Oh dear, it sounds like I've overstayed my welcome...

It does come off a bit rude, doesn't it?

Yes, unless they accept the other correct translation, which is "They ask me to come home"...

How do you distinguish if they're asking one to come home or go home?

With that sentence on it's own, both are valid interpretations.

In the real world, the context of who "they" are (and where they are) would make it clear whether you were coming or going.

In other words "They ask me to come home" should be correct right? Reporting.
