Jackie's Forget Me Nots

No vase can overflow if you never fill it up.

Thursdays Thought is going to be a weekly feature on my blog, I think. The idea comes from Louise@Well that’s just terrific

thursmemeDon’t you just hate it when people use the elevator to only go up one floor? What is wrong with taking the stairs? I mean it wouldn’t hurt. If I lived on the second floor I wouldn’t want to wait around for the elevator when the stairs are quicker unless I had something heavy to move like a couch or perhaps a heavy grocery haul. It’s inconsiderate of others when you hold up the elevator. Our elevator is especially old and slow.

I live on the 8th floor and have occasionally used the stairs for excercise.

Today when I went to use the pop machine in the lobby I saw 3 big people standing around waiting for the elevator. I got into the same elevator and they pushed 2. I thought “really guys? You can’t take the stairs?” I didn’t dare say anything but is it any wonder they’re fat? If they only exercised a bit more then maybe they’d understand they need to lose a few pounds.

    Perhaps. Or perhaps they have some illness besides obesity that makes them “fat”. I’m a fatty. And if I have to go up even one flight of stairs (and I’ve done them — climbed stairs up to eight or ten stories before) NOW I cannot. Well I COULD, but the EMS people clutter up the stairs, making it necessary for fit people to take the elevator. So do falling bodies. My knees are shot. Yes, it’s my own fault they’re in the shape they are in, but it’s also genetics. It feels as if someone is stabbing knives in my joints as I walk up, and I cannot breathe when I reach the top (hence the remark about falling bodies). I tend to go very VERY slowly because of the pain and the restrictions to my breathing and people in a hurry (which fit people often are) are impeded by my presence on their stairs. See why I take the elevator? It’s for the continued well being of everyone..

      Hi, I’m a fatty too . I don’t think there was anything wrong with their legs or anything else really. They were young and strong , that’s what was odd.

    People can’t complain about how long the stairs take to get to the next floor. A little positivity can kill these people. Careful, those young people may be as physically fragile that pushing an elevator button is challenging. 😉 Good start. I went race relations on a stray thought today.
