The other thing that burns me up about that reprimand is that it’s not like anyone else even goes down that corridor. To even get to the hole in the floor, I have to go through a double set of doors like an airlock. They’re both as thick as bulkheads and have the smallest, thickest pane of glass inset in them as an eye slot. It’s more like a transparent brick. The things take forever to open and close, and you can only have one open at a time. I’m sure that at the time they were constructed this arrangement made a lot of sense for whatever reason, but it seems so pointless now.
The whole thing seems pretty much hard wired. Like, not even wired, just built that way. But since it doesn’t hurt to ask, I suggested to Dr. Cranor that maybe someone could figure out a way to rig the doors to stay open or at least remove the link that keeps them from opening at the same time. Her eyes got all wide and she just said, “Why on earth would you ever want to do that?”, like she couldn’t imagine a reason. Well, she’s not the one who has to go through those giant hulking doors twice a day.
