Defying common sense?

We peered inside the front door of Bradley Court – the newly-converted office block on Knoll Road – the other day.  Just a few feet ahead is an illuminated sign showing the way to an emergency exit.P1060345b(Apologies, the photograph below is rather difficult to make out.  The foyer was dark, the day was sunny, and flash would simply have reflected off the glass door, obscuring everything.)

Anyway, the sign shows that – as you enter the building – the emergency exit is straight ahead.  But wouldn’t it make more sense to turn on your heel and just leave through the front door again??

    • I don’t know, but I imagine that it’s checked for conformation with building regs before it can be occupied. Which would include fire precautions. Whether common sense can be taken into account, I doubt!
