People Describe The Weirdest Thing A Guest Has Ever Done At Their House

I grew up in a household where it was customary to remove your shoes upon entering. To me, it made sense.

I assumed every family preferred not to have gum, spit, mud – and who knows what else – tracked into their homes from the outside.

So, as a high school kid, whenever I forgot to inform friends of the house-entrance protocol, and they walked onto the carpet with their shoes on, my mom would freak out. Hey, if they're not used to doing that in their own homes, I don't blame them for their ignorance.

But there are just some guests whose behavior indicated they did know better.

Curious to hear bizarre anecdotes from strangers online, Redditor alksjs asked:

"What's the weirdest thing a guest has done at your house?"

When alcohol and substances were brought into these homes, disaster struck.

Making A Splash

"Brought alcohol after we told them we don't drink/are a dry house.. ok, minor enough, didn't make a big deal about it... but when they spilled all their red wine on our couch and hid it under a blanket, only for the wife to tell us via text after they left.... that really sucked."


A Hot Mess

"Got a prostitute over. This was years ago when I lived in a share house. My room mate and a friend of his got drunk. My room mate eventually ended up going to bed and he told his friend to sleep on the couch rather than driving home."

"The next morning we woke up and discovered that he'd called up a prostitute. They had sex in the bathroom and left a godawful mess."

"It was a long time before he got invited over again."


Bathroom Paint Job

"My friend's new boyfriend - I'd never met him before - came over with her for dinner. There were 8 of us. He drank a lot. He went to the bathroom before dessert. About 5 minutes after he came back, he spoke to her and she said they needed to go as he wasn't feeling well. They left."

"When the next person went to the bathroom, they came back recoiling in horror. The new boyfriend had puked up his entire dinner - and a vast amount of red wine - all over the bathroom. Everywhere. Walls, floors, all over my full basket of spare toilet rolls."

I cleaned it up. When I next saw my friend, I mentioned it. We had a totally ordinary conversation about it. Later that day, she deleted me on FB and I never saw her again."



Makeshift Urinal

"I had a birthday party for my friend at my apartment at the time. Another friend's husband ended up getting drunk and peeing in my hallway. I was like, 'wtf?' 'Well, the bathroom was full and I couldn't make it to a bush in time.'"

"So, the next time he came over, I gifted him a small potted plant with a handmade 'mens room' sign. Told him that now he has his own porta potty."


Snot-Rag Fashion

"This one chick I used to be kinda friends with in middle school came over to my house. We were just sitting on my living room couch watching TV, when she just suddenly out of nowhere lifted the bottom of her shirt up and started blowing her nose into it. She did this like three or four times. I was like, c'mon now, we have tissues in the house and it didn't even occur to you to even ask for one? We're not anti-tissue extremists or anything. The image of that giant snot splotch all over the front of her shirt is seared into my retinas until the end of my days."

Science is science. Fact is fact. Truth is truth and simple is simple. These are things we must now attest to in 2021. Can we please all get onboard with wha...

Please Don't Make Yourself At Home

Some guests act like they own the place. They need to be shown the door, by force, if necessary.

Sleep Requirement

"Rearranged all the furniture in the guest bedroom so that she could sleep facing north."


The Brown Stains

"My weird neighbour friend once came over for dinner when we were at least 11. I don't know why or how but when I prepared to go to bed that night I discovered poop on the wall at the top-bunk mattress (slept bottom). We also found it smeared on the wall of behind our TV."

"When we asked his mother she just handled it as if it was a totally normal thing to do."


Laundry Time

"My roommate in college had been dating a guy a few years older for several months. She asked if I minded if he spent the weekend and that they'd only be home in the evenings since they had planned to be out and about experiencing the city. I said sure. Guy shows up and he's conversational and nice enough, except instead of an overnight bag, he brings at least 10 huge filled to the brim laundry bags of dirty clothes. He immediately sets up shop in our laundry room and goes to town. Literally does laundry all day and night.

My roommate is visibly upset at this point because dude doesn't want to go hang out as planned. He just wants to watch movies and do laundry. She apologizes and says they'll be out all the next day. No big deal. She wakes me up the next morning and is hysterical. The guy is gone and has taken all of our cleaning supplies and snacks with him. She never heard from again. It was super creepy and bizarre. She prob didn't even know this guys real name and never found out what his end game was. Unless his end game was simply use of a full size washer and dryer."


Unsolicited Makeover

"While we were at work, a couple that were houseguests for a few days rearranged our furniture and artwork."

"They wanted to surprise us when we returned home with their 'excellent taste in decorating.' They sure did!"


The Airborne Pervy Boy

"My cousin use to come over my house alot when I was a teenager. We're 7 months apart so we were pretty close growing up. When we 14/15 years old, he came over once with my aunties friends weird/ annoying son that he was forced to hang out with from time to time. It was 10am and I still had my pj's on, I tell my cousin I'll get dressed real quick and we'll go down the bike tracks soon. I go to my bedroom to change, when I'm in my underwear the weird/annoying boy walks straight in my room like he lived there and looked me up and down with a smile. I went mental, screamed at him and called him a creep. My cousin bolts upstairs after hearing me scream, grabbed the boy by the scruff of his clothes, drags him out of my bedroom and threw him down the stairs, he wasn't seriously hurt but definitely terrified at this point and runs out of the house."


Weird Wanderer

"I had a friend over once and he just wandered around the house, no sitting, no greeting my mom, no nothing, he just walked around the house aimlessly, this was a year ago but it still confuses me to this day."


Missing The Target

"It was my cousin. He came in, took a sh*t in my bedroom (at the middle of the floor), and left. Im still wondering what came through his mind that day."


No Complaints

"Last summer, my parents went on vacation so I was left alone to care for the house and our cat. One of my friends would come over a lot because I always made good food and she wanted to try it. One time when she came over, we ended up having coffee late at night, so she decided to clean my kitchen and bathroom at 12AM. Cleaned the sink, toilet, stove... I didn't ask her to. It was weird. But I didn't mind it."


Pure Insanity

"Pissed in the fridge all over turkey left overs then b!tched the toilet wouldn't flush. His gf at the time then proceeded to beat the sh*t out of him for 'doing it again' with her prosthetic leg."

"Plot twist...I was the guest in their home."


This Is Your Brain On Drugs

"My homeless, heroin addict, ex brother in law asked if he could do some laundry at my place and I agreed that would be ok as long as he understood this is my home and he's not welcome to hang around. (I have a teenage son I'd rather not expose to heroin, thank you.) One day he texted that he needed to pick up his laundry and I said no problem.""

"He never showed up, so I went to bed around midnight. Turns out after I went to bed, he let himself and his insane girlfriend in and they made themselves at home. Watching TV, taking a shower, eating snacks."

"I woke up to the sounds of a domestic taking place in my living room and a woman screaming for help."

"After dealing with all that and getting them removed from my property, I went to my bathroom where I found the entire bathroom covered in purple hair dye. It was on the floors, sink, the toilet, the mirror, the rugs. Every where!"

"Who comes into a house uninvited after midnight and dyes their hair?!"

"Don't do heroin kids."


Jam Session

"This guy turned my pots and pans into drums and started freestyle singing while all the girls were hitting chairs and harmonising. I never wanted people to leave my place so quickly before."


As I mentioned earlier, having a clean home starts with taking off your shoes after entering.

Growing up with this regimen made me appreciate cleanliness, but it also made me a certifiable germophobe.

So you can imagine how much I cringed when I read about the number of Redditors who've had guests who made their homes an open bathroom space – where excrement, vomit and urine splattered everywhere like in a Jackson Pollock painting.

The takeway? Be mindful of your alcohol intake, who you invite, and say no to drugs. Now, there's the door.

People Break Down Which Historical Events Were Horrible But Overall Necessary

As we enter the third year of the global pandemic, with cases continuing to ebb and flow, it's hard not to look back on whether or not this could have been avoided, and what the world might be like today had Covid-19 not spread throughout the world.

With that in mind, one also can't help but wonder whether or not there will, in fact, be some good to come out of this.

Many people have pointed out how people will likely be more diligent with their hygiene, companies might re-examine the possibilities of working from home and disability, not to mention how much we value our friends and loved ones, after not being able to see them and hug them for months on end.

Begging the question, was the global pandemic one of the many necessary evils endured by the human race?

Redditor Appropriate-Cut8001 was curious to learn what horrific historical events people felt were, at the end of the day, necessary for multiple reasons, leading them to ask:

"What’s an event in history that everyone agrees was horrible but also agrees it was necessary?"

People Debate Which Kids Movies They Would Like To See The R-Rated Version Of
20th Century Fox

Those of you who have seen Home Alone – and honestly, who hasn't at this point – know that Kevin McCallister was sick in the head. I mean, he really went overboard, didn't he? His ideas were straight out of a horror film. He could have taught some tricks of the trade to Jigsaw, wouldn't you agree?

Next time you watch those films, consider why his awful parents didn't send his ass to a child psychologist.

But Home Alone isn't the only kids movie that would benefit from a more adult version. People shared their thoughts with us after Redditor Kevvv_Y asked the online community,

"If you could make one kids movie R rated which movie would you choose?"

Haven't we all wondered what we'd do if we had a billion dollars in the bank?

Of course we have. They say that "money can't buy happiness" but we all know that that's ridiculous. The truth is that having enough money would solve most of the average person's problems, especially when their problems typically revolve around making sure that they can pay all their bills on time and keep a roof over their heads.

People told us what they'd do if they could only be so lucky once Redditor Stef4nos asked the online community,

"You suddenly wake up a Billionaire. What do you do?"
