Ok, let’s say you and your husband and 2 children have left for vacation. 4 weeks. Now let’s say the inlaws move in to your house. They get there after you leave and leave JUST before you come back. They were not there to house sit , they were supposed to be there for 4 days to check out your new pool.
Would this be ok with you???

Are the said parents from out of town? If they are, it seems wierd for them to come and not see the grandkids? Do you really need 4 days to check out a pool?
I find it a little wierd, but I really dont know the situation.

They live 6 hours away. They will not be seeing their grandkids because like I said, they plan to leave the day before the family get back from vacation.

@Just_Squeeze: That sounds a bit more like a vacation than pool maintenance. Could it be that their is tension between the two families?

That’s really odd… If my mom stayed in my house for almost a month when they weren’t supposed to I don’t think I’d be too upset as long as they kept the house neat and tidy. I would probably make them pay the electricity bill for that month though. My mom and step-dad are energy suckers! My mom is especially horrible because she keeps the AC on full blast all the time and has to have lights, the TV, and the computer going non-stop.

I agree with FloretteLiz, it seems really strange. Why don’t they stick around a couple extra days to spend time with you on your return? Maybe they’re planning a surprise party! I really don’t know…
To answer your question though, it wouldn’t bother me if MY ILs did this cause I love those people to death. They’re quirky but they have embraced me like theirown so my home is theirs any day. Perhaps they would like a holiday! On the other hand, if this relationship was not there I don’t think I would be nearly so inviting!

Uh, no. Just no. I’m a very private person and don’t like people poking around my home when I’m in it, let alone while I’m away on vacation. And without any notice or permission? Not okay.
