welcome homegirl! see, that's how i saw mrs. bowers. i think she wanted to have her cake and eat it, too. be the boss, but be the guest. i think you hit it on the head. my guess is that by day 3 of her imposing her rules, the pileks were just done with her. yeah, it was rude to not have considered her with the chair thing, and i agree that jurek is a bit of a jerk, but i know i would have a difficult time having a loud, aggressive woman in my home, too. even if it were just for a week. i don't know... i just know she rubbed me the wrong way. even worse than jurek did.
