Thread: Do you answer the front door if you're not expecting anyone?

  1. #1

    Default Do you answer the front door if you're not expecting anyone?

    You're at home, maybe alone, maybe with the other half, the kids etc. The front door rings and you're not expecting anyone.

    What do you do?

    Is it normal to panic in this situation for no apparent reason?

    No one ever really knocks my door, but if I'm not expecting anyone then I tend not to bother. It's generally someone trying to get me to complete a survey, donate to charity or change my energy supplier. I used to sneak down the hall and peep through the door to see who was there, and if it didn't look important sneak back up. I tend not to really bother much now. Wasn't a sense of panic, I just don't want to have to deal with some cold calling arse at the door.

    You need a key to get into my stair though so generally I'll know about it if someone is needing to see me before hand.

    I got rid of my house phone because my number was apparently close to a job centre's number and it used to ring on end all day. I hated, and still do hate answering the phone unless I know who it is beforehand.

    I always answer the door (my missus only does if she's expecting someone), and very often just in my pants (to the Jehovahs once, lol). I never answer the home phone though, people I know ring my mobile.

    Don't answer the door and don't pick up the phone cos I'm an antisocial cunt.

    Hardly ever answer my door, my mates know they can just walk in or it would be locked, my chair is near the window so I normally if its some twat selling crap I just tap on the window and shrug my head as if to say what the fuck are you knocking on my door for!

    I always check outside first, sneaky peak through the blinds upstairs...a little part of me panics incase its the police. Then I'm off over the back fence. Not worried about anything else but them, even tho its been years since they've paid me a visit.
