AIBU to want visitors to serve themselves cornflakes by pouring them into the bowl and not by plunging their (possibly unwashed) hands into the box and filling their bowls handful-by-handful? I haven't said anything, because I'm far too polite, but it's put me off eating cereal and I will want to throw away the rest of the box when these people finally leave.

I think give them a demo; if they're here to learn English it counts as a lesson in British culture. Almost.

Ah the joys of foreign students staying. We went for an older guy last time (in his 60s) as we thought he may be better house trained than the kids.

He ate a jar of marmalade every four days. After a fortnight with us he still needed us to get him water as he couldn't 'remember' where the glasses were despite us telling him lots. And he spent over an hour in the bathroom every morning. His stay coincided with my worse period of morning sickness and we only have one bathroom, so it was a bit of a challenging fortnight for me!

Sadly, both our spare rooms are being redecorated so we can't take any students for a while.

The money does comes in handy though.

Any way, back to your students, I would certainly bin the corn flakes once they've left.
