Pet Peeve #112

(rant) People who hit the automatic door-open button on doors when they don't have to. Those buttons, you may notice, have the little wheelchair symbol on them. The same one painted two feet square in handicapped parking spaces. That means that those buttons, their magical powers, and the electricity and wear implied in their use, are intended for the benefit of the either temporarily or permanently physically disabled. If you aren't using crutches, a cane, a walker, in a wheelchair or scooter, suffering from an unfortunate lack of arms, or at least pushing a stroller or gigantic unweildy shopping cart, then you don't need to press the button. Use your hand, and pull or push the door open. It's not that hard, I swear. I AM TALKING TO YOU, LULULEMON-BEDECKED TEENAGE GIRL AND FRIENDS. And if swinging open a door that probably requires two pounds of exertion, max, is so strenuous that you suddenly suffer a massive coronary, then I suggest you get your ass to the gym.

(/rant) How does one make the triangle brackets appear in LJ without LJ interpreting them as html, anyway?
