When do you say that? How would you say it another way? Shut the front door!

You'd say it when someone left the front door open. You could also say "Close the door." At my grandmother's house, if someone left the door open she'd ask "Were you born in a barn?" It basically suggested that you had the manners of a barn animal and didn't know enough to close the door.

"Close the front door" This phrase is also used by some people as a substitute for saying the vulgar phrase "Shut the f*ck up" in some southern states in the USA Hope this helps :)
