How do you tell a friend "NO"? ...when they have invited themselves to your home for a 'cheap vacation'!!!!

They have stayed with us previously.....very horrific house guests!

I dont' want to hurt any feelings. But.....

  • You may not have any choice in the hurt feelings area. If they're not invited, conveniently make plans to do something else and let them know that you don't want anyone in your house while you are gone!

    I don't envy you your situation, but good luck!

  • If they aren't friends with your extended family, just say you suddenly have family coming in at the same time. Family takes precedence over friends, and they should understand that. If they still come to your town at the same time, you also have a convenient excuse not to invite them over, and to just meet them somewhere.
