Don't Knock It


They were chuckling at me when I came back from the kitchen next to the meeting room. They were grinning and smirking at each other because they'd heard me laugh out loud and knew that I was the only person in there.

So I felt compelled to explain that I was laughing because I value highly in testers the ability to find more than one way to look at any given situation. Stated drily like that, it  doesn't sound worthy of a solo guffaw does it? But what I actually said went a bit like this ...

You know that scene in The Lord Of The Rings where they're trying to get into a mine? There's a clue phrase in Elvish above the door that Gandalf translates as "Speak, friend, and enter" but then he can't remember what the password is. Eventually he sees an alternative interpretation, "Say friend and enter", and they get in.

Well, I was in the kitchen looking at the door to the car park and there's a sticker on it which I'm sure I must've read before ...



... but this time I thought is that door calling me a knob?
