I rode the the elevator one morning while listening to my iPod. I kept fiddling with the buttons to look for my favorite tunes, so I was only half aware that a lady got on at the 10th floor. This same lady pushed the button for one floor up.
Right then, my iPod stopped working and I muttered “You’ve gotta be kidding me” (as I’m hitting forward and rewind). The aforementioned woman gave me a really dirty look as she stepped off the elevator.
I wanted to make amends and call out “No, I wasn’t talking about you…” But she briskly walked away and the doors closed.
The elevator’s only other passenger asked “Tough morning?”
I guess so.
Ever have moments like this? Where’s the re-do button?
