Be Our Guest. Mind Your Manners.
Thanksgiving - the holiday for family and food. It's a busy time, as we travel to see loved ones in the small towns and big cities that we're from. Going home feels nostalgic and cozy. I can't wait to go home and feel like I did when I was young, surrounded by everyone I love. I'm thankful for having that this year.
That being said, there always seems to be that one family member who takes the phrase "make yourself at home" a little too literally. I'm sure at some point, we've all been "that" person. Yes, it is easy to get too comfortable with your own family. But a little etiquette goes a long way for your holiday host.
Below, I've compiled a list of the most annoying things a person can do when staying at a relative's house. Here are the top results:
- Arriving unannounced or without an invitation
- Breaking/ damaging things
- Leaving a mess in bedrooms/bathrooms
- Being loud
- Staying up late with the TV volume up loud
- Coming back drunk
- Being too demanding
In a few hours, I'll be heading towards Minot to spend the weekend with my family. I might need to take this list home and put it on the fridge so everyone knows not to get out-of-hand. Do you have an obliviously inconsiderate person coming to your holiday?
