I'm not fussy about much, we are renovating the house so when my friend's son drew on the wall I dont care cos we are going to paint it soon
But what I dont like is people saying I'll call past on saturday (for example) and dont give an approximate time! I've got lots of things to do so I dont want to wait around home all day in case they call past! But if you say about 4 o'clock thats fine, I'll make sure Im home.

I hate when people turn up un announced and expect you to just have nibbles with tea/coffee etc ready and waiting there for them, especially when you had plans to go out. Then you feel rude just shunting them out the door cause they've made you late.

Nothing bothers me when guests come to my home, I just want them to feel comfortable. If they are doing or their children are doing something I would prefer them not to, I just tell them
I do however hate when people drop in and my house is untidy, they don't care but I do!

I'm fine with short term visits - I like my friends to make themselves at home because I am too lazy to wait on them
But I can't do anyone staying for more than 3 nights. I like my space and get crabby when people stay for longer and expect us to entertain them an take them places every day!

I'm another shoe person, I've now got a sign near the door "life is full of choices, remove your shoes or scrub the floor!" lol
And put the bloody toilet seat down! Although I've trained most of DPs friends to do this now as I'm a little vocal about it and will call them on it haha
But my biggest peeve is when people give their children snacks & food and let them walk around my house eating it! We don't eat on our lounge or in our rooms so your children can't!

I just make kids sit down to eat at my place now if it's messy food. I have a table and 4 chairs for kids and it's a big table and I'll just put the food down and say 'kids, come and sit down and eat.'
The only thing that ever really annoyed me was a friend who told my 3 1/2 year old to go and put some clothes on because she shouldn't be walking around in her undies...she kept insisting on it and I told DD2 she didn't have to if she didn't want....we are no longer friends though

Not much bugs me really. I don't like kids sitting on the couch if they have shoes on, but wearing shoes in the house is Ok esp in winter as we have floorboards that can be a bit cold.
And it bugs me if someone comes over and stays to mealtime, you have to say 'excuse me i just need to get the lunch/dinner ready', and they still make no move to leave. then I feel obliged to offer to include them, and they say OK... i don't mind feeding you but geez you have been here three hours already and didn't you have any plans to feed your kids? Now i have to make 2 chicken breasts stretch to 7 people and i'm out of rice

DH saw her just as her hand touched the door knob and absolutely lost it. I'm sorry but sometimes she deserves it. She's too full on.
