Is it just me?
I can’t stand when someone invites themselves or their children over to my house. I get it – I am a loner, some might say anti-social. I don’t send out a lot of invitations; but, really, if I wanted you to come over I would call or text you. My husband, son, and I enjoying being together, just the three of us. We like not having a schedule and we can each entertain ourselves yet be in the same room enjoying each other’s company. You or your kids needing something to do is not my problem. I do appreciate that you enjoy my company enough to want to come, but please be patient and let me want to invite you over. Every time you invite yourself over (or let your kid call my cell phone to invite himself over) it makes me less likely to answer your phone call or text and more likely to avoid you in public whenever possible.
Do you have this problem? How do you deal with it?
Note: I’m the non-confrontational type so interactions of this nature are very challenging.
