I'm not usually very aloof, but certain things I take for granted--like properly functioning doorways. This is especially true for businesses that rely on customers to actually walk into the establishment. Nothing irritates me more than visiting a restaurant that has a double door entrance with one door locked.
Sounds crazy huh? Not so! It happens to me ALL THE TIME. I can't even count how many times I've walked into a locked door while the other one mocks me.
Besides making me look stupid, being bad for business, and not making any god damned sense, isn't that a fire hazard? There doesn't appear to be a pattern, for sometimes the left door is locked and sometimes the right. It's gotten to the point now that I am paranoid of double doors. I apprehensively test them like hot frying pan handles before moving forward.
Would someone who's worked in a restaurant or movie theatre please give me an insight into why this practice is so prevalent? Does the staff just get a kick out of it or is there a legitimate reason?
