Response from Barbara G.:

Hi Misty,
Sorry if I exhausted you with a quick orientation when you first arrived, but I must say you both seemed quite animated when telling me about your respective work situations in Denver. Seemed to me that you were both up for chatting. I'm pretty good at sensing when guests feel uncomfortable, so I guess you were good at hiding it. It's a good thing you had not just flown from Europe! I was glad that you then both still had enough energy to go out to get food and walk around a bit on your first evening. Perhaps you got a second wind.
I can see how it is just as well that I organize my days and nights so that I can leave the common area entirely to my guests in the mornings. I had informed you that I do, in fact, also live here in my home, but I would have been totally fine if you had simply told me right away that you preferred to have no contact. I certainly don't have to touch base with my guests to see how they're doing if this is not what they wish, but then again, most guests would find it odd if I didn't. Too bad you didn't feel comfortable enough to let me know. Oh, well, just a few small tips for any future trips you may make with Airbnb.
Wishing you both well,
Barbara

Response from Barbara G.:

Oh, Jochem, I am sorry if I insulted you; however, the wet towel, socks, and other itms having travelled with you from Toronto, simply made for an impossible odour for me to deal with -- something that I have never been presented with before. I have always asked guests to leave their new laundry for me outside my door. I have never had an issue with this in the past. I don't think that asking you to take your rank-smelling laundry that you had brought from your previous location to a commercial laundry was unreasonable. And you know I was happy to do Noor's travelling laundry the night you arrived -- a small detail you have failed to mention. We could have discussed dealing with further laundry while you were here, rather than your sharing the matter publicly after the fact. It doesn't make me look good, and it certainly doesn't make you look good -- and the fact that you left out certain details so that others get only your side of the issue. I am disappointed that you would do this; after all, we did seem to have a good rapport, and you could tell that I am clearly approachable. Each time I saw the two of you, you seemed satisfied and pleased; little did I know that you were still seething over the smelly laundry incident.
I am also disappointed that you focus on this 'disappointment' rather than saying something about my lengthy e-mails to you regarding your time in Vancouver, and how you might best spend it. I also find it remiss of you not to mention the fine breakfasts you were able to enjoy each morning, and how I always asked you how your day had gone, and how everything was for you. This would have been the occasion on which to discuss further laundry with me, for example.
Again, I am sorry if I have harmed your dignity. And I am sorry that this is what you chose to stress as a rather larger detail than smaller. I am especially disappointed, since I enjoyed the outgoing and cheerful disposition you and Noor have. You are young and bright, Jochem -- next time, discuss your guest problems with your host, please.
I would like to restate that laundry is 'free' and that the service is also free -- within reason.
Again, I wish you and Noor happy travels and happy days ahead. :)
