Sigh. We just discovered that the house guests who just crashed our place this weekend broke our sleeper sofa. Damn it! I already caught a cold from one of them who decided to show up sick, and DH spent all week/weekend with a huge work project and an even bigger distraction at home. He has been so tolerant, but now even I am ticked.
If we have to replace this thing it would have been cheaper to just pay for them to stay in a damn hotel, which they could easily have afforded. Leather sleeper sofas are like 900+ and since ours was a hand me down, the new one is likely going to be a crappier, cheaper one than we had!
I am really regretting answering my phone the other day and agreeing to host. I already refrained from mentioning that I caught her cold.
Do you ladies have stories of damage wrought by house guests $$$$, sanity or other?
I’m so PISSED!

For my first wedding, XH had his own apartment and we were going to stay there for the first time together on our wedding night. Well his loser GMs couldn’t afford a place and decided to crash at the apartment….along with his sister, her friend, my sister, her BF, and his cousins. There were literally 11 people in a 2 bedroom, 1 bath place. Not my idea of romance.
Before we got there, they emptied the fridge and filled it with beer….so all our food spoiled. One guy found XH’s truck key and took it to get food…this guy had a suspended license. They were smoking pot in our place….XH lived next to a federal agent.
Well, sometime in the middle of the night (while we were still partying) someone overflowed the toilet (flooded the bathroom) and didn’t clean it up. I went in, saw it, got livid, and everyone proceeded to watch me clean up the mess by myself.
The loser GMs actually asked if they could stay the next couple of nights even though we were leaving on our honeymoon. We told them “NO” and took them to a hotel. X-MIL actually said I needed to call them when we got back and apologize for how I was acting….because I was out of line!

Wow these stories are horrible. My bad houseguest stories are not nearly as bad as all this. :/ I was raised in thinking if someone has you stay over at their home, especially overnight or for multiple nights … you send a thank you note or at least bring a house gift (something small) for the host. O.O I guess that’s really outdated but personally I feel a tad annoyed if I spend days cleaning up and cooking for house guests who never even say thank you.

If you are ready to go with dowpayment, pre-approval then sure it can get done. I think our process took about 2 months, from putting an offer down, getting the approval for the mortgage and scheduling a settlement date.
