Neither... i want them waiting there, door open and ready to embrace me.
I just open it with a good kick!
Well...in order to really RING that bell, you gotta play with the knockers a while...
I always knock because, I find door bells so annoying.
I like to knock because sometimes the sound of a doorbell is worse than a knock. The buzzy bells can be jarring, but a knock, I can make it as loud or soft as I like...
I prefer to stand on their front porch and phone to let them know I'm there.
Anything that is not the sound of a telephone
somehow doesn't knocking on a door always seem to sort of hurt your knuckles?
knock..i like to knock to..Ducks in the long grass ..quake quake...my theme song..ooops..knock
I always knock, doorbells don't always work.
I prefer knocking myself, as I feel that the act is less intrusive than the sound a doorbell makes.
I don't answer knocks. It's always someone I don't wanna see.
I ALWAYS knock, because if I ring the doorbell and I don't hear it, I will not know if it is working or not and I am afraid I will be forces to stand there for all of eternity waiting. (think of schrodinger's cat). However, if I knock then I know that if the person were home, then there is a chance that they heard my knock, and I will not be forced to stand at the door and ponder whether I had given them a reasonable chance to answer... at which point I will steal his cat, because mine's locked in a box : )
Knock and walk in. You've said hello by knocking and proceded cuz you own the place! Always have, always will. I'm not tryong to earn my place inside the door, I know my place inside, the knock was just my fun way of sayin hey!
doorbell if it works, knock if it doesn't - people inside do not always hear a knock
i prefer to knock.. Seems less offensive as the door bell. Or maybe not.. The door bell rings once.. knocking is ... HMMM NOW you have caused a conundrum within my brain... DARN IT
neither both and just enter...
I fell that knocking is a littke more personal. :)
I am a knocker.I feel bad when I have to ring the bell.If it is a very large house though I ring first.
