Call first!

Do you mind if people just drop by your home unannounced? Would you prefer they call?

  • I have been known not to answer the door for drop-ins. It is rude and inconsiderate..and that goes for family too.

  • I hate when people do that, especially if I'm having a lazy day and have the place a mess lol

  • I don't care if they just drop in. but they better be prepared for me to not be home, or to be on my way out, or to ask them to leave etc.

  • I swear we have a revolving front door. You never know who is going to show up at our house. Mostly DH's buddies. We don't mind at all. Most weekends there is at least one evening where there is a bunch of people over and we have a bonfire or just hang out.

  • I don't mind drop ins. But, if I'm in the middle of something (cleaning, cooking, whatever) and you show up unannounced, be prepared to help! If you call, I'll be expecting you and be done. If not, then I'm not gonna stop what I'm doing and you'll be asked to help. :-)
    Hardly anyone drops by without calling anymore. Guess they didn't like doing the dishes or sweeping! :-)
