Overstaying your welcome…..

Always be wary of overstaying your welcome.

As the Italians say, ‘L’ospite è come il pesce: dopo tre giorni puzza’, the guest is like a fish: after three days he smells bad:

desconvidar (Portuguese) to withdraw an invitation

il est comme un cheveu dans la soupe (French) he is not welcome; he has come at an awkward time (literally, he is like a hair in the soup)

pudyapudya (Tsonga, South Africa) to go away because one is shown one is not wanted

ngloyor (Indonesian) to go without saying goodbye

apagavelas (Caribbean Spanish) the last person to leave a party
