Dear Amy: We used to live in another state and were friends with a couple and their family.
The daughter of our friend is 25. She contacted my husband (working out of the country) to say she would like to stay with me in our house. I said OK.
She booked her trip and never contacted me. She stayed with friends and went clubbing for four days before she contacted me and said her friend would drop her off the following day.
Four days went by — nothing.
I sent her a text: “I thought you needed to get away and clear your head. I think when you are done with your friends you need to go home.”
She sent the text to her mom, who forwarded it to my husband. He called me, upset. I have not heard from the girl or her mom. Hostess With the Leastest
Dear Hostess: This young woman seemed to want to use your home as her in-town crash pad, and given her lack of respect during her time in your town, I think your response was appropriate.
