Another instance where documentation is used to fix a design flaw:

Presumably one person too many was surprised to discover the door wasn't actually locked ...

At least in this case the documentation is unambiguous. In a local gym there are two rows of gas discharge lamps (which take several minutes to light up). There are two switches for those two rows. And to show which switch is for which side, there is a label, "window side", between the two switches! So if someone accidentally turns off one side, then you have a 50-50 chance of either turning the lights completely off or turning the lights back on.
