mortified

there are some very logical reasons why newlywed couples do not feel like answering their door when someone rings the doorbell. sometimes the house is a mess... sometimes you're taking a nap in the bedroom... there's a lot of reasons. tonight it was the latter. it was 10pm. someone rang the doorbell. me and dallas looked at each other and didn't respond. then she pounded on the door. we didn't respond. then she opened the door and said, "hello?".......!!!!!!!!!!!!! "is anyone home?" dallas and i froze, mortified. an intruder! she broke a boundary. a major boundary. what comes next?! is she going to come back to the bedroom and peer into our bedroom door, find us laying there, staring speechless at her? what if we had been making out on the couch?! what would she have said then? "oh, i didn't hear you say to come in, so i thought i'd just come in."

i just want to make it known, for all the silly single people out there (or maybe she's married?! which really doesn't make sense): when married people don't answer the door, they usually have a good reason. for your own sake, don't barge in.

  1. oh my gosh. i would be mortified! there are only a select few homes i will open the door to without knocking, and that's ONLY if they are expecting me. jordan has a lot of mission companions that waltz into our house unannounced. while i love that they feel comfortable in our home...it's only a matter of time before they walk in on us & feel awkward. oh man, i hope that day never comes!

  2. That is terrifying. Cody and I always lock our door because we have a fear of that happening.

  3. But what happened next? Did she sheepishly realize she was looking into the wrong living room? WHAT A CLIFFHANGER.

  4. BAHAHAHAHA this made my day. Seriously, who does that?! I wouldn't feel mortified, she should be the one who is mortified.

  5. OH MAN! What did she want? I want to hear the rest of the story! And who was it?!

    This totally reminds me of the time my husband and I were having problems with the bathroom in our apartment and our landlord just walked on it and it's the law that they have to give you 24 hours notice and he said he "called" first and left a message (neither of us had a) a missed call or b) a message) and it was like 7 in the morning and I woke up to him standing in the doorway of our bedroom and thought it was my husband until I looked over and there was my husband. In bed with me. So I screamed and flipped out. I mean! What if I had not been wearing pajamas! We were newly weds after all! ;] Uncool.

    I totally understand your mortified-ness. Totally.

    2. larisaa, OH. MY. GOSH. i can't believe that's a real story! i'm so freaked out right now! i would sue. i have a married guy friend who had his female landlord walk into their house unannounced and catch him changing clothes. in their case, they really did sue and got their moneys worth. what a nightmare. also, we were so in shock that we couldn't move, haha, and after a minute she closed the door and left. and then we promptly snuck into the living room and locked the door.

    3. HA! Okay, I even worked for a law firm at the time. I totally should have sued.

      I was reminding Evan of that last night and totally remembered ANOTHER story. Which is 20 times more embarrassing because I'm an idiot. So, I was moving out of my apt and so the rental company was showing it but instead of calling to let me know, they'd send me a letter in the mail. Well, my mail wouldn't come until late at night and so at like 1 in the afternoon I was taking a nap and I heard someone walk into my house and start wandering around, opening doors and drawers and talking. And so I went out to see who the heck was in my house and the rental lady was like, "Oh, we sent you a letter saying we'd be stopping by." I was like, no. And THEN I SAID: "It's fine for you to look around, but you can't go in my bedroom because I have people over." PEOPLE. I. SAID. PEOPLE.

      What the heck is wrong with me?! bahaha. I said it to the rental lady AND the people she was showing the house to. I'm sure they were like, "We can't live here. This girl has orgies here." AHHHHHH.

      Mortified, indeed.

  6. Who in the hell was she?
    Our handyman peered into our bedroom window and saw us having sex when we weren't answering his knocks. Reeeeaaally nice.

  9. yeah...I just have a personal rule not to drop in on newlyweds, regardless of how well I know them or not. I always make sure I call or something first!!!!! cuz when I get married, I definitely don't want people thinking they can come over all hours of the day or night!!!
