Re: Would it bother you if..
I think I would flat out tell him (or have DH tell him) that we are doing XY and Z on those days and he is going to need to rent a car. I have similar issues with my FIL, and have found I need to be direct and clear with him. I can't tell him not to visit, but I can say that when he does... This or that needs to happen. I usually tell DH and make him talk to his dad. That said, it means DH and I need to be on the same page.
