Do you gently close doors or slammed it?

Just a quick idea comes to my mind when one of my co-flatmate close the door in a wrong way. She slammed the door without any reason at all. I dont know if she is mad or angry or if there is any situation that she is thinking of. However, I found that attitude is not the proper way to act especially if you are living in a flat or just renting a room.

i just close the door gently, but with some power without making much noise.

yep. probably you are right, i think slammend the door is a silly think because gives a look of bad temper or bad education, especialy when we are in front at others peoples. I not usulay slamm the door when i was with my family or friends or strange people because i not especialy like to see the others slammed the door too. Sometimes maybe happens by change, when it have a draught (airtstream), and we couldn't hang the door in place, or by a distrating we close very fast the door (no reason at all). Therefore we must treat the doors nicely because the door-lock could brake or spoil. :)

as long as there is pure caring in one's voice you could always ask without arousing negative feelings on the way your flatmate closes doors this way. i can identify with your flatmate as i was told in my former office if i'm always mad since the door of my office slams whenever i close it and it was the shocker of all shockers since i was already in my 30's. meaning i've been slamming doors all my life? that's just my natural way of closing it. in the end it ended as a laughing matter to everyone since they and even i find it funny that i close doors this way. turns out this was consistent with the loud sound i produce whenever i walk and my straight to the point way of speaking on all things .

I do have this habit of slamming the doors when I'm angry or upset. I don't meant to do it but when my hands got on the door I would love to slammed it. But i tired to change that habit of mine...not good you will disturb other peoples peace. Now I am more mellow...and every time I got angry I just stay away from the door.

I hate it when people slam doors loudly, Makes too much noise, in my view. I don't like the noise a slamming door makes, so I am not going to make loud noises to annoy someone else.

hi! I mostly close the doors gently, but when I am really mad about something I slammed it, because my nerves are really gone crazy :) if I can say it that way!

No, I dont slam doors either. Unless its an old car door that has to be slammed to be shut properly - or my trunk as it wont latch if its not slammed. In a house, I always close the door gently - even if I am mad. I might go punch a pillow, but it can recover unlike a door that might eventually have to be replaced.

It depends on my mood, I close the door gently when I am in good mood and also as not to disturb other people. When I'm angry at someone, I slam the door.

Most of the time, it is done what I guess is properly. That would be closing the door gently. The fact is that if you close the door the wrong way, they could get busted in somehow. The front door at my house has never worked correctly because of someone slamming it. So slamming the door can do a lot of damage to said door and its just not all that pleasant of a sound to hear a door slamming. That being said, I have slammed a door a time or two. Only when I have really been pushed. I immediately regretted my angry actions as I think I might have came off as crazy. Still, it has been done and its not like I can exactly undo what has been done. Still, I have slammed the door before in a moment of weakness. Not something I normally do but it does in fact happen.

I always prefer to close doors gently. The only situations when I slam doors are when I am angry or when I am in a hurry. In those situations, I odn't care about how I close the door. I hate to hear it when people slam doors. I can't think about somebody slapping doors on my face. My friend had such an incident. I won't talk to the person ever in my life is somebody does that to me.
