February 19, 2006
I'm in the learning grid doing some work at the moment and the thing that is annoyine me the most is not the work. It's not even the girl sitting 2 computers across from me talking quite loud on her mobile. It's the inept students who can't use the electric entry gates.
Every time someone does something wrong they beep incessantly or a few seconds to alert the staff member on duty. Due to it being 23:10 there is no staff member here to alert, but that is fair enough, it doesn't know that.
The problem is the ineptitude (Defined as "incompetence" or "unskillfulness resulting from a lack of training", i'm not sure which one fits best) of the students going in or out.
Sometimes it is 2 people going in or out on one card swipe, either 'cos their lazy or the girl/boyfiend is not a student so doesn't have a card. Sometime it is something else, but they keep scanning their card too quickly and it just complains. If they waited a couple of seconds, it would be fine, but they don't, they just keep trying and it just keeps beeping.
Rant over, back to work.
