When, where, time of day, location, and why or why not?

If there was a gif of nicname thwarting the attempted-flag-taker and then gesturing him to suck it, followed by motioning for all of Hilton Shelter to boo him louder, it'd be better than that auburn gif.

How often do you lock your doors?

I have double locks on my front door. I unlock and lock the top one 3 times in a row. I then leave the top one unlocked and lock and unlocked the bottom lock 3 times in a row. I then turn the knob twice in each direction. I then lock both locks at the same time with different hands and then I wake up from a dream because I don’t actually do any of that.

Car - locked when I'm not in it
House - locked only if I'm leaving on an airplane

sometimes i'll get anxiety about whether or not i locked the car so i'll walk outside and while most people would probably just hit the lock button i go try the handle to confirm if i did, in fact, lock it.

Car. Every time I exit.

House. Rarely ever.

I just double tap if I hear my door knob turn.

why would you not lock your door as a neutral state? what's the upside of just letting your door male genitals wag around like a rough ridin' dog tail?

When I sneak into other people’s houses, THE FIRST thing I do is lock the door. They usually mumble something like “gosh, I don’t remember locking that” as they walk through the door.  It’s hilarious.

My wife locks them, I never remember/doesn't bother me.

This is pretty much my house currently, though we are all pretty casual about locking our house. I don't drive highly valuable cars, but family suv is always locked in the garage. For my cars I typically only lock it when in area where thieves are more likely to lurk (mall parking lots, downtowns, etc). Also lock if have someone else's valuable property inside or leaving wallet/cash inside.

I grew up, as prob many of us did in a high-trust culture in small-town No. Central Kansas. Hardly anyone I know locked up much of anything. Churches weren't locked, etc.

Everyone feeling like they have to lock everything up and protect their valuables is one of many symptoms of a low-trust society.

We all know time and place, but it's not like there is a threat lurking around every corner.
If there was a gif of nicname thwarting the attempted-flag-taker and then gesturing him to suck it, followed by motioning for all of Hilton Shelter to boo him louder, it'd be better than that auburn gif.

I will never understand that mindset, and I grew up in So. Central Kansas. It takes less than a second to lock your car door, or door door. Why the eff not do it? Just to feel good about a "trust culture"?

Never thought about locking doors until moved to manhattan for college.

We normally only lock our door at night, but we’ve been locking it 24/7 lately because we have a Kimmy Gibbler situation.

Yes, white Midwesterners love to brag about not locking doors because it shows they don't have big city problems

I try to lock all the doors at night and if we are out of town. Forgot to close the garage door last night. I try to keep it closed because last year we had a bird get trapped in the garage and then break a window trying to escape. Also, individuals looking for tools to convert into money for drugs have been known to rummage around in open garages. A few years ago, a drunk person wandered onto my neighbor's enclosed back porch and crashed around. The police were able to bring the situation to a bloodless conclusion.

forgetting to close the garage door is my nightmare. there is a small window on my garage that tilts inwards to open, and i left it open for ventilation one night when we were out of town a few years ago. got completely cleaned out.

My senior year of college I didn't even have a key to the house we were renting, some of my roommates did but I didn't.
