You know how some people are very lucky, well, I am one of the people who is sort of unlucky.
I don’t really have bad luck in life in general, I just have bad luck with elevators.
I can’t tell you the amount of times I have been caught in an elevator. Sometimes I will be by myself and other times I will be with other people. I have learned after the first two times that it’s best to come prepared. I always have a backpack with me now and I carry a portable HVAC unit with me. It’s something I never used to do, but it’s not entirely big or heavy. It’s not even an HVAC unit that’s very expensive, but it actually works great when you are in a small space. It’s great for an elevator or any small room. You simply pull it out, turn it on and adjust the temperature control. It never gets old to see the surprise on people’s faces when they see I’m prepared for being stuck on the elevator. As soon as they see me pull out the portable HVAC unit, they ask if I knew that we were going to be stuck. Sometimes I wonder if those people would have gotten stuck if I were never on the elevator with them. I just feel like a walking bad luck charm and perhaps I should think about taking the stairs. The thing is, I still prefer using the elevator to the stairs because I hate climbing endless flights of stairs! Even though I realize for me, there’s a good chance of getting stuck on the elevator, I’ll always take my chances.
