WT?? Do they think that you are dogs??? My mom has more house rules that Joan Crawford, but we're allowed on the furniture!
What a super opportunity for some passive-aggressive moves! Since they obviously can't afford TP ;0) go out & buy them a ton of toilet paper (get a big Costco batch) and put some old towels down on the couch "in case we forgot and sat there by mistake"! I have a whole host of "special" things you can do- oops, how DID that dead spider get into your sugar bowl? I once had a landlord that was antagonizing me. We shared a buiding. I got into his powdered laundry detergent & replaced it with plaster of Paris. Juvenile behavior, yes, but the belly laughs I get out of it to this day bring me much joy!
When you get your house, make sure there's a big basket of TP in the bathroom & invite them to sit on your sofa.
I was staying alone @ my mom's while she was visiting her sister. She has ONE kitchen towel for hands ONLY and ONE for dishes ONLY (since your hands touch the towel while you're drying the dish, I don't get it) and all overhead lights must be turned OFF once you have entered a room. She has lots more, and I had fun while she was away!
