    Default So angry!!!! VENT

    We have just returned from a wonderful relaxing holiday on Hamilton Island, while we were away I invited a friend to house sit for us. I offered to save a few dollars on putting our cats into a catery and also so I would have peace of mind whilst we were away, I also offered my home to my friend because his current living arrangements are not great and I know how much he loves our home, we live on the beach, have lovely bay views an inground pool, spa etc... For him it was a bit of a holiday!! (I could have had our neighbour care for the cats as really they are quite self sufficient). Anyhow we returned today and I'm pretty upset by what I have come back to - grease all over the carpet in our bedroom, my sons IPOD dock is not working (I did pack it away in my walk in robe but judging from the greasy finger prints all over it, it was used), there was shards of glass all over our ensuite floor (looked like beer bottle glass), there is a broken deck chair in the pool area and another broken chair from a very expensive setting on the upstairs balcony, I have also found pin prick holes in DS's bedroom wall (looks like his kids have played blooming pin the tail on the donkey). Not to mention my pantry is bare, dishwasher was full of dirty dishes GGGGRRRRRRRR SO ANNOYED!!!!!!! I invited him to stay as a more of a favour to him, no I did not pay him or offer any money but seriously I thought we were friends and I'm so upset that he has treated my home like crap :-( Never again!!!! Vent over

    Omg how rude of your 'friend'.. Sounds like they had a party. I would be having the biggest talk with them and have him replace, clean and repair the damage..

    Gee people can take others for granted sometimes.

    I would definitely hit the so called friend up for damages. What a horribly disrespectful thing to do.

    Thanks for listening to my vent, I'm so sad and disappointed about it, DH is fuming and my heart is broken over my DS's IPod dock he is only 8 and saved up his own money to buy it $100 is a lot of money for an 8 year old to save I am too gutless to confront my so called friend, but I swear he and his children and whoever else was in our home when we were away will not be welcome back again. DH is going to buy our little man a new iPod dock tomorrow, poor bugger cried himself to sleep tonight he was that devastated

    Please speak to him about it. Or have your husband speak to him if you don't think you can. Someone like that needs to be held accountable. He may even offer to pay for it all if he's called out in it.

    Definitely get your Dh to say something. This really isn't acceptable, especially how hurt your poor ds is.

    that is inexcusable.
    i would definately be saying something to him, even just write him an email if you can't do it face to face.
