I am indignant.
Let me tell you why:
I went out of town over the weekend. While I was gone, Tom's sister came over to spend the weekend with him. They were going to see Batman and then Tom was going to take her to buy a vacuum for her new apartment.
It was wicked hot in NJ this weekend, so Tom put in the air conditioners, one downstairs in the living room and one upstairs in our bedroom.
Before I left, I tidied up the guest room, removed the piles of clean laundry from the guest bed and reminded Tom that since we don't have AC in the guest room he should bring up a fan for his sister.
Last night, after I got home and before I went upstairs to got to bed, I watched a bit of the ESPY's with Tom. During commercials we talked about our respective days.
It was then that he casually dropped a bombshell.
He told me that he let his sister sleep in our bed Saturday night, while he took the couch.
I was dumbfounded.
Firstly because I was sure that he didn't think to change the sheets and secondly that he would allow ANYBODY to sleep in OUR bed ESPECIALLY since I wasn't home.
And more to the point, you would think his sister, at 23 years of age, would have the delicacy of mind to thank him for the offer but refuse because 1) there weren't clean sheets on the bed and 2) that is the bed that her brother shares with his wife.
So after driving four hours in a rainstorm and just wanting to crawl into bed and go to sleep, I had to change the sheets because there was no way I was going to sleep in a bed with used sheets and a pillow on which she put her sweaty, greasy head! My pillow. MY PILLOW!!!! I don't even like to share my orange mug with my own husband, much less my pillow with his sister.
Needless to say, Tom got an earful and chose to spend the night on the couch!
I will say this about him though, he gets points for being generous and thoughtful of his sister's comfort.
Now tell me truthfully, did I overreact when I went stomping upstairs, hollering loud enough for the neighbors to hear that he had NO RIGHT TO LET HER SLEEP IN OUR BED AND WHAT IS THE POINT OF HAVING A GUEST ROOM AND ME MAKING UP THE BED IF HE IS GOING TO LET HER SLEEP IN OUR BED AND NOW I'M GOING TO HAVE TO CHANGE THE SHEETS?
