Need To Address This State Of Undress

, , , , | Related | September 11, 2017

(My dad tends to walk into the bathroom without knocking, and then get mad at whoever he walked in on for not locking the door. He also just walks into our rooms randomly. My sisters and I, all in our teens, keep trying to get him to stop. One day, he walks into my room while I’m changing.)

Dad: “Hey—oh, for the love of God!” *backs into hallway* “You should have told me you were changing!”

Me: “Okay, that does it. The door was closed! You have four daughters. When a door is closed, KNOCK ON THE F***ING DOOR before you just walk in!”

Dad: “Don’t use that language with me.”

Me: “Then stop barging into rooms! Doors are closed for a reason!”

Dad: “I live here! This is my house! I can do whatever I want.”

(The next day my sisters and I are all wearing really short shorts and sports bras in the kitchen.)

Dad: “What are y’all wearing?! Put some clothes on!”

Sister #1: “We live here. It’s our house. We can do whatever we want.”

Me: “If you don’t want to see us wearing things like this, why do you never knock on the bathroom door? Or our bedroom doors?”

Sister #2: “So, we decided it doesn’t matter. If you’re going to barge in on us all the time and occasionally see us in random states of undress, then why shouldn’t we be in various states of undress all the time?”

Sister #3: “If you want us to wear what you think are decent clothes, you need to learn to knock on doors.”

Dad: “That’s—”

Me: “That’s how it is. Period.”

Dad: “I’m the parent. You listen to me.”

Sister #1: “If it bothers you seeing us dress like this, maybe you should KNOCK ON CLOSED DOORS to lessen the chances of seeing us like this, hmm?”

(He tried to ground us, but Mom overruled him and sided with us. He now knocks on any closed door.)
