I use the elevator approximately 4 times a day, because I live and work on the 7th floor. It would be more healthy to use stairs instead, I know.. :oops:

When I was a student I had a job in a real estate company where I had to make short interviews with tenants in office buildings. So I used tons of elevators then, maybe 20 or 30 on some days, each up and down. And I never got stuck in those months. But in the years after that job I got stuck in the university, in a department store, and at home. :(

I'm living at the 6th floor an I'm very lazy. So you can guess, how many times I have to use the elevator... :)

If our elevator ist destroyed, I have to stay at home until the elevator ist okay again. Or I only can leave my home and have to wait outside until the elevator has been repaired. In the wintertime it can be very strange, to sleep under bridges... :cry:

What do you mean? How often the elevator is destroyed or how often I have to sleep unter a bridge :wink: ?

Okay - the elevator is one time a year destroyed, maybe. But the firm, that has to repair it, is very fast mostly, it's lucky. Until now, I was successful in avoiding to sleep under a bridge... :)

Do you ever look at the maker's name of the elevator? A friend of mine once phoned with this fantastic observation:

"I'm standing in Schindler's Lift!"

This poll reminds me what happened last Friday when I was on a working gig at Turku New Shipyard. There's an almost ready cruise ship for Caribbean Sea.

I was going for lunch with my workmate and when we stepped out from the board we saw ambulances and a helicopter. Later we got to know that a man had squeezed to death between lift and the lift well.

He was 55-year old Danish electrician, working for a subcontractor. He was doing some final settings for the lift when the accident happened. It happened not too faraway from the engine room where I was working. There were flags at half-mast at the shipyard gate when we left.

So, be careful with lifts. :cry:

I use them maybe once a week when visiting my friends in the town. I live in the country, my next door neighbour is 2Km away so we don't have elevators out here. Could be useful after a glass of wine, but I'll manage. :roll:

I have used elevators a couple a times a week, but no I rarely come in buildings with an elevator. So some times a year, I see an elevator from the inside...

What a horrible accident ... :cry:

The most impressing elevator I used was the one in the television-tower of Berlin :roll: Take a look at the following URL: www.berlinerfernsehturm.de - it's famous! This elevator goes so fast, that you have the effect you know from travelling by planes or from driving in the mountains: The crack in your ears... :wink:

I use elevator over 10 times in workday. When i leave home, i don't use it. When i'm going to smoke during workday, i use elevator because place where i'm working is 4th floor. When i go to home i sometimes use elevator if i have not energy for climbing to 4th floor.
