Ghost In The Machine

Crap! You can tell its a busy day when its after 1:00 in the afternoon and this is my first post of the day. Sorry about that guys.

Every morning I get to work around 6:30. Our local crack dealer Starbucks brewer opens up at 7:00 so I ride the elevator down a couple floors for coffee after I've gotten settled. What's freaky is this: at least three mornings a week, the same elevator picks me up (out of a possible total of four). For some reason, even though the button isn't pushed, it always stops on the second floor, picks up no one, and then continues down to the first floor. Very freaky. I'm guessing its the ghost of some pissed off IT consultant.

7????? The one I worked at opened at 5:30!!! I had to be there at 5. 7 is oddly late IMO.

That reminds me of a freaky Dutch horror movie from the eighties called: "The Elevator" . But nothing to worry about.. it's not like it had its passengers for lunch or anything.

I have early Sunday morning commitments, so I am very thankful for the 24 hour Starbucks on my way.

Ya know, you look a little like Gilligan in the one. He's dead sexy.

One of our elevators here at work does that. I'm trying to get from 8 to the basement and back, and if I'm in the what I like to refer to as the "hellevator", every time that piece of crap will stop on the 1st floor, the doors will open, then close, then continue down to the lower level or up to 8. Stupid elevator. Sometimes I step in it real quick, push all the buttons and then jump out again to send it away and wait for a different elevator to come.

Yeah, I'm weird. :)
