* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LVcUR2s4uEA The subject of a montage]] in the sixth season of ''Series/AmericanIdol''. It's worth noting that ALL those doors are double doors both of which are "push" doors but one of them is locked closed. That's illegal. People do it all the time but it's still illegal. If there's a fire people won't be able to/have time to/be allowed by the rest of the crowd to go to the other door; they'll get crushed up against that door by the fleeing mob and die. Another note is that the final clip shows that the lock ''broke'' inbetween her adrenaline-fueled push and the consistent abuse it had taken.

If there's a fire people won't be able to/have time to/be allowed by the rest of the crowd to go to the other door; they'll get crushed up against that door by the fleeing mob and die. Notably, some of the doors in the clip had handles which the auditionees had tried to pull, others were purely push doors. Another note is that the final clip shows that the lock ''broke'' inbetween her adrenaline-fueled push and the consistent abuse it had taken. Simon even says "other door" as she's bursting out of it, the reflex apparently having become ingrained from so many that had tried to go through the locked door.

* Donald Norman's seminal book on design, [[http://bactra.org/reviews/everyday-things/ The Psychology of Everyday Things]], devotes nearly an entire chapter to describing how the design of door handles leads people to make this mistake.

* Brought UpToEleven in one story of the Italian comic ''ComicBook/{{Cattivik}}''. The only obstacle between the protagonist and the apartment he intends to rob is a door that he fails to open, in spite of first pulling, then pushing, then trying to break it open, then ''begging and threatening it'', then trying to destroy it with napalm, the bombs of a B-52, an ''alien spaceship'' (in a ShoutOut to ''Film/IndependenceDay'') and even a ''[[NukeEm nuke]]''. As Cattivik surrenders in desperation, one of the people from the apartment exits and calmly opens the ''sliding door''. Cattivik takes it about as well as you'd expect.
