^^ SCP-5763-J-1 instance located at [REDACTED] Library ^^

Item #:SCP-5763-J

Object Class: Safe

Special Containment Procedures: SCP-5763-J has spread too far and gained too much public notice to ever be properly contained. As such, procedures simply consist of keeping track of its spread.

Description: SCP-5763-J-1 and SCP-5763-J-2 are mass-produced signs of various size that say "Push" and "Pull" respectively. While exhibiting no anomalous properties themselves, whenever such objects are placed on a door, there is an increased chance that someone will attempt to open the aforementioned door the wrong way. When such an instance occurs, the person or persons attempting to open the door will continue to attempt it the wrong way until such time as someone else points out the sign to them, or opens it themselves. Tests have shown that this only works with doors specifically designed for humans that do not use knobs. Attempts at applying SCP-5763-J to bedroom doors, closet doors, cat carrier doors, and dog kennel doors have all shown no anomalous properties.

Addendum: Damn it, someone needs to figure out how to get rid of these things! I spent ten minutes trying to pull a "push" door at the 7-11 last week! -Dr. █████
