A few years back (in 2004), my hubby's cousin came to stay with us for a while at our older apartment. Needless to say, that didn't last very long. He didn't contribute to anything, and was disrespecting our place. In 2006, after recently moving at our current apartment. His mom whined to us, because he and his (former) girlfriend needed a place to stay. It wasn't easy, but we let them stay again. While I had no problem with the girlfriend, the cousin was his usual self. After a few weeks of things going missing, non contibutions, we asked them to leave, and this time we meant it. He tried to give hints, but we still refuse him to stay here.
My other experience is my hubby's oldest brother, (my brother in law) and his wife needed a temporary place to stay. This was back in 2007. The day after my 30th b-day October 18, they were suposed to leave and move into another place. That never happened because his wife left him. So, we were stuck with him from September though January of 2008. In January we were tired of him not helping out, or contributing to the place, so we asked him to leave.
If anyone has had simular experiences, feel free to share!!
