Hi All Hope y'all are doing good! I had a very strange weekend and I am here to vent. It all begins early Jan when one of my college mate who I met 5 years ago decided to call me up and inform me that he is coming to my town. Obviously I was happy as I thought it would be fun to meet someone from my past after so long. And reminiscence the golden college days. He tells me he is going to stay with me for a day or 2. Never discloses the full plan and says he will go with the flow. The first mishap happens when he asks me to pick him up from an airport which is 60 miles away from my home during the peak hour which I declines and asks him to take airport taxi or uber. the guy lands and calls me just to reconfirm if I am not coming I said no and asks him to text me as soon as he gets in the car. which he didn't. I am working and since I didn't see any call or texts I decided to leave at my regular time. my bad. when I take a turn to my house I see him standing at the porch at this freezing temp. I feel bad and me and my DH apologize to him. At this point we are trying over board to accommodate and be nice to him since we made him stand in the cold for a half hour. The first pet peeve - he wears his shoe inside my house. A BIG NO for us and infact we do have signs at the door asking to remove footwear. we didn't make a big deal of this but I have a toddler. No. 2 - Now we didn't get a chance to cook at home. We order in and this guy starts complaining about the food. But hey I don't care since I didn't cook. And I said for us Indians the spice level might be too low. No.3 - We all are talking and having food and he suddenly decided to watch cricket on his fone. Duh! basic etiquette - when everyone is talking have the courtesy to put the fone away. No. 4 - Never disclosed his full plans. He would reveal one by one when the time comes. Now my husband is a soft hearted and he doesn't bother about all this. The weekend we had a weather warning. So I was not planning to go out anywhere but my DH insisted that he is coming from far and this is the least we should be doing but come back before 4 PM. So I took him out to the City and take him around in the freezing temperatures and this guy is all the while looking at the phone. I am trying to make conversations and he is least interested to talk. just on his fone all the time. And when the time comes to pay for anything he just walks away from the register. I don't want him to pay but atleast be a gentleman and offer to pay? nothing.. Now on our way back too nothing, he is not happy that we are coming back so soon. WE reach home and he walks in with the shoes. I ask him to come back and take his shoes off. No. 5 - switching on the TV without asking and taking control of the remote control. So now me and my DH are cooking and he is happily watching some movie. No. 6 - I call him to the dinner table about 5 times and he slowly gets up from the couch and comes to the table. Eats and no comments what so ever. No. 7 - NO GRATITUDE. He doesn't have please, Thank you or Sorry in his vocabulary. So now we have 2 more days to go but I am so fricking done. The next morning wake up and make a story about some family emergency and I asked him to find a place to stay. And literally kicked him out. I felt bad but after going through all the events I now feel much better and even think what I did is right. Thanks for reading ladies!
