Hannibal Lecter had an effective strategy for dealing with rude guests.

Cat - my secret weapon
An acquaintance called on me. I don't particularly like her but she is certainly not worth quarrelling with, so I was resigned to a few minutes' boring chatter. Then I heard Cat scratching in her litter-tray. This scratching ceased and about a minute later the smell drifted through. Cat had unleashed a stink bomb of megaton proportions. My unwanted visitor suddenly remembered that she had to get to a shop before it closed. Perfect timing.

Haha!

This tactic works well on my mother...though it is almost always unintentional! I have checked kitties diet with the vet to make sure it's okay. His only excuse for his putridness is that he is a man, and that men just sort of do that. The female is dainty as a lotus and never causes a fuss.

I'm still giggling, give me a second...


Oh, I had this cat -- little black ball o' fluff, turned into an absolutely handsome tom -- he'd come out of the bathroom looking proud of himself, and then the odor would hit. I swear I could have bottled that, and sold it to the military!

He was good at handling rude guests, too -- he'd start by smothering them with "kisses" and purrs, killing them with his powers of CUTE, then fart right in their faces.

My way of handling the rude and disrespectful is to issue one warning, and if that is ignored, it's automatic: Leave. I don't care if it's my *mother*, the rules are in place for a reason -- to preserve my sanity.

I've had a couple of rude guests in the past.

My absolute PET PEEVES are when a person goes into the fridge or cabinet for something without asking, or uses the bathroom without asking first. Another big one is when a person doesn't clean up after eating their food ( you know, those who don't even bother to take care of their empty napkins, plates, cups, etc. and expect everyone else to clean up after them.)

Simply, if they cross the line, I do make sure it's the last time they ever set foot in my house. And probably the last time I ever share my company in with them in any way.

Whenever I encounter a rude guest in my own personal lair I make sure their experience is an absolute hell. I keep them in my presence boring the shit out of them. The yawn and want a nap but I keep talking about things that I know anyone would be bored with.

I enjoyed reading the responses and think that all of the advice/experience shared can be applied depending on each situation.

They get two chances to be rude, and one warning. They get to walk home after that.
