Today I came home from work to find a couple having an argument right outside our door. They didn't really notice me trying to get in till I took the keys out of my handbag and gave them a little jangle. This isn't the first time something like this has happened and it won't be the last, as our front door is right between two businesses. We often get hoards of smokers in front as there's a cigarette bin just next to our door. One time I came home from Centra to find a homeless woman peeing in our doorway. And whilst I waited for her to finish up with her bio-vandalism, she shouted some amount of drunken abuse at me. I'm really fed up. That is why I've decided that I'm going to paint the door bright effing yellow, like the one above. I don't care what my landlord thinks and I don't know if it will help, but It will definitely make it more noticable and recognizable as a residential building.
