Miscellaneous from the Shopping Centre

Soo...I'm on work experience atm. And my lunch hour is like, so much longer than it needs to be. And many small thoughts come to my mind.

So here they are.

1. What on earth is the point in revolving doors?
Sure, they're automatic, but so are the slidey ones, and they force the unfortunate user to walk in a loooooong big circle. Walk too fast, and they'll shudder to a halt and you're left panicking about losing air till they start again. Walk too slow and you crash into the one behind. And such a waste of electricity when they're less useful than push-open doors.
Revolving doors are, therefore, completely pointless.

2. This one is more of an amusing anecdote. You know how in ordinary toilets, there are always mirrors above the sinks? So you come out of the loo, scrub your hands and, whilst doing that, check your hair and face in the mirror.
Well in the Touchwood loos, there are no mirrors, and it always gives me a shock to look up and realise there's a stranger staring back. If you watch other people its quite amusing, too.

3. I like how all the music from the different shop doors floats together and creates mall-music, which is all the same.

Well, that's all for now.
Just today's lunchtime musings.
