Eugenia, I apologize for my lack of tea-obviously I didn't realize the box was next to empty. Am buying another box forthwith!

Response from Lauren:

Hi David,

I am sorry you were so disappointed with your stay at Our Humble Abode. In answer to your complaints:
I was puzzled as to why you would want the sheets changed after the first night but wasn't going to get personal. I have NEVER, would NEVER, put unwashed sheets on the guest bed! If you could smell body odor it is probably because I use unscented laundry detergent. The ones I replaced them with would have been washed in exactly the same way and I assume they didn't smell bad to you. Perhaps I just need to retire that first set from over-use? I just wish you just said something to me instead of writing something so denigrating here. There is no closet in the room-I can't help that and no one has ever asked for one or complained of the lack of one. There is a rack hanging on the door for whatever one might wish to hang on it. As for the possessions in the drawer, they weren't mine (it turns out they were my brother's and he failed to remove them when he left from his visit) and I had no idea they were in there. When you arrived I pointed out that the handrail moves but is completely attached and safe. I have lived in my house for 18 years and it has never been a problem except two years ago when an airbnb guest while horsing around with their companion broke one of the hinges. It was repaired long ago and is in perfect working order. As for my lack of professionalism, hosting through airbnb is not my profession, only a little extra income to help pay college costs for my daughter. I work 60 hours a week at my small business and this one time I failed to communicate something in a timely manner. Usually check out time is discussed when guests arrive but I didn't have anyone coming right after you at the time so it didn't come up. I got my other booking late during your stay and hadn't seen you in the interim. As I recall I apologized profusely for the short notice I gave you and felt awful about it but it had to be.

All best,
