The doorbell these days signals the arrival of a delivery. My kid says they must think I’m high because I carry on a short but friendly conversation with almost everyone at the door.

I’ve usually NOT been excited to hear the doorbell ring, unless I was specifically expecting someone or something such as a delivery. I don’t think this has anything to do with age, unless OP is old enough to predate telephones

Getting a video doorbell may be the best home improvement I’ve made. Motion/rug alert, I look to see who it is and if I don’t want to deal with them I ignore them. Or if they insist, I tell them to go the fuck away.
