“Just walked past a sign that read, ‘This fire door is alarmed‘“ (joke)

"The fire door is alarmed” is a typical building sign, but it’s sometimes joked that the door is “alarmed” because it has a human personality. “So I passed a door with the sign: ‘Door is Alarmed.’ I told it to relax, everything is going to be okay” was posted on Twitter on September 5, 2010. “Just read a sign that said ‘this door is alarmed’ so I took a few minutes to help calm it down” was posted on Twitter on June 2, 2011.

A series of messages posted on a door was printed on Twitter on July 18, 2013:

“This door is alarmed.”
“The window is startled.”
“And the floor is slightly taken aback.”


“Just walked past a sign that read, ‘This fire door is alarmed’. So I give it a little rub and told it everything is going to be ok” was posted on Twitter on August 26, 2015.

I carry around prints of Edvard Munch’s ‘The Scream’ so I can slap them onto doors that have signs saying “This door is alarmed”.

I went to the supermarket today. I saw a sign which said ‘This door is alarmed’ so I went over and reassured it that everything was ok.

I saw a sign on a door that said “this door is alarmed.” So I told it that it had nothing to worry about.
