BUT if this is correct, then WOW. I wish I'd known that before I moved out of my old 16th floor flat.
I've just moved out of a flat on the 15th floor after living there for seven years, and you tell me this NOW?
Cool tip, though. Cheers.
but I know the self important clunges in the building like to do the same thing by holding down the button for their floor. Those sorts of people are essentially a waste of skin.
I need a lift and i need one now!
I also like this
in the building that lift is in.
It could be that is a lift in Japan where they consider the number four to be unlucky
must be that
Also, jury is out on veracity
and yes I agree
but me, I'd rather have the crystal.
This time I'm going up on the INSIDE
is what I whispered in your dad's ear while I mounted him this morning
The lift I was in the other day had all the lights off but I guy got in and pressed something like the close door and a number and one other and then it switched the lights on. I was actually amazed and, in fact, I may email my friend whose dad works for Otis to ask for the lift secrets of the universe.
show those pesky Schindler's who's No.1
as my friend would DEFINITELY have wowed us all with any tricks he knew by now.
My mate used to be convinced there was a similar thing with pelican crossings that allowed the feds to get an 'instant green man'. You know, when they were chasing crims and shit.
(although, if it's in asia then it might be true, I suppose)
In this country, modern lifts have an override key for the emergency services' use.
prevents it from stopping at other floors in my office building. the caretaker told me :)
