Inviting guests to your home might be an interesting experience for some, while it can be a torturous experience for others. The experience usually depends upon how your guests talk and behave in your house.
Every house has its own rules and regulations that guests ought to follow. Apart from that, basic etiquette and respect for the space are always expected from a guest. Someone asked on Reddit “What’s the rudest thing a guest has ever done in your home?”, and people shared many stories of disrespectful and annoying guests that might make your blood boil. Scroll below to read some of them.

Had some relatives over, and despite very, very clear instructions to not flush feminine products down the toilet, they did anyways. Destroyed our septic field, almost $10000 in damages overall. When confronted, they just denied it, despite the fact that the 32 pads that where pulled out of the system matches the brand that they had while they were over.

They broke our one TV and didn’t pay for a replacement. My family has always been dirt poor and my mom busted her a*s to buy that shitty tube TV, too.

Dyed her hair red in our bathroom sink – staining the brand new granite countertop, then dripped onto the new tile floor, then dripped onto the hardwood floor in the hallway, and ultimately slept in our guest bed with wet, freshly dyed red hair – staining the sheets and pillowcase.

Everyone has a story from their childhood that still pisses them off, this is mine.
I was five years old and my snotty older cousin was over at our house. I had just gotten a copy of Mike Tyson’s Punch out for my birthday. He was getting his a*s kicked by king hippo and he got so angry he rage quit. But he didn’t just rage quit, he ripped the cartridge out of the Nintendo and spit into it. Then he threw it across the room and stormed out.
I told my parents what happened and they told his parents and they made him apologize, but the game was ruined. It would kind of play, but would freeze up all the time. My family barely had enough money to get me the game for my birthday never mind buying it again. I was sure I would never be able to play it again.
Then for Christmas this little s**t got Mike Tyson’s Punch Out. So my older brother went over to his house and switched our ruined cartridge with his. It was awesome.

My in-laws hated me. We invited them over for thanksgiving dinner and, upon arrival, they asked me to leave and come back a few hours later because they wanted to “follow their tradition of preparing the meal alone as a family.” They are now my ex-in-laws.

I had just moved into a new house. I invited my one friend over for celebratory drinks cause hey, I just got a house. Things were going great, we were tipsy and having fun. My boyfriend was coming home so I made her a bed on my pull out couch. Boyfriend came home and we all went to bed. Around 2 am he heard rustling around, he thought nothing of it. He just assumed she was drunk and playing with the cats. I woke up around 4am and got a bad feeling and woke up my boyfriend. We went upstairs and noticed the bed hadn’t even been touched. Pillows and blankets still folded. I turned the lights on and noticed my front door was open and all the cats were gone. Further more into looking around we noticed his wallet was open and over a 100$ in money had been taken out, our change bowl was empty and his Xbox and brand new elite Xbox controller was gone, as well as my laptop. She stole his medicinal marijuana and broke glasses .I called her freaking out and she said “I left cause I didn’t want to hear you guys having sex (which we never had) and she let my cat out to run away because she didn’t like cats. She then proceeded to say my partner was a piece of s**t who was cheating on me (she had never met him until that night). We called the cops. She denied stealing anything. I messaged her fiancé saying what she had done and what she had stolen, he messaged me text screenshots of her asking how much she could get for his Xbox and Xbox elite controller, thus proving she did steal it. Sent all these screenshots to the cops and they went to her house a couple times and eventually find her hiding in there not answering the door on purpose. She got charged with petty theft and they found out she committed fraud against her fiancé and her dad.
It was a shitshow.

A Christian missionary and his wife were invited to our home as a guest of my partner; he’d known them in grade school. The husband kicked my dog when he was scared by the fireworks so barked during the story he was telling about being in Africa helping kids.
What a juxtaposition of morals!
We immediately told them to leave. They acted very confused about it.

I’m pissed just typing this even though it has been years.
Some of my wife’s family came to visit. The idea was that on their way to the Smokey mountains they would stop and visit with us for a day or two since we seldom see each other and our house is on the way.
Turns out that was total BS, they just wanted to use our house as a free hotel. Which, to a degree, is fine. I don’t mind lending a room to a family member.
But they were not even remotely cool about it. First, they called and asked if we could have something for them to eat because it would be late when they arrived and had no time to stop. So I decided I would make a lasagna since I’m kind of known for that in the family. So I spent like $60 and several hours to make two big pans of lasagna since it would have to feed several people. They showed up with chic fil a bags and said they had already eaten.
Then they went immediately to their rooms upstairs, not to sleep but to watch tv (TVs in the bedroom) without hardly saying a thing to us besides “hi hows it going”.
Then in the middle of the night one of them got cold and turned the thermostat up to like 77 degrees which means the heater ran non stop for hours and hours and we woke up damn near in a sweat.
When they woke up they asked if I normally cook breakfast. I said no, not on weekdays because I have to go to work. They gave dejected looks so I was like, fine, I can make breakfast. Would you guys like waffles or eggs and bacon? They said eggs so I made a s**t ton of eggs and bacon and left it for them because I had to go to work.
When I got home they hadn’t even touched the food I made, the kitchen was an absolute disaster because they decided they wanted waffles instead and helped themselves, without even asking, dirtying every damn dish in the house and ruining my waffle iron because they left it on until it auto shut off but by then had burned the batter until it was fused to the thing and the whole hous reeked of burnt waffles for two days.
They also clearly scratched my wife’s car as they left because it was in the driveway and coincidentally had huge scratch where maroon paint had rubbed off and guess what color their van was. I asked them about it and they said they had no idea how it got there.

My grandpa was visiting us for a day and I was ill. Had fever and all so I was in bed, resting. After we all ate lunch, I crawled back into my bed. 5 minutes later, he came into my room, kicked me out of my bed and started to have a nap.
My mom came to my room to check on me few minutes later. She found me laying on the floor next to bed and kicked him out of my bed, told him to leave. I was like 10 years old then.
EDIT: Never thought I’d get this much response. Someone mentioned about dominance and yes, you’re exactly right.
My grandpa is useless but believes men runs the world. My grandma only had 2 daughters and he was pissed. Eldest sibling is always the best but my mom(youngest) being brighter than the eldest pissed him off. Then my mom had me(daughter) and my little brother. He was pissed with my arrival but ecstatic with my brother. He tried to control my brother but he couldn’t because he was growing old and my parents & grandma interfered with it constantly.
I was weaker than him, so I was an easy target for him. He did so much more than taking my bed like he tried to run me over with his car, but that’s another story for another time.
EDIT2: Couple of people asked about the car story, so here I go.
TLDR: My grandpa was driving and sped up, braked in front of me in a mall parking lot as a joke.
One day he took me to shopping and it was extremely boring for me because he only shopped for himsel and he made me carry everything he bought. Once we got back to his car, he had me put everything away in the trunk and as soon as I closed the trunk, he drove away. WTF
I was confused, didn’t know what to do so I just stood there, lost. But he came back few minutes later, laughing and saying “You didn’t really think I’d leave you, did you?”. I was upset but happy he came back so I reached for the door…and I missed because he moved the car forward. He did that few more times and drove away, again. WTF#2
I was crying at this point. Then I spotted something on the ground. It was my angel pocket(polly pocket)! I must have dropped it while I was chasing the car. I started to walk toward it and I saw him coming this way. Next moment my butt was on the ground and the car stopped right in front of me with loud screech. He sped up and braked to scare me. I sure was scared alright, I thought he was going to run me over.
I was crying uncontrollably. He told me to shut up and get in. As we were leaving the parking lot, he said “You’re no fun, it was just a joke, I sure had fun”.
My grandpa is an a*s.

This is about an undisciplined kid. I hate those.
My mum attempted to hold piano classes in our house once, and there was this one time when a mum and her young (like 7 years old) daughter came for an inquiry. All the time the mum and my mum were standing and talking, and the daughter was walking around touching everything, opening all the containers, looking in, playing with things… And the mum acted like she didn’t see a thing. The daughter opened a container above our piano, and pulled out sheets of stickers. MY stickers. She really liked them and turned around to ask her mum, “Mum, can I take these?”
To which her mum replied, “Yeah, sure!” As if it’s THEIRS!!
My mum didn’t say much and shy as I was I didn’t say anything either. Over a decade later I am still angry about the incident. The focken girl just went ahead and took my stickers!

Wasn’t home when this happened but some family friend I’ve never met and their kid comes over one afternoon.
Kid gets bored and decided it’s a great idea to disassemble every LEGO build I’ve kept over the last 10 years. Almost everything was built from imagination so no instructions to rebuild again. I was devastated when I got home seeing LEGO pieces spread across the entire floor of my room.

A friend of my dad lost his house, and we had a former B&B so we invited them to stay with us. We housed and fed them for weeks while the found another place. For that, we got roaches, criticisms of our food (my dad was the executive chef at a freaking country club and was a damned fine cook), but that wasn’t the worst for me, then in my late teens.
The day they left, I went to play my favorite game on PlayStation: Sled Storm. Couldn’t find it. Over turned freaking everything, but I couldn’t find it. In searching, I noticed something even worse. My SNES, all games, and half my N64 games were missing in addition to Sled Storm. They had stayed with us as a favor and stolen half my s**t that I had paid for with birthday money saved up over years. F**k those people

I had a friend over and we were eating some of my moms chili. He took one bite, pushed the bowl away, and said very loudly at the dinner table “this is not good. Do you have anything else for me to eat?” Needless to say we weren’t friends after that.
No one insults moms chili…

One of my friends in kindergarten wanted a beanie baby I had and when I told her she couldn’t have it, she took it away from me and tried to flush it down the toilet. Then, when the toilet started overflowing and my mom came in, she started crying and said I did it.
We did not stay friends

One of my best mates came to spend the night, so my folks decided to splash out and get Chinese takeout for everyone.
I come from a family of seven, so he made eight. We got 5-6 dishes and two big tubs of fried rice. My mate helped himself to the ENTIRE first tub and, when confronted about it by me, helpfully pointed out that there was still another tub.
For the seven of us.

A guy came in, and when no one was looking, took a single bite out of every single apple in the counter basket.

One time a younger guest went on my parents iPad and bought around $70-$80 worth of in app transactions. They were young but the response after getting caught was along the lines of “The guest should be given nice things.” They were young so maybe they didn’t know better.
Edit: Many people have asked some questions about *the guest*. They were 5-6 years old at the time. I don’t remember if the family paid the money back, however I’m pretty sure the kid got punished severely. We gave the kid the iPad and left him alone and in hindsight yes, that was pretty stupid.
