If a bathroom door is fully closed, I always knock. I mean, does that not make sense? Wouldn't you rather take the 2seconds to knock and make sure no one is in there, rather than risking walking in on someone. I grew up with the rule, when a door is completely closed, it means the room is occupied, and you shouldn't just barge in without giving a warning.

My grandpa was the one who installed this rule into me, "closed door, especially with the light on = occupied. Door open = obviously free."

Just creates confusion.
