    I USED to have a list of companies and how to bypass their ‘menus’ and get to a real, live English-speaking sort, but with all good things, it’s found a hiding spot somewhere around here and refuses to show itself.

    “Otis invented the safety brake that prevents the elevator from falling more than a few inches.”

    Jeez. and I thought everybody would catch the misspelling error. Of COURSE I know Otis did the job.. I didn’t get to be almost 80 y/o by keeping my head in the (censored) sand !!

    “the breaks would keep the elevator from falling”

    If it breaks, it’ll keep falling until the brakes work.

    I beg to differ. ‘round the corner is a ’vampire store’ that I get blood drawn for my labs. There’s a little Cuban girl that could get blood from a mosquito and never leave a mark. She’s been put on a ‘float’ assignment and so I had to make do with two girls that couldn’t get blood out of a run-over deer. As a consequence,after 2 weeks, my arm is STILL black and blue from bicep to wrist.. NEXT cycle, I’ll call ahead to see where she is !!
