Am i the only one, who after reading through those two threads...never wants to have anyone visit, or go visiting anyone ever again?
What if my house isn't clean enough/too clean, my housemates have decided to get rid of the handtowels again, the kids have wandered off with my teatowels
i serve a cold drink in a mug (cause that's just what i do). argh

Yes yes yes! I'm so with you! Have just come back from a weekend at friends house and I have serious paranoia now.

Yes! I'd never have anyone in our current house because it's a sh!thole, but when we move it's something I'll be painfully conscious about!!

When I have visitors, I don't change our home environment much. I clean as I go so my house is constantly clean, I makeup sure I have a platter of food and dips on the table for them so they can snack and a drink. I make sure that our toilet and bathroom sink is clean and that's about it really.
If they don't like something, tough tits lol
As for visiting other peoples homes.. I choose carefully. I avoid dirty houses because my OCD kicks into overdrive and I follow what they do. If they have their shoes off, I'll take mine off. If their shoes are on, I'll keep mine on. If I'm thirsty, I'll ask for a drink. I won't stay for lunch or dinner unless invited.
I'm the best guest to have = D haha

meh, if a person likes you, they will not care.
I think if someone comes over and is that judgey, then you don't really want them as a friend.
I used to have a friend who is a hoarder, it never bothered me, as that is her and she is an awesome person.
I think a real friend, will be happy to ignore any little things, as they just want to hang out.

I don't like having people over anyway, so I don't care... and so long as their house doesn't reek of dog or cigarettes, they give me a drink in a CLEAN glass/cup/whatever and their cats aren't sleeping on their bench, I don't really care...

Meh, if people don't like me for who I am, and as I am, stuff 'em.
I still don't understand why people have issues with clean and tidy houses, though. What's wrong with it?

The only thing I care about is that it's hygienic, doesnt smell of cat per and smoke.
Thats it. Tidy, mess I don't care.
I don't get the mug thing tho? That would have never even crossed my mind. Do only poor people drink water out of mugs? It's kinda weird.
Ohh well guess I'm showing my class by drinking water out of a mug... Lol
