People Who Try Locked Doors
May 9, 2016 10:28am CST
I was waiting for the local library to open today after its irritating lunch-time recess. As the 2pm opening got closer, more people were queuing and waiting to get in. Despite the queue and in some cases even asking if the library was open yet and being told no, several newcomers walked past the queue to try the doors for themselves, finding, (surprise surprise) that they were locked. Why can’t people accept what is patently obvious? Arthur Chappell

At a few different jobs, I've watched as clients tug at the locked door. If it doesn't open the first time, I don't know why they think it will open the second time. Then they tend to stare in the building or look at their watch and point to it.
@arthurchappell I often wondered that same thing. If someone is standing outside to wait for something to open don't the people understand that they could have tried to door themselves to see if it was open or not. or standing there because it is not open yet.

Lol people are so impatient.Fine if they are impatient but it will make me angry if someone sees people in a queue but they feel their hurry is more and pass a queue to try a locked door.What are they trying to prove? the ones standing waiting are not good enough?

@arthurchappell many people are very impatient. I think it is this crazy world that has made them that way. I remember once back in NYC waiting in line for a store to open. A very stressed man yanked that locked door so hard about just a minute before opening and dislocated his shoulder. As we entered the store the ambulance was pulling up and the man was shouting about suing the store
