You're not supposed to use metal utensils on Teflon products. Once you damage the surface, the material is no longer safe to cook on. There's an obvious X as well as other scrapes on the pan. We weren't trying to swindle you. That's what a security deposit is for.
Yes, you left leftover food in the oven. You also left leftover plates of food in fridge. I would call these scraps, not "gifts." The coffee was also used. I do not expect gifts from our guests in any manner but please do not try to play off your leftover goods as such especially after leaving a heaping sink of dishes overflowing onto the counter and an overflowing trashcan sitting in the middle of the kitchen floor. Due to the same extreme circumstances we were stuck in Pennsylvania for a week and your gifted leftovers and trash were rotting by the time we got home - ready to attract bugs and rodents. You left the day you were supposed to leave, you weren't rushed out of the city. I'm sure Sandy did not make you destroy our pan.
Additionally, the Dominican candles were previously burned, sitting around the bed, already used to seduce your woman. There was nothing especially "Dominican" about them either. I could have gotten them at any corner store in Brooklyn. I would suggest you don't send emails to other potential hosts about how romantic your weekend sleeping in their bed is going to be: Too Much Information.
Don't leave your new-age altruism notes for us if you're just going to use it as blackmail. Don't expect us to give separate reviews for all 30 bars and restaurants you send to us in an email list. I'm sorry you were confused as to why we didn't. We are here to sweep, mop, scrub, and give you clean sheets and keys to our apartment. We are not your personal assistants like the personal chauffeur that dropped you off calling you "Sir." Don't judge our character if you don't want us to judge yours.
