Knock, knock, who's there? It's me, Raj! What do you want? Let me in, let me in! :P I typically have my room door closed when I am in the room. I don't like being disturbed and being the very private me, I don't fancy people looking at me when I am doing stuffs. I don't lock it however - not unless I really want to keep people out. From time to time, people will just open my door and walk into my room to come talk to me. I find that quite irritating half the time. I rank this higher than phone calls on my list of annoying things. It's like, if you compare emails and calls, emails are preferable since you can choose to respond to them at your own time. Phone calls are more difficult. You either pick the call up or continue to let it ring non-stop. Opening my door, walking right in, and demanding my attention is the worst of the lot. I am not even given a chance to say no (though I have shooed people off in the past when I really wanted to concentrate). But the worst part is that they don't knock. I simply hate it. They don't knock! I feel it is basic courtesy to knock. If I don't need you to knock, I would have left my door wide open. Knocking alerts you to my attention. At least I am mentally prepared that there is someone at the door wanting my attention. A simple knock that takes a mere second, yet one that can mean a whole world of difference... what's so difficult? So what do you think? Do you knock before entering someone's room? Or do you simply barge in as if you have the right? Do you hate it when people do not knock before entering your room? Or are you a visitor magnet who welcomes every human, elf or troll (lol, I just can't resist!!)? Do share your thoughts. ;-)
