What Really Happened When I Rented Out My Apartment on Airbnb

(Un)Welcome Mats

A few years ago, I was getting a lot of mis-delivered mail meant for a local judge, so when I had accumulated a big batch, I decided to swing by her house and drop off her mail. I was immediately won over by the judge's door mat, which simply said "Come Back With a Warrant."

You can buy the High Cotton doormat for $15.99, and that's not the only (un)welcome mat I've stumbled upon lately. Here are two more funny ways for guests to wipe their feet.

The ingenious Come In/Go Away Doormat (about $30) projects a different message depending on which way you turn it.

One more, so

I love the color palette on this playful Chiasso Private Doormat ($28), which should make guests smile even as you're shooing them away.

i love these! it reminds me of nights in college when we'd had too much to drink and would steal all our neighbor's cute doormats. (pathetic, i know.) my roommate got a great one that was like the "come in/go away" on, but it said deja vu!

Wouldn't the welcome mat that offered a friendly "come in" to guests as they walked into your house also say, rather rudely, "go away" as they left? Because wouldn't it be upside down on the way out of the house?

Those are great. My ex husband had a mat that had a big tree with a ton of falling leaves around it. It said, "Make like a tree and leave." I thought it was hilarious.

WOW whoever designed the second one is clearly a genius. . .Visual antigrams are so fascinating, but notoriously difficult to create, especially when meaning clever opposites such as this!

Does the 'come in/go away' mat come with a remote, so I can turn it, depending on who is coming up the walkway? LOL If so, I want one just for my mother-in-law! *snicker*
