On My Mind

Every few weeks, as we're in the elevator bound for our office on the 10th floor, someone will get on the elevator on the third floor, hit the four, ride up one story and exit just as quickly as they entered.

These fleeting rides always leave me with a lot of questions.

Why would you wait for an elevator just to ride it one floor? Why does this always happen between the third and fourth floors? Who or what is on those floors that requires so much back and forth? And why are they so disinclined to walk ten stairs?

Shifting gears completely: I just glanced at my call list and realized the last call I made/received on my cell phone was on Tuesday. Is that weird or just pathetic?

Oh goodness -- I work on the 10th floor and see this sooo often!! And I give people glares. Like seriously -- one flight of stairs??

But then I take the elevator to our HR dept. on the 9th -- and am like whatev. But I DO take the stairs more often!

That happened at my job all the time. I worked on the third floor (with the parking garage it was four flights of stairs so back off while I tell the next part) and people would ALWAYS take the elevator to the FIRST floor. What? That and a different person thanking me for bringing them lunch ("hahahaha") every single time I got in an elevator with a to-go box...

I've wondered that same thing before...

That has always bothered me- with as little movement as most office jobs afford, wouldn't one flight of stairs be a desirable little sojourn into a moderate heart-rate increase?

Pathetic. I'll be sure to call this weekend :) And have you ever checked the flight of stairs between the 3rd and 4th floor? Maybe there's something quite disturbing...go check it out!
