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 ...halcyonjm 07/23/2012
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...danaofdoom 07/23/2012
The difference between asking permission to enter, and notifying the occupier that you're entering regardless of permission.
Hate this.Animgator 07/23/2012
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.anibal1223 07/23/2012
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.MintyBalls 07/23/2012

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 ...ylca 07/23/2012
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.

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 ...nattysharp 07/23/2012
not bad at all my mom actually has just torn the door off of its hinges before in the past. fuck knocking right?red321red321 07/23/2012
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 ...-Jayus- 07/23/2012
I think those are my ex's parents. I don't mean the knocking habits, I mean they look EXACTLY LIKE THEM.Cerealcomma 07/23/2012
A few seconds pass
Me: Come in.
Parent: What were you doing?
The worst is when people knock while opening the door, like using the force of the knock to open it. Huge pet peeve.TSolo315 07/23/2012
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?!!![deleted] 07/23/2012
My dad does this every day. He's caught me smoking weed like 20 times, but never once walked in on me fapping.Croyt 07/23/2012
First world problems. I slept in the living room all my teen years till college.saga_boy 07/23/2012
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..Fudgcicle 07/23/2012
My dad barely even knocks. He just taps on the door with his fingertips and opens the door before I can say anything.DeadPants182 07/23/2012
My girlfriend's son learned very quickly to wait to be told it was ok to enter. Real quick...missingsf 07/23/2012
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.vari-slash 07/24/2012
You kids today..... Get caught banging a girl. Then your parents will just take the whole fucking door off. No need to knock then. Ah the good ol' days.crimpy 07/23/2012
my solution to this problem was to be naked 100% of the time i am in my room, no one barges in anymore, ever.Arvald 07/23/2012

No the Scumbag parents are when they close your door, and leave it an inch open.Yoshi511 07/23/2012
Coming into teenage boys room to quickly = extreme awkwardness for many weeks afterwards = cannot unsee. Why would anyone do that?mickeybmike 07/23/2012
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.gbakermatson 07/23/2012
My mom knocked I said "go away", she came in and sat on my legs while I was still inside of my girlfriend (we were under the blankets) a lock was installed the next day.fistfulloframen 07/23/2012
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.jajauwuwi 07/23/2012
Fuck this shit so hard. I'd do the same thing to them to show them how it feels, but I don't want to be emotionally scarred from what I might see..ItsOnlyKetchup 07/23/2012
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. :)mauimagic 07/23/2012
thats why my door is locked no matter what even if Im just there to play a video game.[deleted] 07/23/2012
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.RinkuTheFirst 07/23/2012
They'll wait longer the first time they catch you wanking... They might even buy you a lock for your door..indyliberal1 07/23/2012
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.henriwashere 07/23/2012
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...tophatpainter 07/23/2012
