Have you ever encountered anyone this cheeky?

(605 Posts)

Inspired roughly by a couple of threads recently...
I used to have a friend (used to being the operative) who would come round to my house to smoke. Her reason being that she didn't want her house to smell like smoke and she didn't like smoking in the street as she thought it looked 'common' (her words)

The punchline being that I didn't smoke
That friendship ended when I saw the light and realised that she was using me! She was happy enough to make my house stink and I was too polite (at the time) to ask her not to as I thought I was being a welcoming host.

Has anyone encountered anyone with more brass neck than that?

Well I have a confession to make... We had a family day out to a place with a water splash park thing-we didn't realise it was there so we weren't prepared with towels/trunks etc and my ds was running around in his pants.
Eventually he started getting cold and I spotted some children sitting in one of those big human driers..I scooped him up and told him to quickly jump in next to them, saying "go on, in you go, go right to the back and get nice and dry, jump up and down to get warm" etc, all the while smiling at the other children's dad who seemed really unfriendly..
My husband was too far away to say anything but saw it all and was mortified, I died a little when I came back raving about this fabulous drier and he told me they had actually paid to use it blush
I cringe even now thinking about how rude I must have looked blush

In other stories, there was the girl who was sick in a bucket at a house party and refused to clean it, so it sat on the landing for days and eventually was placed on her bed. Not my house thank god.

There was the housemate I also lived with in first year who introduced herself as a Jewish Princess. She was spiteful. One of our other housemates was odd, but a nice man. She hated him. She used to put sugar and salt in his milk every sodding day. Then she put bleach in it. Luckily the silly bitch told me before he drank it. Nasty. She tried to add me on Facebook a couple of years ago. Err, no thanks love. I'm still relieved to be rid of you.

She was also incredibly wealthy and flashy with money, like Bruv. She was nasty.

Oops! If he could have my alarm clock. I said sorry, no, I've got it set for 7,early lecture. Thus was in the days before alarm clocks on phones. He then said "Sista, you iz gettin' up at 7, whereas I is gettin' up at FREE! Therefore maa need is undoubtedly greater than yours innit."

I still said no. When I woke up naturally at 7.40 I found the cheeky twat had nicked it while I was asleep!!

In my first year of university I lived in a house share with virtual strangers (insurance choice so no halls available - we were known as homeless freshers). Anyway, I lived with a load of loons. Each one was cheeky in their own way. The worst was a wannabe gangster known as Bruv. Bruv went to an 18k a year private school where apparently you're guaranteed a minimum amount of A level passes. I had better A levels from my comprehensive which he thought was novel. He moved in slow motion and was always stoned. His room was immaculate, because he left his crap in the living room and kitchen. Once he went away for a long weekend, leaving his washing up all over the living room floor. It was gross. There was loads of it because he always got "baaaaaaare munchies blood". He also emptied his room of cups, etc. While he was away, my one normal housemate and I put all his mess on his bedroom floor. When he got home he went mental. Apparently we had shown baaaaaaare disrespect and he was disgusted by us. He wanted us out of his sight while he sat in the lounge, after bringing all his crap back in there (still not washing it up, dirty bastard). We refused to go to our rooms.

Another time he was going away, he knocked on my door late at night and asked if he

Mils phone broke and asked if she could have ours in mean time (we were moving do it was in storage so not getting used) so leant it to her. Moved house soon after and said can we have it back as she knew it was borrow and not keep and she refused! Wouldnt even give us any money for it so had to fork out for a new house phone!

Have a friend who often invites me over and then hands me an item of clothing and her sewing box with a 'can you just... take the hem up/fix these/make me a...' etc. despite me hinting multiple times that although, yes, I can sew, I hate it when people assume that I enjoy mending their clothes for free because they can't be bothered to learn to do it themselves!

MIL does it too... last year, after 8 years of mending her/FIL/BIL's clothes when we visit 'to give me something to do while I'm sat there', she gave us a homemade advent calendar she'd sewn herself, very professional finish. A little confused I said 'Oh! But I thought you couldn't sew?'. Turns out she can, quite well actually!

I just remembered another, even worse one about BIL.
We moved abroad and rented out our house. BIL was getting married so we told him that himself and SIL could rent our house from us. We charged £600 per month and we told them that they could have a month free as a wedding present and then pay £500 per month.
So the moved in and about 4 months after the wedding we came home for a visit and stayed with them. It was after January. We spent the evening chatting and they told us all about their first Christmas and what presents they had bought each other and how they had got SKY installed and that it had been hard getting into a routine with budgeting and paying their bills but that they had been managing.
Next day I went to the bank, (this was in the days before internet banking so I couldn't check the balance easily) to discover that they had paid 1 months rent and missed the next 2. Our mortgage payments had bounced and we were facing charges.
I just couldn't believe that they had the cheek to not pay, not tell us and then spend the evening chatting and still not mention it.
Then on the Last day of our visit, BIL went to work and came home to say that the building was locked up and that the company had folded so we had no job. I didn't care, I said get the money or else so they came up with most of it and paid off the rest in dibs and drabs. Years later we found out that they had borrowed the first amount from MIL and I doubt if they ever paid her back,
They were disasterous with money, BIL still is. MIL often bailed him out. When he split up with his wife he lived with us for a year and paid no rent at all. We were mugs for letting him away with it.

Years ago in the days of dial up internet access we got a really big phone bill. I requested an itemised bill and on examination it turned out that someone had been in our house using the internet during the day, Monday to Friday for weeks.
We couldn't understand it. I studied the bill a bit more and tried to remember what had been going on during that time. I remembered that one day I had been at home sick and BIL had let himself into our house with a key, (that I didn't know he had). He had a computer with him, one of the big tower computers of years ago. I got out of bed to find him in the hall and he stuttered some excuse about dropping off something for DH and he left.
Anway DH confronted him and he admitted that he had been coming to our house everyday instead of going to work and using the internet, except he'd been using his own computer and attaching it up to our monitor.
Needless to say he lost that job and only paid some of the phone bill. The sad part is that his wife had just had their first baby. The dates he started coming to our house were just days after the baby's birth.
A few years later he stayed in our house while we were on holiday and ran up another phone bill, but this time used our computer so.
He has a long history of porn addiction and had a number of cyber affairs before his long suffering wife left him for another man.

I'm loving this thread. Mexican house man is the winner but there's some right cheeky buggers about!!!
My sil used to be really cheeky a few years back. Always pleading poverty and then borrowing money which she would avoid ever paying back. All this despite going on holidays, new cars etc. I was a student with baby and working bank shifts and we were utterly skint!
The final straw was her sil and bil inheritited about £50k from his gm. They were super flash with the cash for themselves-not so much as a thank you to us or an offer to repay any money. Got home from work one day to find dh worrying. She told dh that she owed money for gas, electric and council tax and if we didn't help them out the bailiffs would be called. I told him if he gave her a penny I'd divorce him. It took them about 10 months to spend all the money with nothing to show for it. I know it's mean but when the house got repossessed I wasnt even slightly sorry for them.grin

tahunny I'm so sorry about your loss too. The behaviour of your bro was unbelievable.

BIL is a lazy arse. His wife, SIL is in denial about this.

Examples- SIL serves his dinner up, sits down to eat.
BIL:"er tomato ketchup?!"
SIL gets up to get it

BIL finishes food. Silently waves plate near SIL. SIL gets him seconds

The word please or thank you never uttered.

In restaurant. BIL orders something he is allergic to. This is SIL fault apparently.

No point trying to tell her, she gets defensive if you mention it.

Took me all of four days to read all these but wow what utter cheeky bastards there are in this world one of which is my brother!

Last year my dd was stillborn at 8months. No idea how or why this happened. At the time I was still in work and hadnt started mat leave. My work colleagues sent a lovely bunch of flowers that were delivered to my mothers house.
I am not a flower person, they make me sneeze and have itchy eyes, so I said that my mother could keep them as she is an avid flower lover and it seemed a waste to bin them. No sooner had brother heard about these he took it upon himself to stake claim to them! He has never had a job and rinses everything possible out of anyone he can, so I told him fuck no, they are not leaving mothers house.
Two days later he turned up again informing mother hed just called by to pick up flowers because his new gf was waiting in the car for the surprise he had promised her. He told her that said surprise had been delivered to parents house. My mother being ground down over days of this shit told him to take them.not being such a push over, having gone through one of the hardest things in my life I simply told him to get to fuck. Apparently he had promised gf surprise flowers and now by not giving them he was going to look stupid.
My mother just wants an easy quiet lifeand brother takes this as a way to ask and ask and go on with himself until he gets what he wants. Needless to say, he left very pissed off with no flowers. Piss taking bastard.

My sister goes on cruises about 5 times a year. She used to magnanimously invite our mum (then in her 70s) along, as otherwise mum wouldn't have a holiday. (Mum pays for herself!) There are then 6 of them - sis, her dh and 3 dc, so 2 cabins; sis and dh and 1 dc in 1, mum and the other 2 dc in the other.

Sis and dp would regularly disappear at 7pm for hours ( Found out they were in the casino.) so mum would look after the dc and put them to bed . ...

When mum stopped going on cruises (due to age) luckily for sis the dc stopped going too (ages 15 and 16 - she'd leave them here alone for 2 weeks, facebooking nightly to 'check they were ok' shock) Mum would then have to feed them every day and go round to theirs to lock them in at night.

Sis then has a go at mum because she'd 'allowed' the dc to have boyfriends/girlfriends in ! (whilst she was parenting from the caribbean)

My sister is a toxic, selfish, entitled bitch.

SIL who lived away had 2 dogs.
When she stayed with MIL she would bring the dogs with her.
MIL would moan about the dog hairs so she decided to get a Dyson.
She asked us if we would take her shopping for one.
So a couple of months later we walked into MILs house and there is this old hoover in the hallway.
OH said whats happened to the Dyson.
MIL had told SIL on the phone all about the Dyson and how good it was etc so next time she visited she brought her old hoover with her and said she needed the Dyson because the dogs did live with her.
My OH wanted to phone SIL and give her what for but MIL said not to upset her.

Not in the same league as most of these, but asking a flat mate if they wanted a drink as I was boiling the kettle, to be directed to the coffee beans and fecking grinder to make them a gourmet coffee from scratch was pretty galling... (I feigned ignorance, made my Kenco and scuttled back to my room...)

I don't really understand the one about the NDN who objected to getting builders' dust all over her car. I think that would piss most people off, especially if they've just had their car washed! Asking them to do their drilling round the other side of the house sounds like a reasonable request to me. Or am I missing something?

Wow. It's taken me all morning to read this. Can't believe the cheek of some people

Cheeky feckers! I have one that happened to my dp.
So a few years ago just before I met my dp his friend was robbed and feeling unsafe and insecure in his flat so my dp let him move in to his 2 bed flat with him. This was a good arrangement as they were both students and pretty skint. Anyway time goes on with them both mainly living off student loans and my dp had a weekend bar job but money was tight. They did end up going half's on a dishwasher.
Eventually they started to get behind on the rent and then my dp had to quit college and his job due to long term disability. The friend also gives up on college without my dp to motivate him so no longer had student loans and wouldn't get a job. The friend rarely did any housework including using the dishwasher and eventually he pretty much stopped washing himself.
All the while the debt piles up and my dp has to work out a deal with the council where he'd pay off rent arrears in installments. By this point my dp is using his disability benefits to pay for all the bills including food for him and friend.
This went on for another year until me and dp decided we wanted to live together. We told friend he'd have to move out as we wouldn't have enough to support all of us and it would cut down dp's benefit if there was three of us. We gave him a deadline. And then a second deadline. When the third deadline came and went dp's mum had to come up and kick him out. Told him that dp would be committing benefit fraud if he didn't move out by the Friday. He finally left and said he'd get his stuff on the Monday. We went and stayed with my family for the weekend and came home Sunday night. At half 12 at night we heard a key in the door and it was friend! He'd been staying there all weekend and then waited till it was to late to kick him out to return on the Sunday!
We did finally get him out but after bumming around friends houses he finally got a flat right near ours. The cheekiest part was when he kept going on and on about his part of the dishwasher. We ignored him till he finally asked us for his half which was £200. My dp told him he'd give him £200 when friend paid the £1000 he owed for his half of the rent never mind all the food and other bills!!! He still freeloads of dp getting our old furniture and white goods and what have you. Really winds me up!

Misty I had some friends (married couple) that I used to go clubbing and an occasional holiday with. She always used to brag she 'didn't do handbags' or carry a purse but was quite happy to avail herself of stuff I used to carry in my backpack... and as a consequence never bought a round. Rounds used to be her DH, me, DH etc.. one year we met up with another girl and she took me aside to query they no round buying woman. With rounds at 20 euro a time it became a huge pisstake.

She thought of themselves as 'one' and once tried to divide a taxi to the airport between four (as 'they' were 'one') when there were 5 of us, luckily one friend quickly quoshed this... still didnt put her hand in her pocket when on holiday though.

a close relative is cheeky. he takes advantage of my dm. used to stay alot when we were kids and eat our food but never contributed or brought say a gift for my parents

my db was a student he went to stay with them with his gf. They lived abroad. the relative with his family left my db alone in house over Christmas while they went to stay with another relative. they left no food for them and complained to my dm that db made no contribution (students)

my gm used to extol his virtues and it was always poor ....,. syndrome.

dm frequently supported relatives ex wife and his dc having them to stay, buying lunch etc

roll on about 20 years' dm with new dp living in dps house. relative came to stay bringing new partner. dm's dp was not impressed when they kept eating his food, hardly replaced anything, made lunch for days out etc, never asking, helping themselves to alcohol.

dm hinted that as she would be out, could they sort their own evening meal hoping they would dine out or buy food, but no they helped themselves to frozen pizza.

her dp furious but dm wouldn't confront relative.

next time he came he ate all the cake without asking and took over tv.

dm said something tactful and relative stormed out. she tried to contact him and sent cards etc.

a year later he condescended to contact her saying he would overlook the petinesshmm
