If no one is home... Watch

...would/do you still close and lock the door of the toilet or shower if you were using them? Assuming, of course, that you do lock the doors behind you when you "go."

I probably seem really weird but it's just a random thought I had; if doors were made to create that barrier and to protect one's "dignity" or whatever. Then if no one is around, surely this barrier would no longer be needed. But personally, I always still do. Probably because it's become second nature.

I always do, regardless of whether or not I'm alone at home. It's just routine. Never really thought about it, haha.

I'm gonna be alone at home for 5 weeks during the holidays cause I couldn't be bothered to go and I've to sort my uni applications out, etc.
Problems is though I get soo paranoid when I'm alone. Sometimes when our neighbour is walking downstairs and I hear it, I get scared and put the tv, phone whatever it is on mute . Some burglars broke in whilst no one was here so its justified right?

I also lock bathroom doors when I'm alone cause its become second nature, plus I check behind the shower curtain if someone is hiding there.

Dear god, I'm a mess :sigh:

I always do. I don't do anything weird when I'm home alone in case someone randomly appears, which is virtually impossible because I live on a farm in a field in the middle of no where. I always close the bathroom door because my cats come in LOL.

I do this too haha. If I'm showering at night, I also get really anxious about having to close my eyes when I'm washing off shampoo in case something appears when I do (I always picture the girl from The Grudge!)

Exactly. A few weeks ago I was home alone and thought to myself ' why not watch a movie?' Stupidly enough I watched Insidious in thr evening. In the middle of the night I woke up, but was scared to move cause I thought the guy would notice and take me. :facepalm:

How embarassing is that?
