Okay, I started attending classes that are on the 6th floor of an old building. The elevator is one that has an elevator man because it has the gate and the door. Personally, I try not to use elevators because I like the exercise of the stairs.
The Elevator Man is constantly giving me crap because I walk up six flights of stairs instead of use the elevator. "Are you afraid of elevators?" "I know it might be scary to be in an elevator with a strange man, but I won't bite."
I try to explain that I am doing this for my health. I like the exercise and it burns extra calories. Not good enough for him. We really are on two different sides of the fence. I tell him "He won't lose his job because of one person using the stairs."
This afternoon he really almost broke me. "Oh here comes the one who is afraid of elevators." I just said "Whatever" and kept walking. The last time down for the day I said "Have a nice weekend."
But what I wanted to say was "Why are you such a jerk? Leave me alone to climb all the stairs that I want! It is good for me."
I can't let this guy get to me but he does annoy me.
What would you do?
