prune of the week 10.2.08

i would like to make a new rule that if you only have to go up or down one floor you are not able to use the elevator in an office or an apartment building.

EVER.

(unless you are physically unable to go up and downstairs of course)

johnny athletic runner dude does not need to stop my elevator ride down from the 9th floor EVERYDAY on the 2nd floor so that he can ride the elevator down one floor.

annoying.

today he must have got tired of waiting on the second floor because when the elevator stopped on the second floor no one was there. i then heard the stairwell door close, damn him!

we end up exiting my apartment building entrance together, i give him the wonky stink eye.

[raises fist in air!!!]

  1. I was telling a co worker that yesterday. There is nothing more irritating than taking those 12 flights down with no stops them bam stops at the 2nd floor.

    It really is lazy and explains why most of the people that get on at the second floor are metabolically challenged.

  6. yea, one flight you can walk. i work in a building that is 2 floors. youd be suprised all the empty handed, able-bodied people who wait for an elevator. It's ridiculous!

  7. HATE THAT. Plus I get pissy when they press the floor directly above or below mine after I've pressed it. I feel like they should just get off on my floor and walk.

    I'm high maintenance ;)

  8. ugh - my work building is bunk.

    you HAVE to take the elevator up. all the staircase doors are locked, so you can only exit them to go down.. once you're in the staircase, you can only go out into the lobby, not to any floor.

    i'm pretty sure everyone that presses '2' feels like complete morons. every morning, when i want to kick them for making MY elevator stop, i have to remind myself they don't have another option.

    yep. I'm pretty sure that's it.

  10. That used to be my biggest complaint living in the dorms...

  11. TOTALLY agree! I used to work on the 9th floor in a building that HAD STAIRS and we always used to have to stop on the way up so perfectly able-bodied, albeit slightly overweight, folks could take a short cut.

    I also don't think it's necessary for people in crowded cities to use umbrellas. If it's only raining lightly, deal with it. Opening umbrellas completely slows down foot traffic and makes the sidewalks more unbearably crowded than they probably are already. And if it's raining REALLY hard, we're talking torrential downpour, you'll probably wind up soaked, umbrella or not. Whew, that' MY rant!

  12. I agree with that. At my last job, there was only two floors, the elevator was ancient, and it was like... why not just take the stairs when its so much faster?

  13. Ack - my colleagues and I have a hate for the "40s" - where these lawyers will stop us on our long journey to the 50s just to go up or down one floor - they even have stairs connecting their floors. C'mon now people!!

  14. At least have the follow-through to wait for the elevator, dude!

  15. Yeah, that's just asinine. I can't stand when people do that!!!!!

  16. Oh, that's really obnoxious. Though I will say that I didn't know where the stairs were at one of my jobs that was on the second floor of a building. Since they weren't clearly marked, I felt like a jerk every time I rode the elevator.

  17. The press-and-leave is even MORE annoying; let's make THAT rule first.
