Trini Guide To Approaching A Home Caribbean / Tobago & Trinidad
If no one is responding after ringing the door bell or making a voice call, don't assume that it is alright to just push the gate open and walk around the house. Use your cell phone to call the person and announce that you are outside when your friend answers the phone.
Don't destroy the person's gate by rattling it in order to get someone's attention.
You may ask the neighbour, (if he/she is outside), if the person is home.
After you press the door bell or call and a vicious dog runs up to the gate, don't pelt stones or tease it. Just step away from the gate and hope that the dog's barking will alert the person.
