Googly Gooeys Why Elevators Are Like People 1) They Love Taking Their Sweet Time Elevators: "When i this elevator going to arrive? Tomorrow?" People: "Sigh! How much time do you need to prepare for our date?" "Five more minutes" 2) They complain about heavy workloads Elevators: "It said 'overload'. How dare the elevator reject me like that?" People: "oh! I have so much to do! I can't wait to get more sleep!" 3) They get sick too! Elevators: "Elevator is under repair? This was the form of exercise I was afraid of?" People: "This flu is so clingy. It won't leave me!" 4) They close their doors when they feel like it! Elevator: Ugh! I missed the elevator again? Argh! People: "Are you mad at me? Why won't you talk to me?"

This post is dedicated to @_PurpleRose_ on Twitter–a fellow Rusher & Netizen 😉 I promised her months ago that if I ever come up with an elevator post, I’d dedicate it to her 🙂

Elevators have now become an integral part of my life. *How dramatic and formal!*  Through the years I’ve had (more than) my fair share of elevator mishaps like:

(a) asking a receptionist if there is a flight of stairs leading to the 29th floor not knowing that the office I was looking for was in the other wing and that 29th floor on that building is umm…a helipad 😛

(b) complaining that the elevator was taking too long to get to the floor I wanted to when I actually forgot to press any button

(c) leaning on the wall of the elevator & accidentally pressing all the floors *Yikes!*

(d) entering an elevator dedicated to another set of floors (e.g. 11-20) when I was supposed to have entered another one for my floor

(e) turning into a total noob (as if I haven’t in situtations a to d) while staring at this marvelous technology that optimizes the number of trips versus destination and all you have to do is key in the floor of your choice!

I just realized, that could have been another cartoon entry altogether!  Oh well.

As land gets more & more scarce & building are multiplying exponentially, elevators will be inevitable means of transportation.   Good luck to all of us on our future elevator adventures & mishaps! 🙂
