Do you find it annoying when unannounced visitors arrive at your house?

Would you prefer they call at least 15 mins before arriving? How do you feel about it?


"With modern, hectic lifestyles not everyone appreciates receiving unexpected guests who can inconveniently hinder progress on work and chores. It can be embarrassing when your home is untidy or if you're caught relaxing in your comfortable, but shapeless and shabby, old jogging bottoms. Miss Manners, from the MSN lifestyle website says it goes against etiquette to turn up unannounced, which dates back to the introduction of telephones and the decline in the employment of butlers. Telephones enabled visitors to call in advance, which was even more important when there was no butler to tell the visitor, with authority, that his employers were not at home."

I want way more than 15 minutes! I want at least a two day notice! lol. One, I tend to walk around the house in less clothing than I would if there were people coming over. Two, I like my house looking nice when people come over, and while pregnant it just usually doesn't look very nice at random times. Three, I like looking nice, having a shower and my hair not a mess. Four, I've been really sick in this pregnant, I don't like having to suddenly try and take my head out of the toliet to answer the door and try to avoid them catching a whiff of puke breath! lol

 So yes, I find it very annoying when unannounced people come over.
