My office is on the first floor of a 4 story building.
We have single door in the corner.
The door has a sign "Private Office - Employees Only".

To get to that door a person has to walk past 50 linear feet of glass walls which are puncuated with glass double doors which are usually open. Like a fishbowl, you can see into these offices - clearly visible to all are 1/2 dozen people at help desks waiting for walk-ins to aid with questions.

Every day we have people who will walk pass those double doors, propped open - past the smiling helpful row of people anxiously waiting to help the next person - to our door, only to ignore the sign to walk into my office and ask me where [insert location] may be found.

It baffles me.

Soon we'll move to the 3rd floor and we'll be located in the back behind a receptionist.
She'll get a card from me every year.
I can hardly wait to have a barrier from the stupid.
