Mine does and he's here this weekend. This guy starts to party at 10AM and doesn't quit until midnight, listening to loud music, being obnoxious and drinking every expensive bottle of wine in my house. Dh just joins in. Worse, my kids see them. : ( Plus, this guy expects five star dining and wants to eat every meal out. Every time he comes, we're flat broke for a month. And I'm not kidding. Dinner is often over 300 and dh pays it. I have hosted his sorry butt for ten years and the one time we go see him in another state, we STILL pay for his meals out and when he offers us a glass of wine, it's shit. I'm so mad, I'm shaking!
GIRLS, how do you tell your dh that you just cannot have this guy back every year in your home???? They have been pals since grade 1. I am furious that my husband doesn't have the balls to do something about this. Advice? Please. I have to anon on this.

I have the opposite problem. My DH has a BFF we visit about once a year. (we stay at a hotel) He is the nicest guy you could ever meet. For some reason I find myself saying the most condescending, degrading things to him. After they come out of my mouth I think, wow that was rude, and I feel embarrassed. Just one example, he is very tall, and I was commenting that I wished my son were taller (he is 5'6") I said that being a short man can be a disadvantage in our society. DH friend said, being tall can be a disadvantage too, and I spout, "Actually studies show that tall men have the advantage over short men in our society" Condescending much? He was much too polite to mention how rude that was. I seem to do this every time we are together. I feel like I should appologise to him the next time we see him, and tell him to call me out if I'm being an ass.
