mmm...i'm a little surprised by the number of people who don't know what the sock means. either they haven't been to college, or they were REALLY unlucky for four years...

@ 7 & 11 I'm assuming I'm probably the same generation as OP's mom and I think the sock thing is fairly new. It used to be a tie on the door knob. A sock on the door knob just meant you were a slob

#15 very good :D

1) Never ever give your parents the key to your apartment. Only if you're on vacation and someone has to take care of the cats. Or plants.
2) Like #15 said, lock the damn door if you're fucking.

Well, you could always push some furniture behind your door.

#15: If you live alone, a locked door is all you need. If you have a roommate, who has a key to your shared dorm room, you need some other symbol. A sock on the door has become a college way to signal your roommate not to come in -- somewhat less awkward than either calling to say "hey, I'm going to have sex for a while" or having him/her walk in on you.

In this case, though, OP has his own apartment and his mom obviously isn't his roommate. More than that, it's a brand new apartment. Either he didn't lock his door, or the first thing he did when he got his new apartment was take a key to his mother. YDI, totally.

Well where my brother-in-law went to college the door doesn't have a real lock, it had a deadbolt sort of thing that anyone could just walk into your room in the middle of the night. His roommate had this creepy guy walk right into his room in the middle of the night and watched him sleep. The college is pretty ghetto though

#1, a sock is sort of the universal collegiate symbol not to enter because someone is getting laid.
however, it is more than likely your parents are not going to assume that off the bat...i would suggest locking the door in the future.

See. Instead of taking the time to find a sock, make sure it's clean, head out to the door, open the door, shove the sock onto the door, close the door, open the door to make sure the sock is still on and close the door again, I would have just LOCKED THE DAMN DOOR
