Today Friend Pat took me to the Alameda Kaiser for lab work. It is an old building with lovely woodwork in the building and a split wooden front door with brass push plates. There is an automatic door opener button. I didn't notice the button and pushed the doors open and we walked in.
A man rushed over and scolded us for not using the automatic opener. I first thought he was worried for poor puny me. No, he said, " Pushing the doors open is hard on them. Use the automatic opener." Really, either way the door opens. Seems like the same amount of stress would happen.
