Not everyone knows this, but the elevator lobby in my building has sort of a haunted history. As a person walks up to the elevators, they see someone get on the elevator and the doors close. The person pushes the button to call another elevator and the doors open on the elevator that just closed and nobody is in there.
This hasn't happened to me in a long time, but it happened to me at lunch today. When the doors opened and nobody was in the elevator that I just saw someone walk into, I hesitated and then walked in. As the doors closed I pushed the button for my floor and heard a loud woman's voice in the elevator behind me!
I freaked out and turned around to see a woman talking on her cell phone as she walked into the elevator from the freight door side. (One of our elevators has doors in the front and the back.) I looked at her and shouted, "You scared me!" She looked at me like I was nuts and said, "Sorry." and continued her telephone conversation.
Sorry? You scared the piss out of me and all you can say is "sorry?" How about putting that cell phone down and helping me clean up all this elevator pee?
