The Cruise Lady: Out Pullllllleeeeeezzze!

Updated 970 days ago

OMG! On her most recent cruise, Lorraine stepped into an elevator for a short three floor ride to meet friends (in the bar, of course) – and it became a zoo! On floor 7 she entered joining five passengers – stopping at floor 6, five more persons (one driving a “scooter”) crowded in – and at floor 5, four more literally “shoved” themselves into the already “overstuffed” transport.

By this time, Lorraine was “stuck” into a back corner being “squashed” by a rather large gentleman(?) who was dancing the Cha-Cha on her toes.

The next stop was her “hop-off” point (or so she thought). The doors opened, she politely voiced “out, please” to a mass of persons who had apparently suffered sudden deafness – a louder “out please” was to no avail – and finally another “OUT PLEASE (peppered with semi-mild expletives)” and finally a full two-hand push to the back of “Mr. Cha-Cha” along with a very loud “LET ME OFF THIS (#*^@$*) ELEVATOR NOW!!

Finally, (after several shocked gasps from the others) she made her way out, and turned to the crowd with a “THANK YOU ALL FOR YOUR LACK OF COMMON COURTESY!”

For Heaven’s sake folks, what has happened to just that? Has no one ever heard of the practice of stepping-off the elevator to allow passengers out and then simply stepping back in?

None of those rude passengers would have missed the “food trough” for 3 seconds of practicing just that! But, I guess Lorraine did give them something to talk about at dinner that evening – LOL!
