So you go to spend an holiday or live with someone especially for a limited period of time.
Here’s some guides and tips to be a sweet guest.
1) MAKE YOURSELF USEFUL.
Don’t go there and act like you lack home training. You are a guest, make yourself useful to your host. They won’t even want you to leave
Help with the Dishes.
Clean the bathroom
Sweep the floor. Do something.
Don’t just eat, sleep, and watch TV simply because you are a guest. They won’t invite you again.
2) DON’T BE A DIRTY GUEST
Don’t leave plates and dishes you used to eat waiting for your hosts to wash.
Don’t leave lather (that foamy material) on bathroom walls after bathing, wrinse them off
Leaving your dirty pants spread proudly in the bathroom. Haba mana
3) DON’T USE/MISUSE THEIR PERSONAL EFFECTS
How can you come to stay with someone and you start wearing their pants or boxers, singles? How?
Using their sponge to bath, or their toothbrush, towel, haba, did you escape from a psychiatric hospital?
Don’t just get up and use their clothes, or shoes without first taking permission, they may have plans to use them, or they may have certain skin conditions you are not aware of.
4) FOLLOW THEIR RULES .
This ain’t your house, you can’t come to someone’s house and be calling the shots, you are not an armed robber.
Stop rearranging their stuff, people know how and where they leave their stuff, its their house, resist the urge to rearrange people’s house and stuff to suit your taste,.
Telling them to change the TV channel for you to watch what you want. Decoder that you subbed for them?
5) PUT A KNIFE TO YOUR NECK .
So you find out they have a stack of provisions, food items, a fully stocked fridge, hey, calm down, be disciplined.
How can you visit someone and finish a crate of eggs in 3 days, finish a big tin of milk in one week because you saw it there.
Whereas in your own house that same tin of milk lasts for 2 months. .
6) CONTRIBUTE FINANCIALLY
You are squatting with someone and yet you don’t contribute, the gas gets finished, they will fill it, toothpaste will finish, you will still wait till they replace it, till then you stop brushing.
You are saving money and your host is feeding you, don’t you fear God?
7) DON’T STEAL THEIR STUFF
Very important,before you become a guest at the police station.
8) DON’T BRING ANOTHER GUEST OVER
You are staying with someone, and you are inviting friends of yours over, entertaining them with your hosts provisions, inviting a friend to sleep over at a place you yourself are just a guest or squatting..
Don’t do this. You are a guest, you can’t be a guest and a host at the same time without your host’s permission and approval.
Don’t be the guest that People never want back.
Let’s be guided.
