Expression USED On Occasion BY Most People

This phrase is used if somebody is blocking your view. It’s a way of asking somebody to move out of the way. Since your body is dense, nobody can see through it - hence it being compared to a door, rather than a window - something you can see through.

“You make a better door than a window” “Oops! Sorry, I’ll move out of the way”
