    All criminal behaviour has in common this- it is am imposition on someone else. Unexpected visitors likewise are an imposition. If you would not do it to someone else, then do not allow it to be done to you. But how? You may want to retain the friendship and not want to appear...

    I can't stand it when I pick a day during a

    weekend when I just want to walk around the house naked and I suddenly hear a knock on the door. Day ruined.

    Is This True- Successful And Unsuccessful And U E S.

    Is this true-Winners don't allow Drop-Ins at all, Extreme Losers allow them in extreme, In- Between ppl allow them in between. It's a scale. I have noticed that the successful people I know and know of don't have unexpected visitors. Think Richard Branson. I doubt he gets them...

    Please Call First

    When I'm at home in the mornings before work, I am in my pajamas or maybe even butt naked.  This is my home, after all, and I want to be comfortable in it.  So if someone knocks on my door I freak out.  If I'm home alone I'll hide in the back of the house so they...

    You Need An Appointment

    Seriously. If you just appear at my house out of nowhere, without telling me with two days in advance (or the day before), I will freak out. Don't people ever think that I may be busy that day and I really don't need them? Or that I have other plans and they're ruining...

    The Most Annoying Thing.

    I absolutely cannot stand unexpected guests.  It's this simple:  Call before you come, or we WILL be standing outside talking, until you realize you've intruded and decide to leave. I had a friend back in high school.  When I first met her, I felt bad for her...

    The worst are people like the landlord. At least, now, living a state away from my parents they can't show up unexpectedly... My house is generally in disarray... I'm almost always frazzled, even if its 'breaktime'... Call me first, mmmkay?

    I Hate It

    It always seems like they show up when my house is a mess or my hair looks like I just woke up.  I sometimes think some people do it just for the shock value or are looking for things to gossip about.

    Unexpected Visitors

    I hate unexpected visitors.  My belief is that people who barge at people's house without a call first, don't have manners.  What if the person didn't have a chance cleaning, why do others have to see it?  What if the person is having sex at the moment?  What if the person is...

    Im not keen on surprises generally - and that includes people knocking on the door. I don't like being unprepared for things. My general tactic is to duck and dash for a safe place where I can spy on the door and they can't see me, until the coast is clear and they are gone. I...
