Lunch Time Door Game

I believe that teachers absolutely can not stand the sight of a closed door.  I’m not sure if they feel like they can go anywhere they want because they are a teacher or if it’s a genuine sickness but I have learned to enjoy the phenomenom.  My favorite is when I don’t answer the knocks, a teacher busts in the door and when I ask them if they need help they say “no, I’m all set”. These instances led me to create the Lunch Time Door Game.

Rules:

  1. Close the door to your office – preferably while eating lunch
  2. Do not answer any knocks
  3. See how many people open the door despite not being invited

Scoring:
Points are awarded based on the reason for entry and how many knocks.

  1. Legit IT emergency – No points becaue you are being a jerk
  2. Copy Machine issue – 5 points
  3. Petty IT issue – 7 points
  4. Anything that could wait till next week – 10 points
  5. No reason to open door – the golden goose of the Lunch Time Door Game – 25 points

Knock bonus points::
Add one point for each knock before entering

 

My best day was 3 entries:

  • 1 Copy Machine issue (5 points)
  • 1 Petty IT Issue ( 7 points)
  • A No Reason! ( 25 points)

The copy machine and petty IT issue were 0 knocks but the No Reason was 4 knocks!

High Score: 41 points.
