Hearing the door lock behind you after you leave someone’s house is a sad sound.

Better than you hear the door lock behind you as you enter their room…. alone… in the dark…


It’s reassuring – I know they’re as safe as they’re going to be after I leave


Hearing the door lock after you leave your own house might be disturbing.


I get what you’re saying, and why it seems sad, but honestly it’s probably just a convenience thing and is nothing personal at all. I lock the door when guests leave for two reasons. 1. So I don’t have to come back and do it later. 2. So I don’t FORGET to come back and do it later. Also, could just be habit. If my friends need to come back for any reason, I happily unlock the door.


I’m just paranoid. If you need back in, knock.. damn 😂
