The proper reply from UPS would be - You epic fucking retard. Lift the lever and the door will open.

[–] Alopix 2 points 19 points (+21|-2) ago 

You would only think they hadn't tried that seeing the pic from this side. On their side, they don't know what the obstruction is, so the only reason they wouldn't have immediately turned it the other way is if... the handle doesn't turn that way at all.

[–] birds_sing 4 points -2 points (+2|-4) ago 

I don't understand.

The box on the outside of the door is preventing them from pushing the doorknob down. But you think that there is an obstruction on the inside of the door (that while it wouldn't prevent them pushing the doorknob down) there is an obstruction the prevents them from lifting the doorknob up? So there might be something unmovable hanging down from the ceiling, that is blocking their front door?

Or maybe they're just stupid. That's a possibility.

Where I live there are virtually no door levers which go up. They only go down to open the door.

[–] Lemongarb 2 points 1 points (+3|-2) ago 

Door handles are designed to be used with left-hinge or right-hinge. Therefore, they turn in both directions.

[–] Caesarkid1 2 points 9 points (+11|-2) ago 

OMG you misogynistic pig! The door handle is a phallic shape and pushing it down means letting "the man" down while pulling it up is like "giving him a raise"! How dare you force me to please man! Oh god I feel so molested!

[–] HillbillyGoat 0 points 1 points (+1|-0) ago 

OMG, I am so TRIGGERED right now!

[–] antiliberalsociety 0 points 6 points (+6|-0) ago 

Forgetting the fact that the sides are independent from eachother

[–] Prudencia_Prim [S] 1 points 11 points (+12|-1) ago 

Assuming all door handles work like that. They don't.

[–] TheBuddha 1 points 5 points (+6|-1) ago 

And that not all of those rotate in both directions.

Later she locked her keys in the car and had to call the police to break out the windows so her friends could get out.

That's a shit-tier site.

[–] Minaw 1 points 6 points (+7|-1) ago 

I'm calling bullshit. The top of the box is fine and no sign of the knob being pushed against the box. Just fishing for likes with a lie.

[–] prairie 0 points 1 points (+1|-0) ago 

Obviously they repositioned the box after maintenance opened it. Maybe they flipped the box over. (yeah, right)

[–] NoBS 1 points 0 points (+1|-1) ago 

Thank you. You and I would be jury rigging a strap/lever and damage the door handle getting it open.

Fake kiddy meme'rs have lost common sense for false security. A classic sign of indoctrinated dependence.

[–] Merlynn 0 points 4 points (+4|-0) ago 

You know,if you took a picture of the outside of the door,you'd BE OUTSIDE!

[–] MkeAmericaGreatAgain 0 points 2 points (+2|-0) ago 

This was in the news. Not fake. Might be fake news but was news nontheless

[–] Hektik 3 points 5 points (+8|-3) ago 

Cool Story Bro

Door kicks in, those handles turn independently up or down to open. Funny joke though.

[–] Germ22 1 points 10 points (+11|-1) ago 

Not all handles go up and down.

[–] DiscontentedMajority 1 points 3 points (+4|-1) ago 

With all the discussion of this point I thought I'd get some data.

Just tried this on like 10 door handles at work. They all opened the door tilting down or up. More importantly, I found that none of them actually rotate the handle on the other side regardless of how you turn it.

[–] Caesarkid1 1 points 3 points (+4|-1) ago 

Seems like that could lead to a fire hazard wherein the occupants could be barricaded in their room with a simple length of wood while the building is burned down starting in the hallway.

[–] NoBS 2 points -1 points (+1|-2) ago 

No exterior handle is levered.

Interior? Of course, they will NEVER have a tumbler lock.

Unless it's exotic and then the fancy door wood give it away, but in an low quality apartment? Bullshit.

[–] Hektik 2 points -2 points (+0|-2) ago 

That door specifically has built in features to turn independently. I'm surprised people upgoated you. I've worked with many buildings with that same door and none of them with that same handle and door work like you think.

[–] MadWorld 1 points 3 points (+4|-1) ago 

This could have become a fatal trap in case of fire.

[–] NotoriousIUD 1 points 2 points (+3|-1) ago 

I was going to say the same. There HAS to be some fire code thing regarding this.

[–] Phuc_Dat_Bich 2 points 2 points (+4|-2) ago 

There is - that's why it is bullshit. The handle on the inside turns the lock without moving the external handle.

[–] Wahaha 0 points 1 points (+1|-0) ago 

That's why outside facing doors usually don't have a door handle at all. I mean,... this kind of shitty design just begs for a trolling every morning.

[–] NoBS 0 points 1 points (+1|-0) ago 

Or it was staged with an interior door. You ever seen an outside door with levers? Yeah, me neither.

[–] NoBS 0 points 0 points (+0|-0) ago  (edited ago)

Or it was a failed murder attempt. The arsonist forgot to bring matches and the new meme needs more useful idiots..

Yeah, that's the ticket. We can make it even more viral with mob rule.

May the Lord of Fly's enjoy our ignorance.. I sure do.

[–] FloridaGuy 3 points 3 points (+6|-3) ago 

How'd you get that picture?

[–] MadLordBeef 0 points 8 points (+8|-0) ago 

once you are free, you place the box back

[–] prairie 0 points 5 points (+5|-0) ago 

Oh great, now they just locked themselves out!

[–] GetWithThePogrom 0 points 0 points (+0|-0) ago 

I don't know, that supposition seems tenuous at best...

[–] Prudencia_Prim [S] 0 points 2 points (+2|-0) ago 

I certainly didn't expect a controversy about door knobs when I posted this.

I didn't know this was actually on the news, but here you go:

Additionally I found a video that seems to show a door lever that is designed to only go down:

It wasn't actually UPS, his twitter had a mea culpa later.
