Psycho Elevator

We decided to take the kids out to do something special the other day. We headed out to the Civil Mall where they have a small Nepal style "Chuck E. Cheese." It was on the 5th floor of the mall. Normally we take the escalator but they weren't working, and the kids were very excited about taking the elevator because of the glass side. They wanted to be able to look out and see the mall as we went to the top.

We got on the elevator and started towards the 5th floor. At the 4th floor some people got on the elevator. We again pressed the 5th floor button. But the elevator went down to the 2nd floor. Even the Nepali people on the elevator were confused and kept pressing the 5th floor button. Then the elevator went down to the 1st floor where we picked up about 10 people besides the 7 that were already there. Everyone was talking about the crazy elevator, and wondering if it was going to actually work We pressed the 5th floor again and it took us to the  2nd floor Where we had to tell people they weren't allowed to get on. With as full as it was they still tried to get on. It was very strange.

We finally made it to the top, and decided maybe we should take the stairs on the way down.

  1. Well, it is much more work to carry a bunch of people up than it is to carry them down. Lazy elevator?
