While I was renting my apartment, I'd get a few UNEXPECTED, UNINVITED, UN-WELCOMED guests during the holidays. Now that I own my own home, the ABUSE is relentless!
A week before Christmas, a couple with their 5 kids arrived totally UNEXPECTED AND UNINVITED. They were just passing through, on their way to Ruidoso. Well, out of the blue, she informed me that they would be spending the night and would leave the following morning. My skin crawled but managed to give a sweet smile. They stayed 4 days. She had 1 husband, 3 teens and to babies, 1 and 2. They made themselves very much at home. The mother would give the 1 and 2 year old milk in regular cups. I couldn't keep up mopping up my hardwood floors from the accidental spills. One time, I decided to warm up a cup of milk for myself and the mother showed great concern about my leaving milk for her kids. By and by, it was MY milk that I paid for. And how they loved taking showers! Every time I'd enter my bathroom, I find the electric heater ON and my towels strewn all over the floor. How I will cry when my electric and water bill comes in. Why do people I don't care about, continue to infringe on my good nature?
On the 3rd and 4th day I started asking when they were leaving. I got no answer. I kept telling them that I had INVITED my 4 brothers and their girlfriends from California, Arizona, and San Antonio to stay with me for the holidays. Mickey, Jewely and I jumped up and down for joy when they finally they left. Mickey and Jewely, my 2 toy poodles, who are the APPLE OF MY EYE, were nervous and upset with all the noise they created.
Then a cousin called me a couple of days ago, letting me know that they had all decided to have a New Years party at MY HOUSE! I said OH! okay. I'm such a WIMP. Well, I managed to get out of this predicament by miraculously catching a terrible cold. I'm sneezing, coughing, my nose is raw red, but I'M HAPPIER THAN HELL, cause this was the perfect excuse for getting me out of an unwanted predicament.
Has anyone experienced UNWANTED OVERNIGHT GUESTS that stay and stay and STAY!!?? I feel used and abused!
