Totally with everyone else about the animal thing!
It really annoys when people don't pat my dog hello. She's happy to see you! GIVE HER A DAMN PAT!!!
It also annoys me when people try to feed her crap! I'm very strict about what she eats, so no, you can't give her lollies or chips!
Visitor toilet etiquette - I had a house full of relatives last year, so I don't know exactly who did this one. But someone left skid marks on the toilet seat, TWICE!
For those that get annoyed with people out staying their welcome. I used to have a humdinger of a neighbour who'd come over in the morning or afternoon.... and not leave until 1-2am.... Weekends, week nights, didin't matter! She also had an 18 mo who she just let sleep on the lounge.
i dont like people re-arranging my possessions, like picking up photos and putting them down in different spots, using cups and not using coasters underneath.
tbh, id rather meet someone out for a coffee than have someone over at my house.
People showing up unexpectedly: give me notice so I can hide some of the mess in a room you won't see! And also get dressed more appropriately, as often I'm walking around bra-less and pantless nowdays. Surprise visitors in this situation are not appreciated!
Coming over just before or right on mealtimes. I then feel obligated to talk to you and attend to whatever you wanted, while my food goes cold.
Coming over right on bedtime, and distracting, playing with and riling up my kids when you know they're meant to be going to sleep. You want to start a tickle war at bedtime with them? Fine, take them home with you when you leave.
Oh, and telling my kids off in my house.
People who don't take their shoes off when they can see a pile of shoes at the door. White tiles + 39 weeks preg + OCD freak doesn't work well.
People who put their shoes on my lounge & coffee table -.- hello?????
When they leave their rubbish outside on my pool table or on the kitchen bench...don't you know how to use the bin?
When they don't put their cig butts in the ashtray...
When they take my remote and change the channel to what they want to watch..go home and watch your tv!
When they leave my nice clean house a mess! "It's ok, she's on mat leave & will clean it up...she has nothing better to do." grrrr
They always manage to come over when dinner is ready and won't leave until really late.
When people txt you saying they will be here soon (you didn't know they were coming to start with) and then they turn up 10 mins later... And your still in pjs and you havnt done any cleaning yet...
People who wear their shoes inside, people who refuse to take them off when I ask. Tradies are allowed shoes inside, because it's OHS, but aside from that... if you're not taking them off, you can wait outside. It's a cultural thing for us, then a cleanliness thing.
People who leave their drinks in reach of my babies then don't watch them. They're usually childless or have older kids and have forgotten what toddlers are like.
I hate people in my house! I dont know what it is. I dont like people using my toilet. I hate the feeling of having to jump to their every need. But most of all I hate kids in my house! Kids are gross and rough.. They break my little boys toys and ruin his things lol eventually ill have to deal with it when he has friends over though.
