Carpet saves the day
I'm pretty sure that each floor of this building has a different color and/or style of carpet. I suppose it would be easy enough to check, but I am lazy. Anyway, I am convinced that they do this on purpose. We're so conditioned to just get off when the door opens, even if it's not our floor. "The door opened. This must be the floor I want," we think. But with each floor having a different carpet color, you're warned that it isn't your floor. The prints on the wall across from the elevators do this to a lesser extent, but the real savior is the carpet. I can't tell you how many times I would have arrived at the wrong office if it weren't for the carpet.
