Windows in a bathroom are a contentious topic when it comes to builders. Do you have them in the shower but do you go with the translucent frosted glass? Do you have a window high up on the wall so that no nosy neighbors are able to peep in while mowing the lawn? And then there’s this window.
Yes, it turns out that this is actually supposed to be a window, which is pretty hard to tell. Is that just a wall on the other side? Is it a different building? We don’t know, but it turns out this bathroom window is pretty darn useless. It’s also hard to tell if this was a problem in the initial construction or design, or if it was something that happened later on.
There are a bunch of old schools that have these strange half-doors that are jammed up into the ceiling. As a child, you might think that they’re in that place so the janitors could get up to the mechanical parts of the school – the heaters, the air conditioning, even the elevators, or things like that. But, apparently, there are a lot of schools that just have these doors as walls just jammed up into the ceiling.
Sometimes the building was just made incorrectly. There are tons of school buildings out there that were kind of thrown together in order to make more room for the kids that were entering the school system. Thankfully, this little thing does nothing to make learning harder or more difficult, and they give the school a good amount of character, too.
Side Quest Required
We’re going to go ahead and guess that this wall doesn’t actually open, no matter how much we wished it did, since then we’d probably see the hinges in the picture or see what was inside. But, then again, why does it have not one but TWO locks implanted into the bricks? This is like in “Doom,” when you go around pressing the spacebar button on the walls trying to find secrets, but for this one, you’ll need a couple of keys.
We’re guessing a blue skull key and a red skull key. Maybe this was just some sort of prank that the buildings did because they felt like doing something fun. Maybe this was some kids who wanted to make something special for explorers. Or, maybe it’s a secret tunnel.
That’s Where They Keep the French Fries
This weird door was discovered at a Wendy’s, and we’re a little surprised that a building like this one would have a door in such a place. A lot of these fast food buildings, from one company to the next, all follow the same basic blueprint. They want to leave as much space as possible for people to sit and eat, lots of space for the kitchen, space for the offices, space for the restroom, etc, etc.
Maybe that little room just has a bit of space for napkins and paper ketchup cups and drink lids. Maybe it’s locked because there’s nothing behind the door except for a bare wall. Maybe that’s where they get the toys from in a kid’s meal. Who’s to say?
Watch That First Step
Having the right kinds of windows and doors in a home is important not just for the obvious reasons. If you have a bedroom that’s on a low level and partially underground, you have to have a window that people will be able to use to escape in the case of a fire or a home invasion or when the scorpions have finally had enough of our guff.
But as for why there’s a door in the center of this wall, we’re not really sure. Maybe they wanted some way to run away from the house if they had a split-second need to go for a jog. We totally understand how useful a door might be right there, but we think the people who made it could have done a lot to make the dismount a bit easier.
