My colleague got stuck in one today, I got stuck in one as a child, fireman saved me


#3

There have been plenty of opportunities in work though, which is partly when I don’t use it.


#4

WEEEEEEEEEEEEEELLLLLLLLLLLLLLL


#5

The lifts at university used to break down all the time. Got stuck in there with a model of the Ouseburn valley once.


#6

I have not, but (and perhaps rather weirdly) it’s one of those things I’d love to happen.


#7

I put yes

It’s happened a few times due to dodgy workplace lifts - but I’ve always been released within a few minutes

Does that count as stuck?


#8

Yep. 45 minutes with two mates. Luckily we had phones and no one needed to pee. Or poo, for that matter.


#9

Yep been stuck in a lift.

Also been stuck in a paternoster.


#10

My boyfriend and I got stuck in a lift in Berlin and I really needed a poo and he really needed a wee.


#11

Got stuck in one just after it started descending, so we were slightly between floors. Had to pull open the doors and jump up and out - could have been nasty if the lift had started again.


#12

i definitely have been but I don’t remember when. Probably in school…


#13

Did you both hold it in?


#14

We did. Although it was close. We were on our way to a rooftop pub thing and I think there might have been only one toilet. I didn’t even ask if he minded I went first.

I now never get into a lift if I even slightly need a poo or a wee. Even at work.


#15

U should never do that as there was an incident in a M&S service lift where a staff member got decapitated when trying to climb out of the lift when it stopped between floors and then restarted.


#16

Yep. Got stuck in a 4 person lift with 5 people in it in Athens. Must’ve been 30 something degrees outside. Possibly the worst thing ever.


#17

Despite having lots of contact with lifts throughout my varied and wonderful life, I’ve only ever known lifts to fail here where I work at a University. They are essentially never working and seem to only exist so technically we’re not in breach of disability laws.


#18

WHEEEEEEYYYY!!!

Oh…

Although if you’re an architect maybe that’s about the same thing?


#19

lovely contours…

Always thought getting stuck in a lift would be fine as I could have a sit down, read my book or play games on my mobile.

Actually got stuck in a lift with 9 other colleagues, including my heavily pregnant boss. It was HELL.
