Sometimes people put a compelling title on a story to draw people in. One that makes people want more or wonder what happened. Something like “Trapped in an Elevator!!!”. But this is not a bait and switch story headline. It’s not sensationalized just to make you read it. No, in fact it’s simply the story of how my day began.
The PLUS office (see my August 11th blog post for pictures of the PLUS office PLUS Office Photos) is on the sixth floor of the building. And just like any other day I was drinking a cup of coffee while heading up the elevator to start my day. Then suddenly the elevator slammed to a stop and I spilled coffee on my shirt. Luckily (or maybe not so lucky) the drive into the office was long enough so that my coffee was lukewarm and that I wore a dark shirt. So there I sat in the hot elevator for the next 30 minutes, stuck between the 2nd and 3rd floor. Luckily I was able to call someone so I knew help was on the way. Eventually the Otis elevator repair team pried open the doors and I crawled my way to safety.
Why am I telling you this even though it has noting to do with PLUS or Professional Liability? Well actually because it has nothing to do with PLUS or Professional Liability and because after all its Friday. I figured I would close the week out with a completely irrelevant, yet true story. Plus it certainly will be one of the most memorable moments of my first 100 days at PLUS. So enjoy your weekend and don’t get trapped in an elevator.
