    "I am outside the door." Is it correct?

    "I am waiting outside your door."

    Is this expression proper?

    Thanks,

    It's grammatically correct. What did you think might be wrong with it?
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    It should be grammatically correct. Just not sure if it is a normal way people use when you are going to pick someone up and waiting outside their apartment, you call them and say you are outside their place. Is this expression proper? Thanks.
