Re: Just venting..not a happy camper

Note to self: Don't tell ANYONE if I ever get a lake house, guesthouse or vacation home.

 

Holy smokes, people are something.

 

I am wondering if she called you to test the waters to see if you noticed they ate your food. 

 

Showing up at my house with dirty linens?    I would have laughed her right back into her car.

@Carmie Wow that is insane. No good deed goes unpunished is certainly true in this case.

@Carmie It's hard to believe that this is even a true story, but I do believe you. So many people just baffle me now a days. What an ungrateful couple. What they should have done was left the place spotless and leave a vase of pretty flowers on the counter for you to thank you for your hospitality.  This story really take the cake.

Re: Just venting..not a happy camper

Wow that's a bizarre story.  My husband always consults with me on such questions but I would never allow anyone to use my property especially in my absence and really especially if I didn't know them.  Since your husband invited them he should square things away with his coworker. You shouldn't have to be involved with the coworker or his wife at all.

Wear a mask. Social distance. Be part of the solution - not part of the problem.

Especially if word gets around the work place that so and so has a place on the lake that he let us use for a week!
