Broken: Embassy Suites exit signs

TwoexitsAdam Bromwich submits a picture taken in Irvine, California:

I recently stayed at an Embassy Suites in Irvine where my wife was taking her California Architect's Board exam. On our floor, we spotted these pretty crazy exit signs in a corner of the hallway.

Simply exchanging them would make sense, since the two exits are equidistant from this corner, but the current configuration is clearly broken.

It was a little ironic that she and hundreds of other architects at the hotel were there to test/be tested on building and safety regulations.


Haha...this is interesting...

It doesn't make sense to lay these signs out like this, hope your wife and other architects point this one out!

It was a test -- if your wife failed to mention it to the instructors, she lost out on the extra credit points.

Not broken. What it means is:

"In case of emergency, run into this corner and hide."
