Leroy had studied the theory of doors, but forgot that the school door was of the pull variety, and unfortunately, he wasn't tall enough to read the sign.

Is physics his teacher taught him that nothing actually pulls in the universe but only pushes.

He speculated that the school must be closed and he went home.

They ran out of signs for the inside (and the LH outside) that say "Push to open" so just put "PULL" on the non-push doors.

Besides, who reads the signs!! As an engineer, I usually look at the hinges.

How to handle this door? push the left side open, when passing through, and push the right side when entering from the other side? and injuries will be avoided.

It's the door to Lyn's personal business. PULL stands for Push Unless Lyn Left.

And for the left, “losing is the new winning”,... so I’m marking that post OT also.

Because you’re a winner.

And you’re welcome.

Really impressive and creative art work.

I hope it was done in some sort of weather-resistant paint, and not in Chalk, and would therefore, resist wearing thin in a short while...
