The Worst Houseguests People Have Experienced

We like to think that there's a sort of conduct standard for all houseguests. But it only takes one houseguest to make us realize that it's the jungle out there, baby. And the worst time to realize that people are filthy animals is when that jungle is your home. It's hard to forget a rude and annoying thing a houseguest does, maybe because we feel so disrespected and inconvenienced when someone gleefully brings their crap personality into our private lives. Also, it doesn't help when someone leaves after cracking your toilet in half like they're the King Solomon of pooping.

Picky Husband Makes House Hunting Difficult Task, Gets Called Out, Complains

The process of trying to secure a home with your partner can be an exciting, fulfilling, and nerve-wracking experience. With that being said, the last thing that you want to find yourself dealing with is an irrationally picky partner who seems like they're able to find something wrong with every option that comes across the table. It's all about meeting in the middle, and it sounds like this husband was ready to do nothing of the sort. And then when he gets called out for his antics, he complains that he's not in the wrong at all.

Pettiest Things People's Neighbors Did To Them

Moving into a new home can really end up being a roll of the dice. You very well might find yourself unfortunately closely located to a neighbor who went from being reasonable enough, to a full on catastrophe. We just ran a brief story about a rather nasty neighbor who continually troubled the cops with the pettiest of complaints, and then ended up losing half of his garden in the process. Hopefully these people's stories of their nightmare neighbors make you feel better about any scenarios you had to endure with unfriendly neighbors.

Company Won't Accept Mortgage Payments, Tells Customer They've Defaulted

There's a type of business that makes itself deliberately hard to navigate just so they can charge weird fees. Some companies will even hide or delay just how much interest they've charged just to bully customers into paying for late fees they didn't even know existed. Navigating the corporate landscape as one person can be an absolute nightmare, but after dealing with the absurd process of paying their own mortgage, this person realized they didn't have to put up with the nonsense. For another tale of financial absurdity, here's a guy who got hounded for a trivial debt and ended up mailing them a dime.

Tumblr Thread: 70s House Is Carpeted Geometry Salad

Times change, but some houses don't really. It's unclear who would want to live in this excessively carpeted homage to non-90 degree angles, but it has its own kind of charm. Would it be comfortable to live in? Probably not, but it's a spectacle and that's what counts. It's kind of like this unique house with multiple themed rooms.

Entitled Family Demands House Sitter Pay Their Utilities Bill

This person gets someone to housesit and feed their pets for a week, then they turn around and make up a bunch of charges for the person? Sounds like the cartoonish demands of an entitled person. And even if paying the utilities was part of the deal, which it wasn't, that number is still way too high. It's impossible to understand what's going on in the heads of entitled folks with audacious demands.

Unique House Listing Is Weird and Kind of Awesome

A virtual tour of this house reveals some weird and amazing stuff. And for $159,000 could this even be real? It looks like they have a main area that's some kind of Gothic, space inspired medieval man cave, with extra rooms becoming a space theme, island theme, and what is that, a lab facility? It's nothing at all like this listing for the gaudiest house you've ever seen.
