    Default Do you appreciate unannounced visitors?

    Are you happy to see friends/family when they just show up at your door without fore-warning? I have to say that when someone comes over for a visit I like to know before hand. My mother-in-law just shows up at my house and wants to visit. I would be happy to welcome her if I was expecting her. When people come over I like to have my house ready and my schedule/to-do list clear. When she just pops in I put on my happy face, but inside I am rolling my eyes and saying grrr lol.

    So who here loves the surprise visitor? Who doesn't?

    I dislike them because I would like warning that I need to put on a bra ;)

    nothing's better than having to say oh hold on I have to go put my bra on when you have someone coming over!


    I don't mind it when the house is clean but I do have times that irritate me when friends stop by and want to stay even when they know your about to eat dinner.

    Sarah you made me LOL!

    No Amy, not really. Sometimes DD pops in, and that is usually ok. I would NEVER do that to someone. IF I'm not expecting someone, I don't answer the door.
    I also donot answer the phone, if I am not familiar with the number. [the : 1 8oo service or private callers....forget it]

    I'm fine IF I know someone is coming.

    lol Sarah!

    I don't like unannounced visitors either, because they tend to show up at the most inconvenient times . I appreciate a phone call (even if they are only 5mins away) before they drop in - it gives me the opportunity to either say its not a good time or madly hide the mess.

    I *haaaaate* when people just show up. I feel like it's rude. My mom just stopped by at 10pm last night to "give me something" she could have waited til today to give me. Just because we live close, she think she has free reign to just show up at my apartment, plop herself on my couch and talk about nothing for half an hour when I'm trying to get ready to go to sleep. It just bugs the heck out of me; I would never just show up at someone's home unannounced!

    I like unannounced visitors if they are my family. I don't have family around anymore, so I miss it a lot. I don't mind when some people come by, but if it's salesmen, I hate that the very most!!!

    I tell them if I wanted to buy something, I would have already got online or went to the store...

    Lately the only people 'popping' in are my 2 teenage sons' girlfriends or friends, so it's all good. If they are not here to interrupt my designing or whatever I'm doing and the kids will usually leave with their friends so it means quiet time.

    oh and I always say, "I hate it when people stop by when I'm in the middle of a project," and my husband says, "But you're always in the middle of a project" so I quit complaining....

    If my mother in law lived in town, that would be hard. She's a super talker and I'm not.. after a while of listening to her, my brain shuts down.... I have to 'work myself up' before I have any visits with her.
