I don’t want to!

I just got a call from a family member saying, “Guess what!?! We’re coming to visit July 16-26th!” Damn. These are the house guests you don’t want to be seen in public with, they don’t help cook or clean after themselves, and expect you to foot the bill for everything you do while they are visiting. Worse, we have nowhere for them to sleep at our house, and my parents are out of town for all except two days of their visit. As a result, they have to stay at my parent’s house, while they are not there. So, that means we have to sleep there too. They cannot be left in that house alone. Um…yeah…no. Things would sprout legs and walk off. I don’t want them to come! I guess I will have to figure out how to set some clear boundaries.

I feel like pitching a fit over the whole idea.

  1. Can you “have plans” for the latter half so that they cannot stay so long? 10 days is a helluva long visit!!!

  2. I’m going to see if I can get them to move the date. I’m not comfortable with being responsible for them in a house that isn’t mine to begin with. It sounds like it spells disaster!

  3. Wow! That’s a long visit. I feel for you!

  4. Ick. 10 days is too long. Make up something incredibly important and unchangeable.

  5. 🙂 That is ick! Can they maybe stay at your parents’ house even though they’re not home?

  6. I saw a sign at a friend’s vacation house years ago. It made me laugh, but it also kind of true. It said ‘Fish and visitors stink after 2 days.’

    I always think about that when I am staying somewhere, I never want to overstay my welcome.

  7. Where oh where did you get this cool SNAP thingy? Where do I find it and how do I use it?

  8. Forget it. I figured it out. 🙂

  9. Oh for the love–like you need more stress in your life. I’m assuming there’s no tactful way to say no…
