There are certain things in this world that drive me absolutely nuts, and one of those things is the chronic misuse of elevator buttons. Yes. I know. Sounds ridiculous. But I am completely and 100% serious about this. It’s a problem that has gone unaddressed for far too long.

Here’s the deal. You only need to press the elevator button once. One time. That’s it. Pressing it ten times in five seconds will not make the elevator show up any sooner. Last I checked,  the elevator call button is not an accelerator. It does not have a “warp speed” effect when pressed over and over and over again. When I see people pressing it repeatedly, I have to use every ounce of self-control not to grab their finger and give them a lesson on proper elevator button etiquette. Luckily, I restrain myself.

So how about this. Instead of wasting our time pushing that button to no avail, howsabout we do something that really is fast. Something that really does give speedy results…like today’s installment of Easy Like Sunday Morning.

If you are a patterned paper hoarder, you’ll love this project, because you only need a few supplies and a few minutes to make a stack of pretty & simple cards that are perfect for gift giving.

  1. years ago I saw a “daffy” definition of a made-up combined word: elecelleration = the mistaken belief that repeated pushing of the elevator call button will make it come faster. lovely cards – thanks!

  2. Are those the same people who push the buttons at the crosswalks hoping the light will change faster. Ugh! Congrats on the baby, so much joy a baby brings.

  3. I just bought a Xyron..it’s like you knew!!! I LOL at your elevator annoyance..that is is the same as my express bus bell ringing annoyance. It is stopping at the next stop…its an express it has to stop..don’t ring the bell 5 times, once is sufficient..jeez…Cx
