GR Zechman of Allegion sent me this Wordless Wednesday photo, after trying to exit through this door and stopping to investigate why the door wouldn’t open. As I told GR, this photo literally brought tears to my eyes, in part because I think about the “what-ifs” and in part because I feel like I can bang my head against the wall for the rest of my career and we’ll still see egregious situations like this.
Today I am thankful that we have enforceable codes, code officials to enforce them, and a code development process to allow for constant improvement. Wishing all of you a Happy Thanksgiving (and yes, we will be having turkey and all the fixins in Mexico – a potluck dinner for 47!).
