Office socks

It's pretty well-known that if you're in college and you want to let your roommate know that you're having sex and therefore he or she should not enter the room, you put a sock on the door handle. At work, when people are busy with an interview or just won't want to be interrupted, they put a sticky note on their door that says "EMAIL ONLY." I wonder how many people would get it if I just stuck a sock on my door handle instead.

On the show Undeclared it was a scrunchie.

Probably not a lot. I never heard about the sock. I don't think that the signal varies from college to college.

I knew about the sock before I ever went to college. Actually, I don't know if I ever heard of anyone refer to that tradition at college at all. I was in the nerd dorm, so it probably just never came up.

That's why they call them business socks...cause it's business time.
