OK, so this couple in their 70s booked me instantly. They came at 3PM when I was at work, so we exchanged messaged if everything was OK and such. The husband has the ABB profile and he booked me for 4 nights. One review, 5*. Upon arriving at home in the evening, they complained about the “horrible traffic” and how they couldn’t get out of the driveway because the traffic was coming with 50 miles per hour. Parathesis here, the fact that I live on a very busy road is disclosed in my listing, if they didn’t read, it’s not my problem.
I was very surprised and I told them that in my 20 years of living here I never had to wait more than 30 sec to get in and out the driveway. The wife was vehement that this is not possible! I told them that the busy street is in the listing and I offered to let them find something else and reimburse them.
They decided to stay.
Then the fun begun. The wife was sick. She coughed like every few minutes, so bad, like spitting her lungs out. I tried to ignore because they came for a funeral the next day, but i couldn’t sleep a wink. the next day i woke up before them, like 5 am an went to the gym.
In the evening I came home at 10 pm, hoping they would be in bed but no, the guy was waiting for me in the kitchen and commented that i work so late. Meanwhile his wife upstairs was coughing her lungs out.
So I went to bed and again I couldn’t sleep. I woke up this morning and again left at 5 am avoiding them and i got so angry that these people make me uncomfortable in my own house and that they shouldn’t be coming to people’s home when they are so sick, that I sent them a message asking them to leave and called ABB CS to tell them I want them out.
I mean they are going to give me a bad review no matter what after they complained about the parking. How should I review them? To me they are totally mad to be staying in people’s houses when the wife is so sick. Even with the funeral. I just recovered from flu last week and I don’t want to start again. I also don’t want my guests coming tomorrow to catch it. I feel like disinfecting everything they touched, the bathroom, the kitchen and washing the bed sheets with the highest temperature possible. Anybody been through this? What should I say in the review?
