ONE OF THE signs of how modern life has changed can be seen in attitudes towards opening the front door.

There was a heated discussion among some Twitter users today about whether people open the front door or not if someone calls unexpectedly – with the responses suggesting that it’s something more common among people under 35 – while the topic is a frequent discussion point on many internet message boards.

Over to you: Do you answer the front door when you don’t know who is calling?

Poll Results:

Nope (5282)
Depends on whether it's day or night (4207)
