Hear 20 Stories Of The Worst Things Guests Have Done That Will Make You Cringe Hard

Welcoming visitors into our tiny abodes may be a very personal experience, therefore we aim to make them feel as safe and at ease as possible. Clean linens, fresh towels, fragrant candles, and perhaps a few chocolates on their pillows are all excellent ways to make guests feel at ease. Being a nice visitor, on the other hand, requires far less work than hosting. Simply respect the space and the homeowners, and follow the house rules.

However, it appears that being respectful is not as simple for certain guests as it should be. “What’s the rudest thing a guest has ever done in your home?” Reddit user nl1004 asked. Thousands of readers responded with thousands of comments, many of which detailed traumatic experiences with visitors who showed no consideration for their homes. We’ve compiled a list of some of the most severe examples of guest behavior for you to read and pray that your family and friends never behave in the same way. If you’re seeking for even more guest horror stories, check out our most recent publication on the subject right here.


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.


Some a*****e thought it would be funny to pour vodka in my aquatic turtle tank. Pongu is ok, the dude isn’t.


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.


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.


My cousin’s boyfriend walked over to my ant farm and shook it. I was 7 and devastated.


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.


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.


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.


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!


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.


Stlole my dads methadone for chronic pain. My dad was hospitalized until his script was refilled. This was an older “friend” that i thought was cool. Luckily his a*s got arrested. I felt so guilty brinfknf that pos into my home.


My husband let a former coworker crash on the couch because he had been drinking and we didn’t want him to drive. Woke up the next morning and he had stolen our computer, a cell phone, a little bit of cash, and our cigarettes. Turns out he had a drug problem. We got our computer back.

Had a drunk friend puke on my son’s bedroom floor, he thought it was the bathroom. (My son wasn’t home, thank goodness. ) Had a different drunk friend pee all over my bathroom floor- which I discovered by walking into the bathroom the next morning- while wearing socks.

I need to stop letting drunk people stay over…


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.


Puked in our washing machine and didn’t tell anyone. Found it a couple days later when we went to do laundry…


Uncle tried to fix our computer. (It wasnt broken.) He then broke it. Did the same to our perfectly working dishwasher. Then he denied everything.


Not sure if this would be considered rude but for sure not a good thing to do. I had 2 australian kids staying at my house for a baseball tournament one time. One of them was a chronic bed-wetter but never told us. He stayed for 5 nights and peed the bed each night without telling us. Instead each night he pushed whatever he peed on to the end of the bed. First night the sheets, second night the actual mattress protector to stop any pee from getting to it. (It was a bunk bed my brothers and I slept on as children) and lastly he peed directly on the mattress for 3 nights. Ruined the mattress and we had no idea till he left. The real kicker though is when he took a nap on our new couch. Peed all over it and then fled the scene and we assumed the dog had done it, until we saw the bed that is…

I think that is something you should tell people who open their home to you so they can prepare. And please, dont sleep on the couch if ya know ya got a problem. Also, not trying to shame anyone for this kinda stuff. I feel like its more common then most people realize and I honestly just feel bad for him. Just wish he could have been honest with us so we could have helped him out a bit.


While my husband and I were gone at work my mother-in-law took it upon herself to clean our house and “organize” our things. Twice. Yeah, she’s only allowed in the house on an invitation only basis now.

Edit: My MIL is really a super kind and generous lady! I forgave her and harbor no ill will towards her for doing this in the past. She has worked really hard to respect our boundaries and privacy since this all happened a few years ago. As far as the “organize” thing, that wasn’t meant to imply she stole from us. She just moved our stuff around so we couldn’t find anything for a few weeks.

Also, RIP inbox.
