Is there a type of holiday guest that you hate? Leave it in the comments section below!
With the holidays come houseguests. And some houseguests are not exactly welcome guests. And some are just plain horrible. Here are the 10 worst and ways to deal with them:
1. The Laissez-Faire Parent
Her vacation is your babysitting nightmare as her little
terrors children throw tantrums, tease the cat, and destroy your house while she sedately sits with a cop of coffee. Hey, not her problem.
Avoid the urge to run after the
gremlin tyke, and give her a knowing smile when he comes crying with a boo boo.
NEXT: THE COMPLAINER
2. The Complainer
The house is too warm; the shower’s too cold, and are you really going to put mushrooms in that casserole?
Nothing is good enough for The Complainer, so why even try? Pretend her voice is a buzzing mosquito, and ignore her.
NEXT: THE PICKY EATER
3. The Picky Eater
She’s easy to please. She just doesn’t eat meat, wheat, gluten, white starches, soy products, fruits that begin with A, P, or G, or anything that’s been cooked. But no trouble, really!
Feed her stuff you buy from the Whole Foods raw section, and pass the cost along to her by buying her a cheap gift.
NEXT: THE THIEF
4. The Thief
You swear you put your credit card back in your wallet, but what’s this charge for Larry’s House of Pork doing on your statement? And doesn’t your sister-in-law have a ham "problem?" Hmmm…
Buy a safe, and keep your home stocked with pork products.
NEXT: THE SNOOP
5. The Snoop
Your desk has been rifled through, your medicine cabinet is rearranged, and you heard a distinct "click" when you were last on the phone.
Best hide your private stuff before The Snoop comes to visit.
The worst kinds of guests and how to deal with them.
