What is something someone did to you or in your home that was completely absurd all you could do is laugh about it (quietly with your husband) lol.

Whether it was house guests or family members or complete strangers.

I ask because something happened to me yesterday..... continued below.

Yesterday, we finally got the rest of our carpets replaced. Well, while I was out with the girls shopping (to keep them out of the way), my DH heard a clip....clip...clip noise so he went back to our bedroom and one of the carpet guys was in our bathroom and DH could have sworn the guy was clipping his nails (DH left the clippers out when he put everything else out of sight) and then the guy came out of our bathroom and said "oh you scared me" to my DH. WHY would DH have scared him unless he was doing something he shouldn't be do.... I mean it is OUR house after all!!
Sure enough, after they left, our nail clippers were moved and not in it's original place and there were dirty nail clippings in our sink (and we don't clip our nails into the sink). I had just cleaned the bathroom the day before and those nail clippings weren't there that morning! We were so baffled as to why someone thought that was ok!? We are still laughing about it today. I disinfected the bathrooms again after they all left cuz our bathrooms were used multiple times.
Absurd!? I think so!

Now you girls may think I am being totally absurd, but we have been building our house by ourselves for 4 years now,most of it in the first year. We have had very little company in this time frame, I swear people Think we will ask the, to help...we don't...but anyway, we have friends in KY that are just starting to build a new house and invited us to come visit..it is 21/2 hours one way from us.....so we plan and go...you can imagine our surprise when we got there...they were building our house.....ours is cedar sided and theirs is log...our house plans were for a log house, we just chose the cedar...there is nothing different about the layout...I stood speechless until I could find my voice and then told them how much I loved it....I really did because mine is exactly the same....and yes they have been to our home, several years ago....Am I wrong to feel so hurt and what were you thinking????????

Oh wow. I could understand a similar layout, but not the exact floor plan. That's just... wow.
