no. 39 ...

a few nights ago, i pushed on the door to the ghetto spur and it wouldn't budge. i pushed again and added a grunt, but it stayed shut. one more for good measure, it wouldn't open.

they must be getting robbed, i assumed, then entered via the out door to the left. it yanked open easily. i looked back at the other door and noticed a sign bigger than my torso directly at eye level that said "please use other door."

oh.

the boys behind the counter were laughing.

"you're number 39," one told me.
the 39th person who did not see the humongoid sign on the door and spent five minutes headbutting the glass and swearing.

in the time it tooke me to grab a powerade and some string cheese i saw Nos. 40, 41, 42, 43 and 44. in fact, no one saw the sign and immediately went to the other door. it was a great science experiment. i could have watched all day.
