I’ve posted before about some of the makeshift signage that features in my workplace. Last time, it was cryptic instructions on how to find a meeting room that legend insisted didn’t exist.

Today, I noticed this one at a secure entrance to a department. Seems that the card sensor gadget (direction indicated) hasn’t been enough of a clue and the people on the other side of the door, sick with passing chimpanzees trying to pull the door from its hinges, have resorted to this crude alert, pinned on with Blu Tac.

Except for some reason, the designer has become nervous about being understood and, to spell out the ideal order of events, has pinned the word “FIRST” on the end of the request.

Cue aforementioned chimps swiping their cards and then rattling the bloody door anyway.
