  • I absolutely hate it when people stop by unannounced. Common courtesy- call before you come over damn it.

  • Oh yes definite. Also, I can be up ALL day but the minute I sit down at the computer somebody will walk in.

  • I don't answer the door if I am not expecting anyone.

  • Yup. Happens here too. When I was on bedrest while pregnant, and then the first 2 months after my daughter was born, my house literally almost never got cleaned, yet people just came by the flock to visit. But now that I'm back to cleaning my house every single day, NO ONE EVER COMES OVER!! Even if I invite them!! I'm gonna stop cleaning my house just so people will start to visit again, lol.

  • People seem to ring my bell when I've just finished working out and am strutting around with my hair in a greasy ponytail, sweat dried all over me, wearing nothing but a pair of short gym shorts and a sports bra. Usually with dirty breakfast dishes in the sink and a cat furball coughed up on the carpet that I haven't had a chance to clean up. I am like the other mom who said I HATE when people stop by without phoning--come on, everyone has a cell couldn't just give me quick heads up? More often though, it's salespeople, which is even worse.
