Unwanted house guests

Grrrr.....My daughters father came to visit her on Sunday from UK for a week with his 14 year old son. As I was going to germany with work for a few days I (mistakenly) offered him accommodation while I was away, but was very clear that he had to leave when I returned. (i have a dog, so its easier if he walked him rather than him going to kennels, hence the offer of accomodation).

This seemed like a good idea at the time, he would save some money and I would get the dog walked.

Well, my house is a complete pigsty, clothes, food cups rubbish everywhere, I had to really shout at him to get the dog walked, he doesn't clean up after himself, wanders around in his trolleys and smokes in my loo....My trip from Germany was cut short (unfortunately), so I agreed that he could stay until the dates we had originally agreed. He is supposed to be leaving today but thinks he is staying.....is he thick......do I have to hit him round the head with my wok to get him to understand.....?

He's driving me maaaaad, I have now developed a nervous twitch -

I want an eject button

And here is why you are not with him anymore.... Count you lucky to not have to deal with that everyday!

This is your house. You made it clear it was until today? So today is the day he leaves.

No question, no arguement. And make him clean up after himself before to take the door.

Being the father of your daughter, being your ex doesn't give him the right to treat you without respect.

Good Luck!

Re: Unwanted house guests

I would tell him he's got until this evening to sort himself and your flat out, if he can't do it, put his bag outside the front door in the morning and tell him to go find a hotel! I mean, smoking in your loo?! Seriously though.

- Listen to Swiss music
- Hide the remote control for the TV
- Turn off the computers

The key is to make the son so miserable, he'll force his father to take him back.

Thick or not all men need a good whack round the head with a wok at times!

Seriously, I'd tell him to go. End of. No discussion.

Good luck.

Nil is totally correct,

I recently had kinda the same issue with my Boyfriends step dad...
Not as bad as in he wouldn't make much of a mess but hung around ALL day every day doing nothing..

Get him out now! I had my 'unwanted VERY unwanted guest for 3 months!'
Be firm stand your ground and defo do not let him stay !!

Good luck!

Re: Unwanted house guests

those replies cheered me up......

Just beaten him round the head with the wok, he is staying one extra night and he is getting a car as I told him to get his a--e off my sofa and go out, and not with my car!!

He's got these sodding biker boots things that he doesn't take off either, so he clack clacks his way round the house on my tiled floor......

Told him to clean is pigsty as well, seems to have done the trick.....fingers crossed
