Shut the door!!!!

  1. SHUT THE DOOR, FOR CRYING OUT LOUD!!

    Just ranting here about my 3 sons and my husband about shutting the door!! I mean these guys will just walk into the house and leave the door wide open while they proceed to carry on a full length conversation with me! As if that is not bad enough, we live on a dairy farm so flies are already a problem without the guys adding to it! My husband is actually the worse about shutting the door!! Agghhhhhh!!!!

    Heads are going to roll!!

    Now, I feel better. Thanks.

    My husband just came in and left the door open again!! He is 42 years old for crying out loud!! I am just going to give up on this battle and move to a hotel and let them deal with the flies.

    My 2 boys always shut the door - never a question there -- because the house shakes on the foundation - pictures sway, and the shockwave travels up my spine with every slam!!

    In my house it's the lights, and it's my dh telling me "Turn Off The Lights!!!" I hate to be in the dark, and turn the lights on whenever I go into a room, but forget to turn them off when I leave. He has threatened to take all of the lightbulbs out of the lamps and fixtures. Usually he just goes behind me and turns them off, since after 33 years he knows that complaining doesn't work.

    What is up with that? The boys in my house have a habit of not realizing there were 20 things they wanted to say until they opened the door. Then they stand there with the door open and talk. Wasted AC/heat, bees flying in, dog escaping (jack russels run like nobodies business!)

    same here..both problems...not just a male thing, though..my 3yr old daughter will leave the door open and after five or six "close the door"s, i get pretty loud with the command..and her startled response is 'slam!"

    I grew up with a dad that constantly yelled, "close the door! turn off that tv if you're not watching it! turn off some of these damn lights!!". <sigh> i am my father's daughter..all except the tv thing, we usually leave all four going most of the time.

    I remember once in my teens, my father literally knocking an outside bulb off the eve because it was left on. I remember thinking, "well, that was pretty STUPID!". Last week I came home from work and hubby had left every light in the house on as he left the previous night. I really fought the impulse to knock some lights out...

    My husband is pretty bad about turning every light on in the house. I come from work in the evening and every flippin light in the house will be on!! I don't know how they can stand all those bright lights. Meanwhile the little meter outside is turning like a nonstop top....:spin: :spin: :spin:

    OK, I have an idea

    Dear Mr. Popeil,
    You did such a great job with the Popeil Pocket Fisherman, and all those other wonderful doo-dads and gadgets, try putting your inventors onto this:

    A sensor that yells "SHUT THE DOOR, please" when it senses that the door is open for longer than 30 seconds. A sensor that sees someone leaving the room, and says, "Lights out!"

    Throw in a couple of bottles of aspirin..... it'll be another Ronco HIT!!

    Well, I have to figure that he came to us because he runs away (we found him - but advertised it and he went unclaimed). But I'm so anal about it. Everytime someone goes near the door I'm shouting "WHERE'S THE DOG!" They just tuck and run.......

    my husband does the sme thing with the patio door in the back!! i absolutely hate it. i actually saw a mouse come in the door as he is standing there!!!!!!!!! agggggggghhhhhhhh!!!!
    he also doesn't take his shoes off before getting on the carpet. we have hardwood in the entrance way so that is not a big deal. he works in a restaurant and comes home with nasty wet greasy shoes that sticks to carpet. aggggggggghhhhhhhhhhh!!!!!!!
