    Oh yeah like I'm the only one guilty of doing

    that. Maybe the rest of you aren't as bad because with me it seems to be an everytime thing. Makes me feel stupid that I do that, like I can't tell you the difference between the two. Guess I can't if it takes me more than one try to get it right.

    Yes - why is that??? And

    not only push when I should pull, I always go right when it opens left and vice versa - I find it really annoying that I continually do this ....

    I'm a fairly smart person.

    I can read. I know right from left. Why do I always read the sign that clearly says 'PULL' and then push? I also pull the push door and use this door when the sign says to use that door.

    I was pushing on a pull door once,

    and the lady behind the reception desk yelled: "It's a pull!" I pulled the door open, and said to her: "Thanks. My next idea was to try to lift up from the bottom."

    It's so embarrassing

    when I'm sitting there, pushing a door that won't open. So, then I assume that I broke the door and the store manager is going to come over to me any minute and be furious with me. So I start panicking, only to realize that the door says pull. Then, I feel like the biggest idiot...
