That reminds me of thoroughly modern Millie. The elevator in their rooming house. There had been a dance team and they used to practice in the elevator. So now the only way to get it to work was you had to tap dance. You get in, push the button, and start dancing. If you don't dance the elevator doesn't move.

In 1962 I began attending college at an (unnamed here) Engineering School along the palisade heights across the Hudson River from NYC. I commuted to school rather than living on campus. One Monday morning I arrived at the 21(#?) story Student Center to find one of the elevators cables being unstrung across the first floor lobby. I asked around and was told this story of what had caused this condition.

 

It seems that the local jock fraternity (Delta Tau Delta, no Greek symbols are available on my tablet) had decided to try an Engineering experiment. The door to the elevator had a small window in it. Through this window, one could see a number painted on the shaft wall corresponding to the floor you were approaching. The frat brothers loaded the elevator to maximum capacity. Understand this was not the “safe load capacity” posted in the inspection notice. It was as many as they could squeeze into the box. Taking the elevator to the top floor, with other brothers posted on each floor to ensure that no one stopped the elevator before it reached the first floor, they began their decent. As the elevator approached the first floor stop all the men in the elevator jumped up, timed to land just as the brakes were applied. When the elevator door opened the floor of the elevator was 1 foot below the first floor surface. As the cable was a multi wrap layup (# of wraps unknown) it appears that the managed to stretch the cable several feet.

 

This is what I was told by one of the elevator mechanics with some fill in information provided by one unnamed culprit of my acquaintance. I was not, nor have I ever been, a Delta Tau Delta brother.
 

That’s the truth as I know it!

It's just me, but I'm willing to bet you couldn't put enough people in there to actually stretch those cables. It's not like there's only one! Just my unknowledgeable opinion.:o

That may be true. I’m an EE so I do not claim to know that much about Mechanical Engineering. It seemed logical at the time. 
 

However, what I wrote is in fact what I was told by at least two parties. One each from either side of the incident. Also, the cable was being replaced as I saw it stretched out across the first floor lobby in all it’s greasy splendor. As I said, “That’s the truth said I know it.”:)


Incidentally, no offense was taken nor intended in my reply. It’s just a recounting of an incident that occurred during my younger years.

I’d bet money that property is government owned in Kaleepornia.

I was in a pawn shop one time, and the owner was telling a story about a customer.

 

Woman comes screeching into the parking lot, jump side of the car while it's still bouncing back and forth from how hard she hit the brakes, and ran in the store saying she needed a gun. "I need a gun! And a bullet!!"

 

When she wouldn't explain he declined to sell her anything, and she ran out and jumped back in the car and peeled off down the street. About 5 minutes later a deputy sheriff's car comes screeching into the parking lot and a guy wearing just a deputies uniform pants and a t-shirt come in asking if they had seen such a woman. They said she had been there. That she wanted to buy a gun and one bullet.

 

"You didn't sell her one did you!??"

 

They told him no, and he went out and jumped in his cop car and charged off down the street.

 

Couple days later they found out what was going on. She was his wife. Came home early and caught him in bed with his girlfriend.

 

If I was in her place I would have wanted two bullets.

I've seen a lot of "sidewalk closed" signs around here. It's where the city is doing repairs to the sidewalk, so they have closed it to prevent pedestrians from walking on the wet concrete. Or even better, to prevent bicyclists from riding through the wet concrete.

Maybe she didn’t want to shoot her best friend. 

 

Bronco Billy, I believe.

Quite memorable piece of dialogue.

 

What happened?

I came home one day and caught my wife in bed with my best friend.

What did you do?

I shot her.

Shot her?

He was my best friend.
