My Persistance

For the past week or so I have been working up at Sterling. Every morning we head into the Sterling Bakery for a cup of coffee and breakfast. Its always interesting to watch different people and how the react with certain situations.

The other day I watched a little kid interacting with the automatic doors and it made me laugh. His mother and him had finished their lunch and she had gone up to pay. He jump out of his chair and was drawn towards the door. He had watched people come in and out and the doors open and close by themselves and was amazed. He was fascinated that the doors would open automatically. The funny part was that he was two short to set the sensor off to open the doors. This confused him endlessly.

He tried and tried to get the doors open and in the end resorted to trying to pry them open with his fingers. He finally managed to pry them open only to have them snap back shut pinching his fingers. I found this quite hilarious but it only got funnier when he tried two more times with the same result. After hurting himself a few times his mum was finished and walk up to him. You should have seen the look of amazement on his face when his mother picked him up, opened the doors automatically and walked out. Made me smile.
