Doesn't that [the subject of this puzzle] rather defeat the purpose?

That = an object? An animal? A solid? A liquid? A gas? A tangible object? An intangible one? A common object? Used in every day life? Bugger than an umbrella? Bigger than a car? Bigger than a polo ball?

Defeat the purpose = completely vanify any effort? Completely vanify what "we" want to do? What another object is meant to do? Vanify the purpose of something? (An advertisement?...) If so, is the purpose of that something mainly in terms of security? Entertainment? Charity (e.g. a donation)? Displaying images/videos? Connecting to the internet? Cooking? Writing? Going somewhere? Paying tickets? Paying? Going from A to B? Avoiding something tedious (e.g. a line)? Better hearing? Better seeing? Others?

Did the conversation happen in a relevant place? The place where the purpose could be defeat? Parking lot? Supermarket? Restaurant? Street? A building? Bank? Shop? House? Garden? Hotel? Stadium?

Technology relevant? Internet? Laptop? Phone? Devices? Airplanes?

That = an object? An animal? A solid? A liquid? A gas? A tangible object? An intangible one? 'that' is an action, which involves an object. A common object? Not common, but you would probably recognize it. Used in every day life? No. Bugger than an umbrella? Bigger than a car? Bigger than a polo ball? n.r. to both.

Defeat the purpose = completely vanify any effort? If you mean 'make the effort in vain' yes. Completely vanify what "we" want to do? Perhaps not completely, but would certainly make it difficult.What another object is meant to do? Vanify the purpose of something? (An advertisement?...) If so, is the purpose of that something mainly in terms of security? Yessish.Entertainment? Charity (e.g. a donation)? Displaying images/videos? Connecting to the internet? Cooking? Writing? Going somewhere? Paying tickets? Paying? Going from A to B? Avoiding something tedious (e.g. a line)? No to all of these. Better hearing? Better seeing? Others? Yes, others.

Did the conversation happen in a relevant place? The place where the purpose could be defeat? Yes to both. Parking lot? Supermarket? Restaurant? Street? A building? Yes, but none of those listed.Bank? Shop? House? Garden? Hotel? Stadium?

Technology relevant? Yes.Internet? Laptop? Phone? Devices? ..but not electronics.Airplanes?No, nor any other means of transportation.

Technology = something automatic? (E.g. an automatic door?) Elevators relevant?

 in terms of security = security for babies (e.g. there was a ban on doing something which was instead totally allowed by performing a certain action) ? General security? Security against something that could possivly hurt (e.g. listening too laud music...) Is the building an house? Is music relevant? Sounds in general?

Is the action contraddicting a law? A ban? Does the action allow to do something ? Do not allow to do something? Is glass involved?

Is the building involved an house? A garage? A skyscreper? A radio building? A relevantly high building? A relevant place of work? An hospital?

Technology = something automatic? (E.g. an automatic door?) Elevators relevant? No - not especially recent technology.

in terms of security = security for babies (e.g. there was a ban on doing something which was instead totally allowed by performing a certain action) ? General security? Security against something that could possivly hurt All pf this is or could be close to OTRT, but not quite. (e.g. listening too laud music...) Is the building an house? No.Is music relevant? Sounds in general? No to both.

Is the action contraddicting a law? A ban?Don't think it is an actual law; 'ban' is closer. Even closer would be 'standard procedure.' Does the action allow to do something ? Do not allow to do something? One is expected to take special pains not to do something. Is glass involved?Not in any significant way.

Is the building involved an house? A garage? A skyscreper? A radio building? A relevantly high building? A relevant place of work? An hospital? This; everything else no.

hygiene involved? Washing hands? Pay something? Wheelchairs involved? Radiography relevant? Radiations? Fire alarms? Emergency exits? Smoking? Operations? Parking? Ambulances? Electricity?
Is the standard procedure necessary in case of emergency and contradicts the purpose of something else? E.g. standard procedure = take the pager inside a certain room in case of emergency; ban = not taking any electronically device inside a room because of radiations.
Or standard procedure visit the patient in any case; purpose of having a red code = avoid to lose time in standard procedures

Does the standard procedure involve patients? Doctors? patients entering the hospital? Patients being discharged?

hygiene involved? Yes.Washing hands?but not this. Pay something? Wheelchairs involved? Radiography relevant? Radiations? Fire alarms? Emergency exits? Smoking? Operations? Parking? Ambulances? Electricity? all of this, n.r.
Is the standard procedure necessary in case of emergency It would be necessary in some cases, not necessarily emergency cases.and contradicts the purpose of something else? E.g. standard procedure = take the pager inside a certain room in case of emergency; ban = not taking any electronically device inside a room because of radiations. no.
Or standard procedure visit the patient in any case; purpose of having a red code = avoid to lose time in standard procedures Puzzle involves visitors, but not 'red codes.'

Does the standard procedure involve patients? Doctors? patients entering the hospital? Patients being discharged?

**************************SPOILER*************************
When my son and daughter-in-law were in Italy this past summer, she got a heat stroke and had to go to the hospital, where she was put in an induced coma. When her husband visited her, he had to wear a 'sterile suit,' with the mask, paper booties, etc.
The situation was serious enough that her son by a previous marriage was sent for. When he arrived, the staff asked Charles (my son) to take off his sterile suit so her son could wear it. As they are about the same height, (but not the same weight) this was possible, but her son, who is a liscenced nurse, thought it a bit odd, & so did Charles.
She received excellent care, and is much better now, but still sensitive to heat. As they live in Ft Worth, this could be a problem - or was until this weekend, when the temperature dropped to 41F.

Not-so-sterile suit. Interesting story. Also posting just to mention that I live in Ft. Worth as well. Small world, and all that. Glad she is doing better.
