Common sense failures–which do you see most often?(r/AskReddit)

As a locksmith, this one drives me insane. I can be working on one of six doors on the front of a building, tools spread around me, ladder in the way, lock parts everywhere, sometimes even a strip of CAUTION tape across the doorway, and where do people try to go through? One of the five unobstructed doors available? No, they hopscotch over my work area because they see a way to get outside without pushing a door open. Even if I prop one of the other doors open, I still get about 1 in 5 people that try to duck through the doorway I’m working in. Fucking insane! My favorite example was a door at a school, where I was using a 1.5HP Porter Cable mortiser to install a lock in. So I’m there with hearing protection and safety glasses operating a 90db power tool that’s shooting a rooster tail of sawdust 15 feet and a bloody teacher ducks under the CAUTION – DO NOT ENTER tape to go through. I shut off the machine and said “HEY! Can’t you read?” His reply? “I thought that only applied to students.” No, fuckwit, power tools will hurt teachers too.
