Los Angeles Times - - SUNDAY COMICS - Send ques­tions to Amy Dick­in­son to askamy@amy dick­in­

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.
