Double doors and the powers of observation

What do you do in the following situation: you get a new job, and transfer to a place with firedoors ever 5 meters. We’re talking about double, interlocking firedoors, here; if you don’t push/pull the correct wing, you will push/pull both wings, which is annoying (and then you have to make sure they close properly).

It’d be great if they built these doors with consistency in mind: let’s say, you always use the left wing, but they did not. It’s absolutely haphazard which door needs to be pushed/pulled, and which wing locks with the other. So you can either memorize, or, as I came to a realization with a flash of genius- you can just use the dirtier doorwing…

Finally my skills as a researcher were of practical use.
