Attention Kmart Trash: The Rudest Things You Can Do in Someone Else's House

How many of you have done ALL of these things, and worse, to a host's lovely home?

Swiped their lush toilet paper?

Snooped through their sex drawer and licked stuff?

Pocketed their jar of Moroccan saffron?

Told their chid'rins that Santy Claus is as fake as the Tooth Fairy?

I always found the Kmart clientele a step above the WalMart clientele we see today. No matter how 'low, low prices' they offer, I just can't bring myself to go in there anymore. Last time I was there (before the pandemic) I was standing in the check out line and two obese women in front of me with dollar-store wigs and wearing midriffs and stretch pants decided they're going to 'dance' in the check out line. Thank you - I'll pass.

A friend of mine crapped in my toilet. At the time, I lived in a shitty cheap apartment and the extractor fan didn't work, so the smell lingered for hours afterwards. He also left a skidmark. And no, he didn't have an upset stomach, he just needed a shit. He was my friend's boyfriend and this was only the second time I'd met him.

I still remind him of it.

This. It's a pain in the ass to arrange flowers when you're so busy dealing with hosting duties.

Here are a couple more:

1. Don't bring a dish that will take up a lot of fridge space or hog my oven. I don't have the room for it.

2. Bring your own serve-ware if you bring a dish. Don't expect me to go routing around for corn cob holders or a shrimp platter.

I cannot believe that people need to be told to avoid doing things that any five-year-old would know to be unacceptable. Seriously, what sort of mentally ill person opens drawers and medicine cabinets in a stranger's house, helps him/herself to food and decides to start grabbing things and having a look at them without asking for permission first? I also find it shocking that people would need to be told that you always bring a small gift when someone invites you into their home. Come on! These are things that are so basic, that even a little child would know them!

The rudest thing I have seen a guest do is to order food to be delivered at someone's house because he was "on a special diet", only to then hide it all away once it arrived and start asking other people if he could taste what was on their plates, instead of requesting the host to simply serve him the same that everyone else was eating. It was so offensively disrespectful and despicably selfish - you order food without telling anyone, make a fuss about not being able to eat what is being offered (which made the host very uncomfortable and forced him to apologize), then put your food away so you won't have to share it with others while demanding that they share what they're eating with you? How repulsive.

I don't think I need to say that I completely lost whatever respect I had ever had for that person. Petty, inconsiderate and scandalously selfish behaviour in social situations tells you A LOT about who an individual truly is.

This isn't the first time I've heard it, and certainly understand the thinking behind it, but I'm not going to stop bringing flowers when I'm an invited guest. As much as an inconvenience as it may be in the moment, you forget all about it when the party is over and you have beautiful flowers to enjoy for a week or so. On the opposite end of things, I always love when guests bring me flowers. If I run out of vases and have to use a pot as a vessel, so be it. Not a bad problem to have.

Well you're silly R50. I warmly ACCEPT every hostessing gift but they are not always appreciated in a practical way. Bringing food to an invitation to dinner is very often a very clumsy and thoughtless thing to do. Even though the person might think it's thoughtful. Of course accept it warmly but then have a shot of whisky in the kitchen trying to figure out what do do with some cunts Mac n cheese when it goes with nothing on your planned and prepared menu.

I will never forget my visit to a couple I was friends with who happened to be vegans. Since I am not a vegan, I got their permission in advance to stop at the grocery store and pick up a few items of junk food to store in their fridge/freezer for me to snack on during the week. These were the type of foods that they were very against, being vegans, which is why I asked for their permission first.

A couple days after I arrived and had stowed my treats in their fridge and freezer, I went to take something out. There was nothing left of the food that I had bought. Confused, I asked my friends if they had any idea what had happened to my food.

They'd helped themselves to it and eaten it all. They weren't embarrassed in the least, either.

They also adamantly refused to set foot in any restaurant that served any kind of product derived from animals. The rest of the week, I either went to restaurants by myself, or got fast food and sat in my rental car and ate it.

A smart host / hostess would have a few vases (large and small) filled with water , set aside somewhere so if flowers are brought, they can easily plop them into a waiting vase. It would take less than three minutes of their time. At the end of the dinner party, if no flowers have been brought - then dump out the water and put the vases away for the next party. Such an easy solution to be 'proactive' than 'reactive' in situations such as these.

A smarter host would make friends with people who don't bring cut flowers to a small dinner party. Flowers are useless. You can't eat them, and they die messily a few days later.

Oh, wait, there's one such cunt in this thread.

honestly this is a question of class milieu and how close you are to the hostess.

You most certainly do NOT have to arrange them that evening. Take off the paper and stick them in a heavy vase in the kitchen. Mention how thoughtful or how lovely.

Don't bring flowers to a rich woman or man who is pretentious or if you don't really know them so can't know their likely reaction.

for working class and lower middle class invites, I believe they are universally welcome and seen as a nice gesture.

don't bring them to college or young adult dinner parties in stead of booze. Always bring booze. But DONT Bring booze to a rich person unless it's spectacular booze AND you know the host and know he's not a control freak.

No wonder some people don't leave their homes. I get the urge to bring something to a host's home. I'm also of the opinion that politely asking via text or quick conversation "can I bring anything?" is very appropriate. Your host either says, "no, please don't...just bring you" or "just bring what you'd like to drink if you don't like booze." What happened to just being honest and transparent without making your guests face an awkward social dilemma? If you take your drink of choice home with you, however, that's another subject. That's cheap and embarrassing on your part.

Not surprisingly, the HuffPost list is witless and almost pointless.

Thinking about the subject I've been quite lucky it seems. About the worst I've had happen is to have.people set a drink beside a coaster and walk away, probably to get another to do the same.

I think every host has had a guest show up with someone uninvited/unannounced in tow, though it's not a problem if it's not a dinner party and of the tag along guest is at all pleasant.

Back in the early nineties, invited a crowd over to my shiny new flat and someone brought their interior designer partner. She insisted on a tour of my 2 bed, 2 bath then over dinner gave a detailed critique of everything that was wrong with my pad: ‘mirrored wardrobes!’; ‘plastic bath and shower tray!’; ‘fully fitted carpets!’. It was a time and a place and these were normal in a decent starter flat. I felt embarrassed and deflated. Now acknowledge that I’d met my first cuntiest cunt that ever cunted.

I was young, naive and relatively socially inexperienced r109. It was a big unfamiliar thing to have a dinner party at my new place. And she was an obnoxiously self-assured cunt.

This is why I never, ever hosted anything at my home. Really - why bother ? Snooping guests, crticism posed as a compliment, special dietary restrictions, etc - who needs it ?

If I want to get a group of friends together for a dinner, I invite them to a nice restaurant and pick up the tab - usually no more than 6 - 8 people, so we can all enjoy each other's company and conversation. Some will always takes care of the bar bill, some will always take care of the tip (in lieu of 'hosts gifts' ) - so it works out well, around twice a year (summer and fall / winter).

Nothing like going on vacation only to find out several members of your extended family toured the inside of your home while you were away. Thx to mom and her extra key.

The bar bill is probably more $ than if the guest just paid for his / her own meal. Same with the tip.

The worst history I remember was in a party many years ago. Two guys decided to hookup on the main bathroom, apparently someone wasn't ready to bottom and they left evidence of that on the bathtub as 2 shitty handprints. Everyone knew who were they.

Actually I experienced a prime example of something you don't ever do when you visit someone's home. Many years ago I had a small gathering at my place. I'd invited about 10 people. One of the guests asked if he could bring a house guest who was visiting him from California, and of course I said that was fine. The tagalong was about 3 sheets to the wind when they arrived. He walked around the room picking up things and giving them the once over, looking dismissive. When he walked over to a tall glass cabinet saw 2 antique silver drinking cops that came over on the boat with my grandmother's family from Portugal in 1898. They were already over a hundred years old when they brought them to America. He did a PFFFFT and said loudly "I can't stand cheap silver plated crap". I informed the fool in a very harsh tone the cups were over 200 years old and were solid silver, then I looked at my friend who brought him with an equally harsh look. The friend got up, took the drunk by the arm and said "let's go, we're leaving" and literally had to drag the asshole out. Everyone there just sat stunned at what an idiot the guy was.

So kids, don't visit people's homes drunk, and keep your opinions of their belongings to yourself.

I swiped an entire pint of Haagen Dazs from their freezer and then went to their powder room and ate it all. Took me all of 5 minutes. They were WASPs and were absolutely starving their guests. It was decades ago but I still remember how satisfying it was.

As a host, I loathe people who show up with an unprepared dish, and want you to provide a knife and cutting board, turn on the oven, provide a serving dish, etc.

Also, stay out of the kitchen if there’s no reason to be in there! I always have the food and drink set up in another area. Go, enjoy, and get out of my way. I don’t need any nonessential staff underfoot.

Many years ago my (then) partner and I would stay a week or so in P-Town with some close friends. One of them was a bank officer, and his boss invited us all over for a drink. His boss and his partner owned a beautiful home in a nearby town, and he was excited to make a social connection with him. We met another couple that we all knew, and they were invited along. We all got to the home and were invited to sit in a small den just off of the kitchen where they had put out some snacks, wine etc. One of the other couple asked to use the bathroom - awkward already as it was a small bathroom right there off of the small den. He goes in to the bathroom as we are all getting acquainted and the hosts are pouring drinks.....several minutes go by and we are looking at each other a nervously wondering what is happening in there. All of a sudden, we all start to detect a horrid stench - and I mean like the worst you've ever - like a bloated rhinoceros carcus roasting in the equatorial sun horrible. The boss looks at our friend and says, OMG is your friend OK? We all kind of stood around and made small talk when finally he comes out of the restroom looking refreshed. My friend apologized to his boss and said they were running a little late for a dinner reservation and we really should be going. When we got into the car the bathroom mans parter said 'What the fuck is wrong with you" - it was really out of character for him and really funny to all of us. Maybe you had to be there - but as people have said on this thread - number one if you have to, but never number two.
