Now I’ve Got a Reason to Ignore You

Thank God for technology.

Now I have a legitimate reason to ignore you. I know you know I wasn’t going to hold the door open to the elevator, even though I saw you run for it. Did you know that there are 4 elevators that operate in this bank, and if you missed this one, another would be along in about 22 seconds? It’s true. I timed it once.

Now I have a legitimate reason to ignore you. I know you know I wasn’t going to hold the door open to the elevator, even though I saw you run for it. Did you know that there are 4 elevators that operate in this bank, and if you missed this one, another would be along in about 22 seconds? It’s true. I timed it once.

I timed it because I missed one, and then hit the button, and patiently waited for another one to show up. I did NOT make a mad dash for the elevator, flailing my arm in-between the doors to trip the automatic opener so that I could huff-and-puff my way through the doors, awkwardly staring at the three people who calmly entered when it first arrived.

But you know what, I don’t need to spend the whole ride up to 28 staring daggers in your back. Nope. Not anymore. Sure, last week, I would have done exactly that. But this time, I can calmly and blankly stare at the little TV they posted in the elevator, giving me useless news info tips, just so I can ignore you, and you don’t have to make any sort of “sorry” gesture.

Thank GOD for technology.
