I've never seen an elevator without the alarm. I wonder if it was broken?

Self Rescue?

Can't you just climb out through the ceiling like they do in the movies?

He was an office worker returning from a smoke break. Most smoking office workers aren't capable of jumping up and grabbing through the ceiling, then pulling themselves up. A few of us can do it, but we climb for a living.

When I left my computer job to start a tree business, the guys I worked with thought I had completely lost my mind. Why would anyone leave a perfectly good air-conditioned building and get dirty and sweaty, have to lift heavy things, and not know how much money (if any) they are going to make. Then they would look at each other with a puzzled look on their face and go back to trying to figure out why the MDACs wouldn't update on the Denver server or whatever the latest problem was.
