There are two types of doors in Target: automatic doors and doors you have to push or pull.
As I was leaving Target a few days ago (you know, after buying all the things I DIDN’T need), I saw the girl beside me walk through an automatic door, and as I started to walk through mine, it didn’t move. I stared at it for a second like it was broken before I realized it was a push/pull door – not automatic.
I walked through it, and outside, laughing at myself. The automatic door girl saw the whole thing and we laughed together. I said, “Just pretend you didn’t see that,” to which she replied, “Don’t worry, I’ve done that plenty of times.”
After we parted ways, still laughing at my little moment, I started thinking about how I just expected my door to be automatic just because the girl beside me walked through one. And isn’t that life?
