How do you deal with obnoxious houseguestsPage 2 of 5    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5)
chloroform; knock him out, tie him up & stuff em in a closet till after the shindig; no seriously, I don't suppose this is something you could bring up with the folks that he's coming with? Let them be the bad guy, after all, THEY are putting YOU in a bad spot; some people! If they bring his scaly ass around a lot, they should be the ones to deal with the "put a shirt on you pus filled filthy mcnasty" talk;

No knees, cancer, psoriasis......
Let me guess, they call him " Lucky ".
There are some people who insist on making everyone else as miserable as they are.
Have you thought about a hotel room for the weekend ?
Not for him, for yourself.
One of the disadvantages of having too many bedrooms in your house.

I don't think you're shallow at all; I refuse to surround myself with the Debbie Downer's of the world; no thank you! There are a lot of folks that have it a lot worse than this guy; he sounds like a real pain in the ass; I think the sending him to a hotel is the best idea I've heard yet; and tell that friend that brings him how uncomfortable the whole thing makes you!

Holy crap! Am I ever glad I don't have you as a "friend"!!! That has to be the most insensitive post I have ever read. Why don't you just arrange to have the guy euthanized or perhaps confined to a leper colony???!!!

FYI...one of the BEST treatments for psoriasis is SUNLIGHT. But obviously, according to you, he has no right to even that.

Shame shame on you!

Not only would I wear a tank top if I had psoriasis, but I ENCOURAGE my daughter to expose as much skin to the sun as possible always.

The "flakes" are called plaques and they do NOT fall off easily anywhere. As for armpit hair and dandruff getting into the food, learn some manners and PASS the dishes.

You need a reality check and a lesson in HUMANITY. YOU ARE SHALLOW and do not try to pawn off the shallowness by pretending to be concerned about how other people might feel about your guest. The OP is all about YOUR prejudices and YOUR insensitivity, not about anyone else.

All kidding aside, my daughter's babysitter (when my daughter was little) had a RAGING case of psoriasis; big thick layers of skin, all over; knees & elbows were the worst, but it went into her hairline, around her ears and everywhere; I never even thought about it; it was just something that she dealt with; she did say that the doc said the type she had would be helped by tanning, although I never saw it get any better; but she didn't sit around & whine about it, matter of fact she pulled as many guys than I did, and I was (and still am) pretty smokin; it was just her personality, she had this thing, but she didn't let it affect her life that much; this guy just sounds like a pain, oh woe is me, see how good I'm doing in spite of my afflictions? bleh; you have to be dead to be a saint, don't you?

Personally.. I think you should have a talk with your friend and SHE should make sure he doesn't wear that tank top.. also... if he starts bringing up his afflictions, simply suggest a lighter topic.. I would not mind telling him not to discuss health issures at a picnic where people willl be eating. Also, are you sure his skin problems are not better? I just think your friend should talk to him before he comes.

I bet he does expose his skin because of the sun, but he doesn't have to do it on that particular day. It's not what you say, it's how you say it, and I think it's fine to tell the guy nicely that he should wear a shirt because you don't want to see his psoriasis. It probably never occurred to him that it was a problem.

Off topic: there has been a lot of research on cures for psoriasis recently, so I'm pretty sure he will be able to take advantage of them in the future. And I also read an article on tanning beds, in which psoriasis sufferers were quoted as saying that their psoriasis disappeared once they started tanning in a tanning salon.

I read several postings so I wouldn't come off as jumping the gun, but I gotta tell ya...

The guy is obnoxious, passive aggressive, disgusting and yes, did someone say boorish? Tell you friend to have him wear a shirt with sleeves, and long pants. Or tell him not to come. Period.

Your other guests shouldn't be made to feel uncomfortable, and I'd get the heaves if this guy sat next to me and wanted me to touch his funky knee. I mean while I'm EATING? Come on, people, let's not be overly politically correct. The guy is gross, and he knows it, he's pushing the envelope and manipulating everybody. I do not think he's a nice, "giving" guy. He's forcing everybody to look at him. He's deliberately pushing everybody's face in it, it's a game for him, daring someone to be offended. You're being used for his amusement.

Or...he's too stupid.

I'm pretty sure this topic is about a houseguest who doesn't care whether he offends or not, not whether people are accepting or not, or whether children are more accepting than adults.

The bottom line is that this guy, in a party / meal setting, would be offensive to the majority of the other guests. I agree with all the others who said he should be conscious of how others feel while they are eating. He should be reeled in by the hostess or the person bringing him. If it was my party, I would insist that the other guest be the one to tell him, or not bring him.

It only makes sense to me not to let anyone be a guest in my home if I am not comfortable with something about that person. I have treated many disgusting skin conditions over the years gladly for people and animals that I care about. However, if I don't enjoy someones company to the point that I would find it stressful being around them, they wouldn't be invited (house guest or picnic). Correct me if I am wrong please, but you don't seem to enjoy being around this person. (This doesn't make you shallow, just means this person doesn't relate well to you.) I wouldn't be washing laundry, dishes etc. for someone I don't like, scabs or not.

You know what.. there are some really mean uncaring people around here!!! This man may not realize what he is doing, when people are depressed or negative they are just that way. Whatever you do about this... TRY and be NICE!!! It must be terrible to be in this man's shoes and have to deal with people looking down on him all the time. I have a dear friend with that skin problem and he is down on himself about it and how he looks. But he is just a totally wonderful person, so I love him as my friend... pretty skin or ugly skin.. I was blessed with good skin but I would NEVER hurt a person's feelings because of how they look or because of any type handicap or sickness they have.

Luna.. you have some nice kids to think like they do.
