One of the scariest things about the office building where I work (for a few more days) is the elevators.
I think everyone has fears about elevators in office buildings if they spend enough time there. I think every elevator does some crazy things at some point. Then rumors spread and people get wary of them.
Our elevators really are scary. They stop for no reason. They move so quickly sometimes that you bounce when the elevator actually stops. They’ll stop between floors.
In obvious need of repair, the building owners are doing exactly that now. One elevator at a time is going to be out of service.
The crew was on our floor today, and someone spotted a book sitting on the work bench. “Elevator Repair for Dummies.” My co-worker even snapped a photo and showed us all.
It didn’t exactly bring comfort for me in the repairs to the elevator. If I didn’t work on the seventh floor, I’d take the stairs far more often.
