Today was an interesting day for me I would like to add. For the first time ever throughout the 23 years of my life, I have never been stuck in the lift until today. To add, I was alone and it was dark. It happened quite sudden and I didn’t even have time to panic.
I just pressed the alarm (call) button while waiting for an answer from the outside world. I stared at my phone for the longest time and making sure that my head was freed from all the scary stories that I have heard from friends. Funny how the mind works when you’re alone in the dark.
So staying there in the lift, helpless without any phone reception…times like it would be handy if you were Macgyver. While waiting for help to arrive, I was trying to block my mind from going to “dark” side. But I couldn’t help it, keeping my focus on the phone playing with it to give me light trying not to think that there is something spooky at the corner of the lift or above me for that matter.
Once help arrived, I still maintain my oh-I’m-so-cool posture and head down to the basement to get to my car. Once inside the car I called my colleague and told my experience to her. Funnily enough, she was more in the state of panic instead of me…when I was the once that experienced it.
What a day.
