WW: Western Store Emergency Exit

These Wordless Wednesday photos came from an anonymous fire inspector pal of mine (hopefully nobody recognizes him from the reflection of his legs in the mirror! 😀 ).  This is very common in retail stores – the merchandise displays creep in and encroach upon the egress route, or inhibit the operation of fire doors (like this store in Maine).

The egress side of the emergency exit:

The exterior side of the outer vestibule doors:

    Two things:
    1 – At least they have the gates open.
    2 – You can’t blame a man for trying to make a living shining boots.

    The sign speaks the truth.
    If you tried to exit through these doors you would immediately find yourself in an emergency.
    “Help! I’m trapped in a vestibule! But the shine he is putting on those boots is impressive!”

    By the way, your anonymous fire inspector is not so anonymous in the reflection outside. 🙂

    Total ignorance is no excuse. Just out of curiosity, what is the poster below the exit sign? Looks like a size 2 mooning kid in size 12 boots and hat.

    Look at all those keys! Looks like many of the maintenance guys that I help with their keying issues.
