Do you mind if people enter your room without knocking the door?

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..

Well, good for you.i have a friend who is sleeping and there is a strangers going inside her room and without hesitation the stranger do something her things and bring the money and jewelry. So it is better to lock the room and knock before entering.
