In summary, people who come to you unexpectedly and stay for too long hours can be a nuisance. A good blast of Raid should do the trick.

What do you think of people who come to you unexpectedly and stay for too long hours? Any idea about how to get ride of them?

I like to have guests :uhh: but you know some people just come to your home in a wrong hour for example when you're too busy or you're tired...
The worst thing about them is that they say goodby to you more than 1000 times but they never leave! :cry: :cry:

well thsi is probably too immature but i had a problem with some guy who was constantly coming over when i was in high school. One night, he came over when this other friend of mine was over. So we all started to watch the matrix so me and my friend tried something. She sat up next to me while he was on the floor ors omething and told me to grab some duct tape that was nearby... and then we pounced! We didn't get him but he never came around much after that :D Woohoo!

Well I could have catalyzed the process. Next time invite me over and tell her we are here for the French connection - a la - menaja twa

I'll drop the usual 'Hubba Hubba' and you can start timing how fast it will take her to get out

She was my mother's guest! :grumpy: You know my friends know me quite well, they always call me first if they want to meet me.
And there's a problem about your suggestion:
I know if my friend just see you(no need to tell lies about french connection...), they will leave me immediately(and perhaps never talk to me again), but I don't know how to make you leave after all! :uhh: :wink:

We Canuks are under no obligation to entertain another person's guest, unless it's a seldom-seen relative. I'd just go about my business or leave for quieter pastures. I don't know how it is in your culture, though.

He wasn't lying; it's just wishful thinking. There seem to be some residual delusions from the sleep-deprivation.

:bugeye: :bugeye: I even didn't talk to her. I was in my own room. Having a person in your home in a wrong hour could be abit distracting. The only problem was that I had to see her whenever I wanted to quit my room! So I asked my Mum to visit her guests in another room!

Sounds like my suggestion may be more appropriate eh lisa? :)

Unfortunately it doesn't work for some people!

Oh come on, who doesn't fear the duct tape attack

People who thinks you're kidding! :bugeye:
 
  • #13
Then don't be kidding ;) hehehe
 
  • #14
Do you think it works then? Anyway I think they still wouldn't believe I'm not joking. Sometimes I look at some people's eye and tell them how much I'm tired of talking to them and how much I dislike meeting them. And they think I'm joking! :bugeye:
 
  • #15
Pfff, do it then! I am like that too... especially because i can't keep a straight face no matter what I am talken about. Everything makes me laugh.

Wait, how old are you and how old are these people that need to be shown the door? :D
 
  • #16
I'm almost 23. And they're in different ages less than 30 of course! :wink:

I'm serious when I say that but they can't believe my honesty!
 
  • #17
Welll my plan is too immature for you anyhow :D

You could ask guests who overstay their welcome if they would like a cup of cocoa/chocolate. Since this is sleep-inducing, they ought to get the hint and leave.

Unless of course your like my friend who takes the hint and takes a nap on your couch! EVERYTIME! Oh my god my friend was sooooooo annoying. It almost became a habbit that i'd come home from class... sit down, start doing something online and then he'd come over, we'd joke for a few minutes, and then he'd fall asleep on my couch... it practically was clockwork.

If he's straight, make advances on him. Then he'll get really fast out of your apartment.
Of course, if you're straight and he's gay, it can get rather embarassing..

There is 2 problems:
1. what if it's early morning?
2.If they were able to get a hint, how they would overstay since I always show them I'm really tired of them in different ways!

Ok, if subtle signs don't work, become rather more blunt:

"I'm sorry, but I was a bit late up last night, and I've got this head-ache . It was very nice seeing you, but I really need to rest a bit for myself"
Or something like that..

By inventing some credible excuse to personal physical weakness, you are being polite in not telling them that they have not behaved inappropriately.

If they still don't get it, you are perfectly entitled to tell them that they have overstayed their welcome, and that you want them out of your house.

I've got a friend who has a friend who comes over all the time, to the point his neighbour assumed he was his boyfriend :rofl: that's a subtle clue to start hanging out less.

And if he comes again and again, he should introduce him to you!

And if s/he was your boss or one of his family members?

Prepare it very slowly...
Perhaps you should offer some sandwiches, go into the kitchen and accidentally cut yourself or something.

Well, someone showing up unannounced and uninvited is pretty rude, and then to stay around late is even ruder. No reason you can't start yawning loudly and say, "Well, I need to get up early for work in the morning..." and if the guest doesn't immediately take the hint and get up and head for the door, continue on with, "I'm so sorry to have to cut our visit so short, perhaps you could call and we could get together again some night that's more convenient for both of us." And at that, get up and hug your friend good-bye and start walking to the front door. That both let's them know it's time to leave and that next time they should call first to make sure you're free.

But bosses tend to be rude...

What do you do about weekends? :rofl:

No, it's not good. I'm afraid they may want to come in again! :uhh:

Eat lots of curry and diced carrots and then drink a glassful of salty water. That way you can time a projectile vomit into whoever you wish to leave :)
