Default Advice if you are a prolonged houseguest

We have a friend staying over from out of town. He's lost his business and is planning on moving here. I've allowed him to stay here until he finds a job and can afford to stay on his own.

Since he's stayed here I'm reminded why I can't stand roommates. He uses my blender glasses for my Ninja to get water only because they're bigger than regular glasses. He'll wash dishes because he does not like to use the dishwasher. But when I go to put the dishes away there's food particles still stuck on the dishware. One time he attempted to put away a cutting board and I saw raw chicken on it. He'll offer to cook, but leave the biggest messes which I or my wife will have to clean the next morning.

My advice is if you are a prolonged house guest, don't offer to help cook or clean around the house. Offer money. You may think you are useful but really it becomes an annoyance. If you don't have money then, then offer once you get a job or make a verbal commitment to pay back. Give at least half of what is expected for room and board. Give material things like beer and wine. But if you do decide to help around the house, make it a job that you know you can do 100% beyond your expectations. Cut the grass, shovel the walkway, repair something you know you can do. Do the things that the owners would rather put off or pay someone to do. Just some helpful advice.

Are you afraid to leave him and your wife alone?

Agreed

BTW - This isn't the gay guy who snatched your prescription glasses, right?

Lol. But I did get payday out of it. I confronted him and he got a new pair of perscription Tom Fords and I got a pair of $1200 DITA sunglasses. Not bad for 7 times the value of my first pair of glasses

Baller bro.

BTW, seeing as you are in the supplement and nutrition industry

What are your thoughts on Carbs and Fats in relation to testosterone levels and hormone regulation

What sort of macro balance is optimal in your opinion

Yes, but I have better morals than 99% of the population.

Not how much but what type or carbs and fats that will affect you're hormones. Eat zinc rich foods and avoid estrogen enhancing foods like soy and yams. Although there isn't a lot in those estrogen promoting products it's generally a rule of thumb. But zinc is optional in hormone regulation for men.

Sucks. I know a girl whose husband had a friend stay at their place that she didn't approve of. Dude was lazy, no job, slept on their couch.

She ended up going crazy on him and now he's gone.

Awkward for everyone.

It's getting there....
Especially not properly washing the dishes. It annoys my wife that the dishes he washes we end up having to put in the dishwasher anyways. Or all the sauce mess left after he cooks. We try to make it inconspicuously obvious by constantly wiping down his mess when he happens to be in the kitchen. We're just going to have to sit him down tonight and just tell him to relax and not do any cooking or cleaning. Just buy the groceries and we'll do it.

if you stay at someone's place, make sure you stay out of their way as much as possible and remember you have to adjust to them, not the other way around you ungrateful little vermin

Ugh, people who don't clean up after themselves in the Kitchen, are just ugh: i don't mind someone being a bit messy, but people who leave actual dirt everywhere are disgusting. Especially in the Kitchen, as you have to cook as well. And the worst is when they get all defensive like it's not even a problem, or that they aren't doing it. Those kind of people really suck to live with, and they can be nice and kind and generous in lots of other ways too.

Reminds me of Uni: made a big mistake with my first choice of roommates.

Yes!
Offering to cook does not negate the big mess that I have to clean up after.

The worst for me is he uses my Blender Cup for getting himself water when we have plenty of cups.



I mean, who does that? It's clearly an item not intended for regular drinking water, but he ALWAYS grabs my blender mixing cup
