  • Guessing Game.

    Guesses are welcome, without limit.

    A man lives on the 22nd floor of an apartment building..
    Every day when he returns home from work, he takes the elevator and gets off on the 16th floor.
    He then takes the stairs up to the 22nd floor.
    This is his daily routine unless another person is in the elevator or it is raining, in which case he gets off the elevator at the 22nd floor.
    Why?

    He's a midget and can't reach any buttons above the one for the 16th floor. If it's raining out, he's carrying an umbrella and can use that. If there's someone else in the elevator, he can ask them to push the button.

    (Yawn)

      That one usually takes a bunch of guesses.

        I don't remember specifically hearing that one before, but for some reason, as soon as I read it, I thought of a guy in a wheelchair not being able to reach the buttons. But since there were also stairs involved, there couldn't be a wheelchair in the picture, so ....

        Probably the scenario came to mind because we had trainings and inspections at work not long ago for compliance with the Americans with Disabilities guidelines.

          Edit: Funny that I mention that but used the word "midget." I should be ashamed.

            I think they are called "little people" now.

              I think "little people" is more demeaning. "Midget" at least has a bit of character to it.

              I've also spoken with many "Native Americans" who hate the term, preferring to be called by their specific tribe, or even preferring "Indian." I absolutely hate it when a writer says that a word is "a Native American word meaning ...." , considering that there were hundreds if not thousands of different "Native American" languages.
