It doesn't call the elevator faster? 

What grates on me is the question “is this lift going up or down?”   Look at the arrows,

NorCal'ers generally disapprove of "Cali" unless it's Colombia.  Are your originally from SoCal?  🙂

This includes the morons who'll walk into the foyer, SEE all the lights and numbers lit up above the elevators showing where that one is and STILL walk over and keep punching the button OVER and OVER 🙄 Sigh, like THAT'S gonna speed up the elevator ! (actually it's usually teenagers BUT I have seen grown ups do it, maybe it's 'human nature?) Whatta ya think ?

I couldn't agree more !! Funny thing is wayyyyyy back in the early 80's (The Caveman days) I remember being on the jobsite when I first heard of people carry a NEW fangled toy called a Beeper (and yes they may have existed before 1980 I just never saw EVERYBODY had too have them ! I thought natively WHERE will this madness end ! Surely nothing could be invented to top that.🙄 Boy, was I ever WRONG !! The beeper was just the beginnning.

Come on now, if you think about it life is significantly better with the internet.  Heck, without it right now you would be watching the ol Philco instead of chatting it up on forums!   😀

Oh, just ignore my buddy when he does his 'old coot' routine 🙂 He's not much older than I am and I can't imagine life without Google 🙂

It does amaze me how some people are in such a hurry to get where they are going on a cruise ship...

 

It is not like anything it going anywhere........  and the way they push into the elevator

 

Quite often if the elevators are busy, one will walk up the stairs....but carefully...

I think I've luckily avoided much of the elevator madness I read about here on CC.  However, one that aggravates me is the guy, usually large, who plants hisself in the center of the doors with arms folded and refuses to move so others can board.

If you are around my age, it is kind of an eye-opener to realize that Dick Tracy's watch is now actually old tech.

Beats me.  Must be some old person passive aggressive thingy.  I hate to admit it, but some of my fellow old folks do some really strange things.   Whereas, I of course, would be the definition of normalcy.  Or, is it normality.  Either way.  😊

So the Goal is......... That the world revolves around the person.......... LOL

 

or.....

 

They payed a lot of money to go on their cruise....

So that gives them the right to do what they like....

 

Stand back and let them go....... It gives me time to think about what's for the next meal.

 

and there is the no cooking, cleaning and driving....

 

Smile and have a great cruise  .... 4 sleeps till our next cruise

 

Cheers Don

We never had a Philco. In fact we did not have a TV or a phone till 1952.Our first TV was an Andrea console.

I loved living in the 40’s and 50’s listening to the radio,playing records,etc.
