Favorite recent elevator comment:

An ancient elevator in the Court House, complete with sliding grate door and an 'operator' in uniform, perched on a stool in the corner, 'manning the lift'.

Me: pensive, nervous, riding up to the top floor to testify in a criminal trial, hoping some perv gets a LONG sentence for the rape of a 5 yr old child.

Ancient elevator operator(AEO), looking at my badge:
I’ve seen you before.
A social worker, huh?
How long you been doing that?

Me: 31 years.

AEO: as he opens the door and I exit:
Wow, I’m surprised you can walk so good; that takes some big balls!

Me: smiling all the way into court…
pretty damn proud of the walk I’m walking– even if I can’t wear big girl heels anymore!
