This is a sad story and if you are afraid of elevators
Its the story of Nicholas White ( an employee of Business Week) who was stuck in an elevator for 41 HOURS!
The surveillance video shows him endlessly circling the elevator box and it “. . .was recorded at forty times regular speed, which makes him look like a bug in a box”
The last paragraph is what really grabbed me. . .
Looking back on the experience now, with a peculiarly melancholic kind of bewilderment, he recognizes that he walked onto an elevator one night, with his life in one kind of shape, and emerged from it with his life in another. Still, he now sees that it wasn’t so much the elevator that changed him as his reaction to it. He has come to terms with the trauma of the experience but not with his decision to pursue a lawsuit instead of returning to work. If anything, it prolonged the entrapment. He won’t blame the elevator
He won’t blame the elevator.
