Married couples everywhere bemoan having their in-laws to stay, but this woman has more reason than most to dread their next visit.
The Mumsnet user, believed to live somewhere in Britain, blasted her father-in-law after left the bathroom in a "disgusting" state when he came for the weekend, scattering beard trimmings in the sink and toenail clippings in the shower tray.
He also left excrement smeared on the towels and sponges, and urine on the toilet, she added.
The stomach-turning post sparked dozens of responses from dozens of sympathetic users while others shared horror stories of their own unhygienic families.
One wrote: "God, that's utterly vile. I second being totally blunt with him and making it clear that he's not welcome if it continues."
Another agreed: "There's untidy, and then there's downright disgusting."
A third added: "This is grim. Yuck. I'm going to go and give my toilet a therapeutic bleach now."
Several suggested confronting the father-in-law, or banning him from the house completely. "Tell them to stay in a hotel next time," said one user. "Feel sick for you."
Another urged the poster to be more upfront. "It would make me so angry, even though I avoid confrontation I would be saying... 'would you use some toilet paper when you've been as the state of the bed sheets are absolutely disgusting with skid marks, and I'm not prepared to deal with them'."
Other users had similar stories to share about their own in-laws.
"Didn't experience the shower one as they just don't wash when here but the missing when weeing, s*** all over the loo," one woman wrote. "I could go on, but won't."
Another woman had issues with her friend's partner. "A friend's bf would leave the toilet blocked up with poo every time he accompanied her to my house," she explained.
