Dropping In

Just came across this discussion over at Ask Metafilter on the dos and don'ts of social visits, specifically whether visitors should call first or feel comfortable just showing up at one's door.

Up in Brisbane, the drop-in was - for the most part - OK at our place and at family-friends' places. Canberra seems to be more of a call-first town.

I reckon a quick call's not too much to ask for. It gives me a chance to make sure the apartment isn't too untidy and check that I've got some food & drink to offer. Or I might not be home.

What's the go in your neck of the woods?

What's your position on the social drop-in?
"I love it when friends drop by, it is a spontaneous gift of friendship and a sign that you are really close and comfortable with the other people."
An occassional unexpected visit is ok, but not if it's a habit.
Visitors should call and check if a visit is ok.
