Little pyramid hangs in window

Enough of the open/closed binary hegemony. Business are never purely open or closed. Often they are opening, closing, close (in the case of the neighborhood sushi spot), busy, low in stock, paranoid, unwelcoming, snooty, or hospitable. So, hang an attractive origami pyramid in the window and write open and closed on two sides if you must. That leaves the third side for something closer to reality.

       judging by your description, it would just flip around open and close and non-existent at random time of the day, if the pyramid is free floating on a string.

       What is the sound of someone using the till, with only one hand?

       I saw a greasy spoon restaurant who had altered their sign to say "Sorry, we're Open"

       Open, but out of just about everything.
