Personally, I don't like drop-in visitors. I think it is common courtesy to call first to see if it is convenient for someone to come by. I guess that is just the way I was raised. How about you?
Same here, it just shows good manners and upbringing to call ahead to drop by/in to see family or friends.

I am a complete hermit. My dad wants to repaint the shutters but I told him no because that just invites people over. If you want to see me make sure it's somewhere public or the other person's house. We live in a giant family man cave, three girls and a dad. This is my dream house from the outside:

You could sit up in your 'turret' with binoculars searching the perimeter for intruders! Watch those dastardly folk with a cup in hand to borrow some sugar. Once they get a foot in the door, you're doomed.

My favorite phrase I coined is "I cherish my solitude". I like my dog, family and friends but I live alone and love it. One of my nephews is graduating next month so lots of family will be coming from around the country and I don't look forward to that at all. I don't have a spare bedroom for anyone to sleep in and I am not set up for entertaining.

Too bad....

At least a day's notice.

A week if you're the in-laws.
