Beware the automatic door
Okay, this confuses me to no end. Why is there a sign on every automatic door in the world that says "Caution"? I mean was there a rash of automatic door accidents that prompted this sign?
I don't even understand why it is necessary to use caution whilst entering an automatic door.
Often when approaching an automatic door I will alert any companions to the dangers ahead.
"BE CAREFUL!!!! There is an automatic door."
I postulate that far more people run into non-automatic doors thinking that the door will open for them, I have even seen this on occasion. I have never spied a sign saying "Caution, normal door". You would think that sign would come in more handy.
