This Door is Closed to You

Yesterday I was sitting in McDonalds enjoying an uber healthy lunch of hamburger, fries and an apple pie when I saw the strangest thing. I was in the back of the restaurant near a door. I sat there and watched a guy outside walk away from the door twice. Both times he hesitated as if he was going to try the door, but he never did. The only thing remarkable about the door was the fact that there was a big yellow sign on it. The sign did not say "do not open" or "out of order." It said to remove your hood for security purposes. The man was not wearing a hood.

Shortly after that I saw a woman walk past me and the door all the way to the front of the building, out the front door and back around the side of the building, past me and past that door. Again, someone else avoiding the door.

Next up was a man and his child. They approached the door and the man said "I bet this is locked." They did not try the door.

So I sat there and pondered.

What made these people not even try to open the door? Was it the yellow sign? Was it the fact that they had tried it before and it was locked? Did they need the exercise of walking around the entire building?

I was tempted to actually exit through the door myself to show everyone it could be done, while shouting:

JUST OPEN THE DOOR!!

Then I realized I was parked out front.

How could you walk away without at least attempting to open the door? This locked, possibly unlocked, door is going to haunt me for the rest of the afternoon and longer if I don't go out tonight. And I really want french fries and apple pie right now.

You should have went thru it anyways!

And I do not think people were using the further away door because they wanted to get some exercise. After all, they were eating at McDonalds!

Ooooh what a way to be curious, why didn't you try opening it?:)

u = me bursting outloud and my man saying " what is wrong with you in there? "

Jamie - it puzzled me for quite some time. I hope, for your sake, you went out that night. No one needs to be haunted for that long ;)

Jenny - I should have! And you are right, no one eating McDonalds cares that much about health.

Andhari - I was chicken and then I was hurrying back to the office.

Blaez - that would so happen to us too!!
