An Open Letter to Disrespectful Guests at Open Houses

Dear Guests,

I invited you into my seller's home via ad in the paper, internet marketing and word of mouth for an Open House. You came into the home on a rainy day with your muddy slippers on and ignored the sign to "Please remove your shoes".   I had to hold my hand up to stop you from coming on the brand new carpet!

I'll remember to order those throw away shoe covers ...

....because your feet were muddy even after you took your slippers off!

You then proceeded into the house blubbering incoherently and walking sideways.  I could smell the alcohol on your breath when you shouted, "Happy Mother's Day"!   You then started looking around at the seller's stuff and commenting on the "Roomba Cordless Robot Vacuum Cleaner". 

You didn't pay attention and adhere to my request for signing in on the guest register sheet.  I had to ask you a second time before you blubbered something and wrote illegibly. Why did I even ask?  

Your child then ran up the stairs and started to fly open closets. I had to run after the child and ask politely to come back downstairs until the parents were ready to come up. When we came back downstairs you were looking in the refrigerator and asked me if you could have a beer.

I exclaimed NO! 

I then politely asked you if you were here to view the home and if not ...PLEASE LEAVE!

You are the guest in the home to VIEW the home  for sale and not disrespect the agent and the seller and prance around like you are the owner of the home.  Please take off your shoes, sign in on the guest sheet and control your children.

Is it too much to ask to respect others homes when you are a guest in their home?

If it is, you are not on the guest list.

Kathy....serious?  That is really bad. I almost forgot about that contest!  I have time ..thanks for the reminder!

Mike...mad at me?  Aww.  I don't hide my expressions well and in the end all ended well :) 

Patricia: That was exaggerated ....but I've had people look in the fridge before too.

On Mother's Day even!  I can't believe someone had the guts to act that way (and I assume he was driving too???)  Yuck.
