Don't Push the "Door Close" Button
"Door Close" buttons do not work—they're what are known as "placebo buttons," there but to placate your anxiety. But you shouldn't let yourself become the prisoner of your anxiety; grant yourself the serenity to accept the things you cannot change. After all, you don't press the walk button at intersections, do you? Like a psychopath? ("Door Close" buttons do in fact function if you're a fireman during a fire, which you are not.) [photo]
