#38: An International Incident
Most people sign up to be Airbnb hosts without expecting to bail their guests out of jail. That’s almost what happened to this poor woman. One of the first bookings for her London flat was for two American teenagers. Their overprotective parents had booked the space for them. So far, so good. To her surprise, she got a frantic 2 am call from one of the girls saying they had been arrested.
Fearing the worst, she drove over to the police station and called their parents to let them know what was going on. When she arrived, the police told him that the two Americans had broken into his neighbor’s apartment and completely trashed the place! The worst part is the parents never even apologized and tried to get her to pay for the damages! Sheesh.
