There's a door where I work which seems to swap from 'push' to 'pull'.

I've used it at least twice a day for over three years and I still get it wrong sometimes. The thing is, you can tell that everyone else has the same issue....nobody ever just confidently strolls through it, there's always at least a pause.

I've encountered such doors. The one I most remember was at a rock club I used to go to at least twice a week.

I remember a strange thing happening to me at school. I came out of a lesson one day absolutely convinced there was another lesson straight after it. I remember walking down the stairs feeling dazed and confused as my friends talked of heading out to the yard and then felt positively panicky on seeing streams of students leaving the building and walking across the field. Why wasn't anybody in the school staying for the next lesson? It was, in fact, lunch time. After a few horrible minutes I just accepted it with relief and assumed I'd probably mixed up my days or something, but I've never experienced anything like it again.
