Default I'm Going to Post a Note On My Front Door

I'm going to post instructions on my door on how to open a door. Yes some people are idiots and forget to push in while turning the door knob. I was in the kitchen feeding the kids breakfast when someone pounds on the door like it was an emergency or something so I go running to the door i opend and said it wasn't locked dcm said it wouldn't open I didn't want to break your door. Turn and push you ding bat the last five parents that arrived before you had no problems opening the door.

If she can't open a door knob, I certainly wouldn't assume that she can read a note, comprehend the contents and then follow directions...

not funny that she broke your door, but funny that people can be so, duh!

I once had a parent who could open the door, but apparently couldn't figure out how to get out without breaking it. He opened it, but then somehow got hooked to a latch in the middle of the door that holds up the glass in the summer so you can adjust the amount of air coming in and broke it right off!

Amusing, but I have had this happen. I always tell parents to come right in and keep the door unlocked for pick up and drop off times. Well, a few months in and I FINALLY figured out a dcm kept knocking because she couldn't open my door. It's one with a handle that you have to push the button and then push in at the same time.

Ohhh myyy. It's sooo complicated

I have had two or three moms in the past few years who couldn't figure out if they should ring the upstairs or downstairs doorbell, when the door was locked.
The child care area is, and always has been, downstairs.

And if I tell them they should ring the downstairs bell, they don't know which one that is (Uhmmm, it's the one below the upstairs bell )

And then sometimes they ring the wrong one and then call me in a panic "because you aren't answering the door!!!" <---this occurs after all of the above events

Is there something that I'm not understanding? Is this much more complicated than I realize?
