to the genius on the elevator

Dear Woman Who Just Rode the Elevator With Me,

The huge sign located above each elevator bank is meant to indicate the floors to which those respective elevators go. Please do not get on the elevator with me, ask me what the sign stating Floors 13-23 means, and then proceed to complain loudly to me until I get off at Floor 22 that the elevator won't stop at the 7th floor.

When I said, before the doors closed, that Floors 13-23 means that it only stops at those floors, I wasn't kidding.

I did not design the elevators. I only work here.

Good luck.

The whole elevator experience always drives me nuts. I say...stare straight forward and pretend to be deaf.

Ha ha ha!

I can't even begin to comprehend that. Our tallest building is the court house. Three floors. One ancient elevator that takes longer than taking the stairs.

I thought I was special enough to make the elevator stop at the floor I wanted it to!
