what goes up

So, there I was with a co-worker in the elevator yesterday---

---when suddenly - lurch-drop-slam!

The damn thing dropped about a foot and jammed to a halt. Scared the crap out of me (figuratively, not literally).

It did resume and come to rest at a floor (forgot which one) and we beat a hasty retreat from the death trap.

The story goes that when our office building was built they cheaped out and bought "used" elevators to install.

From now on I'm using only the stairs . . .

. . . I just hope they didn't cheap out on concrete as well.
