What is something a guest in your house did that made your jaw drop? How did you react?

My son had a friend over; he was 10 at the time. They were playing video games in his room. I opened the door to see if they wanted some lunch and saw sunflower seeds all over the floor, the bed and the TV stand. At first I thought my son or his friend had spilled the bag, but then I actually picked one up off the floor. They were wet, sucked on, chewed up casings of the sunflower seeds! His friend was eating the seeds and spitting the shells all over his room! Talk about jaw hitting the floor!
I looked at that kid and asked, “do you spit those on the floor in your house?” He said no. So I replied, “So, don't be spitting on my floor? Now, pick every single one of them up and clean the TV stand! We don't spit inside and we certainly don't spit chewed up food all over!”
