October Theme Of The Month: Halloween!

Stop And Stair, Part 4

| New York, USA | Extra Stupid

(A customer comes up to me. They ask for directions, which I begin to provide.)

Me: “Take the elevators at the south end. There should be signs along the way. You’ll pass [store name] and [store name].”

Customer: “Take what?”

Me: “Elevator…they’re also known as lifts.”

Customer: “Huh?”

Me: “Um, how do you normally get to higher floors?”

Customer: “I walk up the stairs or stand on moving stairs.”

Me: “Do you ever go inside a box and press numbers?”

Customer: “What is that?” *looks bewildered*

Me: “Maybe I should take you to the elevators.”

Customer: “Okay?”

(I take her to the elevators. They are glass.)

Customer: “So, I get inside and press the floor number?”

Me: “Yes.”

(At this moment, another elevator goes down at a normal speed with people inside.)

Customer: *frightened* “No! This is a drop tower! I want the stairs.”

Me: “Um, it’s not fast. It’s safe.”

Customer: “No! Stairs please!”
