elevator padding: that's comforting
yes, i know. another elevator story.
i walked into the elevator. it looked funny inside. there was padding all along the walls. like the kind of stuff you cover a piano with when you need to put it in a moving truck.
there was 2 mechanic looking fellows on the vator. perhaps they could clarify things for me.
"what's with the padding?"
"soundproofing. this way you don't hear all the noises when the elevator is malfunctioning."
now if i were someone with an elevator phobia, i may have punched him in the stomach. but i don't fear disasters.
i always think about them though. car crashes, getting shot, elevators falling, etc. some may say, "too many video games." it's just have an over active imagination. disasters just happen to be one of my imagination destinations.
so knowing all that, his comment didn't really phase me.
i replied, "yeah, and if the elevator falls, maybe this padding will act like an air bag. cushion the fall a bit."
and then the elevator crashed.
well not really, but it would have been good timing for it.
