Do you mind if people enter your room without knocking on your door, even if those people were close to you? Does it makes you feel upset?

Yes, I really do mind this happening, I don't like it. This really shows a lack of respect and also a lack of manners! I think it's important to always knock on someone's door and waiting for them to respond before gaining access as this then prepares them, I mean you don't know what they might be doing in their room! I think that privacy is important and everyone is entitled to some level of privacy even within their own homes! Andrew

I absolutely agree with you Andrew we are all entitled to that level of privacy even though those people were part of our family. It shows respect to us and every person should know how to practiced it. Anyway thank you for sharing with us and enjoy your day!

That really bothers me when people enters my room without knocking. It just bothers me and it shows a lack of manners. In fact, it is just downright rude. I am not like this, but these people do have to be careful. There may be some people somewhere who consider people who enter a room without knocking to be a threat. It can be dangerous for these people, if they catch the wrong person at the wrong time, I can shudder to think what might happen. On a personal level, it does bother me when people enter the room without knocking. Of course, these people do not really listen even if you tell them politely to knock on the door before entering. That is one of the reason's why I keep my door locked these days, especially when people are over at my house. People are too nosy for their own good at times and they enter the room without permission far too much for my liking.

You're totally right..if you want to give them a signal that they are all welcome to entering your room without knocking there is a possibility that something might happen and you cannot guarantee your safeness even if it your room..And we know also that it is our own decision to give them permission. For me, I'm a private person so , I don't usually give them a permission to enter my room and I'm annoyed them if they are not following my decision..

Yeah, I agree with you. But we have to tell them that whenever we go, we must knock the room so that we can avoid conflict. And we must respect the privacy of others and we also respect our self if doing that things.

Yes it does. Sometimes we need to be alone. Whenever I wanna be alone to think, I lock the door. It's understood that I just wanna be alone for a while.

I don't really mind, I enjoy people visiting my room anytime. Though if I don't want anyone to come to my room, I lock my door.

Yes. I do. I feel irritated because it is like invading your privacy. Knocking before entering a room is courtesy or showing respect to the room owner.
