Today I was soooo tired of sitting and laying about. Figured I would just take a ten minute walk up in the third floor parking lot. It is wide open up there in the middle of the day. I walked over to the north building 2 elevator. Calmly got into the elevator and pushed the 3 button. The elevator reached the third floor and stopped. The doors opened only about 2 inches and sort of bounced. It sounded as if something was blocking the doors. I pushed the open and close buttons. No response. Floor one button is pushed and the elevator descends normally.
Now to say I am hard headed is not news to most who visit this blog. Had to be a fluke so I just pushed the third floor button again. The result was no better. As a matter of fact it would not respond to any of the buttons to go down. I finally pushed the emergency call button. A recording came on saying all operators were busy. How many elevators are not functioning at the same time? Then the elevator music came across the speaker. I continued to press the buttons to go to a different floor.
Finally the doors closed and the elevator descended to the second floor. Doors opened completely and I removed myself quickly. I am still in the walking boot so stairs are not something I wished to try. I walked to the other side of the building to the south elevator. With a deep breath I stepped in and pressed the first floor button. It worked just as expected. I took not an extra second extracting myself from this elevator. Once back in the apartment, I told Hobby of the ups and downs I experienced on the walk. He called the apartment office and we left it to them to sort out. Guess I will do my walking on the first floor in the future.
Have a great weekend and thanks for stopping in for a chat.
