So... [Jun. 18th, 2012|09:43 am]

I needed a place to vent, and LJ is always good for it. No one that could think this is about them is even ON LJ, so that makes it nice.

I hosted two games of Pathfinder at my house this weekend. I knew one of the players would be a pain. It's okay, I killed him in the first scenario when he did something stupid that pissed off the rest of the players (that said, I legitimately killed him. I could have probably killed the whole party if I were feeling mean). Anyway, several of these people are terrible house guests. I don't understand how they were raised or what would make them think it was okay to do some things. So let's see where we go with this: a) they go get lunch and instead of going somewhere fast, they go to a sit-down restaurant and get take-out. That too MUCH longer than picking up a burrito at Chipotle would have taken. When they came back, they ate, and started to throw their trash away, but the filled up the trash can and didn't bother to tell me. So later, when I go get a drink, I look in the kitchen and there are stacks of take-out boxes and bags IN THE SINK! Really? Couldn't you just say "Hey, the trashcan is full. Where would you like us to put these?" So of course, I got a new back and put the containers in it.

Someone brought a pineapple to eat. He asked for a knife, which I had to think about which I should get him to cut it. He got distracted and didn't cut it until later. Without asking me, he got up and got a different knife to cut it with. He got a serrated bread knife to cut a pineapple? WTF? And he doesn't know how to cut a pineapple properly either. Thank God he got our older knife to do that with instead of our Shun. I'd have killed him if he used the Shun. And you can't sharpen a serrated knife on a back steel! GRRR. Then, he grabs something he thinks is a cutting board and uses it. Except it's for rolling out gumpaste, and now it's ruined because it's all cut up. And THEN he grabs one of my cake pans that was out (Since I had two cakes for twins due on Sat), and uses it as a serving bowl! Seriously, it was a total WTF day with this crap.

So, I've decided that while I like running the Pathfinder Society events, I will not be running any more at the house. I'm not willing to have my stuff messed up because gamers don't know how to be guests.

Hosting people is always a challenge. *hugs* and much sympathy.

Yikes! Yeah, definitely don't host any more. Any enjoyment you get will quickly be wiped out by crap like that.

ATFKM? That asshole would be buying me a new gumpaste board AND a new knife just out of principle. It's shocking how ignorant some people can be.
Hopefully, hosting PS events somewhere else won't be as taxing.
