Student Shocked to Find Kitchen Destroyed by House Guest in Viral Video

A university student shared in a now-viral video the huge mess her roommate's house guest made in their kitchen.

The video, which serves as a primary example of how not to behave in someone else's home, was posted to TikTok on Monday by Maya (@letapayam) and has already amassed more than 3.6 million views and over 231,000 likes.

"POV: I went to put the feta away at 3 a.m. and came down to this," read the video's text overlay.

In the video, Maya pans her camera around to show viewers that her kitchen has been absolutely trashed. In addition to cabinets being left ajar, the walls, counters and floors are covered in various sauces and foods. Additionally, cartons of milk, juice and condiment bottles are lying open and empty on the floor.

Near the end of the video, Maya points her phone's camera up to show that someone managed to get something resembling ketchup or cocktail sauce on the ceiling.

"You thought that was all," Maya said in the post's comments section, alluding to an even bigger mess.

In a follow-up video with over 699,000 views, Maya showed viewers that her backyard was covered in glass.

"Who knows how to vacuum the grass?" she asked in the post's caption.

Hundreds of commenters theorized that either a bear or Storm Eunice were to blame for the mess. But Maya confirmed that the mess was, in fact, made at the hands of a guest.

"My housemate decided to invite two guests to stay over after a little drinking night out at the pub," she explained in a third viral video, adding that one of the guests had previously been kicked out over an issue involving "house cleanliness."

When visiting someone's home, it's proper etiquette to take extra care with common areas, Reader's Digest said.

"Be especially careful to clean up after yourself in the kitchen, put down the toilet seat, turn the lights off when you leave a room, and close drawers and cabinets after you open them," the magazine advised. "There's nothing worse than having to constantly clean up after your guests, so these small acts will show that you're considerate of your host's space."

Similarly, the Emily Post Institute said that good house guests "[o]ffer to help out, especially in the kitchen."

On the subject of having house guests in college, ThoughtCo said: "Ask your guest to clean up after herself, and if she doesn't, do so yourself as soon as possible."

Commenters were shocked to learn that Maya's kitchen was destroyed by a visitor, and argued that the roommate who invited the guest should be the one to clean up the mess.

"Their guest, their mess. If they invited that person over they're responsible for them. I'm so sorry this happened to you. Please report this incident," wrote honey.

Leen asked: "Who raised this guest?"

"The housemate who brought the friend is 100 percent responsible...that person and his/her friend need to clean up the mess or I would complain," added another TikTok user.
