He Tried to Help a Friend and Was Totally Taken Advantage Of

A user named squidazz tried to be a good friend, and it ended up backfiring in a major way. “One of my best buddies from high school called me up and begged for me to come get him from a town about three hours away. The idea was he would stay with us for a couple weeks while he looked for work and then get his own place. Six months later I ended up renting him a room for one month and dropping him off with his junk and wishing him well. His father had warned me he would ‘drain me dry’ and he wasn’t kidding. All those months he was supposedly using my vehicle to look for work, he was instead going out to a local bar. Every bottle in our liquor cabinet was drained down to the last finger.”

His Roommate’s Friends Threw a Party in Their Apartment Without Permission

This next story comes from TylerInHiFi. “Had a roommate ask if the rest of us were okay with their high school friend crashing for a few days on their way through town to a festival. We were all fine with it under the condition that they didn’t get a key. Turns out it wasn’t just the friend, it was her boyfriend and another friend, too. The roommate gave them a key. They sold their festival tickets to buy acid and weed, and didn’t tell us they were no longer going. We were told that our roommate said they could stay for as long as they wanted because they were both actually homeless and jobless. One day, we came home to them having a party with a bunch of people over. Thankfully we had to renew our lease right away so we renewed it with one fewer name attached.”

A Guest Invited Random Guys Over And Offered Them a Place to Stay

This next guest horror story comes from Fruitloops_for_B. “She invited a bunch of sleazy guys over, despite me asking her not to. I did not realize they were in my house, because she let them in while I was in the shower. She then took one into my housemate’s bedroom and locked the door. When I got out of the shower one of the guys was in my bed! And I was like dude, get out of my bedroom. He refused and said my friend said he could stay there. I was very not ok with tha, and physically had to push him out of my house. The next day when she sobered up, I kicked her out of my house and did not speak to her for three years.”

The Foreign Exchange Student From Hell

Our next story comes from a user named blitz-dropshot. “When I was younger my family had to take in foreign exchange students to make some money. One student from Japan came, and he was very shy and awkward around us. So pretty much the only times anyone would see him out of his room was when we were eating. After a couple of weeks of him staying with us my dad found holes in the wall in our living room, which we later discovered he had been stabbing our walls with a knife. And after he blamed me for it (I was 9) we asked that he doesn’t stay with us anymore. The only thing we had left to do was clean out his bedroom because there was another student coming. Underneath his sheet was hundreds of tissues covered in semen.”

This House Sitter Let Their Dog Destroy Their Friend’s House

This next story comes from a user named SpicyWonderBread. “We had a house sitter once who wanted to bring their own dog for the week. They assured us the dog was well behaved and housetrained. This was a pretty close friend, and their house is nice and clean so we believed them. Came home to find every rug in our house destroyed. The house smelled funky when we walked in, and I immediately found wet spots on our living room rug. Lifted it up and it had more stained areas than not. Same with the kitchen, hallway, bedroom, and guest room rugs. I’m guessing this dog didn’t pee outside a single time it was there. This was someone we paid to watch our house. I didn’t confront them. We had a lot going on in our lives, and just felt it was best to silently sever the relationship.”

The Dog Walker Secretly Moved Herself In During Covid

This shocking story comes from Ida_Blownem. “Our dog walker was squatting at our place every time we left town. At some point in year 3 she excitedly declares she can do “stayovers” for an extra $25/day instead of twice a day visits. We never found out she’d been there all along, until COVID hit and we went on lockdown. My husband and I were living in a high rise loft with increasing positive cases and shared ventilation. This spooked my husband, so we went to an airbnb for the rest of the lockdown. Turns out she was staying at our loft the whole time. She had a key, the front desk knew she was the dog walker, so it raised no eyebrows. I dropped by to check on things and she had moved in. Clothes in closets, toiletries organized in drawers, the pantry filled with her staples.”

They Asked Their Cousin to Help Them Recover From Surgery, But Got a Trashed House Instead

“I had surgery and was on bedrest for a week. So I asked my cousin, who was living with me at the time, to keep an eye on me, as I was on heavy painkillers. I stayed on the couch and let her use my bedroom. When I recovered, I found used hair weave piled up on clean towels in the bathroom cabinet, a douche nozzle behind my nightstand, trash piled all the way up the wall in the kitchen, dirty dishes everywhere, a plate of rancid food in the microwave, ketchup and mustard smeared on the floors. And she had stolen a bunch of clothing and CDs, along with one of my iPhone chargers (she had a Windows phone). She also poked a hole in my $2500 sleep number bed. I kicked her ass out immediately.”

He Invited a Friend Over Their House to Watch the Game And She Stole All of Their Food

Last but not least, we have what is possibly the most infuriating stories of all, which comes from a user named YeahCallMeStevo. “This reminds me so much of something that happened to me a few years back. I hosted a Sunday football game viewing, and bought all the pizzas and typical snacks foods. As the host, I just wanted people to bring themselves and not worry about having to bring anything. One of my friends comes by to just say hello for like 5 mins. She ended up taking 2 entire pizzas and she even brought her own Tupperware containers to take back dips, chips, wings, and cookies… So that she and her boyfriend could eat it at her own place while watching THE SAME EXACT FOOTBALL GAME THAT WE WERE WATCHING AT MY PLACE.”
