I said this to someone I don't personally know, who had signed my packet when I am not at home. I wanted to tell him do not do this again next time. I said this sentence but his friends seemed to be offended and shut the door. What does "you don't have to do this next time" mean in this context? is it a rude sentence?

Many good questions generate some degree of opinion based on expert experience, but answers to this question will tend to be almost entirely based on opinions, rather than facts, references, or specific expertise. If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.
It is neither offensive nor rude in its own meaning. To me, I would be required to see how you said it to understand why they shut the door, maybe they were just trying to help and did not expect your comment. Add a please next time and specify why you don't want them to do it next time to avoid any misunderstandings if you feel like it is worth it.
