Is "dropping by" rude? It's Scott and Sadie's Life Court

FAKE judge for a REAL problem!

Here's Friday's Life Court...

Scott and Sadie,

One of my big pet peeves is people who just show up to your house without texting or calling first. I just find it presumptuous and rude. What if you're in the middle of something? Or having a really bad day and want to be left alone? Is it so hard just to give one a heads up?

My mother mentioned that she was planning to surprise me by driving the 9 hours from KC and just showing up at my house randomly (something she would totally do) and I told her please never do that.

She got really offended and gave me the "but I'm your mom!" guilt trip. I told her that's fine, but I HATE surprises and just call first. Now she thinks I have something to hide.

I don't. I just really value my privacy. And I have a lot going on. If someone alerts me first, I can move some stuff around. Does that make sense?

In Life Court, I'd like to ask your listeners if they are cool with people just showing up? Even your parents? Am I just a prickly, horrible person?



Interesting. What's your advice for Megan in Scott and Sadie's Life Court?
