My mum does occasionally despite more than once knocking and I yell "just a minute!" And peer through through the cracked door. Then say "okay count to 10 then open the door because I'm in my undies" and then I run upstairs.Seriously!!???!!! She KNOWS we are pantless people. She's also dropped in a few times then called to ask where we are. Lol. Sorry WELL we would have been home had you called ahead.

My MIL was doing this. I nipped it in the bud by telling her 'oh, you should have called, we are literally running out the door right now' then picking up my baby and handbag and going outside. Then hiding around the corner till she drove off and going back inside

I know how frustrating it is when people don't let you know they are going to drop in, but he is your Dad and you don't want it to become a *thing* between you. Let it rest for a while and see if he keeps it up and if necessary sit him down and say 'I love having you here, but I also love feeling on top of things before I open the door to anyone, even my dad'. Good luck

Oh I forgot to add, once MIL popped in unannounced, I was out and she was right behind me, so when I walked in the door she arrived... DH (her son) didn't know she was there and opened the door in his undies... and nothing else😝 needless to say she now calls before popping in!!!

The only person I have a call before you come rule for is My Single Sister. She doesn't get family life. She doesn't get that not everyone is perfect.
Other then that.. If you drop by and my house is a Mess & I am in my PJ's.. Then you have to put up with it.. you dropped in unannounced. The only requirement I have among everyone except my sister is Let me know by 4pm if you want dinner. Then I have time to go buy more meat if need be.

We have a right to privacy and our own life and you should not expect us to drop everything and cater to you as you are not more important than the rest of us.
We invite you over regularly...and you are welcome to call to invite yourself but please understand that we will not always say yes.
She tried again to come over unannounced after that, and I wouldn't let her in (answered the door and politely explained we were busy , then closed the door and walked away).
