My grandparents NEVER locked any door to their house, not even at night, because one of us might need to get in for whatever reason.  What we would be doing coming in at 4 in the morning I never figured out, but it was nice to know that the option was there.  Then about ten years back there was a rape on the RR tracks near the house and it made my grandmother nervous so they decided to start locking the doors at night.

My grandfather had to have a locksmith over to change all the locks because that was when he realized that no one had a key to the house, including himself.  He also realized that he couldn't actually remember when the last time he or anyone else had actually had one.  He then proceeded to have about thirty keys made, one for every adult member of the family.

I remember reading a story in the local paper 25 years ago where the police were trying to get people to lock up so the paper covered both sides of the story and one of the more compelling reasons to NOT lock your doors was then the dry cleaners couldn't put your cleaning in your house.  Mr. Funke would just walk in and hang your dry cleaning on an interior door and leave a bill safety-pinned to the top piece. The paper asked what else he could do and he couldn't come up with an alternative except to stop delivery. They asked "what about hanging it from the storm door?" and he said that was no good. Not because it would get stolen but because it might get dirty when the wind blew and he'd have to clean it again...
 
As far as I know, they still open your front door to leave it off but maybe they just hang onto it if you're not home.
 
See, now THAT'S service.
 
Truth be told, the environment has changed pretty significantly in our neighborhood in the last 4-5 years.  I actually don't like the fact that I can't fit my truck in the garage, 'cause the carloads of sleazebags that pull into/away from the drug-dealing wackos' house across the street every 15 minutes are really starting to creep me out.  {#Confused}

Yeah, I saw a report on that on the news last night. (maybe that's what you posted.) My daughter said people use it to get restaurant discounts or something, but still...

Thanks for posting this. It blows my mind when I see folks advertising on LinkedIn that they're on a trip somewhere. It reads, "Hey! Come rob me blind. I'm stupid enough to ask for it!"
