I Think You Should Leave

I Think You Should Leave

We all want to be hospitable. We don’t want to come across as rude. We don’t want to hurt anybody’s feelings. But, sometimes we’re prisoners of our own manners and our politeness can turn deadly. And end... badly. 
 
We’ve all been there. You’re invited to stay with an old weird friend and you should have said “Thanks, but no thanks” and bailed. You realise too late that the kid you were going to let stay with you because his whole previous family died mysteriously is obviously evil. You take one look at the clearly murder-friendly house you inherited, the castle full of suspiciously seductive people with pointy teeth, or the small town full of rednecks your car runs out of gas in and should have said “You know what? I’ll get a hotel”. Or maybe a stranger or two turned up at your doorstep, or some killer gnomes crashed your birthday party, and you found yourself wishing you had just politely, yet firmly, asked them to turn around and move on.
 
Well, next time you are invited to go somewhere you don’t think you should, or someone suss is playing on your kindness to outstay a welcome or take advantage of your civility, remember our advice - before someone ends up getting hurt or ends up getting put in the ground: “I think you should leave.” This is a season where nobody heeds that advice and look what happens to them.
