Carolyn Hax: After this nightmare, he’s not welcome back here
DEAR CAROLYN: My husband’s brother has left after another visit, and I would appreciate tips on how to tell him, when he asks to visit again, that we love him but he’s not welcome back unless some things change drastically.
He never visited us until we moved to a cool city with lots to do. Now he has come twice, and we don’t want a third. He’s immature and self-centered, but I wasn’t prepared for what a bad houseguest he is.

The first trip he just sat back expectantly when the check arrived, until we finally had to tell him we could not afford to pay for everything. He only wants to do what he wants to do, making faces and being passive-aggressive at our suggestions. He doesn’t pick up after himself, he drinks a lot. You get the idea.
