Being a good house guest

'It's ok ABI Brother. Don't worry about making the bed. I am going to wash the bedding anyway.'

That is what I would have said if I saw him attempting to make the bed. He didn't.

    Oh dear! We do so hope that he had plenty of sparkling conversation as compensation.

    I always find it hard to read people. When I was in Australia, I always offer and make the bed but my host would get all huffy and puffy on me so I stop doing it.

  4. My brother J&L? I don't think so. It was the night he went to the Kylie concert. It took him two days to ring me and actually tell me anything about the concert.

    Fen, our friend from Japan will be here in a month or so and stay at least one night. I bet after reading this, it will be the neatest made bed ever.

    Seems odd Anon. If I am a guest, I just make the bed unless told otherwise. If they say don't bother, I won't. I have learnt to try and remember what it looked like and remake it the same.

  5. Gee, I would have gone for the best of both worlds, and said it anyway - but sarcastically!! At least you'd have a childish sense of point-scoring satisfaction, while the end result (ie unmade bed) would be the same ...

  6. What's the point Red? A straight bloke making a bed is just not going to be to our satisfaction.

    I believe I have always left the bed neatly made up but you're right, I'll be practising my corners from now...V.
