Elevator stuck between floors during power outage

— Nunitak has escaped from high-rise elevator in similar circumstances as teen. But it is dangerous: Elevator could resume movement when you are only partly out. Longest Nunitak has been trapped in an elevator is 2.5 hours, on a weekend, but at an occupied and carefully monitored complex. The time consumed was used for finding and contacting an elevator service person on a Saturday, plus his travel to the city where this occurred.

Facts and Musings

Interesting Elevator FACTS

— Celebrate your freedom when exiting from mechanical containers, long or short journey. Do not become overly paranoid. With elevators the journey is short, you need not worry about other drivers (just the passengers), and there is a dedicated track, solely for your container. This eliminates crashing into other elevator cabs, under the current system.

The most IMPRESSIVE offices are those which you enter directly from the elevator — where the doors open and you are THERE, the receptionist’s desk directly in front of you. She must be steeling herself each time the door opens — never knowing what is coming out. Too late to straighten your hair and tie, no blessings of the corridor for dilly dallying or for further prep and rehearsal.

Even in a smaller building the corridor-less office outranks those offices in posh and greater buildings where one has a corridor. Therefore it is a plus if the reception area is a bit welcoming and creates the proper mood for the business at hand. Feng shui or balance is much more necessary in such places. A crocodile moat only works for some few businesses.

Whatever, you are already off-guard, like Diane Sawyer, who was told by Admiral Rickover “Actually I am not that smart, it is just that you are stupid” or something like that. I have heard that he liked to place his visitors in a chair with short legs too…

Makes you wonder what the real aliens will be like when they have offices here. The Japanese system is probably best, where there are protocols to follow.
