#44: A Polite Emergency
The sign on this exit door is a little confusing. It’s a fire exit only, so one would expect there would be alarms going off if you use this door. But, on the other hand, the sign admonishes users not to wake sleeping guests. So, hotel, which one is it?
It’s pretty clear that this door must be available for use any time of day, not only when there’s an emergency. Still, the sign had us laughing at the image of trying not to wake sleeping guests when a fire alarm is ringing. Although, we have to appreciate the hotel’s courtesy to people who are trying to sleep.
