dsmama Posted July 4, 2012 Share Posted July 4, 2012 We are in a tough spot, etiquette-wise. We live in central VA, where the tornado/storms hit. We have no power in our home, and have had none since Friday. We have friends -- good friends -- who contacted us Saturday via email and wrote, "We are headed on a cruise, we have heard our neighborhood has power. You are welcome to stay in our home for the week. Here is the code for the key and alarm." So we thankfully go. We are very blessed. I have done my best to help keep things clean, do the laundry they left at home, clean the kitchen, be a good guest, etc. And then, the bites start. And the itching. The kids and I have welts growing on us and are scratching like crazy. And then my DH sees what he thinks is a bedbug in the master bed. And there is weird stuff in the mattress lining We have lived through bedbugs before. To say it was HE double toothpicks would be a complete understatement. So....oh, my goodness. What do we say? "Thank you for letting us into your home. Two years ago, we had bedbugs, and now we think you do?" Any help? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
