i take steps to avoid elevators
I first glanced at this post then scrolled past it thinking “Why would you avoid elevators?” Then I realized exactly /why/ any targeted person would do that. When I thought this I became insanely afraid for myself just at the thought of using elevators. It is a sad time.
it is a very sad time and i actually hate elevators but this was a pun my love read it againGod damn it.
