I could TOTALLY see my SO doing this to me, and I would have your exact same reaction. You aren’t overreacting. This was waaaaaay out of line.

What? My DH would never let some rando stay in the house while I was there alone. There is no way I would be remotely ok with this.

Wow! I would kill him too! Guys sometimes just don’t think and you should not be left alone with some strange man living in your house.

Yikes, definitely don’t think you’re being irrational! I would be very uncomfortable if a random guy was staying at my place while DH was gone.

I don’t think you did anything wrong. Would it be possible for you to get a friend to stay with you for those few days when he is working on the roof?

Whoa! My DH would never pull such a thing, because as far as he’s concerned, just about everyone in the world is out to harm everyone else. There is a loaded shotgun next to our bed, and I get in trouble if I don’t double-bolt the front door.

You definitely are right to be concerned about this!!!! His mom ‘vouching’ for the guy won’t do you much good afterwards if something happens.

Holey moley! Not okay, at all!! At this point, since you really need the work done, is there any way you can stay with your in-laws for those few days? I would be totally creeped out by having a stranger (especially a man) within my living quarters, even with my husband there. Without him home, this would not be an option. No way!

There would be death.

Also i was going to ask why MIL isn’t putting him up.

What? that’s insane for your DH to think that’s ok.  there is no way I would have some random guy stay essentially in my house while he knows I’m home alone.  That’s just asking for trouble.

Yeah, I wouldn’t be cool with this either.

Call the company he works for, and see if you can arrange some business expense paid lodging for him. Tell them you don’t feel comfortable with this and will take your business elsewhere if they aren’t accomodating to your needs.

Um…that would not fly with me. My husband would actually not want some total stranger staying in our house, especially when he is away. I would insist the man get a hotel room.

Kill him… and then your MIL.

I would be pissed too! It was pretty thoughtless of both of them, but it could work, don’t worry too much. Do you have siblings (big burly older brothers, preferrably), or friends nearby that can have a “sleepover” at your house while the guy is there? Keep the garage door and the side door locked with the deadbolt at all times!! He doesn’t need access indoors, does he?

EDIT: I like the idea of asking his company to pay for his lodging elsewhere. Much more convenient idea!
