Ever walk down a crowded hallway only to have everyone try to cram through one door at the end of it? Only because it’s already open? It doesn’t matter f there are 3 or 10 other doors everyone tries to take the path of least resistance, or effort.

Neat Idea! now if we could just work on the door issues I’d be a happy camper.
