the woman in the elevator

”...I can’t stop thinking of this peculiar incident. There is a woman, somehow in her fifties, a Friday afternoon, in an office building. The woman prepares to leave, in time for the weekend closures. She proceeds to take the elevator down, when it abruptly stops, seemingly without any reason. She freezes. Overwhelmed by a sense of guilt and in a way, grief, she is unable to activate the emergency button. The embarrassment of possibly stirring a fuss, keeps her in the elevator until Monday morning..”

A quiet, thought provoking finish urban legend, told in Swedish by Sara Margrethe O., recorded by Sam R., acting as amateur anthropologist while listening to joiks during Destination Helsinki. Open the elevator door here
