Door smash!

A bit of background information to start us off – our offices are split over three floors of a four floor building.  Each floor has glass, access tag controlled doors guarding them, like so:

An office door, perfectly happy with life.

And this brings us to the door guarding the Development Department.  It’s had a bit of an unhealthy history of not opening properly and flexing just a little whenever it was being opened, although none of us really were concerned about it – we just used our tags to open the things and move through.

Today however, the door decided that it was sick of the perceived abuse that it had suffered, and let us know in spectacular fashion:

An office door, decidedly unhappy with life.

No humans were hurt in the act of the door performing seppuku, but that does leave us with the problem of getting the thing replaced over a weekend…

    And a bit of an update on this one – when I left the office at around 18:00, one of the office park’s security guards had been posted outside the remnants of the door, in Gandalf’s “YOU SHALL NOT PASS!” style.

    Will be heading back to the office shortly to perform some work on one of our servers (that can’t be done at any other time), so will see if he’s still there…
