How do you get rid of unwanted guests?
We’re having people over for dinner on Sunday night and they’re notorious for staying waaaaay too long. Even when I start to yawn in front of them and comment on how late it is, they still don’t get the hint. They’re so damn hard to get rid of. Got any suggestions?
Just P**s Off
All of my guests are unwanted. So I can certainly empathise with your dilemma.
I find that in situations like this, it’s all about subtlety. Your overdone performance of yawning and commenting on the time is too brutal and probably just has the opposite effect. There’s a proper way of getting rid of an unwanted guest (scientific name: grogan).
I usually find that flea bombing the house about ten minutes before my guests arrive usually does the trick. Especially when I greet them wearing a gas mask. They never stay very long.
Hope this helps.
With kind regards,
