Do you mind unexpected visitors?

I do. Usually I'm not on top of everything like I should. Most of the time I think the house looks messy, so I really don't like unexpected visitors. It's embarassing to let them in. What about you?

  • Yes, I mind. I have a regular routine at home & when someone drops in at nap time I could scream! I think it's rude not to call prior to coming to see if it is OK with the person. Sometimes I turn off my doorbell that goes trough the intercom (when my Son is napping) & just don't answer the door.

  • I do. I like to know if someone is coming. Like is the house was messy or if I had other things planned.

  • I don't like unexpected visitors! I like to now when someone is coming over, so I can make everything look presentable. I am not saying my house is dirty, but I at least want any dishes left in the sink to be done, and the toys to be picked up...oh and the bathroom has to be clean when someone comes over or I have like a panic attack! lol.

  • I dont mind at all! Our house is always open to guests! In fact, most of them dont even knock! The people that come to see us know that houses aren't always spot-free, kids aren't always dressed and clean, and i'm dont always have the time to sit and chat for an hour!

  • I'd rather have some notice, but I have relaxed a lot about how the house looks, etc. I used to stress out about things like that but now they can take it or leave it. The house is always fairly neat.

  • I love unexpected visitors! I manage to keep my house mostly clean and if they come unannounced then they can help me fold laundry while the kids run around. :)

  • That is why we have a locked gate. You have to call to visit.
