In general, one very funny story turned up here, which we present to your attention!
My husband and I lived in a 4-room apartment, with my sister and her little son (she divorced her husband, it is difficult and scary alone). Everyone has a room, a living room for everyone, a seating area for a "movie drive" in the evening.
The husband is a nonresident. My apartment. Some time after the beginning of our life together, friends of my husband's parents began to often call us. I barely know them, crossed paths at family celebrations of my husband's parents. Their head of the family has such a job that once every 2 weeks he is in the capital for a day (a driver at the organization). He was given a daily allowance for food and a hotel. But he preferred to save them, coming to us for a day. Everything would be fine, but his visits always fell on Friday evening, when my husband and I, having completed the working week, happily looked forward to meeting with friends in a cozy bar or club. He called an hour before he drove up to our house. Gritting our teeth, we turned the car home, I dejectedly washed off my makeup and cooked dinner for the arrival of the "dear guest". We were brought up in such a way that it was difficult for us to refuse a family friend, an adult. You can't. They don't do that. They were afraid to offend someone. This went on for a long time. Then my husband passed, fell on Thursday. We walked very merrily until the morning in the club, we didn't get enough sleep, and in the morning we went to work. We dreamed that this day would end sooner and the long-awaited Saturday would come. But the phone rang. The naive husband thought that this uncle wanted to wish him a happy birthday, and answered the call. Yes, he congratulated him)) said "open the door, there is a gift!"
The present turned out to be he himself with a bottle of cheap cognac, his wife and their 2 grown-up daughters. It turned out that the boss allowed him to use the car for personal needs, and they came to the capital for shopping in a family. We decided to spend the night with us, and in the morning, refreshed, go to spend money. People were sure that there was a lot of food left with others, and they would be fed. But we didn’t celebrate at home. The refrigerator pleased with empty shelves. In short, the cognac was drunk by them. Under the remains of dried sausage. I couldn't make a bed for them all in the living room and went to bed. She swore not to answer calls with the number of their region. A month has passed. Husband receives a call from his mother-in-law's best friend. It turned out that her daughter (a girl with Down syndrome) entered the Moscow Conservatory. But the sick "little girl" is scared to lodge in a hostel, and those same friends of the family told her that we live in a huge apartment with a bunch of free rooms. And it would be great if we allocated one room for her daughter during her studies. By the way, I could not stand that girl for her bad manners and selfishness. Down's syndrome manifested itself outwardly, but otherwise she was an ordinary foolish naughty girl. My husband replied that he would consult with me. And then I got a bomb. Not only that, the "distinguished guests" are not calling me, the landlady, but my husband. Not only do they take up my time with their endless visits. Discomfort to my whole family. So now I have to endure a stranger to me for 4 years, because her mother does not want to rent her an apartment ?? Be responsible for someone else's child, for her food, etc. I called her and politely said that we could give them shelter for a couple of days and help them choose an apartment for rent. We'll find something in a couple of days, okay? There was silence on the other end. Then she asked her husband to phone. I didn't listen to their conversation. At the end of the conversation, my husband came merry)) told me that I turned out to be an insolent metropolitan bitch, and he was a spineless deer, and just do they never go to us anymore !! Thus ended a series of uninvited guests, and our reputation was not enviable before.
