At that point it is acceptable to simply kick the door in, SWAT-style.
I go in through the chimney, Santa -style
I go through the TV, The Ring-style
I just go ahead and ring the doorbell a second time. The Ring II
I just stand there with a disapproving glare til they answer, Jehovah's witness style.
I climb through their pet door, dog style. And then it gets awkward.
I just knock again, awkward-commoner-at-your-doorstep style.
My combo breaker failed >.>
I think you mean "doggy style"
I take the doorbell off and travel with it to Mordor, Lord of the Rings style.
I just Apparate into the house, Harry Potter style.
I break down the door with a battery ram, Timmy's dad style.
i come home at midnight and climb out the window before 5:30 AM, hooker style.
I choose to go through the phone line, Matrix style.
I bust through the wall, koolaid man style.
I go through the second story window, ninja style.
I climb in the window and watch you sleep, 108-year-old virgin style.
I just ring the doorbell again, normal person style.
I throw pebbles at their bedroom window; Romeo-style.
I climb in their window and snatch their people up, Lincoln Park Rapist style.
I make another entrance, creeper sssstyle
I make another entrance, creeper sssstyle.
'Did you just shout at my door?'
"I didn't think the bell went off..."
'Did you even press the button?'
"the wicked witch is dead!"
I send a "I'm here" text. Fuck doorbells and knocking.
That must get awkward for girl scouts.
"(Texts) Ya I'm coming over later to sell you cookies, so make sure you're home."
"Who are you and how did you get my number?!"
I didn't say when you did, I meant if a girl scout used that method.
And that's not always true, I've had girl scouts ring my door before, and I didn't know them at all.
Jules is right, the troop leaders tell you not to go to strangers' houses.
That doesn't mean they always listen. I'm not disagreeing with you, the troop leaders probably tell them for safety reasons, but I'm just saying that I have seen scouts go door to door in my neighborhood.
I gotcha, shame on those disobedient girl scouts!
I am not friends with m(any) 8 year olds therefore to all of them that have been at my door, i am a stranger...
Actually, someone pissed in my Wheaties...
I'm more of a peer-in-the-window- until-somebody-sees-you kind of person.
That's why you don't use the doorbell, you just stroll on in like you own the place.
Like a boss
That's why you always reply to yourself.
Like a boss.
1. Stroll in like you own the place.
2. Take house deed.
3. Own the place.
6. Like a boss.
Like the government.
I've somehow been able to get over that fear.
(Pizza Hut driver): You don't know the half of it.
I always stand there creepily in the window by the door waiting for someone to pass by and see me.
It's not awkward if you're just standing there by yourself. If they don't come within a minute, then it's probably acceptable to ring it again.
What's funny is that you don't actually care if someone rings twice at your house, but when you're the one ringing, you get really nervous if you have to do it again.
this post is offensive to people without doors
why did i anonymous thing
everyone in the world is fat, especially asians... americans are really skinny
that comment is offensive to people without lives
Prank: Ring the door, turn around, when they open the door and ask you who you are and why you're turned around. Turn around and slap the shit out of them
Don't worry, bitch, I didn't forget about you! There's a slap for you! Slap slap slap! Yeah, there you go! Here's a little reach around the back of the head slap!
That's true, and I also feel like if it really didn't ring, and they end up opening the door for their own reason, and be like "why are you randomly standing at my door when you didn't even ring the doorbell" and ill be like uhhhhh
To avoid this situation, my sister chooses to ring the doorbell repeatedly, without even hearing out each ring, until someone answers the door.
I get an angry mob to storm the place, I_Predict_A_Riot style.
So glad you said you're.
I simply ring the doorbell again, human style.
No one corrected the tense of ring from "rung" to "rang".
I cannot tell whether this is a step forward or a step backward...
(Chauncy Pickles): Nope, actually, both 'rung' and 'rang' are perfectly acceptable. I dictionary-ed it.
If you say so. I follow Wikimentality and don't double-check things.
I usually ring then knock after a few minutes of waiting.
It's actually funny when you think about how long the comments go on for.
At first I was like :D
But then I was like http://www.amirite.net/463014
I didn't say that you stole it from me. I can name a number of times that posts on websites were similar, but not directly stolen or reposted. Mine is worded differently, but I don't really see how it's hard to follow. But, anyway, congrats on POTD...
did she also post your comment without waiting for you to finish?
Waiting for me to finish what?
you forgot the "r" on door :P
SHOOT! Thank you for correcting me. I feel like such an idiot.
Duh why would people not agree to this? Yes, it's always awkward. If it wasn't awkward, then you didn't do it.
Because their opinion is different? A large amount of people agreeing doesn't mean it FACT. If you don't understand that, get off amirite?
I don't think it's awkward. I just ring again. Why would they care?
That's why I always knock.
Yeah but they might not hear if their house is big-ish and they don't have an actual knocker.
I said that they might not hear if they don't have a knocker, implying that just knocking on the door with your hand isn't as loud as with a knocker, which I think is a reasonable thing to imply.
I still have the same issue when I knock.
