So I get a text message from my daughter wanting to know if my grandson (her son who lives with his dad) is out for summer vacation. I text her back and let her know he is out for the summer.
She replies that she wants to come down and spend a week with him at my house. To her credit, she did say she would buy groceries for the week.
I text her back and tell her "Sorry, but I'm afraid that won't be possible" She sends me a message back wanting to know why. So I tell her:
"It's like having two kids at the house instead of an adult and a child. You don't pick up after yourself, you don't make your son pick up after himself. You ignore me when I ask you not to bring food upstairs to his room, or bring food into the living room."
That's not actually everything, but I figured it was enough.
Her reply was "Fine I'll just get us (her and my grandson) a bada$$ hotel room for a week"
I'm not sure how she'll swing that since any bada$$ hotel that I know of requires a credit card to be able to check in.
I didn't reply, I'm really not interested in having an argument with her, but I think it's pretty ridiculous to be willing to spend a lot of money on a hotel room, when she would be welcome at my house for more than just a day or two, if she would just respect me and my house.
