character

We made the mistake of leaving our porch light on this past Halloween so unlike past years, we actually got some trick or treaters coming to our door.

It occurred to me that you can tell a lot about a person's character by the way he or she rings the doorbell and/or knocks on the door.

You have the very insistent type who keep ringing the doorbell repeatedly, racking up your electricity bill from all that current they generate as they keep pushing the button. On top of that they think you may not have heard the bell so they have to pound on the door as well.

Then you have the more normal types who ring the bell and then wait a reasonable amount of time before ringing it again. Or doing the same with knocking on the door.

I think these habits stay with people as they grow up. You can pretty much tell which ones used to be the incessant doorbell ringers/knockers when they were kids, haha.
