The door of my classroom has a handle on it.

Every time a kid or teacher tries to open it it takes them at least 2 attempts.

What is going on?

At my main school, the door to the English room is a sliding door with a handle but, the door often gets stuck on something that is somewhere in the sliding part, so can sometimes take a few tries to get it moving haha.

Door are difficult.  :sad:

In my Thursday/Friday school, I have an English room all to myself (yay!). Unfortunately, the doors lock. This is unfortunate because I'm too lazy to go down to the main office and grab the door keys every morning, so instead, I stole them from the office, and attached them to my key-ring.
   The problem is, I don't always drive to work (as this branch school is the one closest to my home, and takes only half an hour or so by bus), and therefor, don't always bring my keys with me. This means that I can't unlock my classroom.
  This used to be no problem, as my room has two entrances, and I would just lock up the one with the obvious padlock, but leave the other one sneakily unlocked, so that I could go in that way. Of course, this year, there's another NET who comes to the school on Wednesday, and he's obviously a keener, and is careful to lock all the doors when he leaves. So now I have to keep one of those high up sliding window that look out into the hallway unlocked and climb in through there every other week. >:(
    Oh well. Keeps me limber, I guess!

So, if you stole the only set of keys and the other NET is a Keener how does he get in the class without a set of keys?  Presumably as a keener he would inform someone that he has no way to open the padlock.  Just seems to be conscientious and hardly deserving of "I've retaliated by changing the computer pass-code to a random assortment of numbers, letters, and punctuation 21 characters long, and by hiding all the good board markers where he'll never find them."  Seems a bit harsh for a guy that is merely locking up when the day is done.

Oh no, I would never steal the only copy. That's serious level maliciousness! No, no: there are 2 or 3 copies of the keys, at least. But my class is on the 4th floor, and the office (where the keys are kept) is waaaaaayyyyyy down the hall on the first. Soooo much walking.  :sad:
And haven't you heard? No good deed goes unpunished.

    Honestly, if I bring my own markers to my schools, chances are he does too. And if not, well, then he'll have to deal with infuriatingly-almost-but-not-quite-good-enough markers. Or, you know, walk down the hall to the supply room (which I left directions to on a note on my -- *our* -- desk) and get some new ones. That's the price one pays for being a favourite-class-stealing interloper.  >:(  :wink:

I got my school to make me a personal copy that I could keep on me since all of the KTs have their own copies for their own offices and classrooms.

But I also made sure to ask an older coT who I knew would oblige me, just in case there was a special rule about not letting the NET have a personal key.

I too had trouble with using door handles the first time. Fortunately the kitchen door had handles that push down and swing inward. As my species is rather intelligent, I was able to use them every time thereafter. I wasn't having any problem with them until the UNIX system was back online and the door locks were activated.

No more escaping your cage and raiding the laboratory kitchens for you now, eh?  :wink:

Some of these places can be confusing. On my way to the bus stop, there's a building I usually like to pass through. It has one of those glass doors with the locking mechanism. It used to open both ways but now it only opens if you push/pull it towards the inside. I guess in some cases since these doors CAN open both ways, there's no telling which way it'll go to begin with.

It's okay. I crashed through the window and got out into the longgrass. Had a nice picnic lunch there too.

This is because of all the times I said we need locking mechanisms on the doors.
