  1. This little boy wanted to feel like a badass.

    So when he was certain no one was looking, he decided to indulge in some casual vandalism by peeing on a lift’s control panel.

    The thug life chose me, mom!

    As a lift professional, my reaction to this is moderate surprise combined with total repulsion. Not only is this thing horribly disrespectful – it’s also terribly difficult to clean. Everyone in that building is going to be getting a twice daily dose of old urine stench for at least a week.

    The worst part is that it’s hardly ever worth the effort of tracking down the culprit… too much effort is involved in getting the camera records, identifying the wrong-doer, all to only obtain flat-out denials when you confront them.

    But here…

    Here… something magical happened.

    First, all the floors buttons flashed on and off. The door began to slide open and slam shut by just a few centimeters at a time. And the whole lift suddenly jarred to a stop.

    And THEN the lights went off completely, trapping our wanna-be thug in a dark den of urine-soaked air. For two whole hours, he was stuck there breathing in his own mess.

    Some might call this instant karma, or simply say that he got what was coming.

    Me? I know to thank Upanddownistos, Greek God of Lifts. That one has a salty sense of humor, and by Zeus do I love it!
