People Share The Worst Things Their Guests Did When They Took “Make Yourself At Home” Literally

Ever invited guests over, only for them to take the phrase 'make yourself at home' a little too literally?

From snooping through cabinets to overstaying their welcome, some guests have a knack for pushing the boundaries of your kindness. 

People shared some of the most cringe-worthy tales what their guests did on Reddit, and they are absolutely horrifying:

"My brother's best friend came to live with us for 'a few months' because he wanted to move back to our state. Well 8 years later and he is still there, all my parent's children have moved out but for some reason my brother's best friend is still living there." - u/xyz388

"My father in law was staying with us for a month. The spare room was an office with a sofa bed in so it could double up for guests. He bought a double bed and got rid of the sofa bed. I lost my office." - u/Equivalent_Parking_8

"Dinner guest asked to stay overnight because of the snow. Spouse and I agreed as we didn’t have work the next day. But guest did - and at 7:30 in the morning he was freaking out because we hadn’t shoveled the driveway for him yet. 'How am I supposed to get to work on time?!'" - u/user256049

"I had guests turn the pool heater on in February and not turn it off or tell me it was on. I noticed steam coming off the pool a week later and it was 90*F. The bill was just under $1000." - u/Fickle-Willingness80

"An in-law took about a 28 minute shower after I explained we were in the middle of a drought and that our well was dangerously low. I’m assuming it was going to be a 30 minute shower but we ran out of water." - u/bandi53

"I’ve had relatives eat all the food in our fridge, use our house to play host to people they know in our city. They also broke our screen door and had no remorse whatsoever. It was presented as 'oh your screen door is broken!'" - u/Deliciously_Frothy

"The $900 phone sex bill. It was the early 90's and the bill came on paper and was about 100 pages." - u/MakesCakesEatsMud

"Rearranged my kitchen. That b*tch. It was a guy I'd gone on two dates with that I left alone in my apartment for a few hours. My mistake I guess." - u/makin_the_frogs_gay

"He literally took his freaking socks off and put them on the dining table. Dude... what?" - u/soleildelalune_
