Or this. Have you heard about this? It's old news for sure, but new to me and timeless, really. The story of Nicholas White, a man who went outside for a cigarette break while working in New York's McGraw-Hill building (it was 11pm on a Friday). On his way back, the elevator stopped, and he was trapped for 41 hours. The following is a 3 minute video of his horrifying entrapment...
Dollars to donuts you wondered if/when and how he went to the bathroom. Was it just a quick pee in the corner? A poop bundled up in his jacket? No? Just me? Okay then. Turns out he pried open the doors and pissed down the elevator shaft, hoping to catch some attention. I just don't know. I think this video is so fascinating because we've all wondered what we'd do in such a situation, eyed the woman who got on at the 4th floor wondering if maybe she keeps Certs in her purse for later. No? Just me again? Hm. Well, just so you know I usually have crayons in my purse so we can play MASH (dibs on the Lambourghini!) should we go crazy sometime around hour 34.
Happy Hump Day, people. You're probably not stuck in an elevator, but if you are, you're getting really good internet connection, so hey! There's that!
Happy splits & jaunty hats,
