
What a juxtaposition of morals! We immediately told them to leave. They acted very confused about it. Gimmemyspoon
32- Sharing is Caring...
My roommate had a buddy over to hang at our apartment. dude shows up with a 30-rack of PBR, then proceeds to drink the entire thing, vehemently refusing to share. he blacked out and pissed on our television. i punched him in the face and told him to kick rocks. phluff__head
31- Looking for Something?
A friend went through all my drawers in my bedroom looking for whatever the hell they wanted. Moundfreek
30- POKEMAN for Life!
A family friend's son found my sister's gameboy and started a new game on her Pokemon Crystal and saved, deleting her old file. Kid was old enough to know that it's rude to play someone else's gameboy without asking. I remember her being really upset, Pokemon is no joke when you're young. RigelGuy
Stole my dads methadone for chronic pain. My dad was hospitalized until his script was refilled. This was an older "friend" that i thought was cool. Luckily his butt got arrested. I felt so guilty bringing that pos into my home. SaronGas
28- Party people...
They invited other people over without asking if we were okay with it.
It wasn't even like we were having a party or anything it was just me my girlfriend and her friend hanging out. Then the doorbell rang and she was like, "Oh, that's _____, _____, and _____. I told them to come over." It was late and definitely was not okay with having more people come over. -eDgAR-
27- 7? Ants?Giphy
My cousin's boyfriend walked over to my ant farm and shook it. I was 7 and devastated. shannydoots
26- Punch 1-2!
Everyone has a story from their childhood that still pisses them off, this is mine. I was five years old and my snotty older cousin was over at our house. I had just gotten a copy of Mike Tyson's Punch out for my birthday. He was getting his butt kicked by king hippo and he got so angry he rage quit. But he didn't just rage quit, he ripped the cartridge out of the Nintendo and spit into it. Then he threw it across the room and stormed out.
I told my parents what happened and they told his parents and they made him apologize, but the game was ruined. It would kind of play, but would freeze up all the time. My family barely had enough money to get me the game for my birthday never mind buying it again. I was sure I would never be able to play it again.
Then for Christmas this little fool got Mike Tyson's Punch Out. So my older brother went over to his house and switched our ruined cartridge with his. It was awesome. Jombafomb
25- Remember the DNA....
I once had a "roommate" move in on a Sunday or Monday, say he'd pay for the room on Friday. Seemed reasonable enough - what is he going to do - refuse to pay? He was renting theoretically for the rest of the summer (like 2-3 months), so that seemed unlikely.
He seemed like kind of a shy, weird guy, but didn't seem too bad. This was probably like, 10-15 years ago when I was in college. Doesn't leave the room AT ALL as far as me or anyone else can tell. We even had a small gathering of people and invited him to join us. No dice.
Friday comes along and he rushes out of the house and into a car (I think with his mother?) Never heard from him again.
We go into the room, and we found a cup in the closet. That he had peed in.
I will never forget you, pees in cups guy. I don't remember your name, I barely remember what you look like, but I'll always remember you peed in a cup, and left it in the closet. WillBackUpWithSource
24- Don't be a Taker!
One time a younger guest went on my parents iPad and bought around $70-$80 worth of in app transactions. They were young but the response after getting caught was along the lines of "The guest should be given nice things." They were young so maybe they didn't know better. Mister-Venn
23- Such a Whacker!
I had a friend over one time when I was about eleven. We were both on our Nintendo DS's and he said "I'll be right back." After waiting forever I heard what I thought was a weedwhacker engine outside. I looked out the window and saw that he had gone into my garage and was riding around my small motor scooter. I was so bothered, I didn't know this kid well at all and he'd only been over one time previously. t-r-o-w-a-y
22- Was he a Mutant Ninja?Giphy
Some neighborhood kid who was a friend of my little brother came to the house, when he left I found a poop-smear on the side of our bathtub. His nickname was "turtle"...from then on, we called him "turd-L" (never said we were creative). dkpoomp
21- Life Long Drama!
When I was much younger, my mom's aunt came and visited and brought her dog. We didn't see her too much, but she was close with my mom back when Mom was a kid. During the visit, the dog dropped a loaf on the living room carpet. Not a big deal you would think, but my my mom had the audacity to ask her to clean up after her own dog.
Apparently, this was a degree of rudeness my aunt had never experienced before from a "host." The offense was so deep that she never spoke to my mother for. The. Rest. Of. Her. Life.
She moved across the country and the only time we ever heard from her again was when I got a letter from her saying that I should get some genetic tests for something that might be in the family.
Final plot twist: Since she never married and I was the only male descendant in her family line so she left me everything in her will. Vulpinand
20- No Blood Necessary....
Punch a brick wall and smear their blood all over the garage door. At least, that's one of them. I let my sister live with me for a year and every second of it was a waking nightmare. -spookyxghost-
19- Bring some Tide!
Puked in our washing machine and didn't tell anyone. Found it a couple days later when we went to do laundry. hii_petra
18- Just laugh...
Had a couple over for dinner. Friends of ours. My wife was pregnant at the time.
Cat pooped in litter box in the basement. Buddy's wife told me to change the litter saying it was due to my wife being pregnant. I said I would after the board game we were playing was over as nobody could smell it.
She said "BUT YOUR WIFE IS PREGNANT."
I said: "So?"
She proceeds to empty her water cup across the table in my direction. It literally went over my shoulder and completely missed me.
I'm stunned briefly at how unbelievably rude she is. Then begin to laugh my butt off that she missed me with a full cup of water point blank.
I end the game, tell them to go home.
She says "we should do it again some time."
No you rude woman. I put up with you because your husband is my good friend.
Wife and I close the door behind them after they leave , look into each other's eyes in silence for a few moments then laugh our butts off again at what the hell just happened. SonicBroom51
17- Hold Your Pee...
College housemate had a drunken hookup. She flipped out on him when she realized he had a physical disability. He was born with one fully formed hand and one partial hand. She stormed out of his room, but before leaving the house, she confused our closet under the stairs with a bathroom and pissed all over the floor, and the boxes of Christmas stuff in there. We got the story out of our housemate a few weeks later when putting up the Christmas tree and trying to figure out why the hell it smelled like pee. kjohtx
16-Be careful when you're that regular!Giphy
I was around 10 and a few of our neighbors were over swimming. One of the girls, a year younger than me, went to the bathroom and I went right after. She had pooped all over the toilet seat and didn't even try to clean it. It wasn't just a little, it was everywhere and let me tell you that girl needed more fiber in her diet. Her mom ended up yelling at her and making her clean it up. Christian_Baal
15-That's a lot of thickness!
Let a neighbor lady come over with her two young daughters to use our shower because her slacker husband hadn't paid the water bill. Went upstairs to the bathroom after they left, the bathtub was clogged with pubic hair. All over.... the sides of the tub, bottom of the shower curtain, everywhere. Apparently she decided to change her hairstyle from 1970s' Hustler to Y2KPenthouse. ChrissyStepfordwife
14-I'll cut you!
My ex-wife's sister used a $150 chef's knife to try and crack open a coconut in my kitchen. She dented it all over and also bent the tip somehow. She then said it must be a cheap knife because her sister in Thailand cuts them open super easy with a cleaver. It's one bright side of divorce that I never have to suffer her presence ever again. multivac7223
13-A parting treat.
Once, a friend was sleeping on my boyfriend's couch after a night of drinking. We woke up the next morning, and the only bathroom was locked from the inside - no answer. I just KNEW he was dead. After quite some time, we were able to jimmy something that could unlock the door, only to find the bathroom empty and no friend. He had filled up the little bathroom trashcan with diarrhea and fled in the night. hyperorbit
12-How 'Pulp Fiction' of you!Giphy
Threw a party. Random guy shows up claiming he's a friend of one of the invited guests (who didn't end up coming to the party). He proceeds to do a bunch of drugs that he brought as no one else there was into it and pulls a knife on my friend. I tell him he needs to leave, he points the knife to me, everyone surrounds him, he leaves. I don't remember his name but he was the worst guest I've ever had and hopefully will ever have over. cbrewdrummer
11-Time to shake up tradition!
My in-laws hated me. We invited them over for thanksgiving dinner and, upon arrival, they asked me to leave and come back a few hours later because they wanted to "follow their tradition of preparing the meal alone as a family." They are now my ex-in-laws. They had very poor social skills and anxiety which was a big part of this. They definitely meant to throw shade, but they didn't anticipate it being a showstopper. My tactic was to sit them down and flatly tell them they could stay for the dinner as we planned it or they were free to go do dinner their way at their house. I think they chose the latter that time. They did the same when they said they'd only come to Christmas if no one exchanged gifts in their presence, lol. Arboretum7
Happened to me in the 3rd grade, my mom's friend's son stole my holographic hockey cards. I didn't even notice until the next day when I saw him on the bus showing the cards he stole from me to his friends.
I did get my cards back along with a pretty nice bouncy ball. I'll post pictures of the cards after work!
I also remembered another story that happened a year ago at my parent's house warming party. One of the guests asked if the flooring was real hard wood or laminate then proceeded to test it out by taking out their key and scratching the floor. It was hard wood and it left a scratch, who the f**k does such a thing? EXOQ
9-You and Bobby are out!
I shared a house with a few friends, and one of them let a broke friend crash in a large closet we had. A couple days turned into weeks and then into months, and it all came to a head one day when I got home from working construction in the middle of winter.
I was literally caked in mud and shivering and when I walked in the front door I could hear the shower running and closet guy was sitting on the couch in a bathrobe. I asked him who was in the shower as I was dripping mud on the floor and he replied "Bobby. And I'm next."
He was not next. Garfield-1-23-23
8-Do not Flush!
Had some relatives over, and despite very, very clear instructions to not flush feminine products down the toilet, they did anyways. Destroyed our septic field, almost $10000 in damages overall. When confronted, they just denied it, despite the fact that the 32 pads that where pulled out of the system matches the brand that they had while they were over. Flimflomzimzoom
7-You got bigger issues than bad manors!
Had some friends over and one of my buddies went to the bathroom. When I walked in I heard something rattling. He was stealing Vicodin that my wife got the day before from getting a root canal, and still needed.
That bathroom was off the kitchen. He didn't here me come in the house and had the door to the bathroom cracked slightly so I looked in when I heard the rattling. No I don't just walk into the bathroom. At the same time most of my guy friends just slightly shut the door in even that when they're taking a leak. Our group of friends have been friends now for around 30 some odd years so we all probably too close. Psilologist
6- Fork YouGiphy
Stole my forks. Such an odd thing to take from someone but they stole them. They weren't even fancy ones. Literally cheap forks you buy at Walmart. Like the ones that are like 4 for a couple bucks.
5- I Dyed
Dyed her hair red in our bathroom sink - staining the brand new granite countertop, then dripped onto the new tile floor, then dripped onto the hardwood floor in the hallway, and ultimately slept in our guest bed with wet, freshly dyed red hair - staining the sheets and pillowcase.
Jesus, this is unfathomable to me. I've been a long-term guest before-- I was just slightly homeless at one point. I had dyed hair, and the color was in these reusable tubs, so it cost me nothing to maintain it, I just had to have a place to do it. Was so, so worried about not making a mess of my hosts' place. I got on my hands and knees and scrubbed the bottom of the shower with a magic eraser to clean off the small amount of residue that was left, before I even left the bathroom.
Did accidentally leave a spot on the counter later on down the line, despite covering the area in newspaper and stuff-- and I tried remedies until it was clean over several weeks. Also put one of my T shirts over their pillows until I was sure I'd have no bleed.
I was so paranoid about ruining their things, it just hurts my brain to know people do the same or more of a mess and don't even care.
4- Don't Mess With Someone's Pets
Back when I was younger around 12 or 13, I remember my parents had another couple over that they had known for a short period of time. They brought their husky over to the house but we had a dog of our that simply didnt get along well with other animals. This "friendly" couple had the audacity to demand that we put our dog in his kennel so that their dog could come on. Needless to say, they didn't stay for dinner that day nor did I ever see them again.
I was a kid probably 9 or 10 and my mom had a friend and her son over for lunch. The kid disappeared for about 10 minutes, and at the time I thought he had gone to the bathroom cause i really had to go. So when he came back I quickly manuevered my way past him into the room before the bathroom, where we had a fishtank. This would be completely irrelevant if the fishtank wasnt cloudy and swirling about. At first glance I didnt know what it was untill I noticed smashed and ripped apart pieces of little fish faces moving around in the swirl. The kid reached into the fishtank amd squeezed the ever loving life out of every single fish in that tank.
My husband let a former coworker crash on the couch because he had been drinking and we didn't want him to drive. Woke up the next morning and he had stolen our computer, a cell phone, a little bit of cash, and our cigarettes. Turns out he had a drug problem. We got our computer back.
2- You Want A Pizza Me
We had a bunch of pizza in the fridge we'd ordered the night before they arrived. There were three other families already there, so we had ordered a lot and there were many much leftovers, and everyone who was there at the time had pitched in to pay. The one family who hadn't been there for pizza arrived the morning after and were talking about going out to eat. The families were all okay with this, thinking it'd be great to have lunch in individual families and get back together for dinner. Everyone was loading up, including the most recent arrival family, but when we drove off, they unloaded, went back inside and ate all the pizza.
We would've told them it was fine if they had said, yo, could we eat that pizza for lunch, but pretending they were going someplace and then sneaking back inside and eating it was so shady.
- They aren't poor, just really cheap.
- This was my uncle and his family.
- This was at my grandma's house. She had just passed and everyone was getting together for the funeral. My mom was basically in charge, and, since I'm the oldest grandchild at 24, I was heavily involved as well.
- We locked the door, but every family had a key.
- We did not confront them. It isn't worth it to get into it with them when we barely see them anyway. I think my mom would prefer to build a stronger bond with him and his family, since he is her little brother.
1- The Force
My son (from the age of 5-12 years old) had built every Star Wars LEGO ship together, minus the falcon which was to be our next set to build. We even had our own LEGO lingo, he'd say mom, I need a twoer by fourer or a oner.... so on. This was our thing to do, as he has a twin sister so it was important that I spend quality time with each of them, doing things they each loved to do.
I had invited a friend over who brought her son (we will call him master destroyer,MD). MD is known to be a trouble maker, his father passed away and mommy lets him get away with whatever he wants or does. He was upstairs playing legos with our son while I visited with the mom (my mistake) when next thing I know, son comes down visibly upset, only for us to find out, MD had picked up every single LEGO Star Wars set we had ever built together and smashed them on the ground. Friend made MD apologize and they left right after. Our son never touched a LEGO again after that.
It wasn't just the destruction of the legos, but this kid (MD) ruined "our thing" that brought my son and I together. I still talk to the friend but have kindly told her that her son isn't welcomed over, even though it's been almost 5 years since this occurred, his behavior hasn't changed nor has the discipline the mom lacks. I refuse to let him take anything else away from my son that he holds dear to him.
I have set the legos aside, along with all of the instructions, in hope that one day when he is a father, he will crack open the tubs of legos and have a connection with his kid(s) as we once had.
