'The Rules of House-Sitting' Shows Hilariously Hopeless Home Situations

 - Oct 12, 2011

House-sitting for a friend often has its benefits, like unlimited movies on-demand and 500 channels of digital cable, but if you're not careful it could end in disaster, as seen in 'The Rules of House-Sitting.' Created by Christie Young of, the illustrated guide takes you through the steps of a house-sitting experience gone wrong, starting with inevitably forgetting your contact solution and socks at home before leaving for the weekend.

I'm glad to see I'm not the only one who has "borrowed" a friend's dress while they're out, without asking, only to spill something on it, as one of the steps in this guide illustrates. Like all of Christie Young's work, 'The Rules of House-Sitting' is full of hilariously honest situations that often make for awkward scenarios at the time, but are always funny to look back on.

Check out 'The Rules of House-Sitting' for a laugh, and keep these steps in mind next time you're considering potential house-sitters!
