No text, no phone call, they just rang the doorbell and there they were!
How dare they!!!!!
EST, OP has no friends.
what the hell is EST
OP, assuming they're all over the age of 25, punch and delete. This type of behavior is forgivable only amongst the young and ignorant.
Don't answer the door on drop-ins, I sure as hell don't. Do it once and they'll think that gves them carte blanche to do it all the time. They don't know what I may be doing, who I'm doing or if I'm walking around butt ass naked just because. In this day of cell phones, there is no excuse for that.This isn't Mayberry where you show up and have a 'sip and see' and 'sit a spell' all damn day. I'm busy and have shit to do.
Hell, leave your curtains/blinds open as you type on your laptop and wave at their asses as you type. That'll show em!
Elaborate scenario troll.
My dad does this.
and I live on a hill!! in a gated community!! and I had my boyfriends cum on my blue sweat pants!!! I felt like Monica Lewinsky!!!!
Just wait until you start getting phone calls from the driveway.
"Are you home?"
really old people do this because they assume it is normal. they get it from watching old TV shows where people would just walk in on their neighbors. Uncouth people do this at any age.
This happened to the Golden Girls all the time.
Instead of announcing it to the 20 people that post here that couldn't care less, OP, maybe you should have been a gracious host and entertained them by presenting your hole.
Having univited guests is normal in rural areas. And it used to be normal between neighbours in urban areas.
But we've been painting the house for what seems like years (actually, it is years) and so the house has been in a constant state of chaos and any uninvited visitors wouldn't have had anywhere to sit or to eat for most of that time.
I stole some guys under pants from the laundry room tonite!
R8, my dad does this, too. My ex did this and would try to break in when I refused to come to the door. All my former neighbors did this. People did this to me in high school and I would stand frozen so they couldn't see me through the window. Even when I tell people not to come over they show up.
My thoughts exactly R4. Come sit by me.
You all live sad, selfish, and depressing lives.
R16, stop dropping in on your friends. They don't like it even if they pretend otherwise. Would it really kill you to call first?
This is an introvert vs. extrovert problem.
I miss the days when friends and neighbors would drop by. Everyone is over-scheduled and over-shielded from the outside world.
r6, he does it because you allow it! Does his own your house or apartment and must have access?
What an Easily conStructed Type of story.
Now YOU give them surprise anal.
It's a Christmas tradition.
Did one have a creepy doll face mask on by any chance?
No R18, it's a rude vs well-mannered problem.
Luckily this problem never arises in NYC.
What's wrong with some of you shut-ins?
[quote]This is an introvert vs. extrovert problem.
It's also a problem when you're in the midst of a nice little tug session.
"Oh, I wasn't sure if you were home; it took you so long to come to the door! Why are you so flushed?"
I know what you mean.
If you put people off all the time, then eventually they won't call or come by anytime.
You won't like that at all, believe me.
OP? You're from New England, aren't you?
My brother does this too. And a friend. Kind of annoying.
I hope you offered them a relish tray and a red wine.
Yeah OP, I can't imagine anyone liking you enough to ring your doorbell at all.
That's so Edward Albee.
20 years after graduation I ended up living in the same high-rise as a good high-school friend, five floors apart.
Neither of us would dream of going to the other's place without calling first. Of course, we were raised properly.
When I lived in rural Pennsylvania it was common for neighbors to stop by unannounced.
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
