Stick a Note On It, That’ll Fix the Problem

There’s a door in the office that the building managers would like to remain closed. Lest there be any doubt, there is a sticky note in place to keep us on task.


All the sticky notes in the world won’t make up for the following facts.

  • There is a closer mounted on the door that moves with excruciating slowness and resists attempts to push it shut.
  • No one is going to wait for that.
  • Once the closer gets the door to the jamb, it sticks because the door is just a tiny bit too wide.

I pass by the door several times a day, and I dutifully pull it shut. I hope in my small way I can make it feel a little more secure.
