I just had some acquiantances of ours show up completely unexpected.  

I was expecting a nice quiet day today.  I had to work this morning a bit but thankfully I was able to do it at home.  I was just pouring my second cup of coffee when I hear a knock at the front door.  I answered and there they were smiling.  They wanted to drop by to wish us a happy holidays.  It's called text message, facebook or a phone call people!  You don't just show up unannounced!  They were here for almost 2 hours.  Not only did that take away from our regular schedule but it also set LO's nap time off.  


Do you show up unannounced?

especially because everyone who knows me knows my feelings on the subject as far as just showing up. now, ive had ppl say well what if its an emergency when whoever shows up, how would you know if you wont open the door.....common sense...someone just dropping by will knock or ring the bell a few times, someone with an emergency is gonna be beating the door down, hollerin and doing EVERYTHING they can to get your attention.

I show up at friends' house unannounced once in a while - to drop off or pick up something while I'm out running errands.  I don't expect to be invited in and surely don't invite myself in.  If fact, I don't expect them to be home or answer the door.

I would ONLY go to an acquaintances unannouced if I had a specific, valid reason.  I can't recall doing it anytime recently.

I can't imagine letting an acquaintance into my house w/o a specific, valid reason.

Doesnt bother me. I can either not answer the door or tell them I am on my way out. Most everyone who would come to visit is welcome regardless.

Nope. Never. I hate that! I will NOT open my door if you show up unannounced. I don't care if my car is in the driveway and I am home.
