My dad would do this. His knock opened the door, because he is an asshole meathead who feels like he has the right to control everyone.
Wasn't even his house, by the way.Posted by RinkuTheFirst
thats why my door is locked no matter what even if Im just there to play a video game.Posted by siliconespectre
Or they knock AS they're fucking opening the door.Posted by racetothecomics
My scumbag mom doesnt even knock and just barges in anyway.Posted by you_lose_
My dad would just walk in, but not just casual and relaxed, he'd open my door and just keep walking to the middle of my room and have no clue that I was upset he didn't knock first (I had a huge room growing up). I had to tattle on him to my mom...it's funny now looking back on it. I love my dad. :)Posted by mauimagic

That stopped for me when then walked in on me masturbating....twice.Posted by MikeKM
I feel your pain. My mom used to burst into my room all the time too, drunk and high on meth. Usually it was to escape her insane boyfriends or to tell me how much she hated herself for being a shitty mom etc. She'd even leave the door open on her way out. But your parents are much more scumbaggy...Posted by tophatpainter
Dad walked in on me fapping once. Never did it again.Posted by tomakeredditsuckless
That's why I have a water pistol within grabbing distance when I'm in the bedroom. If someone opens the door before I say they can, they get a face full of water. They're learning.Posted by henriwashere
My mom did this to me... I was mid coitus with my gf at the time... needless to say I then switched my doorknob with the one on her office, which has a lock.Posted by Silicosis

Pffft my parents built my room without a place for a door checkmate!Posted by catailcataclysm
Used to live with my father only, and he understood guys' needs. Never walked into my room unless strictly necessary, in which case he would knock and wait. And if I brought a girl home giving notice, he would just go meet up with some friends. Love my dad.Posted by jajauwuwi
The best is when they once walked in mid wank. That was awkward.Posted by Strider-SnG
be glad that your parents even knock.Posted by nikky_jay
Coming into teenage boys room to quickly = extreme awkwardness for many weeks afterwards = cannot unsee. Why would anyone do that?Posted by mickeybmike
Look them straight in the eyes, and finish. Then, as you're cleaning up, ask, "Can I help you with something?" Be calm as fuck. It'll freak them out, and you will have no more privacy issues.Posted by gbakermatson

My parents have never knocked on my door, I put my own lock in the door while they were gone one weekend and every time they want to come in my room they just violently twist and shake the knob while banging until I open it. I guess it works..Posted by Fudgcicle
This is where you look them straight in the eye and finish.Posted by TomTheScouser

Complains about privacy
Refuses to move out (edit) Refuses to run awayPosted by brendamn
Wait untill you hear them coming to your room, get naked, put a bucket on top of your head and do a helicopter (if you are a guy) in front of the mirror (computer). Rinse and repeat as necessary.Posted by IronicIvan
My parents used to do this, but they got better for the most part. My mom pretty much never comes to my room anymore, but ever since I caught my dad masturbating, he respects my right to privacy too. However, sometimes he tries to knock so quietly that it cant be heard, and then come in claiming there was no response. I hear him about 95% of the time though.Posted by vari-slash
Parents always seem extremely passive aggressive to me. I mean it's such a disrespect of privacy, yet it's almost like. You think I'm going to knock?! In my own fucking house? You must be joking?!!!Posted by Arty_Yo

My dad barely even knocks. He just taps on the door with his fingertips and opens the door before I can say anything.Posted by DeadPants182

My mother did this a lot when i was in high school. Being a hormone-driven, confused, horny teen i tended to well...cough...keep my door closed. After suffering jumping at every door or creak in the house one day i decided i had had enough.
The next time my mom walked though that door, i looked her right in the eyes, kept masturbating, had the porn going loudly over my head phones, and then said "Excuse me mom, could you kindly get the fuck out? I'm trying to finish here"
her response "oh, sorry, guess i'll knock next time."
Embarrassing as all hell, but years later, she still hasn't once come in with out waiting 20-30 seconds for a response...enough time to get my clothing on and cover any girls i have over.Posted by -Jayus-

Lol your parents knock ???Posted by saphlove
not bad at all my mom actually has just torn the door off of its hinges before in the past. fuck knocking right?Posted by red321red321
My father used to pull this little gag where he'd knock, and then barge in as quickly as possible after knocking. I talked to him about it, saying that it was annoying and unnecessary, but he kept doing it anyway.
So what did I do? I pull the door hinges off, and shimmed them with a little bit of cardboard, just enough so that the door rubbed against the jamb a little bit when it closed.
This meant that when he pulled his gag, the timing was way off, since now opening the door past the latch was suddenly more difficult, so he ended up smashing his way through the door, and totally blowing out the jamb. He thought he had fucked up, and finally there was a little bit of shame to regulate him away from doing it. And I think it cost several hundred $$ to have the door and jamb repaired.Posted by apullin
This is why I learned to hang out with my back against the door. Even just sitting and reading, or doing homework or something.Posted by silent_p
My parents prefer to omit the knocking part and just enter. My mother learned a few weeks ago that they really should knock and wait for me to answer or tell them to come in. I had just finished a shower and was standing in my room in a towel about to get changed and I heard someone coming up the steps. I could tell it was my mother and she entered her room across the hall. I was about to get changed but I waited, just in case. It was a good idea. I heard her door open and then she tried my door. It was locked, but my door hardly requires a super-key to open it. About 2 seconds later my door opened and my mother walked in on me in a towel standing in front of my dresser. Haven't let her live it down yet. And THAT is why you should knock and wait.Posted by nattysharp

Thoughts in order of appearance
- Who still lives with their parents?
- What kind of parents walk into a grown person's room without actually knocking and waiting?
- There are a lot more teenagers on reddit these days.
e: Lightbulb 2 Apparently the economy sucks and it's more common for 18+ people to be living at home than ever. I was entirely unaware that this was becoming a trend. Though it is strange to think of a grown person having his parents barge into his room, i really would think that if you were an adult living with your folks there would be some sort of boundaries.Posted by ylca

You have a door to your room, haven't had a door to my room in at least 13 years. Being 20 and living at home without a door to your room is a bummer. Well except for all the free stuff.Posted by MintyBalls
Well, duh. Can't give you time to hide stuff, for all I know, you little shits are smoking pot in there.
Or, even worse, smoking my pot in there.Posted by Mineshaft_Gap
I got tired of this one day. So what I did was, I would hear the knock and the twisting of the handle and immediately proceed to whip it out. I put a stop to that "come in anyways" shit in 2 days.Posted by anibal1223
The difference between asking permission to enter, and notifying the occupier that you're entering regardless of permission.

Yeah this lasted until my dad walked in on me changing when I was a teenager and there was a nuclear meltdown. God I was a bitch back then...Posted by danaofdoom
shit. I couldn't even close my door growing up. Kids these days.Posted by JanetRenoIsHot
Ah, the 'knock-knock-turn-the-handle-in-one-motion' move
me: didn't you tell me it was polite to knock before disturbing someone? mom:* i knocked...
Yeah, at that point 13yo me decided that if I didn't have any privacy nobody did, and that I was under no obligation to be any better than my parents' example.
i became a knock-knock-turn fiend. It was very liberating, and every closed door became a challenge to find to plausible reason to go into that room, day or night.
Pretty sure i walked in on my folks having sex at least once (under the covers, thankfully).
When i walked in on my naked older sister one day (i knocked...), she WENT NUCLEAR.
To placate my sister, my parents sat me down with the intention of having a talk with me about respecting my sister's privacy. It turned out to be a conversation about them respecting mine.Posted by halcyonjm
