Sounds a silly question right? last night my bf asked me this question, then i said of couse i would lock the door. but he was very surprised. bcz he never locked his door when he is taking a bath.. i asked why, he said no need to do so. but to me, i will feel so unsafe, even i am at home. u know one thing really so strange is that i will still lock the door even only me stay home.. i dont know why..just feel so unsaft by leaving my dooor unlocked.. and how about u? will u lock ur door or just close the door? and why? am i the only one who lock the door in any condition? thanks for ur reading have a good day

No i don't lock the door. It's pretty much safe here in our area and there's nobody around except my sister and my mom. There's really no cause for alarm. Besides, our bathroom has no lock. lol! Moochie is always around the house so it would be too obvious if there are people around because he would bark at unknown persons breaking in the house. My cousin has a store nearby so anyone who gets in the house will be very visible and strangers should stay out. I think in your case, if you live alone and as a girl i think you really should be careful.

i useto always lock the door when i am going to take bath but fro the time i am having a so and i am alone and no one there at home so i never lock the door as i need to keep a watch on my son. before i useto put him into a walker and then take bathand sometimes make him sleep and then take a bath as fast as possible and now he is going to to e three years old and now he plays and sometimes peep into the bathroom but then too i have to keep observing him as during his play he may hurt himself. it is always a risk if childrens are left alone so i have that hesitation and never lock my door when we are onl two at home but whenever my husband is athome i lock my door as i have no wory about my son and my hubby will takecare of him.

yeah that's problem if you are a girl. but for a man maybe it's not a big problem to do. i would lock the door when there are many people at home. but when i am alone, i prefer not to lock the door for safety hahaha..

Actually since it's just Hubby and I, I not only don't lock the door I don't even close it. I just go in and take my shower. Hubby partly closes the door when he takes one. Now if my niece or nephew are here then I not only close it but lock it b/c they are children and I don't want them walking in on me. [b]~~AT PEACE WITHIN~~ **STAND STRONG IN YOUR BELIEFS**[/b]

Yes, I lock the door when I am in the bathroom. Some people are used to just barging in without checking if somebody's inside. Even if I'm living with my dad and younger brother, it still embarrasses me to be seen naked, or sitting on the throne!

I will definitely lock the door. Even I am uncomfortable to open the door at least at my place. Most importantly just to avoid few drops of water outside bathroom. lol It is also better so that we can be comfortable while changing our inner wear after taking bath. Bye

I always make sure that I lock the door even if I am alone. I don't want to get used to not locking the door because there may be times that there are other people in the house and they might accidentally open the door with the intention of using the bathroom. I don't want to take such a risk. I don't want to be taking a bath and always be checking if there is someone outside who might open the door.

Hi,babyorchid! Well,I will lock the door when I am going to take a bath of course,but I will not lock the door in all conditions,because it makes me feel oppressive,you know feel that way is really uncomfortable.Different people thinks differently.I don't understand why you like to lock the door all the time.I won't do that,but maybe you have your own thinkings... Happy mylotting!

Well i always lock the door when i am going to take a bath . Its just that i do not really want to geet disturbed. By the way it is a time when you can relax and think freely so locking the door is very useful.

I only close the door. Now it doesn´t matter: I live alone. But when I had a family (my husband and my two girls) we taught the children to knock to see if there was someone there. My hubby and I felt that bathrooms are very unsafe places and even if many knobs can be opened with a coin, when someone has an accident coins suddenly disappear. If we had visitors that was one rule of the house we explained to them. I dson´t remember anyone making the "oops, sorry" sound after opening a door that should be shut. Happy posting

I know it's foolish, but I don't close the door. Nobody's around the house when I take a bath anyway, and lately the lights got busted so I have no choice! lol! Scaredy cat alright but yeah think it's more of the psychological issue of security. How much you feel secured. I don't know, better make scientific basis heheh! ciao baby!

Of course I do. I used to study in a boarding schools. We share our bathrooms. I can't take a risk for the door to be suddenly open up by someone. And when at home, it's necessary to lock since there's male family members around. Things might be awkward if accident happen. They might open up by mistakes.

Can't lock our bathroom door so answer to that is no its not locked. We do have respect for each other here, when the bathroom door is closed you knock.
