stuck in an elevator

March 4, 2009

I had great plans to get some fresh air before dinner tonight (I’m out of town at a conference).  I was just heading downstairs to join a group for a walk so I could get air, exercise and socializing but two parts of my plan were foiled by an elevator that got stuck mere inches below the third floor.

My compadres were from Toronto and Montreal and the one subject we had in common was hockey.  I have no idea how long we were actually stuck for but it was in the order of 20-30 minutes.  It’s weird because my first reaction in a “situation” is usually to look at the clock.  Maybe it’s because nobody was hurt.

Anyways, it was one of those odd events so I thought I should share.

Off to dinner I go!



  1. Ack. I’d hate to be stuck in an elevator- I’m glad it was an interesting time at least!

  2. Yeah, it was weird, totally unexpected and quite warm too! The one fellow had been stuck in a few elevators. Maybe he was the bad luck “charm”?
