Who’s the worst guest you’ve had in your house and what did they do?

Everybody likes company for a bit, but there is always that one...lol

Oddly enough, I don't have any first hand stories about guests, but my niece told me one about my sister, (her aunt.) My sister, I'll call her Sally, was going through a rough patch and my niece invited her to stay with her until she sorted things out. So Sally came to stay for an undetermined amount of time. At first things went smoothly, but then Sally started complaining. Sally is very good at it. She didn't like my niece to play music too loud. She didn't like the smell of bacon cooking, because she had sworn off pork. She didn't like where her bed was and wanted to change it. After a huge blow out, Sally had to go.

I had a similar situation. Was trying to help out a couple that needed a place to live until they found their own place. We invited them in thinking "OK, a few weeks." Well, they were "saving" up while we were doing all the food and covering everything by scrimping. The day that broke my back was when I found out they had gone out to eat at a fancy place to "get out for a bit and relax." I pointed them to the "for rent" adds and gave them a week. There is a limit.

My Mom's oldest sister, Blanche. She was a school teacher for 70 years, and was very bossy. She was the kind of woman who would come into your home and rearrange your furniture. She'd also ask personal or impertinent questions without hesitation. My Mom put up with her for forty years

I really like my privacy, so guests have been few and far between. Back when my daughter was little, I sometimes had my niece and nephew up for a week or two in the summer, when they were thirteen and fourteen. Sometimes Mr. Garnet has a visit from his brother who lives in Scotland, and he is very easy to please; would even sleep on the floor if we didn't have a place for him to sleep.

A long time ago I used to manage bodybuilding gyms and health clubs. I had a little bit of celebrity back then, and threw my weight around. Some people just need to get tossed.
Exhibit A: Bully cops on cocaine and steroids.
Exhibit B: The guy that brings in his boom box and plays his satanic death metal.

A View a little bit behind the scenes. Our rep was.guys trying to get to the next level.
Football, Baseball. Powerlifting, .. Pro Wrestling,, Competitive Bodybuilding. At that time, it was The Crucible of greatness. It was a testosterone festival.
But when I would do the books, the bread and butter was middle age women . They paid the bills.

My grandads mum,my great grandma.She hated my grandma with a passion,even chopping down a door with an axe to kill her for practically nothing(gran escaped).I lived with my grandparents as a kid and great granny built an extension on their home to live in.She made grans life misery but never in front of grandad, so one day he pretended to go out and hid in the front room,the one time great gran didn't be nasty, so gran teased her a bit in silence and she blew a fuse,grandad came out and gave her the marching orders.We all celebrated that night.Everyone hated great gran,she was a total b----.Sorry for all the grans in this story,lol.

Just to add about great grandma,she drove her husband,my great grandad to gas himself to death in the oven,he was a top bloke.When I was born mum proudly showed me to her and the only remark was "I hate boys",which was kind of a lie as she would play up on her husband with the young American sailors when they docked in Sydney,lol.As a kid I always thought of her as a witch,not the Debi kind but the horrible type in Disney movies.Ironically she was found in a coma after leaving the gas cook top on unlit and lived for months in this state before passing.I do believe her soul was pure but the women it was in,well,lol.
