    Front Door

    I don't like answering the front door.  When I'm alone, I don't answer unless I'm aware someone is coming over.  If my hubby is home with me, I don't have a problem.  The reason why I don't like answering the door is cause I get anxious.  Where I used to live...

    I'll answer it but I don't like it.

    People who know me know that I prefer they call before they come over. People who don't know me seldom get through my front door.

    When Neighbors Come Knocking.

    The only time I don't like answering the door to my apartment is when I haven't received a call from the main door intercom.  This usually means its my neighbors who are knocking to ask me to take them somewhere, and/or borrow money.  I have written about these neighbors before...

    Stop Knocking On My Door. Geez.

    "Hello, I'm Aiken, and I don't like answering the front door." Lazy people don't like doing things, like having to get up to answer the front door. And that's my problem; if I'm doing something, I'm too lazy to get up to see who's at my door. Some people call it being...

    Knock Knock

    I always dread the knock. I know it's not a friend. I don't have many and no one would come over without calling. It's usually a person trying to sell something and I have no money. I am not just saying that. I mean that. Like today. I put the last 20$ I have in the world in my...

    Very Much So

    I don't know you, I don't wanna talk to you, I don't want you to hear my thoughts because of my telepathic powers I can't control.  So **** the door, the phone, the oven timer....ok maybe don't **** the oven timer but I hate things blaring at me, cause I blare back.

    I Actually Hide

    You can see me sitting in the recliner through the window in the door if you try. This makes me horribly uncomfortable, so I sneak into the kitchen and wait for them to go away. Normally, if we get people at the door they are trying to sell their products or their religion...

    Freak Out

    I just moved to Texas and I don't know anyone, so I get super freak out when someone knocks on my door. I won't look out the peep hole unless it's dark because I know they'll see me looking if there's light in the room. I make sure that door is locked then go hide in my bedroom...

    Much Better Now

    There once was a time when a knock on my front door would send me into a panic fit. It seemed like every time I answered I was getting in trouble for something new. I guess that's what happens when you live in a town house converted into 4 different apartments. Either I was...
