 :o  What if the door had not been locked?  Would they have just walked right in? 

I would consider that to be very offensive and unfortunately not a safe situation for the child or her mother.  There are people who would use a weapon if someone were trying to break into their house and twisting the knob, much less actually opening the door, seems way too much like someone breaking into the house!

Twisting the knob is testing for possibility of entry... that IS breaking in!

What the heck?!!!  Were they expecting to walk in and present you the order form?  (Mom and kid could be "surprising" a homeowner who has a baseball bat or worse :o).

The really good chinese restaurant near my office. We go there several times a month, food is good, great, quick service, and lunch specials are cheap.

So today we go, and we order. And wait. and wait some more. we got our soup, but not our meals.  and then wait some more. Meanwhile, they are running around doing takeout orders, and seating others after us. Who ALL got their food within 10-15 minutes. we asked them twice was it coming, and got no apology, and just excuses that they were busy with lots of takeout, and yes yes yes, its coming. then they disappeared. So after 45 minutes, and nothing, we left. IF you can't even apologize or admit (as we suspect) you forgot our orders, then sorry, you don't get our business. Today, or in the future.

A certain car rental place. We had reserved a car for the weekend and DH was supposed to pick it up at 11am. Except, they didn't have any for the 8 people who had reservations. It is a holiday weekend here so all rental cars are spoken for.  They arg now saying they may have cars by 4.   ::)

There could also be a dog inside who would bite strangers walking into his home. Of course a dog must always be in control out in public but inside his own home against people breaking in?

My mother in laws dog bit a child who just wandered into her house. Child was old enough to know better. Poor dog had to spend 10 days at the city pound in quarentine and developed kennel cough. Which equaled vet bills for MIL. Nothing happened to the boy for essentially breaking into someones home because he had 'suffered enough'.
