“She Slept in our Guest Room and Ruined Our Sheets, It Looked Like a Massacre.”

“She Slept in our Guest Room and Ruined Our Sheets, It Looked Like a Massacre.”


Woman says her sister-in-law is NOT welcome to sleepover if she’s on her period. All because in the past she’s had to clean up the ‘bloody’ mess and she’s sick of it. Is she being too harsh you think?

Writing in to discussion forum Reddit, the woman asked whether she was being unreasonable in asking that her SIL not sleepover at Thanksgiving if she’s on her period.

It may sound harsh but in the past the SIL has left blood stains on the sheets, the mattress and even made a mess in the toilet. Which is all fine and well (kind of) but no attempts were made to tell her hosts or even try and clean it up.

Here’s how the woman described the situation in her post:

“My sister-in-law invited herself to my home to stay for Thanksgiving, but I don’t want her sleeping at my home if she’s on her period. A few times in the past she has come to my home and stayed while she has been on her period. Both times she slept in our guest room and ruined our sheets and mattress pads. It looked like a massacre.”

“To make matters worse, she didn’t tell us; we had to find the disgusting sheets in our laundry and find the blood stains on the mattress pad. Not only that — she has left tampon wrappers and bloody tampons in the toilet without flushing and blood on the toilet and inside of the toilet seat.”

I told my husband to say something to his sister, but he was too embarrassed to say anything. I figured I wouldn’t say anything because she was moving out of the country and l didn’t expect her to visit anymore.

Well she just informed us that she’s coming for Thanksgiving, and I informed her that I don’t want her sleeping over if she’s on her period because the last few times she left a nasty mess while on her period and it was disgusting. She cursed me out and called me a rude bitch and said that’s why no one in her family likes me — they only tolerate me because I’m married to her brother. I told her that’s fine, and I’m not tolerating a grown woman staying in my home that can’t control and clean up after herself while on her period. I understand having heavy periods, but to leave a mess for everyone to see and to clean up is absolutely disgusting. Should I have just kept quiet, or am I the asshole for telling her she can’t come if she’s on her period?”

Wow, ok. That’s a lot to take in. Commenters on Reddit thought so too. In fact the majority of them sided with the woman and agreed that the SIL’s conduct was kind of gross.

Not the asshole — that’s just gross,” one person said.

“I was all ready to jump your ass, but I don’t blame you one little bit. It’s unsanitary and rude for her to do that.”

“Twelve-year-olds who’ve just started their periods can understand wiping up and properly disposing of products. So there’s no reason a grown woman can’t.”

“Two separate issues in my mind. She invited herself. Reason enough to say no. If she won’t take care of herself, and won’t clean up after herself, reason enough to say no. Together, not a chance would I let her stay in my house.”

What do you think? What would you have done in her position?
