What is this, an elevator for ants?

" Upon realizing that he had properly wedged himself into an unyielding spot in the tight elevator, he fingered his cell phone out of his pockets and called police to come rescue him."

Reminded me of this from the IT Crowd.

That would sure beat the system one restaurant I worked at had for storing produce, and other stuff in the basement.  A wood slide was used to send the stuff down, with one guy at the bottom catching and stacking.  Then, only to have to carry the stuff back up the stairs when needed.  50 lb boxes of lettuce and potatoes suck the most.

It made me miss the crappy lift I used at a furniture store.  It was a basic winch lifting a wooden platform, used for taking the furniture to different floors.  It had zero safety features, and sometimes, someone had to ride it to keep a couch from falling over and getting caught in the walls, because the lift had no walls itself.

/OSHA would flip their desk if they saw some of the places I've worked.

Just another reason the new version sucks. That would never happen to the old Garret.

Not in the same package.  They were the two heaviest.

I think there is a Bill Engvall joke in there somewhere.
