Sitting At Work  
The door of the bulding I'm currently working in has a distinct habit of opening on it's own. 

I'm supposed to be listening for the mechanical opening of the doors on either side of the booth. The opening sound indicates the presense of people, which indicates that I may soon find myself in the position of having to sign someone in or retrieve a visitor's ID. This being summer and nearly three in the morning, it isn't a position I find myself in often, so the sound brings a certain degree of excitement in that I might, for once, actually have something to do. 

Looking behind me and noting that there is no one coming through the door, despite hearing and seeing the door open, does lend itself to certain foreboding thoughts, especially when you're working alone in the middle of the night. I wouldn't call it frightening. Generally speaking, recent events aside, I'm not the sort of person who is easily scared by eeriness. I tend to just find it interesting. 

The reason for it is obviously, rationally, the fact that the motion sensor is somewhat overractive. But wouldn't it be interesting if it was something else? 

Perhaps I should look for a more interesting job.
