Please, I'm desperate.
Please give me your "Worst Houseguest" stories.
You see, I'm not sure if I am just expecting too much and I'd like to see what constitutes a bad guest in your mind.
I currently have a house guest. One that traveled thousands of miles to see me, and for that I was grateful. But this houseguest sits at the table while I serve her meals and on the sofa while I vacuum around her.
She is uninterested in seeing sites (having NEVER been to England before) unless they can be seen from the passenger seat of my car. England isn't constructed that way. Anything worth seeing must be walked up (or in) to.
So even though I purchased a membership to the English Heritage site (not cheap) so that I could take her to all of the places within 2 hours of our house, we will not be going to any of them.
Is that unreasonable? Should I use the gas and drag the kids to castles and priories an hour away just so that we can snap a quick picture of the outside and then drive back home?
Seriously, do you have any quirky or annoying family members-come-to-stay stories? Please? You can vent here, they don't read my blog.
