I must be a little bit like the girl who cried Wolf. Because I don’t think too many people believe me. Oh that’s just silly neurotic J-Dub. I know I am prone to being a queen, drama. But this is da truth y’all.
Today, October 26, 2017 in the year of our Lord, one J-Dub McGillicutty was trapped in an elevator!! I’d tell you the whole story but I don’t think I could get to the point without rambling on blah blah blah blah. And yes I may have contributed to my own entrapment. LOL. My fantastically smart and dapper coworker gave me the “what I should have done” lesson after 3 pm. Where was he at 7 am ?!??!?
So, … is the most over used word on the planet.
So, … I should’ve just pushed the button to go to the first floor when the open door button failed to open the door as I was trapped on floor 4. Yep, the OPEN door button did not open y’all! Instead I pushed the help button. crackle, crackle … you have reached the office of … we are closed now … call xxx-xxx-xxxx for assistance. Sacrebleu@
Well, it was only the b’crack of dawn as I had just finished at the gym! I do have my cell phone with no reception. I panic and I keep punching the help button while in a slightly raised voice calling out help me! help me! Daina if you see this, lol! I am picturing Jeff Goldblum in the Fly.
Then I hear the crew who were working on the elevator tell me, it’s ok, we are here ma’am, you’ll be going to 1 and then you need to go to the front desk. Well what the hell took you so long to say that?!?!? Was it my incessant pushing of the help button or the sheer panic in my voice? Whew! saved. Right? Uh no, the elevator starts rising! WTH. Let me the fuck out!!! Lol! Yep I am laughing now but where was this J-Dub at 7 am? No good deed goes unpunished; so much for going to the gym.
More FUN ensues and it’s too hard to transcribe but suffice it to say I will be working at a different office tomorrow. Turns out my card is just fine! Office management took me around testing it to be sure. We tested the parking entrance, the external door(s) and the gym. Since the card worked on all those restricted areas, she knew this had to do with a known systems glitch. I am on some list and when my elevator access is restored, she’ll let me know. Oy vey!
My feature photo is me in the bird’s nest. I’ve seen better days.
As always, more to come.
