Every few weeks I take our office recycling home. Today happens to be one of those days.
I boxed up the recycling, loaded it on the dolly & headed to the elevator. I hopped on, hit the button for 1st floor. The doors closed, the car started to go down & then stopped. I hear a technician working on the elevator & talking on his radio.
Me: "Hello?" (knocking on the door)
Tech: "The cars out of order ma'am, you'll have to wait."
Five minutes go by as I listen to the workers talking.
Me: "Umm am I in any danger??"
Tech: "No ma'am the cars closed for a bit though."
Me: "I'm in the car..."
Tech: "Oh, I'm so sorry, I didn't know you were in the car. Hang on we'll get it going" (He calls on the radio for the power to be turned on.)
They let me out on 1st floor.
When I came back inside I took the stairs up to my office, carrying the dolly.
