So, as much as I berate my colleagues for their ridiculous tendencies, there I times where I join the rest of them.
id est: today in my apartment's elevator. one of our elevators has been on the fritz.
One day, it works, the next it won't!
I get lucky enough to pick it up on the main level and I reach the 5th floor and a man gets on,
so I tell him we are about to climb another 6 floors.
He asks me, "when are they going to fix that other elevator?"
As the door opens, I answer, "Well, it has been working intermittently"
He replies, "She says it's been working intermittently."
Mental head slap.
