Sign Gravity

If I see a wet paint sign, I find myself strangely drawn to the wet surface. I don't actually touch it but the sign mesmerizes me and I get really close. It's like the sign has some gravitational pull. Today I encountered 3 wet paint walls at work and I had to do some mental voodoo on myself to make sure I didn't ruin my clothes. Okay, I admit that sometimes I do touch wet paint surfaces with a finger. The yellow line at various T stations has a similar pull on me. There is some part of me that combines distrust and don't tell me what to do attitude to the point where I see a sign as a challenge. How many times have I wound up with paint on my finger? Once.
