It irritates the crap out of me. Stairs are good for people! Much healthier and more energy-efficient (well, not counting human energy) than taking the elevators.
For a long time, I talked security into opening the stairwell on 1 for me, and then I texted my accounting buddy and got her to come open the door on our floor (9).
But then building management determined that I should not be permitted to take the stairs. Major irritation.
Now, on days I run to work, I take the elevator up to 9, go to my office and check email while grabbing my shower bag and outfit for the day, and then I go fill my water bottle, then I head down the stairs to 1. I prop the door open slightly behind me. And when I get to 1, where the gym and locker rooms are, I prop the door open slightly.
I shower and get ready in the locker room, and about 30% of the time, the stairwell door has stayed propped open. If that's the case, I trek on up to 9. If the stairwell door has shut, very rarely I will take the elevator to 2 and then take the stairs up to 9. Usually, if the stairwell on 1 is locked, I'm lazy and I just enjoy the ride up to 9.
Well, today, the stairwell on 1 stayed open, so on the way up to my office, I took pictures of my current question.
What do you think?
I wish the quality of the photo was higher. It was not there last week. Is that cotton candy? Or is something like asbestos or insulation? Would I be able to tell if I touched it? Or would I have to taste it?
