    Love it! Totally agree!

    Unfortunately our dogs aren't that well behaved so we usually leave them outside unless people are used to them or not afraid.

    I can't stand hair in the sinks, no hand towels (what am I supposed to use your shower towel?!) & unmade beds kind of annoy me.

    But seriously, what the...?! People leave used undies with pads on them out?! That is the most disgusting thing ever!!

    I haven't met a Great Dane I didn't like (once I was more comfortable with them), I was still nervous because of their size though and knowing that they are an animal, well trained or not.

    I have two Great Danes and two Irish Wolfhounds.

    Poor BlissedOut, if you visit I'll buy you a special adult size high chair, so you can appreciate from a distance

    When visitors who like dogs come over, all the dogs lie on their beds, so they look smaller. I'm used to the flailing arms and the screeching "what is that omg it's huuuggee keep it away from meee" even from tough tradies. I find that people relax faster if the dogs are lying down at the beginning, and then are allowed to stand up later in the visit.

    The thread asked what people hate, so people are posting it. Everybody has different standards, and I think as a host and a visitor you have a responsibility to please.
    Hosts: take note of what your visitor is like. If they're pretty chill that the kids created a war zone with toys or like animals, relax. If you smoke inside and are inviting a non-smoker, do the courtesy of moving all ashtrays outside and air out the place. Owners of pets, if you have over excited dogs or you know your visitor is uncomfortable, lock them away. I'm sure the dog can handle it.
    Visitors: take note if something bothers you, and remember this for the next time you visit. If it really bothers you, say something. If you're too polite, better pack a hand sanitizer and a cordless vacuum.

    In response to the thread question, I'm with majority about dogs, hand towels, toilets, dirty mugs and inside smokers. Also other kids who have food stains on them and look like they have never seen a bath. You can't possibly expect me to want my daughter to play with them?

    Just to clarify - I have no issues with dogs providing they don't jump / lick / slobber all over me, if tour dog came and sat by me I wouldn't be all ooohh no get that mutt out of the house,

    I have two cats, two fish a bird and a rabbit who come inside so animal inside dont bother me,

    If my cat is bothering someone by climbing on I would hope they would say can you please restrain your cat or give her a gentle push off their lap

    That's really considerate (the lying down thing, not the high chair - I'm 5'11, so it'd be a very very high chair). I feel sympathy for any idiot brave enough to attempt breaking into your place. I think even if the dogs smiled they'd still crap their pants.

    I'm going to PM you.

    The only things I hate are dogs that sit 10cms from kids/babies faces trying to take food from them, and licking kids, and just plain filth. A family member is guilty of this. I'm talking about bottles with curdles milk laying everywhere, their kid peeing on the floor and just using a tea towel to spread it out all over the pitch black floor. Other than that I don't mind how people live.

    You know I just thought of something else .

    When you go over to a friends cause you want a DMc and then another one of their friends you barely know also drops in so you spend the whole visit making small talk but can't really talk about the private stuff you really wanted to talk about. It's really annoying .

    Me too. I can't handle chaos and clutter. Toys do have their own place and get put back in that place once the kids are in bed. You'll always find fresh flowers in my home and never a dirty dish or even clean ones drying on the sink - not because I have visitors coming but because I can't handle a dish in or on my sink for more than an hour or two. Dishes are done in this house 3 times a day at least - after breakfast, after lunch and after dinner.

    Do do not need nor want to see that.

    It's plain disgusting.

    (a family member is a repeat offender for this.)
