What that Sock Your Roommate Put on the Doorknob Really Means

When your college roommate places a sock on the doorknob, it’s a nonverbal warning that you should avoid entering because they are in the middle of having sex and don’t want to be interrupted. However, there are additional nuances to the message you need to become familiar with so you truly understand everything your roommate is trying to convey.

Print this out and keep it in your wallet until graduation day. It just might save you some embarrassment.
