Hell is a revolving door

I hate revolving doors. I go through about 800 every day. Ok, maybe 6, but it feels like 800. No two revolving doors are the same. Some are heavy, some sneakily light. The people going through them scare me too. The guy that has to get outside right now, with no concern for anyone else in their glassed in pie slice? He's often in the same revolving door as me. I almost have to go around twice, as I'm just not as fast as he is, and can't vault myself out like him. I also often have the old lady with the cane, or the traveler with the suitcase, or the person who refuses to push themselves. I stand there, I wait. I nearly had a standoff the other day with one lady who refused to share the responsiblity of making the door Revolve. She stood there. So I stood there. She looked over her shoulder, pleadingly. I gave her the 'oh, helllll nnoooo' look back. She somehow used her purse strap to nudge the door in the right direction. I hate revolving doors.

I dislike the kind that are slow and stop if touched. The reason is that EVERYONE touches them. Ugh.

See!! The revolving door inventor is Satan.

Last summer, they fixed the revolving doors in our building.

Wait, let me try that again: "fixed."

I think they were taking out the glass to clean them, or... something. All I know is, when they put them back, they tightened them to all hell. I have to throw all my weight against the damned thing to get it to start moving.

I think the building management people secretly hate us.

L - I think building mgmt is toying with you. They did it for their amusement.

Hell said...

I'm not a revolving door.

But if I was, I'd be nicer to you.

Von said...

Aw, thanks Hell.

Adorable Girlfriend said...

Hell, you should try being nice period. Nice is something AG is learning and it feels sooo good. Give it and peace a try. :)

Von said...

Perhaps a revision - In THIS instance, this Hell is a revolving door, as opposed to hell the person....
