Do you lock the doors to your office while at work?

I close my door, but people still open em without knocking! Drives me nuts, but I never say anything to them. Should I just lock them while I am at work?

Why not just say something. Now instead of saying "come in" you have to get up and open it and get the constant weird looks of "why is your door locked"

Grow a pair and speak up!

I lock the outside door to the studios when I am the only one there. (All the artists have keys.) If I don't lock the door, strange people come in and wander around the halls. I mean strange people that aren't other artists.

When the downstairs businesses are open, I have no problem with that. Let them deal with the weirdos.

I leave the door to my personal studio not only unlocked, but open. A customer from the downstairs galleries may wander up, and I might sell them something.

The artist across the hall keeps her door closed, and her blinds down. (there are windows into the hallway) The artist around the corner is never there, so I don't know.

All I can say is I wish I had an office door to lock! It's kinda hard to get any privacy when working in a cluster of desks.

Every day I put up a toilet paper door to my cubicle. Every day I lock that door with tape. Every day the cleaning crew come through and tear it down.

They are mean to me.

Mine's on a key card system so only 3 other people in the building can get it. Kind of sucks if I start choking on a peanut.

I only lock my office door if I'm out of the building. I keep sensitive materials locked up within my office and close my door if I need privacy. People know to knock before entering. If I'm involved in something where I need to be uninterupted I just don't answer the door and nobody just opens it and comes in.

We've got three people in a secure room. We have to swipe a key card to get in, and push a button to get out.

Food isn't allowed, which reduces the choking hazard.

I think this is one of those backhanded bragging threads ("I have an office with a door, do YOU?")

I deliver pizzas, so my car is my office. However, while at work I only lock my doors if there is a homeless minority near the vehicle.

Nah. I use to close the door to my office during nap time, but besides that...I usually kept it open. People are going to come in anyway, and i'm too lazy to keep closing it.
