I seem to be in a grumpy mood this week. I’m known to be a complainer, but events this week have just gotten my panties in a bunch. I’m going to be blunt here:
1. If you’re not carrying a bunch of cargo, or if you’re not handicapped, you have absolutely NO REASON to ride up or down 1 level in the elevator.
2. As with #1, WALK up or down the escalator if you’re able. The escalator is there to help disabled people or those with large packages.
People, STOP BEING SO LAZY!
It has become my personal mission to make people feel bad when they get on the elevator and ride up or down one floor. They’re wasting my time (by stopping on that floor to pick them up, and then dropping them off) and the company’s money (the power to run the elevator). I walk up 2 and down 3 when given the opportunity, as should everyone else when able.
Now before you chastise me, I use my best judgment before glaring at someone. If they truly look like they could have bad knees, or if they’re really obese and taking the stairs has become a risk, or if they look like they could cause problems with my career, then I bite my tongue. Also, if the stairs are just sketchy or much too far out of the way, I don’t complain.
How many of you are guilty of riding up or down one floor? Or blocking the escalator for people who really want to utilize those two limbs God gave us? Or are you bothered by these people as well? Leave your feedback.
