Hard-wired Indicators

I was waiting in line, actually, more like in dot, because I was the only person waiting, at my favorite coffee shop, for the restroom. I see the light is on, I figure it’s occupied. I go outside for a smoke, I come back… still occupied.

Took me more than 10 minutes to figure “hey, no one is coming out. Maybe because there’s no one inside?”

I go to check, and yes, indeed the restroom was available.

We have these hard-wired indicators in our head. At least that’s a better situation than wrong indicators.

Oh damn, when I left I forgot the lights on…
