OK. It’s time we had a heart-to-heart conversation. This will be as hard on me as it will be on you. But I’ve got something very important to say. So please listen carefully.
Stop taking the busy hospital staff elevators one floor up.
Now, I’m not speaking to those employees pushing heavy equipment or transporting bodies to the morgue. To those employees, welcome to our elevator! We’d be happy to make some space for you. I never mind a toe poking into my back, as I understand you’ve got somewhere important to be as well.
No, I’m taking about the employees waiting for a staff elevator to transport them one floor.
Now, I know you are exhausted. We’ve all been there. I know you think you cannot physically muster up the strength to conquer even one flight of stairs. We understand. I know you are thinking, “Well, it’s already here so I’ll just grab it.” But don’t.
Because you can do it. I believe in you. And it will get easier over time. This week, try just one flight. Next week, try walking up one flight and continuing to chat with a friend. Who knows? Maybe in a few weeks you will be able to concur two flights. And won’t that just feel great?
It’ll be a hell of a lot faster than waiting for those staff elevators. And everyone will stop giving you the stink eye, and calling you a lazy piece of sh*t.
Kisses and hugs!
Employee with Office on the Very Top Floor
