you obviously never had sex in college.

You are watching: What does a sock on the doorknob mean

a sock on the door is the worldwide symbol of: civilization are gaining it on in below, remain out.
mmm...i'm a little surprised by the variety of world that don't recognize what the sock means. either they haven't been to college, or they were REALLY unlucky for four years...
actually, that's not true. i'm presently in college and the sign for having sex isn't a sock on the door. it's locking the damned thing.
7 & 11 I'm assuming I'm more than likely the very same generation as OP's mommy and I think the sock point is sensibly new. It provided to be a tie on the door knob. A sock on the door knob just supposed you were a slob
#1 Lock your door!#2 Ask your mother to respect your privacy and also knock prior to entering regardmuch less of if it's a supincrease.
#15 incredibly excellent :D1) Never before ever before give your parents the key to your apartment. Only if you're on vacation and also someone has to take care of the cats. Or plants.2) Like #15 sassist, lock the damn door if you're fucking.
Yeah, at my college, we'd use midgets. They'd stand exterior and also keep guard. It's again, one of those symbolic techniques that we gain used to.
#15: If you live alone, a locked door is all you need. If you have a roommate, that has actually a crucial to your shared dorm room, you require some various other symbol. A sock on the door has actually come to be a college method to signal your roommate not to come in -- rather much less awkward than either calling to say "hey, I'm going to have actually sex for a while" or having him/her walk in on you.In this situation, though, OP has his very own apartment and also his mommy obviously isn't his roommate. More than that, it's a brand also brand-new apartment. Either he didn't lock his door, or the first thing he did when he got his new apartment was take an essential to his mommy. YDI, completely.
I never offered my mommy the crucial to my apartment - the landlord let her in to my apartment a couple of times as soon as I didn't want her in the building at all
cxal - I think even in the US, the landlord demands to offer 24 hrs alert. Tell him not to break the regulation anyeven more.OP: install a door chain.
well initially of when you say apartment i really dont emmidiatly think around college (perhaps its just a wrong translation on my component since im dutch..)and secondly even in college they have locks on the doors.. ydi all the way
Well wright here my brother-in-regulation checked out college the door doesn't have actually a actual lock, it had a deadbolt kind of thing that anyone might just walk into your room in the middle of the night. His roommate had actually this creepy man walk appropriate into his room in the middle of the night and watched him sleep. The college is pretty ghetto though
#1, a sock is sort of the universal collegiate symbol not to enter because someone is gaining lassist.but, it is even more than likely your parental fees are not going to assume that off the bat...i would certainly suggest locking the door in the future.
See. Instead of taking the moment to uncover a sock, make sure it's clean, head out to the door, open the door, shove the sock onto the door, close the door, open the door to make sure the sock is still on and also cshed the door aobtain, I would certainly have actually just LOCKED THE DAMN DOOR
Today, my mother was sneaking with my underwear and found my prophylactics and also the bills from the hospital wright here I had my IUD put. She then began yelling...
