DP Daily Prompt: Unexpected Guests
You walk into your home to find a couple you don’t know sitting in your living room, eating a slice of cake. Tell us what happens next.
I was not happy to see an unknown couple in my living room eating a piece of cake. Before I said anything to them, I asked my daughter,if they were her friends.
She told me she didn’t know them either, my question was , “Why did you let them in?”
“They said they are your relatives.”
It was my turn to go back to the room and ask how are they related to me.
Both husband and wife realized I was not happy to see them, the wife came forward and tried to give me a hug, I stepped back a few feet, I looked at her inquiringly, not knowing what to say or do she started sobbing hysterically,I was firm and demanded an answer or else I threatened to call the police.
She began to tell her story, apparently there was some mechanical problem with the flight,the pilot thought it best to make an emergency landing, the airline was unable to provide hotels for the passengers,instead they suggested to get hold of some families they knew and were confident that they could spend the night, the plane would be ready to take off early morning.
I dismissed her story and gave them a few minutes to pack up and leave, it wasn’t easy I had to do it.
Invited guests is fine but uninvited guests no thanks!
Thank you for this post. There are so many different kinds of people in the world.
All good wishes,
Yes it’s so true.
Ah, yes. It is an allegory about how trusting we can be toward untrustworthy people…
Yes Noah you are right.
