Here’s a scenario for my fellow hosts to mull over:
I have a guest who checked in a few days ago. He needed a place to stay after having epic fight with finacee. He’s somewhat local - coming from a few towns away. Asked to book another week, so we did. He doesn’t have any place to go. We have future bookings - he’s lucky we had a week available (I have 33% occupancy rate).
Nice enough guy, but seems unstable. Goes on about how “crazy” his ex is. He admits to being somewhat unstable himself. I keep asking if he scheduled an appointment with his doctor and to take care of himself first. He says he will. His ex-fiancee has threatened to take his car away which apparently is in her name. Stolen car = felony. Apparetly she’s a high-ranking psychiatrist who clears the president’s detail - something to do at Hanscom, I guess. He says he will expose sex videos or her own text admitting she is “crazy” which could ruin her career if she takes his only form or transportation away.
I know this all sounds f*cked up. Try being his host and listening to this daily. Not sure if anyone had this type of booking before. Seems atypical. We’re hoping he leaves in a week, or sooner, but the job he got at the end of our street doesn’t convince us he’s ready to go anywhere anytime soon. Thoughts? Call to Airbnb? Ride it out until next guest arrives?
