The Elevator...

...best kept secret in study spots.

Ok...not really.

Today, I was on my way into work (normal). I got on the elevator with a lady (normal). She got off on the second floor...I stayed on the elevator to go to the third floor where I work...the doors were closing. A lady ran up and tried to pry the doors open (freak!). As soon as I noticed her I pressed this button <> to no avail...(see, I tried to be nice to the crazy woman). She kept yanking on the doors which refused to budge and then the elevator I was in started convulsing. I was alone in the shaking elevator with it's doors open about 4 inches. Thanks a heap crazy for breaking my eleveator! So other people came up to peak at the "poor girl trapped in the elevator" and the crazy denied anything and said I must have broken it and she just got there and saw it broken...then she took another elevator. A little old man tried to pry the doors open and couldn't but said he'd sit with me until it opened...sweet eh?...but I told him I was fine. I rang the little bell thingy and pushed the "push for help" button and everything. 25 minutes, and a lot of studying later, I was free. Now if I could find the jerk who jammed it I'd pay her back.

There's gotta be surveillance cameras in that place...Seriously. That woman should have to pay your missed wages!

Oh my gosh that is crazy! I can't believe the woman who blamed it on you when she was impatient and broke it. That is a unique experience for sure. I bet she felt stupid.

Well, I can't ever say that's happened to me... Sorry about the crazy lady but I'm glad you made the most of a bad situation! And definitely keep your eyes open for her! BWAHAHAHA!!!

That lady is a freak for sure!!! I can't believe you had to sit in the thing waiting all because someone is impatient!

That exact same thing happened to me in the cottonwood building!!! I was just stoked about not having to see patients for that half an hour, I wish it would have been stuck for longer

Just thinking about that makes me feel like I can't breathe.

I have to admit...that made me laugh. Mostly because I could picture it happening, and seriously, it would have been better if you piped up and called the crazy out.
