Drop-In Visitors?

Ok, what is the deal with this? I grew up learning that you don't drop in unexpectedly, and you ESPECIALLY don't do this and expect to come inside and hang around a while. I've always thought it was common courtesy to call before you come by, unless you're super close or something. Would you ever drop in unexpectedly on a coworker whose family you have never met, without calling first?

The only people i do that to is my mom. she lives right up the road and usually expects to see us sometime during the day other than that i wouldnt dream of it. I find that so rude and have had people do that to me to many times. When we used to live in our apartment it would get insane. we were really close with most of our neighbors so very often they would just drop in unexpectedly. Even if i really liked the people i felt like i had to rearrange my whole day because they decided to come by and hang out.

 No way in hell.

I'll call you and we'll make plans first if I'm coming over.

I expect the same courtesy.

 I don't even just drop in on my parents. I think it's rude for anyone to go to visit someone without giving at least a little bit of notice.

No, and I wouldn't open the door if one of dh's coworkers did that to us. Just because you're home doesn't mean you have to open the door.
