    People leaving things within my toddlers reach (wine glasses particularly) when there are several out of reach places available!

    People bringing kids over with runny noses or shocking coughs then saying "oh they're not sick" when I question it and looking at me like I have two heads for saying anything at all.

    People who stir up the dogs and think it's funny to antagonise them and have them jumping at the fences/doors.

    I will say before i say this that i absoultely love my grandparents in law. They are wonderful people and so loving.
    They ALWAYS turn up unannounced and ALWAYS at nap time . Usually the house is a pig sty too...washing everywhere, dishes in the sink, toys etc everywhere, they must think we are pigs. I HATE people turning up at nap time, not only is it DS's sleep time but its MY time too. Im usually watching some bad tv and feel like i have to get up and clean if they are here. Yes i know its selfish but it drives me crazy...mummy needs her nap time too!!

    One particular friend lets her youngest dd (2.5 years) be really rough with dd4 (almost 6 months). Its not just her going ott with affection, she actually tries HURTING dd4 by hitting, poking, grabbing, even trying to stand on her. If my friend is holding dd4, she lets her daughter grab dd4 (usually around the head) and just laughs and says "oh she loves babies". I resorted to putting dd4 in her cot when this little girl comes over, but she ends up sneaking in anyway and climbs in the cot!

    When friends come over with their kids and the kids torment my cats. Our smaller cat is very timid as it is and no matter how many times I say leave the cat alone, they dont listen and the poor cat ends up hiding for hours because she is terrified. She has gotten to a point as soon as she hears the front door, she bolts under the tv cabinet or hides up inside our couch for hours. Even locking them in the laundry doesnt work because the kids open the door AND baby gate to get to them. Ffs, I have said how many times to leave the damn cat alone!! And its even more frustrating when the parents dont do anything! Seriously, if the cats lash out one of these days, dont even bother crying to me!

    I don't like visitors in general. I have a phobia of people doing things wrong in my house.

    I don't like people helping themselves to drinks etc OMG and wet door handles I'm really anal.

    I hate people trying to clean when over. My mil is awful for this. I have a washing basket where all socks and undies go and that way they are in the same place and I just grab a pair from there when we need it. She folds and pairs all the socks and undies and puts then away. Arhhhhhh. Then I have to to 4 different rooms for socks before heading out. We are a no shoe family at home and this adds 15 minutes to leaving every time she does it.

    I remember doing a thread about this annoying thing years ago, to see if it were the 'norm', but mine is when certain family members come to stay with us and upon leaving, they dump all their used towels and washers etc in my bath tub or shower recess like you do when you're staying in a Hotel!

    The only other annoying thing I can think of is female guests doing their make up at the bathroom sink and leaving all the foundation in the sink/around the basin and then wiping their foundation hands on my white hand towels.

    Messy kids visiting doesn't bother me and they can make all the mess they want they can drop their chips, drop bits of food on the tiles while eating All fine. but breaking things for the sake of it and not by accident bothers me, many toys my kids have waited a year for visitors come and kids older than 3 smash it into 100 pcs,my kids start balling, a break by accident ok but smashing it on the concrete over and over till it breaks not ok, smashing my brand new walls that need to be plastered again and BRAND new kitchen with heavy cutlery and chipping the cupboards and the stone that's just mean! I hate when people come over for an inspection' instead of a visit. It happens all the time from DH family. Why is your plant dead are you that lazy not to water it, why isn't your herbs growing, why didn't you wash the crumbs off the driveway. One SIL who didn't want anymore kids while her husband did wanted to prove a point at my expense- took him around the place (at the time I had a newborn and the other 3 were 4 and under) saying look washing, toys, dishes food crumbs You want this I wanted to really punch her and tell her to get the ^*+ out.

    - I had to edit as thought of one more lol

    Shoes in the house is the main one for me, people who let their kids stand on my couch.

    i cringe a little inside when other kids lie on my DD and DS's beds especially when they've been running around and sweating. But they're kids and I just change the quilt cover and pillowcase (and sometimes wash the quilt) when they've left.

    Ah I don't have to worry about annoying habits from visitors anymore. In this year alone I've lost about 5 friends and of those friends, they had the little Sh!ts of kids that would bite, push, and bully my DD as well as look through kitchen cupboards, bathroom cupboards, jump on the lounge, beanbags all with shoes on and the parent not saying a thing. I'd have to say something!!
    Thank **** I no longer have those "friends" in my life. I'm an introvert and the only people I'll be happy to have at my house is family .
