New Year's Resolution for 2011

Thursday, January 28, 2010

I have one already...

Not inviting anyone I don't know that well to stay with me. I did it and have learned from my mistake...this is something that will only happen ONCE.

I'm not sure why my overseas guest thought it was ok to stay with me for twelve days, five of which were at our beach house up the coast and then leave with just a

"thank you for having me, had a great time, bye".

No thank you gift, not even a thanks-for-the-free-accommodation card.

Am I being harsh? I think not. It's not like my guest paid for the majority of our dining out, and we ate out every night except one, where I had friends over for a bbq. I can go on, but it will just make me mad again and I feel as though I've been taken advantage of.

I will also add this...the morning of departure, guest put the sheets in the washing machine. Then the cab came. WHOOPEE. I was left to dry the sheets, wash the towels, tidy up the rest of the bedroom and then there was the bathroom. This really skeeved me out. I walked into the bathroom to find toothpaste on the vanity and...ready...NAIL CLIPPINGS IN THE SINK. Like guest was staying in a hotel.

WTF. I mean, I generously opened my home and this is what I got in return.

So I apologize in advance to anyone who is planning on visiting me in the future. I will be doing some due diligence before I agree to having anyone stay.
