Don't overstay your welcome

Withdraw thy foot from thy neighbour's house; lest he be weary of thee, and so hate thee.
Proverbs 25:17

I've been taught the concept of not overstaying my welcome, but didn't realize it was from the Bible.  It makes me think of one of my childhood friends.  They had a neighbor that was always at their house.  She was sweet, and they liked her - but they dreaded her too because of her continuous presence.
