Do you open your door when someone knocks? - three doors
Since I live in a secure building and anyone who comes to visit needs to ring my bell I seldom open my door when someone is knocking on it. Most times it's just someone in the building looking for a cigarette. Sometimes it's a guy down the hall (who is usually looking for a cigarette lol) just asking how I'm doing which is nice but sometimes when I don't answer the door because I'm sleeping he rings the bell. Whenever my son is coming over he'll call me so I always know it's not him. I also look out my window to see if there's a car there that I know just in case he forgets to call which really never happens but I look anyway. Do you always open your door when someone knocks on it? If someone is coming over do they call you first to let you know? Have you ever pretended you aren't home?
