When last did you see an aircraft with the cockpit in the tail?

As crazy and stupid as it sounds... and while most people see up front as they board.. in flight, you'ld be surprised how many people still go looking for the lav at the front and a door is a door is a door to them.. thankfully they usually don't try the cabin door thanks to the window.. but they do try to use our cockpit door equally with the closet door... these announcements are simply to remind them not to pull on it... same reason at my airline they put huge placards that say "Authorized Personnel Only" on our door and forgo the verbal announcement about our location...
