What Does A Half Open Garage Door Mean?

You've probably heard that an upsidedown pineapple on clothing or in a shopping cart is a "signal that someone is a swinger or looking for a swinger party" but have you heard the rumor that if you see someone's garage door halfway open it means the same thing?

"Half-open garage doors in the suburbs... is it true?

Rumor has it that if you leave your garage door half-open it means you're into swinging and available that night. Is this true?"

As you can imagine, the majority of the replies simply crack jokes about it all, although a few people claim that the rumor is true.

There are numerous message boards and stories around the internet talking about the half-open garage swinger signal, but opinions seem to be split 50/50 as to whether or not it's true.

So, why are talking about this?

It's certainly not to vilify anyone for their lifestyle, but rather to make sure you aren't sending the wrong signals to the people in your neighborhood.

Many times I've left our garage door partially open at home for one of our cats.

There are many innocent reasons you might have your garage door partially open, just know that it may possibly be sending an untended message to those looking for it.

Or, this could all be complete rubbish.

According to thesun.co.uk, here are other signs that signal your neighbor might be a swinger.

LOOK: See how much gasoline cost the year you started driving

To find out more about how has the price of gas changed throughout the years, Stacker ran the numbers on the cost of a gallon of gasoline for each of the last 84 years. Using data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (released in April 2020), we analyzed the average price for a gallon of unleaded regular gasoline from 1976 to 2020 along with the Consumer Price Index (CPI) for unleaded regular gasoline from 1937 to 1976, including the absolute and inflation-adjusted prices for each year.

Read on to explore the cost of gas over time and rediscover just how much a gallon was when you first started driving.
