Seriously??? You mean the elevator is broke!?!

Monday, July 01, 2013

Oh this is too funny! Some of you may remember my "Seriously, you are acting like a jerk" blog with the elevator dude. Well, he still has been harassing me and still saying stuff like "Are you afraid to ride in the elevator?" I just keep politely responding in one way or another and taking the stairs.

Well this morning as I am making my way up the stairs I hear footsteps above me and as I approach the 6th floor I hear "So everyone has to take the stairs today, the elevator is broken. It won't stop." He obviously is sweated and tired from his share of the stairs and I am taking it like another walk in the park. (Okay, I'm BSing. Climbing the stairs and lugging your laptop, lunch and purse with you is no walk in the park.)

But I can't help but smile and laugh inside because taking the stairs is no issue for me and he has been harassing me about it since I started. Now, I feel like I am even more justified in staying out of that old elevator! No I am not scared, I am smart and fit! Woohoo!

On another note, they said if the elevator is still broke we could do our work from home because the stairs are just too much for everyone. (Except me, I still have to go in) Oh boy, how do you argue with that?

    Since you had such a great elevator story, I have to tell you what happened to a friend of mine. She saw a **RAT** running up the side of the elevator into the elevator shaft. Thank goodness she was not trapped with the rat inside the elevator enclosure itself! Ever since then, it's the STAIRS for her at work!

  • MARGARITTM they are penalizing you for being fit? You have to go into work because you are fit enough to take the stairs.??? Wow ! Really???

    i would think you would be rewarded somehow for saving the company money - on fewer sick days for being healthy. .... like offering you a few paid time off hours if you came in on days when the elevator was down.

    emoticon Great story! I think one of the things that prompted me to get back in shape was being embarrassed about getting winded climbing the stairs to my third floor office.

    That's hilarious!!! When I was pregnant, I worked on the 8th floor. I took the stairs all the time. Everyone used to laugh at me. But guess what -- 2 hr labor from start to finish. Yep, stairs are awesome!!!

    It's just like we said when the gang biked together, If your moving you're lapping everyone on the couch.

    Afraid, you're not afraid. Next time, "I'm not afraid to take an elevator, I'm not afraid of anything. Fitness takes away fear." emoticon
