So say your home alone and this random stranger knocks on your door. What do you do?

Do you answer it like a fool? Do you knock back? Or what?

Hide in the dark, and wait for them to leave.

What do I actually do, or what do I not do but say online that I do to try and falsely impress people?

What I actually do is ask who it is and perhaps look through the peephole. Then I'll answer it if it isn't some cheesy "charity" or bumbling salesman (or *shudders* a Christian missionary). Most of the time, it is one of those people, because I don't have any friends and I'm a hermit who doesn't like to go anywhere or do anything.

If it's the latter, however, you are asking for, right now I can't give you an example of what I don't do, because my creativity doesn't just happen on command, it has to decide for itself when it comes out of its shell.

Well, I wouldn't answer the door. Unless maybe it was broad daylight, in which case I might. Ernie those Christian missionaries are fun to play with!

If he hands you some brochure, say "*Sniffs the brochure*... I think I ate one of these before..."

Really? I've actually only had one come to my door, and I cursed him out because I was in a really bad mood.

But next time I see one, I'll be sure to have some fun with him/her.

I'd ignore it. I don't normally open the door to strangers because most of them are quite annoying.

It's probably foolish, but I would open the door. I guess it would depend on where you live, if it's a bad neighborhood I wouldn't open it.

Open the door and hear them out.

Why you guise so unfriendly? My sister is terrified of even answering the door to a stranger.

I tend to lock all my animals up so they can't run out, then look through the little peep hole thing, if they look official I don't answer because I don't like signing things for my parents...If it's my pizza then I open it as quickly as possible...if it's a boyscout or girl scout, i ignore them...and if it's just a random ol' joe...i'll open the door slightly and listen to whatever they say...Then usually tell them my parents aren't home and make a up a bs time for when they'll be back.

Look out the window to see who it is. Then open it.

I sneak to the nearby window and look who it is through that because I don't have a peephole.
