5 Things You Can Do When You Get Unsolicited Visits From People

July 7, 2021

Don’t you just hate it when people show up at your house unannounced? They’re not paying your house rent, but don’t respect your personal space enough to call beforehand. Your feelings are valid.

Here are 5 things you can do when next this happens.

1. Phone a friend

Have a friend fake-call you so you’d have an excuse to leave the house. Desperate times call for desperate measures. Just make sure your friend is a sabi person, if not, this plan will flop.

2. Organise a low-budget Escape Room

To make it more fun, swallow the key so your visitor can’t escape. Next time they will think twice about visiting you unannounced.

3. Bring out dirty clothes for them to join you in washing

Since they think they can show up at will, they should kuku help you stay productive.

4. Play hide and seek

When they knock, find somewhere to hide and pray your neighbors don’t koba you.

5. Give them beans to pick

They’ll love this one after all it involves food. Especially those who say they’re bored. What a fun way to kill boredom.

If none of these work, just change your address and let them keep visiting the old house.
