Commentary on a closet door

I’m back home after a week in San Francisco topped by a red-eye flight out of the place. But I wanted to get this down before I forgot about it.

The closet door at the San Francisco Marriott Marquis played a little trick on me every day I was there. See those door knobs? They don’t turn. You just pull on them to open the door. But they look like they turn.

So every time I opened the closet, my brain did this weird routine:

I need to get in the closet. Hey, why is my closet door locked? Oh, that’s right, you can’t turn these knobs.

There’s a moral in there about defying user expectations, but I am too tired to figure it out right know.
